Definition:Mutual funds is nothing, the participation of the investor who are not enable
to invest their money in the share market and hence they participate in the
mutual funds
When an investor buy the unit of the Mutual funds what happen the
manager of the company invest in the shares.
The process is that the manager of the company goes to the people and
sells the units of the Mutual funds and hence collects the money and then
invests the money in the shares.
What happen which dont have the power to invest in the shares they also
participates in the shares because when they invest in the Mutual funds
then automatically they invest in the shares because the fund manager

Role of a Fund Manager:


Fund managers are responsible for implementing a consistent investment
strategy that reflects the goals and objectives of the fund. Normally, fund
managers monitor market and economic trends and analyze securities in
order to make informed investment decisions.
How are mutual funds regulated?
All Asset Management Companies (AMCs) are regulated by SEBI and/or the
RBI (in case the AMC is promoted by a bank). In addition, every mutual fund
has a board of directors that represents the unit holders interests in the
mutual fund.
What is an Asset Management Company (AMC)?
The company that manages a mutual fund is called an AMC. For all practical
purposes, it is an organized form of a money portfolio manager. An AMC
may have several mutual fund schemes with similar or varied investment
objectives. The AMC hires a professional money manager, who buys and
sells securities in line with the fund's stated objective.
Are investments in mutual fund units risk-free or safe?
This depends on the underlying instrument that a mutual fund invests in,
based on its investment objectives. Mutual funds that invest in stock
market-related instruments cannot be termed risk-free or safe as
investment in shares are inherently risky by nature, whereas funds that
invest in fixed-income instruments are relatively safe and those that invest
only in government securities are the safest.
How is NAV calculated?
The value of all the securities in mutual funds portfolio is calculated daily.
From this, all expenses are deducted and the resultant value divided by the
number of units in the fund is the funds NAV or its Net Asset Value.

Introduction:-

Mutual funds are financial intermediaries in the investment business. They


collect funds from public and invest on the behalf of the investors as pass
through entity with losses and gain with accruing to the investors only.
Mutual funds sell their shares to their investors; invests the proceeds in a
wide choice of securities in the financial market. Owner of shares receive
prorate shares of the earning from these assets, minus management and
other fees assessed by the fund.
Mutual funds are defined by the different authors in different words
meaning on the same thing I. e. it is non banking and non depository
financial intermediary which act as an important vehicle for bringing wealth
holders and deficit units together indirectly. Mutual funds are pooling funds
together and then investing that funds in different securities thus reduce
risk by diversification
Origin of Mutual funds :
The origin of the modern mutual funds industry may be traced to
Robert Fleming first investment trust set up in the 1870s when he promised
to manage the finance of the moneyed classes of Scotland. Flemings trust
called foreign and colonial investment Trust was formed as Limited
company, to invest in the selection of 18 overseas Government stocks, as
average yields of 8 Percent. The moneyed people latched on to the trust
idea in a period of falling interest rates.
In India, excepting UTI all other mutual funds are organized and set up
under Indian trust act 1882. And UTI is set up under special act, the UTI act,
amended by the parliament in1963.
We can divide the four phases
Phase 1(1964-1986)

