During the first period of its operation (till mid-1920s) mutual funds were in formative and experimental conditions. The years from 1900 to 1914 were marked by an increasing tendency on the part of British investment manager to invest their clients’ funds in American securities. this strategy enabled the survival of the industry. The pace of changes is very rapid. By the end of 1997 there were $237 billion of assets managed by 1455 open ended funds. Unit trusts conform to the basic pattern of openended investment funds in UK. However. Investment managers enjoyed huge powers about the sale and purchase of securities. The first unit trust appeared in 1931.

the greater the potential reward.RISK VS. At the cornerstone of investing is the basic principal that the greater the risk you take. that causes investors to worry. This volatility can be caused by a number of factors -. You might find it helpful to remember that all financial investments will fluctuate. So risk has two sides: it causes the value of your investments to fluctuate. We all fear the possibility that a stock we invest in will fall substantially. there is no guarantee that you will end up with more money when you withdraw your investment than what you started out with. 29 . Even so. refers to the volatility -. It is this variability. The first thing that has to be kept in mind is that when you invest in mutual funds. you get what you pay for and you get paid a higher return only when you're willing to accept more volatility. The loss of value in your investment is what is considered risk in investing. REWARD:Having understood the basics of mutual funds the next step is to build a successful investment portfolio. Before you can begin to build a portfolio. There are very few perfectly safe havens and those simply don't pay enough to beat inflation over the long run. one should understand some other elements of mutual fund investing and how they can affect the potential value of your investments over the years. Here’s why. That is the potential of loss is always there. and those with the greater chance of losing value are also the funds that can produce the greater returns for you over time. Risk then.interest rate changes.the up and down activity in the markets and individual issues that occurs constantly over time. but it is precisely the reason you can expect to earn higher returns. inflation or general economic conditions. the opportunity for investment growth that is possible through investments in mutual funds far exceeds that concern for most investors. Or stated in another way. Different types of mutual funds have different levels of volatility or potential price change. uncertainty and potential for loss. But it is this very volatility that is the exact reason that you can expect to earn a higher long-term return from these investments than from a savings account.

Consider these common types of risk and evaluate them against potential rewards when you select an investment.TYPES OF RISKS TYPES OF RISK Market Inflation investment Interest rate Exchange rate Employee Credit Government policy All investments involve some form of risk. 30 .

When this happens. therefore. INTEREST RATE RISK:Changing interest rates affect both equities and bonds in many ways. Investors are reminded that "predicting" which way rates will go is rarely successful. A diversified portfolio can help in offsetting these changes. EXCHANGE RISK:A number of companies generate revenues in foreign currencies and may have investments or expenses also denominated in foreign currencies. 2. INFLATION RISK:Sometimes referred to as "loss of purchasing power. This change in price is due to "market risk". you run the risk that you'll actually be able to buy less. 5. MARKET RISK:At times the prices or yields of all the securities in a particular market rise or fall due to broad outside influences. Changes in exchange rates may. not more.1. Also known as systematic risk. 31 . Inflation risk also occurs when prices rise faster than your returns. 3."

necessary to attract key personnel and also to retain them to meet the changing environment and challenges the sector offers. the any of the schemes are linked to the equity performance of such companies and may be more volatile than a more diversified portfolio of equities. Intellectual properties of the key employees of the respective companies. Failure or inability to attract/retain such qualified key personnel may impact the prospects of the companies in the particular sector in which the fund invests. therefore. 32 . investments will be predominantly in equities of select companies in the particular sectors. trained and motivated personnel is very critical for the success of industries in few sectors. 7. It is. Having looked at the various types of mutual funds. Keep in mind the points listed below and you could at least marginalize your investment risk.6.e. Choose the wrong fund and you would have been better off keeping money in a bank fixed deposit. An industries' key asset is often the personnel who run the business i. availability of qualified.

INVESTMENT RISKS:The sect oral fund schemes. Given the ever-changing complexion of few industries and the high obsolescence levels. Accordingly. one has to now go about selecting a fund suiting your requirements. CHOOSING A FUND:Mutual fund is the best investment tool for the retail investor as it offers the twin benefits of good returns and safety as compared with other avenues such as bank deposits or stock investing.

