Introduction to Mutual Funds:

A Mutual Fund is a trust that pools the savings of a number of investors who share a
common financial goal. The money thus collected is then invested in capital market
instruments such as shares, debentures and other securities. The income earned through
these investments and the capital appreciations realized are shared by its unit holders in
proportion to the number of units owned by them. Thus a Mutual Fund is the most
suitable investment for the common man as it offers an opportunity to invest in a
diversified, professionally managed basket of securities at a relatively low cost.

The flow chart below describes broadly the working of a Mutual Fund.
A Mutual Fund is a body corporate registered with the Securities and Exchange Board
of India (SEBI) that pools up the money from individual/corporate investors and invests
the same on behalf of the investors/unit holders, in Equity shares, Government
securities, Bonds, Call Money Markets etc, and distributes the profits. In the other
words, a Mutual Fund allows investors to indirectly take a position in a basket of assets.

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 in offer
document. Investments in securities are spread among a wide cross-section of industries
and sectors thus the risk is reduced. Diversification reduces the risk because all stocks
may not move in the same direction in the same proportion at same time. Investors of
mutual funds are known as unit holders.

The investors in proportion to their investments share the profits or losses.

The mutual funds normally come out with a number of schemes with different
investment objectives which are launched from time to time. A Mutual Fund is required
to be registered with Securities Exchange Board of India (SEBI) which regulates
securities markets before it can collect funds from the public.

There are many entities involved and the diagram below illustrates the organizational
set up of a Mutual Fund:

Mutual Funds diversify their risk by holding a portfolio of instead of only one asset.
This is because by holding all your money in just one asset, the entire fortunes of your
portfolio depend on this one asset. By creating a portfolio of a variety of assets, this risk
is substantially reduced.

Mutual Fund investments are not totally risk free. In fact, investing in Mutual Funds
contains the same risk as investing in the markets, the only difference being that due to
professional management of funds the controllable risks are substantially reduced. A
very important risk involved in Mutual Fund investments is the market risk. However,
the company specific risks are largely eliminated due to professional fund management.


• A Mutual Fund actually belongs to the investors who have pooled their

Funds. The ownership of the mutual fund is in the hands of the Investors.

• A Mutual Fund is managed by investment professional and other

Service providers, who earns a fee for their services, from the funds.

• The pool of Funds is invested in a portfolio of marketable investments.

• The value of the portfolio is updated every day.

• The investor’s share in the fund is denominated by “units”. The value

of the units changes with change in the portfolio value, every day. The

value of one unit of investment is called net asset value (NAV).

• The investment portfolio of the mutual fund is created according to The stated

Investment objectives of the Fund.


• To Provide an opportunity for lower income groups to acquire without

Much difficulty, property in the form of shares.
• To Cater mainly of the need of individual investors, whose means are small?
• To Manage investors portfolio that provides regular income, growth,
Safety, liquidity, tax advantage, professional management and diversification.


• Reduced Risk.
• Diversified investment.
• Botheration free investment.
• Revolving type of investment (Reinvestment).
• Selection and timings of investment.
• Wide investment opportunities.
• Investments care.
• Tax benefits.



An investor normally prioritizes his investment needs before undertaking an

investment. So different goals will be allocated to different proportions of the total
disposable amount. Investments for specific goals normally find their way into the debt
market as risk reduction is of prime importance, this is the area for the risk-averse
investors and here, Mutual Funds are generally the best option. One can avail of the
benefits of better returns with added benefits of anytime liquidity by investing in open-
ended debt funds at lower risk, this risk of default by any company that one has chosen
to invest in, can be minimized by investing in Mutual Funds as the fund managers
analyze the companies financials more minutely than an individual can do as they have
the expertise to do so.