~4~

The Unit trust of India (UTI) has the distinction of laying the foundation
of mutual funds industry in India. The trust was establish under UTI act,
1963, a special act of parliament and became operational in July 1964. It
started with the basic objective of mobilizing the savings through the sale of
units and investing them in corporate securities, for maximizing yield and
capital appreciation.
The institution maintained its monopoly till 1987, with its different
scheme like monthly income, capital gains scheme equity linked scheme
plan etc. Its most popular scheme has been the unit scheme 1964, which is
the first open ended scheme. Over the years, UTI has emerged as a large
investment institution; with a well spread out network, it has successfully
managed its domestic and offshore mutual funds. During this phase, UTI
was the only fund company in India, and its funds family included five
income oriented open-ended schemes, which were sold largely through its
agent network built up over years.
Phase 2 (1987-1992)
When the mutual funds become free for Public sector
The second phase, witness the entry of funds companies sponsored by
the state owned bank and financial institution. In 1987, SBI mutual funds
Canara bank mutual funds were set up as trust under the Indian trust Act
1882, by the respective sponsors, the state bank of India andCanara bank.
By the 1990, the two state sector insurance giant, LIC and GIC and state
owned bank namely Indian India issued another set of guidelines in June
1990, which emphasized that arms lengths relationship be maintained
between the sponsor and MAC.
Phase 3 (1992-..)
The phase for open field policy
The year 1993 marked a turning point in the history of mutual funds
in India. As a part of the economic liberalization and reform process, the
Government launched a series of measures for financial sectors including
setting up of SEBI issued the mutual funds regulation in January 1993. Also
the mutual funds industry opened up to private domestic and international

~5~

players. Kothari groups of companies, in joint venture with pioneer of US


Funds Company, set up first private mutual funds, the Kothari Pioneer
mutual funds, in 1993. This was soon fallowed from Morgan Stanley.
Subsequently, several mutual fund trusts set up by the domestic and foreign
companies either in joint venture as independent entities.

The contribution of mutual funds toward the Economy


Every entity present in the economy has its own role in the economy. For
performing that role in the Economy it charges to somebody and gives some
benefits to him. If these benefits provided by that by that entity are more
than the cost, then that entity exist in the economy and we can say that this
entity is performing well. The investment needed for different household not
conform to ant standard pattern. First they determine clearly their
investment objectives, including the combination of safety, income capital
growth and price level protection they are seeking.
Second, they must decide they must of investment to be used and the
proportions of each to be acquired. Third, they must select specific
investment of the desire type, making sure that quality stability and other
features are obtained as needed. Finally, they should study the long run
values of suitable investment and time their purchase and sales with due
regard for the price behavior of characteristically unstable investment
markets. The proper handling of the fourfold task is an assignment of no
mean proportions.
In choosing specific investment, investors will need definite ideas
regarding a number of features of investments. The following are some
factors which investor consider while designing his investment policy. They
are not offered in any order denoting importance, the emphasis each should
receive varies with the situation of each investor.
1. Safety (Risk reduction) :
Household investors are in financial surplus, and are therefore the net
primary lenders to the financial markets, and the industrial commercial and
government sectors in financial deficit and are therefore net borrowers from

~6~

the financial markets. But always there is a risk involved of a borrower being
unable to pay the interest to repay the principal when it is due. This risk is
known as default risk or credit risk.
Also there is a certainty attached to the income stream derived from
investment project, since the value of equity investment will rise if the
underlying capital stock is used productively and will decline or even vanish
if it used unproductively. This risk is called equity risk. Investors therefore
want safety against this risk in the investments, even though the returns on
the investment may be low.

2. Capital appreciation:
The ultimate objective of an individual in household sector, say,
is to maximize the expected welfare of utility of this lifetime
consumption stream. For that sometime he looks for larger return than
a safe investment. These types of investors are more interested in
priced gain rather than income.
Therefore they invest in speculative assets like equity shares,
which have radical price variation. In this type of investments value of
principal is of prime concern
3. Regular income (Stability of income)
The factor is important in arranging an investment portfolio for
an individual who depend closely on income. The risk related to the
assets giving regular income has less risk as com [pared to the
investment, which provide capital growth.
4. Liquidity
Every investor require minimum, quick recourse fund available
to meet emergencies. Furthermore, a sound portfolio will look to the
sure and quick availability of additional fund which may be needed for
business opportunities, or estate taxes. Therefore liquidity is one of
the important factor considers while investing.

