Wondering what an NFO is? It expands to ‘New Fund Offer’. As the full form of the acronym suggests, it is a new offering proposed by a Mutual Fund house whenever a new fund is launched. Its purpose is to provide various investment opportunities for investors across the whole spectrum of Equity and Debt. It will help investors to diversify their investments.
An offer price (usually ₹10) is set for a unit of an NFO. It is thrown open to investors only for a limited period of time. During this phase, they can buy the units of the scheme.
