Who should Invest?
For all class of investors i.e. Corporates , HNIs , MNIs & Retail who have a pre 
decided investment horizon. 
 - As a prudent investor one needs to have a proper asset allocation in place 
   and FMPs offer that much-needed stability to the investment portfolio. 
 - Thus, even aggressive investors who normally prefer equity investments 
   should invest a part of their corpus in FMPs.
Investors who are not satisified with the returns from conventional 
fixed income avenues
FMPs are ideal for 
 - Risk-averse investors who seek safe avenues for investment and 
   in the process keep money in the form of bank deposits 
 - Investors who want to park money for a fixed period of time with a 
   view to meeting certain financial goals in near future
The Tax Angle
In the case of FMPs the return can be in the form of dividend or 
capital appreciation depending upon the option of the investor 
 - Dividend is tax free in the hands of the investor while the fund 
   has to incur a Dividend Distribution Tax 
 - In the case of investments for more than a year and under 
   growth option, long-term capital gains tax at 11.33% (without 
   indexation benefit) and 22.66% (with indexation benefit) is applicable
