About Fund Category
Arbitrage fund leverages on the price differential of an asset (like stocks) in the cash and derivatives market to deliver low volatility returns. Being hybrid in nature, they are allowed to invest a significant portion towards equity and equity related instruments. Due to this, the capital gains from arbitrage funds are taxed in the same way as equity funds.