~7~

5. Freedom from care about investment


The existence of important risk in every class of investment
makes it impossible to buy good thing and forget them. T/Constant
skilled supervision is necessary to obtain good returns. Those who
wish to minimize the attention required by their investment should
therefore make quality their watch word.
6. Proper investments
The proper handling of investment task is very difficult. It
demands technical knowledge, diligence, and some experience, but it
is the essence of successful investment management for an
individual. In country like India, where the literacy level is very low the
investors from, household sector lakes in knowledge or in them
required for successful investment in capital market

Classification of mutual funds:Mutual funds can be classified in to fallowing three based categories.
1. Portfolio classification of mutual funds.
2. Functional classification of mutual funds.
3. Geographical classification of mutual funds.
1. Portfolio classification of mutual funds
I)

Growth funds:These funds invest mostly equity shares and assume the risk
associated with the equity investment. The main objective of the
growth funds is to appreciate the capital.

II)

Income funds:These funds mostly invest in bonds, like debt instruments, like
debentures. Their basis is towards providing safety of investment and
regular income.

III)

Balance funds:-

~8~

They are divide their investment between equity shares and


bonds in order to meets the objective of safety, capital appreciation
and regularity of income.
IV)

Tax exempt funds:-

They invest their funds in such investments, which receive


benefits and enjoy exclusive tax free treatment.

V)

Index funds:These funds invest only in those shares, which are included in
the market indices and in exactly in the same proportion, so that the
value of such index varies with the market index.

VI)

VII)

Hedge funds:Mutual funds, which employ their funds by speculative trading, i.e.
by buying shares whose prices are likely to rise and selling shares
whose prices are likely to fall, are called hedge funds.
Money market funds:-

Specialize in investing in short-term money market instrument like


certificate of deposits the emphasis on liquidity with low rate of return.
VIII) Special funds:These funds invest only in specialized channels like a specific
country (India funds, Japan funds, and Korea funds) a specific category of
companies, real stat.
1. Functional classification of mutual funds:I)

Open ended Scheme:-

Mutual funds may have open ended scheme under which an


investor is free to join the fund or withdrew from their funds at any time
after an initial lock in period. Such funds announce sale and repurchase
prices from time to time. UTIs US 64 scheme is an example of such fund.
In open ended mutual funds, the holder can resell the shares in the fund

~9~

to the issuing mutual fund company and receive in turn the net asset
value (NAV) of the shares. The open ended fund can buy or sell their own
shares.
II)

Closed ended Funds:-

Such mutual funds do not issue shares or unit or repurchase or


redeem on a periodic basis. Units of such schemes can redeem only on
termination or through dealing in share market. In close ended scheme
the period of the scheme specified. Close ended scheme has definite
target amount for the funds and cannot sell more after initial offering.
2. Geographical classification of mutual funds:3. Domestic funds:Domestic funds are the savings schemes. Which are opened for
mobilizing saving of investors in household sector in the country.
They can invest in the securities in the financial markets within
the country.
4. Offshore funds:Such mutual funds can invest in securities of foreign companies and
such investment requires RBI permission.
Mutual funds Investment VS Individual investment

5. Amount of funds available:Fund manager have a large amount of funds, which provide them
economies of scale by which they can absorb any losses in the stock market
and can continue investing in the stock market.
On the other hand, individual investors dont have large amount of
funds for investments. Therefore if the suffer any losses in the market, it
become very difficult for him to regain his position. Thus mutual funds
provide stability to the stock market.

~ 10 ~

6. Portfolio diversification:Also mutual funds have portfolio diversification, of securities because


of large amount of funds available with them, which helps in reduction in
risk. But the portfolio diversification of securities is not possible for an
individual investor. Therefore mutual funds help the investor in reducing the
risk.
Information and data available:AMCs have large amount of funds available with them, so can afford
information and data required for investments through equity research
team. Although individual investor can access to the information he cant
afford information
Professional management:Fund manager have professionals who have various analytical
techniques available with them for analyzing data of various companies. But
many investors dont have basic knowledge about investment thus making
them incapableof making informed decision. Thus fund managers help the
individual investors in proper investment in the financial market by
analyzing the data and information available.