Moving up the risk spectrum, there are people who would like to take some risk and
invest in equity funds/capital market. However, since their appetite for risk is also
limited, they would rather have some exposure to debt as well. For these investors,
balanced funds provide an easy route of investment, armed with expertise of investment
techniques, they can invest in equity as well as good quality debt thereby reducing risks
and providing the investor with better returns than he could otherwise manage. Since they
can reshuffle their portfolio as per market conditions, they are likely to generate moderate
returns even in pessimistic market conditions.
Next comes the risk takers, risk takers by their nature, would not be averse to
investing in high-risk avenues. Capital markets find their fancy more often than not,
because they have historically generated better returns than any other avenue, provided,
the money was judiciously invested. Though the risk associated is generally on the higher
side of the spectrum, the return-potential compensates for the risk attached.


The project’s idea is to project Mutual Fund as a better avenue for investment on a
long-term or short-term basis. Mutual Fund is a productive package for a lay-investor
with limited finances, this project creates an awareness that the Mutual Fund is a
worthy investment practice. Mutual Fund is a globally proven instrument. Mutual
Funds are ”Unit Trust” as it is called in some parts of the world has a long and
successful history, of late Mutual Funds have become a hot favorite of millions of
people all over the world.

The driving force of Mutual Funds is the ‘safety of the principal’ guaranteed,
plus the added advantage of capital appreciation together with the income earned in the
form of interest or dividend. The various schemes of Mutual Funds provide the investor
with a wide range of investment options according to his risk bearing capacities and
interest besides; they also give handy return to the investor. Mutual Funds offers an
investor to invest even a small amount of money, each Mutual Fund has a defined
investment objective and strategy. Mutual Funds schemes are managed by respective
asset managed companies sponsored by financial institutions, banks, private companies
or international firms. A Mutual Fund is the ideal investment vehicle for today’s
complex and modern financial scenario.

The study is basically made to analyze the various open-ended equity

schemes of different Asset Management Companies to highlight the diversity of
investment that Mutual Fund offer. Thus, through the study one would understand how
a common man could fruitfully convert a pittance into great penny by wisely investing
into the right scheme according to his risk taking abilities.



The holders of the shares in the Fund can resell them to the issuing Mutual Fund
Company at the time. They receive in turn the net assets value (NAV) of the shares at
the time of re-sale. Such Mutual Fund Companies place their funds in the secondary
securities market. They do not participate in new issue market as do pension funds or
life insurance companies. Thus they influence market price of corporate securities.
Open-end investment companies can sell an unlimited number of Shares and thus keep
going larger. The open-end Mutual Fund Company Buys or sells their shares. These
Companies sell new shares NAV plus a Loading or management fees and redeem
shares at NAV.In other words, the target amount and the period both are indefinite in
such funds


A closed–end Fund is open for sale to investors for a specific period, after
which further sales are closed. Any further transaction for buying the units or
repurchasing them, Happen in the secondary markets, where closed end Funds are
listed. Therefore new investors buy from the existing investors, and existing investors
can liquidate their units by selling them to other willing buyers. In a closed end Funds,
thus the pool of Funds can technically be kept constant. The asset management
company (AMC) however, can buy out the units from the investors, in the secondary
markets, thus reducing the amount of funds held by outside investors. The price at
which units can be sold or redeemed Depends on the market prices, which are
fundamentally linked to the NAV. Investors in closed end Funds receive either
certificates or Depository receipts, for their holdings in a closed end mutual Fund.


In India Mutual Fund usually formed as trusts, three parties are generally involved viz.

• Settler of the trust or the sponsoring organization.

• The trust formed under the Indian trust act, 1982 or the trust company
registered under the Indian companies act, 1956
• Fund managers or The merchant-banking unit
• Custodians.


Mutual fund trust is created by the sponsors under the Indian trust act, 1982
Which is the main body in the creation of Mutual Fund trust
The main functions of Mutual Fund trust are as follows:

♦ Planning and formulating Mutual Funds schemes.

