Executive summary
The Indian mutual fund industry in recent years has exponential growth and yet it is still at a very nascent stage. We believe that the mutual fund industry has grown in terms of size or choices available, but is a long distance from being regarded as a mature one. To understand this one has to look at the global scenario. If one look at the global mutual fund industry, one has see that assets have grown by 185% between 2000 and 2009. In comparison, Indian assets outgrew at a staggering 446%, where as the US only grew by 158% and Europe by 242%. As our economy continues to grow at a spectacular rate there is a huge amount of wealth creating opportunities surfacing everywhere. Financial Planners have an immensely responsible role to play by identifying these opportunities and channeling them into wealth creating initiatives that would enable people to address their financial needs. To give an overview of a recent study conducted by Invest India, there are about 321.8 millions paid workers in India. Of this only 5.3 millions have an exposure to mutual funds. This is less than 2% of total work force. Even more interesting fact is that 77% of them reside in super metros and Tier I cities. Again, about 4 millions come in the Rs. 90,000-5 lakh income bracket. The penetration among the less than Rs. 90,000 and more than Rs 5 lack income bracket is very low. The need for the hour is to expand the market boundaries and expand scope in Tier II and Tier III cities. India is also one of the fastest growing markets for mutual funds, attracting a host of global players. Hence, investors will have an even wider range of products to choose from. The combination of the increase in number of fund houses along with new schemes and the increase in the number of people parking their saving in mutual funds has resulted in per cent during April-December 2009.

compared to 15000 in the US and 36000 in Europe. The gap is significant and has to be filled up with unique and better priced products. We have also . during which the likes of SBI. The total HNI (High Net Worth Individual) assets stood at about Rs 12 trillion and their assets are distributed over various assets classes.BOB and Canara Bank comes into existence The emergence phase (1993 – 2003).Pacific region in terms of percentage growth. Passing through the growth phase We have always read that fund industry has seen three phases – the UTI phase. commodity based funds. - - And now we are entering Phase V of the industry. 13476 billions for the corresponding period last year. when international players come in to India. In fact.This now stands at Rs 30314 billions as against Rs. . art funds and the like. real estate funds. Some have wound up their operations and a few of them are looking for re-entry. the public sector phase and the post – UTI phase. the Mutual fund proportion in this has increased. this is a win-win situation for Indian investors. when domestic players along with some global players have consolidated the MF industry. Yet we have less than 1000 schemes in India. India stands only second-best to Korea in the Asia. There has also been a rapid rise in the HNI segment. Statistics reveal that a higher portion of investors’ savings is now invested in market-linked avenues like mutual funds as compared to earlier times. Post UTI phase (2003 – 2009). Indian house holds have also increased their exposure to the capital market. We already have many experts expressing their concentration at the frequency of NFO launches. To top them MFs will have to come up with structured products. there have been four clear stages. Very interestingly. when not only are newer players readying to enter the market but are also looking at penetration and market expansion. there has been more than 2000% growth in the assets coming to MFs in the last 3 years. But if we study a bit more closely.UTI Phase (1964 – 1987) - Public sector phase (1987 – 1993). All in all.

These are all drivers for the fund industry. Their presence across India is expanding. The retail participation in equity schemes has also increased tremendously. He follows a contrarian’s approach. MUTUAL FUND MUTUAL FUND is a mechanism for pooling the resources by issuing units to the investors and investing funds in securities in accordance with objectives as disclosed document. which is likely to remain at this level for years to come. In this way. resulting in a change in asset management styles. Changing investor profile Today’s investor is quite young and very unlike the older generation. Our economy is booming. As our economy continuous to grow at a spectacular rate there is a huge amount of wealth creating opportunities surfacing everywhere. Distributors too are expanding their networks. The number of AMCs is increasing. The need of the investor populace has changed. Together. this is leading to the design of new and competitively-priced products. the trends clearly suggest that investors prefer NFOs to enter equities. from balanced funds to arbitrage funds.come up a long way from plain vanilla equity funds to hybrid funds. This in itself is both an opportunity and a challenge. He buys when the market flips and books profit when it rallies. Besides. implying greater emphasis on higher quality of intermediation. in offer . from sectoral funds to quant strategies. the regulator has taken up measures to safeguard investor interests. these greet investor warmly. we have now a sustained GDP growth of 8%. Financial Planners have an immensely responsible role to play by identifying these opportunities and channeling them into wealth creating initiatives that would enable people to adequately address their financial needs. Although many complain that the industry is still brokerage driven.

Investments in securities are spread across a wide cross-section of industries and sectors and thus the risk is reduced. . A mutual fund is required to be registered with Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) which regulates securities markets before it can collect funds from the public. Diversification reduces the risk because all stocks may not move in the same direction in the same proportion at the same time. The mutual funds normally come out with a number of schemes with different investment objectives which are launched from time to time. Mutual fund issues units to the investors in accordance with quantum of money invested by them. The profits or losses are shared by the investors in proportion to their investments. Investors of mutual funds are known as unit holders.


All mutual funds whether promoted by public sector or private sector entities including those promoted by foreign entities are governed by the same set of Regulations. There is no distinction in regulatory requirements for these mutual funds and all are subject to monitoring and inspections by SEBI. In early 1990s. The primary objective at that time was to attract the small investors and it was made possible through the collective efforts of the Government of India and the Reserve Bank of India. SEBI notified regulations for the mutual funds in 1993. The history of mutual fund industry in India can be better understood divided into following phases: . The Evolution The formation of Unit Trust of India marked the evolution of the Indian mutual fund industry in the year 1963. The regulations were fully revised in 1996 and have been amended thereafter from time to time. mutual funds sponsored by private sector entities were allowed to enter the capital market. SEBI formulates policies and regulates the mutual funds to protect the interest of the investors. In the year 1992. Thereafter. SEBI has also issued guidelines to the mutual funds from time to time to protect the interests of investors. Government allowed public sector banks and institutions to set up mutual funds. The objectives of SEBI are – to protect the interest of investors in securities and to promote the development of and to regulate the securities market.
