HDFC AMC To Take Over Essel Group Debt from Its FMPs HDFC Asset Management Company (AMC), which manages the schemes under HDFC Mutual Fund, on Monday told its investors in fixed maturity plans (FMPs), that it will purchase up to Rs500 crore worth non-convertible debentures (NCDs) of Essel group companies held in the FMPs.