♦ Seeking SEBI’s approval and authorization to these schemes.
♦ Marketing the schemes for public subscription.
♦ Seeking RBI approval in case NRI’s subscription to Mutual Fund is Invited
♦ Attending to trusteeship function. This function as per guidelines can be
assigned to separately established trust companies too. Trustees are required to
submit a consolidated report six monthly to SEBI to ensure that the guidelines
are fully being complied with trusted are also required to submit an annual
report to the investors in the fund.


AMC has to discharge mainly three functions as under:

I.Taking investment decisions and making investments of the funds through

market dealer/brokers in the secondary market securities or directly in the
primary capital market or money market instruments
II. Realize fund position by taking account of all receivables and realizations,
moving corporate actions involving declaration of dividends,etc to compensate
investors for their investments in units; and
III.Maintaining proper accounting and information for pricing the units and
arriving at net asset value (NAV), the information about the listed schemes and
the transactions of units in the secondary market. AMC has to feed back the
trustees about its fund management operations and has to maintain a perfect
information system.


Mutual funds run by the subsidiaries of the nationalized banks had

their respective sponsor banks as custodians like canara bank, SBI, PNB, etc.
Foreign banks with higher degree of automation in handling the securities have
assumed the role of custodians for mutual funds. With the establishment of stock
Holding Corporation of India the work of custodian for mutual funds is now being
handled by it for various mutual funds. Besides, industrial investment trust
company acts as sub-custodian for stock Holding Corporation of India for
domestic schemes of UTI, BOI MF, LIC MF, etc

Fee structure:-

Custodian charges range between 0.15% to 0.20% on the net value of

the customer’s holding for custodian services space is one important factor which
has fixed cost element.


♦ Receipt and delivery of securities

♦ Holding of securities.
♦ Collecting income
♦ Holding and processing cost
♦ Corporate actions etc


♦ Safe custody
♦ Trade settlement
♦ Corporate action
♦ Transfer agents


An investor in mutual fund earns return from two sources:
♦ Income from dividend paid by the mutual fund.
♦ Capital gains arising out of selling the units at a price higher than the
acquisition price

Formation and regulations:

1. Mutual funds are to be established in the form of trusts under the Indian trusts
act and are to be operated by separate asset management companies (AMC s)
2. AMC’s shall have a minimum Net worth of Rs. 5 crores;
3. AMC’s and Trustees of Mutual Funds are to be two separate legal entities and
that an AMC or its affiliate cannot act as a manager in any other fund;
4. Mutual funds dealing exclusively with money market instruments are to be
regulated by the Reserve Bank Of India
5. Mutual fund dealing primarily in the capital market and also partly money
market instruments are to be regulated by the Securities Exchange Board Of
India (SEBI)
6. All schemes floated by Mutual funds are to be registered with SEBI


1. Mutual funds are allowed to start and operate both closed-end and open-end
2. Each closed-end schemes must have a Minimum corpus (pooling up) of Rs 20
3. Each open-end scheme must have a Minimum corpus of Rs 50 crore
4. In the case of a Closed –End scheme if the Minimum amount of Rs 20 crore
or 60% of the target amount, which ever is higher is not raised then the entire
subscription has to be refunded to the investors;
5. In the case of an Open-Ended schemes, if the Minimum amount of Rs 50 crore
or 60 percent of the targeted amount, which ever is higher, is no raised then
the entire subscription has to be refunded to the investors.

Investment norms:-

1. No mutual fund, under all its schemes can own more than five percent of any
company’s paid up capital carrying voting rights;
2. No mutual fund, under all its schemes taken together can invest more than 10
percent of its funds in shares or debentures or other instruments of any single
3. No mutual fund, under all its schemes taken together can invest more than 15
percent of its fund in the shares and debentures of any specific industry, except
those schemes which are specifically floated for investment in one or more
specified industries in respect to which a declaration has been made in the offer
4. No individual scheme of mutual funds can invest more than five percent of its
corpus in any one company’s share;
5. Mutual funds can invest only in transferable securities either in the money or in
the capital market. Privately placed debentures, securitized debt, and other
unquoted debt, and other unquoted debt instruments holding cannot exceed 10
percent in the case of growth funds and 40 percent in the case of income funds.


