INTRODUCTION
Closed-End Fund
A closed-end fund, or closed-ended fund is a collective investment scheme with a limited number of shares.

New shares are rarely issued after the fund is launched; shares are not normally redeemable for cash or securities until the fund liquidates. Typically an investor can acquire shares in a closed-end fund by buying shares on a secondary market from a broker, market maker, or other investor as opposed to an open-end fund where all transactions eventually involve the fund company creating new shares on the fly (in exchange for either cash or securities) or redeeming shares (for cash or securities).

Mutual Fund
A mutual fund is a professionally managed type of collective investment scheme that pools money from many investors and invests it in stocks, bonds, short-term money market instruments, and/or other securities.[1] The mutual fund will have a fund manager that trades the pooled money on a regular basis. Mutual funds can invest in many kinds of securities. The most common are cash instruments, stock, and bonds, but there are hundreds of sub-categories. Stock funds, for instance, can invest primarily in the shares of a particular industry, such as technology or utilities. These are known as sector funds. Bond funds can vary according to risk (e.g., high-yield junk bonds or investment-grade corporate bonds), type of issuers (e.g., government agencies, corporations, or municipalities), or maturity of the bonds (short- or long-term).

KHADIM ALI SHAH BUKHARI & CO. LTD - KASB

As of December 31, 2006, BlackRock's pro forma assets under management totalled over $1.1 trillion across fixed income, liquidity, equity, alternative investment and real estate strategies Pakistan Premier Fund, which was previously known as KASB Premier Fund, was acquired from Khadim Ali Ali Shah Bukhari-closed end fund, with at least Rs 475 million fund at hand.

METHODOLOGY
The purpose of the study was the analysis of fund manager performance. The Fund selected for the study was PAKISTAN PREMIER FUND. The fund is listed in Karachi, Islamabad, and Lahore stock exchanges. The performance of the fund is calculate through retrieving its required data from the site, www.Businessrecorder.com. Three years information i.e. 36 months has been collected to analyze the performance of the fund within past 3 years. The data collected from the site includes • Closing stock prices ( specific date standardize for each month i.e.15 ) • Index (the values in relation with the specific date)

For analyzing the fund manager performance it is necessary to compute the risk (beta) for the FUND. Calculation of beta requires the information which was retrived by applying the formulas

STOCK RETURN
The stock return is being calculated from the Closing rates of the fund for 15th of each month in 3 years. The formula is being applied for calculating stock return e.g. C10-C9/C9

MARKET RETURN
Similarly market return is computed on the basis of the index value for the same dat,e 15th of each month, this shows the market return of the one day in a month through a formula E10-E9/E9

RISK FREE RATE
Risk free rate is being collcted from the site of State bank and the data provided.

EXCESS MARKET RETURN - X
It is the difference of the market return and Riskfree rate. Market return – Risk free rate

EXCESS STOCK RETURN - Y
It is the difference between stock return and risk free rate. Stock return- Risk Free rate

XY – the product of both excess returns is taken X^2– square of the excess market return is taken.

BETA CALCULATION
The calculation of beta is done in order to compute the ratios for the fund and analyze its performance. Beta (B) is used to measure the risk. I have used two methods to calculate the risk of the fund. The menthods are • B= N∑XY - (∑x) * (∑Y)/N * (∑x2)-(∑x)2 • B = (R s,m * Ss) / Sm

RATIO CALCULATION
I have applied 5 ratios to analyze the fund’s performance. The ratios are 1. TREYNOR RATIO : The Treynor ratio is a kind of rating standard. T = rp - rf /β

2. JENSEN ALPHA :

it is used to determine the excess return of a security or portfolio of securities over the security's theoretical expected return.

αj = Ri - ( Rf + βiM (RM - Rf)))

3. SHARPE

RATIO: it is a measure of the excess return (or Risk Premium) per unit of risk in an investment asset or a trading strategy

S = E (R - Rf)/ σ

4. COMPOUND ANNUAL GROWTH RATE:
CAGR = (ending value/beginning value) (1/# of years) – 1

5. SORTINO RATIO: measures the risk-adjusted return of an investment asset, portfolio or strategy
S = R - T / DR

DATA ANALYSIS
From the calculation and computations of the Pakistan premiere fun, it can be analyzed that the Fun is performing at low risk and less return because after the computation of Beta β it can be seen that that value of beta is less then zero, β<0, so the fund is having minimum risk as well as less return The ratios are calculated so that, the performance of the fund manager gain be seen. • • • • • Treynor ratio does not show any effect in the fund, because this ratio is used to compare two portfolios. Jensen’s Alpha is computed altogether for 3 year period time Sharpe ratio Compound Annual growth rate ratio shows that, the growth of the fund over the time, which is based on annual basis Sortino ratio

CONCLUSION
Due to economic Crisis in Pakistan, the companies are facing problems at high level. The closed end funds listed in KSE 100 index are also not performing well just because, the economic crisis has covered the world drastically. The company may have done better when the economic recession will set aside. The companies are facing losses. The positive point is the investment made in the company would comprise of less risks. But at the same time returns over the investment would also be low.