Continuous monitoring of investments:As the AMCs have the information and data with them and also they
have various analytical techniques available with the, they can continuously
monitor the progress of the companies in which they have invested their
funds. On the other hands, investors at time dont have sufficient knowledge
and time to monitor the performance of companies in which they have
invested. Fund management thus helps the investors in talking the worry
out of their investments.
The present state of the mutual funds their performance and
profitability has been a cause of concern. Concern have been expressed in
various quarters, including investors association about the legality and

~ 11 ~

ethics of certain practice fallowed by mutual funds and the fund


management capabilities of the fund managers.
Questions have been raised about the accountability and
responsibility of the asset management companies towards their investors,
and the role of trustee in supervising the asset management companies in
fulfilling their obligations towards the investors.
Therefore we must consider the issue and try to work on them to
ensure that mutual funds develop in to vibrant and efficient investment
vehicles, providing the benefits of security markets to millions of investors.

LIC Introduction
LIC Mutual Fund was set up by Life Insurance Corporation of India on 19th
June 1989 with a corpus of Rs. 2 crores. LIC Mutual Funds are managed by
LIC Mutal Fund Asset Management Company Ltd which was formed on 20th
April 1994 in compliance with the Securities and Exchange Board of India
(Mutual Funds) Regulations, 1993.

Life Insurance in its modern form came to India from England in the year
1818. Oriental Life Insurance Company started by Europeans in Calcutta
was the first life insurance company on Indian Soil. In the year 1912, the
Life Insurance Companies Act, and the Provident Fund Act were passed. The
Life Insurance Companies Act, 1912 made it necessary that the premium
rate tables and periodical valuations of companies should be certified by an

~ 13 ~

actuary. But the Act discriminated between foreign and Indian companies
on many accounts, putting the Indian companies at a disadvantage.
19th of January, 1956, that life insurance in India was nationalized. The
Parliament of India passed the Life Insurance Corporation Act on the 19th of
June 1956, and the Life Insurance Corporation of India was created on 1st
September, 1956, with the objective of spreading life insurance much more
widely and in particular to the rural areas with a view to reach all insurable
persons in the country, providing them adequate financial cover at a
reasonable cost.
Today LIC functions with 2048 fully computerized branch offices, 100
divisional offices, 7 zonal offices and the Corporate office. LICs Wide Area
Network covers 100 divisional offices and connects all the branches through
a Metro Area Network. LIC has tied up with some Banks and Service
providers to offer on-line premium collection facility in selected cities. LICs
ECS and ATM premium payment facility is an addition to customer
convenience. Apart from on-line Kiosks and IVRS, Info Centres have been
commissioned at Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad,
Kolkata, New Delhi, Pune and many other cities. With a vision of providing
easy access to its policyholders, LIC has launched its SATELLITE SAMPARK
offices.

Research
Study
~ 15 ~

Objective of study:To compare the returns given by two mutual funds mentioned above VS with
the index and also to compare the relative returns given by two mutual
funds.
To see if they are able to achieve the objective with regard to managing the
portfolio as they have spelt out in their offer documents.

~ 16 ~

To see if there is acquits liquidity offered by the mutual funds.


To see if they are transparent in disclosing their portfolioon a regular basis
and dealing with public.

Hypothesis for the project are as follows:-

Portfoliomanaged by professional bodies like mutual funds five better


returns in comparison to return given by index.

~ 17 ~

More transparent the portfolio, more are the returns and public
confidence in term of mobilization of funds.
Schemes of LIC mutual fund that have been taken for the comparison
withPru. ICICI mutual fund have given better returns in comparison to
both LIC Mutual funds and BSE-sensex.