Mutual funds are required to distribute at least 90 percent of their profits annually in
any given year. Besides these, there are guidelines governing the operations of mutual
funds in dealing with shares and also seeking to ensure greater investor protection
through detailed disclosure and reporting by the mutual funds. SEBI has also been
granted with powers to over see the constitution as well as the operations of mutual
funds, including a common advertising code. Besides, SEBI can impose penalties on
Mutual funds after due investigation for their failure to comply with the guidelines.


Equity Diversified Schemes

These schemes mainly invest in equity. They seek to achieve long-term capital

appreciation by responding to the dynamically changing Indian economy by moving

across sectors such as Lifestyle, Pharma, Cyclical, Technology, etc.

Sector Schemes

These schemes focus on particular sector as IT, Banking, etc. They seek to generate
long-term capital appreciation by investing in equity and related securities of
companies in that particular sector.

♦ Index Schemes

These schemes aim to provide returns that closely correspond to the return of a
particular stock market index such as BSE Sensex, NSE Nifty, etc. Such schemes invest
in all the stocks comprising the index in approximately the same weightage as they are
given in that index.

♦ Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs)

ETFs invest in stocks underlying a particular stock index like NSE Nifty or BSE
Sensex. They are similar to an index fund with one crucial difference. ETFs are listed
and traded on a stock exchange. In contrast, an index fund is bought and sold by the
fund and its distributors.

♦ Equity Tax Saving Schemes

These work on similar lines as diversified equity funds and seek to achieve long-term
capital appreciation by investing in the entire universe of stocks. The only difference
between these funds and equity-diversified funds is that they demand a lock-in of 3
years to gain tax benefits.

♦ Dynamic Funds

These schemes alter their exposure to different asset classes based on the market
scenario. Such funds typically try to book profits when the markets are overvalued and
remain fully invested in equities when the markets are undervalued. This is suitable for
investors who find it difficult to decide when to quit from equity.

♦ Balanced Schemes

These schemes seek to achieve long-term capital appreciation with stability of

investment and current income from a balanced portfolio of high quality equity and
fixed-income securities.
♦ Medium-Term Debt Schemes

These schemes have a portfolio of debt and money market instruments where the
average maturity of the underlying portfolio is in the range of five to seven years.

♦ Short-Term Debt Schemes

These schemes have a portfolio of debt and money market instruments where the

average maturity of the underlying portfolio is in the range of one to two years.

• Money Market Debt Schemes

These schemes invest in debt securities of a short-term nature, which generally means

securities of less than one-year maturity. The typical short-term interest-bearing

instruments these funds invest in Treasury Bills, Certificates of Deposit, Commercial

Paper and Inter-Bank Call Money Market.

♦ Medium-Term Gilt Schemes

These schemes invest in government securities. The average maturity of the securities

in the scheme is over three years.

♦ Short-Term Gilt Schemes

These schemes invest in government securities. The securities invested in are of short to

medium term maturities.

♦ Floating Rate Funds

They invest in debt securities with floating interest rates, which are generally linked to

some benchmark rate like MIBOR. Floating rate funds have a high relevance when

interest rates are on the rise helping investors to ride the interest rate rise.

♦ Monthly Income Plans (MIPS)

These are basically debt schemes, which make marginal investments in the range of 10-

25% in equity to boost the scheme’s returns. MIP schemes are ideal for investors who

seek slightly higher return that pure long-term debt schemes at marginally higher risk.



Mutual Funds offer three methods of receiving income:

♦ Growth Plan

In this plan, dividend is neither declared nor paid out to the investor but is built into the
value of the NAV. In other words, the NAV increases over time due to such incomes
and the investor realizes only the capital appreciation on redemption of his investment.

