Want to invest in mutual funds at minimum risk? Then making an investment in the top-rated arbitrage funds could be the perfect choice for you. An arbitrage fund is nothing but a type of equity mutual fund that encashes the difference in the prices between cash and futures markets. While cash market price is the current trading price of any fund, futures market price is the one that fund managers estimate for a future date.

For example, the price of a fund is ₹ 500 in the cash market, while ₹ 1,500 in the future market, so the arbitrage will be ₹ 500 by buying it from the cash market and selling in the future market. It is just an example of how much return you can get via investing in top-rated arbitrage funds.

Talking about the rating of these arbitrage funds, it usually ranges from a score of 1 to 5. Top-rated Arbitrage funds generally tend to have a rating closer to 5. There are a few rating agencies in the country that give the rating to these funds.
