Inverse debt funds and ETFs (exchange-traded funds) are financial instruments that move in the opposite direction of their target index. For instance, if the index is falling, the inverse debt funds will go up. Since such instruments move in the opposite direction of the target index, they serve as a useful hedging tool. Generally, such funds aim to generate a return equaling negative 1 to 3 times the daily return of the reference index. In this article, we will take a look at the 10 best performing Trading Inverse Debt funds. Trading funds are more useful to active traders than to long-term investors.
