The fund is ideal for overnight or weekend parking and has no exit load. IDFC Overnight Fund offers very high liquidity to investors and hence is ideal for corporates, treasuries, institutions, and individuals who are looking for high liquidity along with low-interest rate and credit risk. IDFC Overnight Fund will be managed by Mr. Harshal Joshi, Vice President, Fund Management, IDFC AMC.