♦ Income Plan
In this plan, dividends are paid-out to the investor. In other words, the NAV
only reflects the capital appreciation or depreciation in market price of the underlying
♦ Dividend Re-investment Plan

In this case, dividend is declared but not paid out to the investor, instead, it is
reinvested back into the scheme at the then prevailing NAV. In other words, the
investor is given additional units and not cash as dividend.


1. Systematic Investment Plans (SIPs)

These are best suited for young people who have started their careers and need to build
their wealth. SIPs entail an investor to invest a fixed sum of money at regular intervals
in the Mutual fund scheme the investor has chosen, an investor opting for SIP in xyz

Mutual Fund scheme will need to invest a certain sum on money every
month/quarter/half-year in the scheme.

2. Systematic Withdrawal Plans (SWPs)

These plans are best suited for people nearing retirement. In these plans, an
investor invests in a mutual fund scheme and is allowed to withdraw a fixed sum of
money at regular intervals to take care of his expenses

3. Systematic Transfer Plans (STPs)

They allow the investor to transfer on a periodic basis a specified amount from
one scheme to another within the same fund family – meaning two schemes belonging
to the same mutual fund. A transfer will be treated as redemption of units from the
scheme from which the transfer is made. Such redemption or investment will be at the
applicable NAV. This service allows the investor to manage his investments actively to
achieve his objectives. Many funds do not even charge any transaction fees for his
service – an added advantage for the active investor.
There are several reasons that can be attributed to the growing
popularity and suitability of Mutual Funds as an investment vehicle especially for retail

♦ Mutual Funds offer the investors a valuable tool – Asset Allocation. This is
explained by an example.

An investor investing Rs.1 lakh in a mutual fund scheme, which has collected Rs.100
corers and invested the money in various investment options, will have Rs.1 lakh
spread over a number of investment options as demonstrated below:
Investment Type Percentage of Total portfolio of Investors portfolio
Allocation (% of the Mutual Fund allocation (Rs.)
total portfolio) scheme (Rs. In
EQUITY: 57% 57 57,000
State Bank of India 15% 15 15,000
Infosys Technologies 12% 12 12,000
ABB 10% 10 10,000
Reliance Industries 9% 9 9,000
MICO 7% 7 7,000
Tata Power 4% 4 4,000
DEBT: 43% 43 43,000
Govt. Securities 20% 20 20,000
Company Debentures 10% 10 10,000
Institution Bonds 9% 9 9,000
Money Market 4% 4 4,000
Total 100% 100 1,00,000

Thus ‘Asset Allocation’ is allocating your investments in to different investment

options depending on your risk profile and return expectations.

Diversification is spreading your investment amount over a larger number of investments in order to reduce risk. For
instance, if you have Rs.10,000 to invest in Information Technology (IT) stocks, this amount will only buy you a handful of
stocks of perhaps one or two companies. A fall in the market price of any of these

company stocks will significantly erode your investment amount instead it makes sense to invest in an IT sector mutual fund
scheme so that your Rs.10,000 is spread across a larger number of stocks thereby reducing your risk.


Few investors have the time or expertise to manage their personal investments every
day, to efficiently reinvest interest or dividend income, or to investigate the
thousands of securities available in the financial markets. Fund managers are
professionals and experienced in tracking the finance markets, having access to
extensive research and market information, which enables them to decide which
securities to buy and sell for the fund. For an individual investor like you, this
professionalism is built in when you invest in the Mutual Fund.


While investing directly in securities, all the costs of investing such as brokerage, custodial services etc. Borne by you are at
the highest rates due to small transaction sizes. However, when going through a fund, you have the benefit of economies of
scale; the fund pays lesser costs because of larger volumes, a benefit passed on to its investors like you.


This is one of the most important benefits of a Mutual Fund. Often you hold shares or bonds that you cannot directly, easily
and quickly sell. In such situations, it could take several days or even longer before you are able to liquidate his Mutual Fund
investment by selling the units to the fund itself and receive his money within 3 working days.


