Domestic Fixed Income

The NPS seeks to maximize sustained long-term returns by holding bonds until their maturity and diversifying investments by type, issuer, industry (for corporate bonds) and maturity. In this process, the NPS pursues excess returns by adjusting duration within a certain range in consideration of several factors including credit ratings of issuers and spread over risk-free bonds.