Research methodology:The research methodology that I followed during preparation of


project consisted of primary collection of data from various internet sites like
mutualfundindia.com bseindia.com. I also took data from the site of mutual
funds like pruicici.com. the data given in the fact sheets of both the mutual
fund also proved to be great help.
The secondary source of data consist question being asked to market
analysts as to the appropriate method for the performance evaluation of
mutual funds. Majority of them suggested the tactual comparison of returns
is the correct evaluation method of evaluating the mutual funds. I prepared
a questionnaire to ask various people as to the mutual funds they like with
regard to their transparency, portfolio disclosure and service standards.
Majority of them showed a preference towards investing mutual funds of
private sector especially pro ICICI and LIC.

The Mutual funds Boom:-

~ 19 ~

The history of mutual funds begins in 1964 that was the year of
the Unit Trust of India Launched in 1964. It was only 1987 that the banks
and insurance companies got in to the act, with state bank of India taking
the initiative 40% of the funds promoted by the banks and insurance
companies were launched in the go-go year in the 1987 and 1993. The first
private fund. Kothari Pioneer (Now ITI pioneer) was launched in to 1993.
More fund were joined the party and the total asset under management
grew to Rs. 61.301crore in 1994. But as the Sensex dropped, investor
preference shifted to fix income instruments in 1996.here most new
entrants found it difficult to complete with UTI. Which has assured return
debt.Products. The period 1996-98 was the worst in the history of mutual
funds. But several asset management companies used the opportunity of
restructure their portfolio and were ready for the 1999 boom in equities. In
1999- 2000, the value of asset under management swelled to Rs. 167946
Crore. Then the great equity melt down happened. Today, there are 34
mutual fund houses managing 614 scheme and Rs 94571 crorein assets.
Not all of them will survive, but performance and transparency will tell in the
long run.

Performance
Evaluation of
Mutual funds

~ 47 ~

Performance evaluation tools of Mutual funds

The tool according to me, which is relevant in the Indian scenario to


evaluate the performance of the mutual funds is Comparison of returns
Comparison of Returns:We all are always interested in discovering of the performance of the mutual
funds, whether the management of the mutual funds is performing well, that
is, has management done better through his selective buying and selling of
securities that would have been achieved through merely buying the
market picking up a large no of securities randomly and holding them
throughout the period?
One of the most popular of measuring management performance is by
comparing the yield of managed portfolio with the market or with the
random portfolio. The portfolio yields formula parallels the holding period
yield,
Formula for stocks that is presented as
{(NAVT + D t)/NAVt-1}-1
Where,
NAV t
= Per share net asset value at the end of the year t.
Dt
= the total of all distribution both income and capital
Gain per share during the year.
NAV = Per share net asset value at the end of previous year.

~ 48 ~

It is clear that by concede ration of returns or yields alone, mutual


funds on the average have well between the Sensex. In spite of negative
returns of the sensex, the returns for the mutual funds are positive one.
First if the managed portfolio did better than the unmanaged portfolio, the
investor in the mutual funds should not rejoice too soon. He has to pay the
management fee as well as suffer a reduction in equity equal to the loading
charges (in the case of a load fund). So, he must incurred by purchasing a
mutual funds rather than purchasing a diversified portfolio on his own and
paying the commission.
Second, the investor must determine the relative riskiness of the portfolio
under analysis. The managed portfolio could have achieved higher returns
than the markets or an unmanaged portfolio by taking on considerably more
risk investments.
It is not surprising under such circumstances for higher return to
occur, for higher returns should go along with the higher risks.
Since the differential returns earned by a manager may be due to
difference in the exposure to risk forms that of the index or typical manager,
there would be merit in the attempting to adjust the return for any
difference in risk exposure.

As it can be seen from the above that all funds have given high return
in the last year. As the index goes to healthy the returns also rise.
The first objective is to compare the return given by two mutual funds
in comparison with the index and also to compare the relative returns given
by two mutual funds.

All the Funds selected for the analysis well performed.


ICICI Flexible income is the best among all the funds.
Hence this hypothesis accepted.