The investor gets regular information on the value of his investment in addition to disclosure on the specific investments
made by the fund, the proportion invested in each class of assets and the fund manager’s investment strategy and outlook.


Tax saving schemes of Mutual Funds offer investor a tax rebate under section 88 of
the Income Tax Act. Under this section, an investor can invest up to Rs.10,000 per
Financial year in a tax saving scheme. The rate of rebate under this section depends
on the investor’s total income.


Index schemes of mutual funds give you the opportunity of investing in scrips that
make up a particular index in the same proportion of weightage that these scrips
have in the index. Thus, the return on your investment mirrors the movement of the


Gilt and Money Market Schemes of Mutual Funds also give you the opportunity to
invest in Government Securities and Money Markets (including the inter banking
call money market)


All Mutual Funds are registered with SEBI and they function within the provisions
of strict regulations designed to protect the interests of investors. The operations of
Mutual Funds are regularly monitored by SEBI.


Mutual Funds offer their investors a number of facilities such as inter-fund transfers,
online checking of holding status etc, which direct investments don’t offer.


Investing in Mutual Funds, as with any security, does not come without risk. One of the
most basic economic principles is that risk and reward are directly correlated. In other
words, the greater the potential risk the greater the potential return. The types of risk
commonly associated with Mutual Funds are:


Market risk relates to the market value of a security in the future. Market prices
fluctuate and are susceptible to economic and financial trends, supply and demand, and
many other factors that cannot be precisely predicted or controlled.


Changes in the tax laws, trade regulations, administered prices, etc are some of the
many political factors that create market risk. Although collectively, as citizens, we
have indirect control through the power of our vote individually, as investors, we have
virtually no control.


Interest rate risk relates to future changes in interest rates. For instance, if an investor
invests in a long-term debt Mutual Fund scheme and interest rates increase, the NAV of
the scheme will fall because the scheme will be end up holding debt offering lower
interest rates.


Business risk is the uncertainty concerning the future existence, stability, and
profitability of the issuer of the security. Business risk is inherent in all business
ventures. The future financial stability of a company cannot be predicted or guaranteed,
nor can the price of its securities. Adverse changes in business circumstances will
reduce the market price of the company’s equity resulting in proportionate fall in the
NAV of the Mutual Fund scheme, which has invested in the equity of such a company.


Economic risk involves uncertainty in the economy, which, in turn, can have an adverse
effect on a company’s business. For instance, if monsoons fail in a year, equity stocks
of agriculture-based companies will fall and NAVs of Mutual Funds, which have
invested in such stocks, will fall proportionately.


The study here has been focused to analyse an open ended equity fund of Asset
Management Company namely India Infoline. The fund performance is analyzed
based on the tools Sharpe’s Ratio, Treynor’s Ratio, β (Beta) Co-efficient, Alpha


1. To help an investor make a right choice of investment, while considering the

inherent risk factors.
2. To understand the recent trends in Mutual Funds world
3. To show the wide range of investment options available in Mutual Funds by
Explaining its various schemes
4. The scheme is suitable for investors with a time horizon of 2 to 3 years


The Methodology involves randomly selecting Open-Ended equity fund of one fund
house name is . The data collected for this project is basically from two
sources, they are:-

1. Primary sources: The monthly fact sheets of different fund houses and research
reports from banks.
2. Secondary sources: Collection of data from Internet and Books.

The Mutual Fund industry in India started in 1963 with the formation of Unit Trust of
India, at the initiative of the Government of India and Reserve Bank of India. The
History of Mutual Funds in India can be broadly divided into four distinct phases.

