Debt ETFs that invest in bonds or debt securities are known as bond or debt ETFs. They thrive during economic recessions because investors pull their money out of the stock market and into bonds (for example, government treasury bonds or those issues by companies regarded as financially stable). These ETFs are linked to money or debt funds, with the aim of providing money market returns.
Liquid BeES (Goldman Sachs Liquid Exchange Traded Scheme) is the first money market ETF (Exchange Traded Fund) in the world. The investment objective of the Scheme is to provide money market returns. Liquid BeES will invest in a basket of call money, short-term government securities and money market instruments of short and medium maturities. It is listed and traded on the NSE - Capital Market Segment and is settled on a T+2 Rolling basis.