But remember that all funds carry some level of risk. A reading of the fund’s prospectus is a must to learn about its investment strategy and the risk that it will expose you to. DOES IT SUIT YOUR RISK PROFILE? Certain sector-specific schemes come with a high-risk high-return tag. Most prefer the balanced schemes. If the investor is totally risk averse he can opt for pure debt schemes with little or no risk. Growth and pure equity plans give greater returns than pure debt plans but their risk is higher. the portfolio manager who generated the fund’s successful performance may no longer be managing the fund. how it has performed in the past and the kind of returns it is offering to the investor over a period of time. Just because a fund invests in government or corporate bonds does not mean it does not have significant risk. KNOW YOUR FUND MANAGER:The success of a fund to a great extent depends on the fund manager. Funds with higher rates of return may take risks that are beyond your comfort level and are inconsistent with your financial goals. which invest in the equity and debt markets. The same fund managers manage most successful funds. Thinking about your long-term investment strategies and tolerance for risk can help you decide what type of fund is best suited for you. READ THE PROSPECTUS:-The prospectus says a lot about the fund. Also check out the two-year and one-year returns for consistency. How did these funds perform in the bull and bear markets of the immediate past? Tracking the performance in the bear market is particularly important because the true test of a portfolio is often revealed in how little it falls in a bad market. has the fund manager or strategy changed recently? For instance. Ask before investing. 33 .PAST PERFORMANCE:While past performance is not an indicator of the future it does throw some light on the investment philosophies of the fund. Such plans are suspect to crashes in case the industry loses the market men’s fancy.

34 . you should consider how your interest in that fund affects the overall diversification of your investment portfolio. sponsors. The legal structure also drives the inter-relationships between these constituents. LEGAL STRUCTURE OF MUTUAL FUNDS:Mutual funds have a unique structure not shared with other entities such as companies or firms. Maintaining a diversified and balanced portfolio is key to maintaining an acceptable level of risk. because it determines the rights and responsibilities of the fund’s constituents viz. the right equity mutual fund will pay off big -. WHAT IT COSTS YOU? A fund with high costs must perform better than a low-cost fund to generate the same returns for you.HOW WILL THE FUND AFFECT THE DIVERSIFICATION OF YOUR PORTFOLIO? When choosing a mutual fund. Finally. It is important for employees. Like stocks. transfer agents and of course. Similarly. agents and investors to be aware of the special mature of this structure.if you have the patience. custodians. it makes little sense to hold on to a fund that lags behind the total market year after year. It is useful to understand the mutual fund structure in two developed markets-USA and the UK before discussing the structure in India. don’t pick a fund simply because it has shown a spurt in value in the current rally.

THE SEVEN S MODEL:The Seven Framework first appeared in “The Art of Japanese management” by Richard Pascale and Anthony Athos in 1981. They had been looking at how Japanese industry had been so successful, at around the same time that Tom Peters and Robert Waterman were exploring what made a company excellent. The Seven S model was born at a meeting of the four authors in 1978. It went on to appear in “In Search of Excellence” by Peters and Waterman, and was taken up as a basic tool by the global management consultancy McKinsey: It’s sometimes known as the McKinsey 7S model. This is because, Tom Peters and Robert Waterman, were consultants at McKinsey& Co at that time. The model starts on the premise that an organization is not just Structure, but consists of seven elements i.e., Strategy, structure, systems, style, staff, super ordinate goals (also known as shared values), and skills. According to them, managers, need to take account of all seven of the factors to be sure of successful implementation of a strategy-large or small. All the seven Ss are interdependent, and proper attention should be paid to each one of them. Those seven elements are distinguished in so called hard S’s and soft S’s. The hard elements are feasible and easy to identify. They can be found in strategy statement, corporate plans, organizational charts and other documentations. The four soft S’s however, are hardly feasible. They are difficult to describe since capabilities, values and elements of corporate culture are continuously developing and changing. They are highly determined by the people at work in the organization. Therefore it is much more difficult to plan or to influence the characteristics of the soft elements. Although the soft factors are below the surface, they can have a great impact of the hard Structures, Strategies and Systems of the organization.

Formula: For change in Absolute termsNAV at the end of the period-NAV at the beginning of the period For change in percentage terms (Absolute change in NAV/ NAV at the beginning)* 100 Limitations:This measure does not always give the correct picture. the stated objective of the fund and even depending on the current financial market conditions. whether he invests directly in the markets or indirectly through mutual funds. (b) Total Return:66 . Some of the most common measure are- (a) Change in NAV:If an investor wants to compute the Return On Investment between two dates. he can simply use the Per Unit Net Asset Value at the beginning and end periods.Portfolio Analysis limited to Birla sunlife Asset Management Company Limited. One must find the most suitable measure depending on the type of fund. There are many measures of fund performance. and calculate the change in the value of the NAV between the two dates in absolute and percentage terms. and make the right decisions. It is suitable for evaluating growth funds and accumulation plans of Equity and debt funds. but should be avoided for income funds and funds with Withdrawal plans. or if he needs to switch to another fund.

