NPS-II account portfolio of leading fund managers
The National Pension System (NPS) is a retirement-oriented saving scheme that invests in market-linked securities. By investing in the NPS scheme, you can invest in the capital markets and create an inflation-adjusted retirement corpus for your golden years.
The NPS scheme has two types of accounts – Tier I and Tier II. A tier I account is mandatory for all NPS subscribers. To invest in the NPS scheme, you must open a Tier I account. The account is rigid and offers limited withdrawals.
Tier II account, on the other hand, is very flexible as it allows easy withdrawals. However, you can only open the account when you have a Tier I account. The investment features of a Tier II account are as follows –
- There are three different funds to invest in – Equity (E), Corporate debt (C) and Government bonds (G).
- Central Government employees have one more fund option called the scheme tax saver fund.
- The fund management fees are limited to 0.09%, which is very low compared to direct equity mutual fund schemes.
- The equity portfolio of the Tier II account primarily invests in the top 200 companies of the stock market.