Hypothesis Testing- 2
To prove the second hypothesis that more transparent the portfolio, more are the
returns and public confidence in terms of mobilization of funds, I took structured
interview of people (Sample size 50) who invest regularly in mutual funds.
(Is given in ,Annexure A)

I found that majority of them used to look up to UTI of meeting their


investment needs in mutual funds. In last three years, simce the debacle suffered

~ 54 ~

by UTI in 1998 particularly in its largest and most popular scheme UTI-64 people
have lost the faith in the UTI . Now after the latest episode Involving UTI where lack
of transparency regarding its disclosure of portfolio. UTI has lost trust of people so
much that many people have taken a view to never invest in any scheme in UTI.
It is my surprise many people are aware of private mutual funds Specially
ICICI Mutual funds and LIC Mutual funds. People who have invested in the ICICI
and LIC they are very happy according to their transparency and performance.
Both these funds give very high quality of services with regard to sending
transaction statement, repurchase facility on any working day. Both these funds are
very transparent with regard to disclosure of their portfolios, sending newsletter to
its holders on quarterly basis. Information about NAVs are available 24 hours on
partial usual funs companies. It can be said that people feel confident while invest
both these mutual funds.

As to the performance of both LIC and ICICI both performed very well in the last
one year. But if you will see in the last three year and five years the performance
was up and down but at the average it was good.
Hence this hypothesis is accepted.

Hypothesis Testing-3

To prove this hypothesis three schemes of each LIC and ICICI Mutual funds
were taken.
All schemes of ICICI Have performed well by a wide margin over a three year
periods however in the last one year, schemes of ICICI mutual funds performed
very well. As the sensex grow. As mutual funds are for long term investment, it can
be said that scheme of LIC has underperformed.

~ 56 ~

On the other hand in comparison of schemes of LIC and ICICI Prudential, ICICI
has performed well than the LIC Mutual funds. You can see that the Mutual funds of
the ICICI is well performer than the LIC Mutual funds in the 1 st year, in 3rd Year, in 5th
Year also.
Hence this hypothesis is accepted

~ 57 ~

Future scope
And
Limitation

Future scope and limitations


Future Scope:This project is specifying to equity scheme of Pru. ICICI fund and LIC MF
which are similar in nature. Further it can be done to similar scheme of other
mutual funds.
The tool, which I have adapted to evaluate the performance of mutual funds,
the comparison of actual returns method, but other theoretical methods, can be
adapt to evaluate the returns.

~ 58 ~

Limitations:The most important limitation that is very apparent is that I has adapted
only comparison of Return method for evaluating the performance of mutual funds,
while there are theoretical methods for evaluating the performance for mutual
funds. In our country, people always look for actual returns, which they are actually
going to get.
Other limitation is that the project is restricted to only five schemes of both
the mutual funds where it can be extended to other schemes of both these mutual
funds and also extended to other mutual funds.

Conclusion
And
Recommendation
~ 59 ~

Conclusion and recommendations:After a study that I have made, I come to conclusion that all the diversified
funds that I have selected for study have giving high returns in last one year and in
some cases to to the that they were normally performed as the sensex was
performing, some time what happen that the NAV s went down of the face value
because of the sensex as we can say recession was the main cause due to which
2006 to 2008 themutual funds of both companies were restricted to grow or they
were underperforming.

~ 60 ~

The mutual funds of both the companies gave a highest return from the
periods of the Mar. 2000 till the 2006, in between this period the return was very
good of both companies and from the 2006 to 2008 both the companies were
underperforming, and from the starting of the 2009 the return and NAV,s of both
the companies were classical.

It can be seen that all these funds have performed very well but the
comparison of LIC with ICICI both are very different in the status, some
funds of the ICICI is equal to the LIC Funds and mostly they have very high
NAVs than the LIC Mutual funds.
But both companies are performing well according to their Funds.