For example. Also. simple Total Return as calculated here is still inadequate as a performance measure. the expense ratio must be evaluated in the light of fund size. funds with small corpus size will have a higher expense ratio affecting investor returns than a large corpus fund. the fluctuations in the ratio across periods require an average over 3-5 years be used to judge a funds performance. 67 .This measure corrects the shortcoming of the NAV Change measure.equity or fixed income. It is not recommended for funds that concentrate primarily on capital appreciation. and differences of even 0. particularly debt funds. Formula: Given by ratio of Total Expense to Average Net Assets of the Fund Limitations: Though an important yardstick. If a fund’s income levels or returns are small.It is defined as its net investment income divided by its net assets for the period. because it ignores the fact that distributed dividends also get reinvested if received during the year. by taking account of the dividends distributed by the fund between the two NAV dates. (c) The Expense Ratio:This Ratio is an indicator of the funds efficiency and cost effectiveness.5% between two funds can affect the investors’ returns. Formula: For Total Return is [(Distribution + Change in NAV)/NAV at the beginning of the period]*100 Limitations:Although more accurate than NAV Change. Formula:. say a debt fund giving a gross return of 8%. The investor’s Total Return should take account of reinvestment of interim dividends. average account size and portfolio composition. and adding them to the NAV change to arrive at the total return. (d) The Income Ratio:This ratio is a useful measure for evaluating income-oriented funds. expense ratio becomes important.

(g) Cash Holdings:Mutual funds allocate their assets among equity shares. Small funds are easier to maneuver and can achieve their objectives in a focused manner with limited holdings.Limitations:The income ratio cannot be considered in isolation.(lesser of assets purchased or sold/ by the fund’s net assets) Limitations: This measure is meaningful only when evaluated against the backdrop of the fund’s investment objectives. They also gain through greater risk bearing and management capacity. (f) Fund Size:Fund size can affect performance. The percentage of a fund’s portfolio held in cash equivalents can be an important element in its successful performance. (e) Portfolio Turnover Rate:This ratio measures how many times the fund manager turns over his portfolio by buying or selling of securities in the market. because these not only indicate dissatisfaction on the part of investors. Large funds benefit from economies of scale with lower expense ratios and superior fund management skills. but also force the fund to 68 . it should be used only to supplement the analysis based on the expense ratio and total return. Cash also allows the fund a cushion against decline in the market prices of shares or bonds. consistent net redemptions. Formula: It is given by. A large cash holding allows the fund to strengthen its position in preferred securities without liquidating its other portfolios. debt securities and cash/bank deposits. and in terms of its ability to perform well on a consistent basis. A 100 percent turnover implies that the manager replaced his entire portfolio during the period in question. The fund must also guard against large.

Investors need to do their homework before making serious investment decisions.maintain large cash reserves lowering return on the portfolio. Availability of these data limits the use of this measure in practice. Therefore transaction costs have a significant bearing on the fund performance and its Total return. “Mutual Fund Insights”. (h) Transaction Costs:Transactions costs include all expenses related to trading such as the brokerage commissions paid. Useful information can be downloaded from such websites. For example. these transaction costs are difficult to quantify or document. For the investors. stamp duty on transfers. All securities have a bid price and an offer price. They should identify with their investment goals and evaluate a fund’s ability to meet those goals within the investment timeframe. There are many websites also dedicated to fund management industry in India. Mutual fund rankings and ratings and other evaluations of fund performance provide an important way for investors to compare their funds performance with other funds. a monthly publication of Value Research gives performance rankings of the schemes on the basis of total returns and risk measures for various categories of mutual funds. The fund sells securities at the bid price and buys them at the offer price. representing a cost to the fund investors. the most practical way to track the performance of mutual fund schemes is to consult publications that regularly supply performance numbers. Another important publication is ICICI bank’s Mutual Fund Review. However these are the ways by which a financial advisor can measure the performance of the funds. The offer price is usually higher than the bid price and the difference is the transaction cost. It becomes difficult for the fund to attain its objectives in such a situation. registrars’ fees and custodians’ fees. Limitation:While other costs are detailed in the fund prospectus or annual reports. 69 . Agencies like Cris-Risk (a subsidiary of Crisil) publish mutual funds ranking in the newspaper periodically.