• First Phase –(1964-87)

Unit Trust of India (UTI) was established on 1963 by an act of parliament. It was set up
by Reserve Bank of India and functioned under the regulatory and administrative
control of the Reserve Bank of India. In 1978 UTI was de-linked from the RBI and the
Industrial Development Bank of India (IDBI) took over the regulatory and
administrative control in place of RBI. The first scheme launched by UTI was Unit
Scheme 1964. At the end of 1988 UTI had Rs.6,700 crores of assets under

• Second Phase- 1987-1993(Entry of Public Sector Funds)

1987 marked the entry of non-UTI, Public Sector Mutual Funds set up by Public Sector
Banks and Life Insurance Corporation of India (LIC) and General Insurance
Corporation of India (GIC). SBI Mutual Fund was the first non -UTI Mutual Fund
established in June 1987 followed by Canbank Mutual Fund (Dec 87), Punjab National
Bank Mutual Fund (Aug 89), Indian Bank Mutual Fund (Nov 89), Bank of India (Jun
90), Bank of Baroda Mutual Fund (Oct 92). LIC established its Mutual Fund in June
1989 while GIC had set up its Mutual Fund in June 1989 while GIC had set up its
Mutual Fund in December 1990.At the end of 1993, the Mutual Fund industry had
assets under management of Rs.47,004 crores.

• Third Phase-1993-2003 (Entry of Private Sector funds)

With the entry of private sector funds in 1993, a new era started in the Indian Mutual
Fund industry, giving the Indian investors a wider choice of fund families. Also, 1993
was the year in which the first Mutual Fund Regulations came into being, under which
all Mutual Funds, except UTI were to be registered and governed. The erstwhile
Kothari pioneer (now merged with UTI were to be registered and governed. The
erstwhile Kothari pioneer (now merged with Franklin Templeton) was the first Private
Sector Mutual Fund registered in July 1993.

The 1993 SEBI (Mutual Fund) regulations were substituted by a more

comprehensive and revised Mutual Fund Regulations in 1996. The industry now
functions under the SEBI (Mutual Fund) regulations 1996.

The number of Mutual Fund houses went on increasing, with many foreign
Mutual Funds setting up funds in India and also the industry has witnessed several
mergers and acquisitions. As at the end of January 2003, there were 33 Mutual Funds
with total assets of Rs.1,21,805 Crores. The Unit Trust of India with Rs.44,541 crores
of assets under management was way ahead of other Mutual Funds.
• Fourth Phase –(since February 2003)

In February 2003, following the repeal of the Unit Trust of India Act 1963. UTI was
bifurcated into two separate entities. One is the specified Undertaking of the Unit Trust
of India with assets under management of Rs.29,835 crores As at the end of January
2003, representing broadly, the assets of US 64 scheme, assured return and certain other
schemes. The specified Undertaking of Unit Trust of India, functioning under an
administrator and under the rules framed by Government of India and does not come
under the purview of the Mutual Fund Regulations. The second is the UTI Mutual Fund
Ltd, sponsored by SBI, PNB, BOB and LIC. It is registered with SEBI and functions
under the Mutual Fund Regulations. With the bifurcation of the erstwhile.

UTI which had in March 2000 more than Rs. 76,000crores of assets under management
and with the setting up of a UTI Mutual Fund, confirming to the SEBI Mutual Fund
Regulations, and with recent mergers taking place among different private sector funds,
the Mutual Fund industry has entered its current phase of consolidation and growth. As
at the end of October 31, 2003, there were 31 funds, which manage assets of Rs.1,
26,726crores under 386 schemes.


Mutual Fund industry today, with about 30 players and more than six hundred schemes,
is one of the most preferred investment avenues in India. However, with a plethora of
schemes to choose from, the retail investor faces problems in selecting funds. Factors
such as investment strategy and management style are qualitative, but the funds record
is an important indicator too.
Though past performance alone cannot be indicative of future performance, it
is, frankly, the only quantitative way to judge how good a fund is at present. Therefore,
there is a need to correctly assess the past performance of different Mutual Funds.
Worldwide, good Mutual Fund companies over are known by their AMC’s and this
fame is directly linked to their superior stock selection skills.

For Mutual Funds to grow, AMC’s must be held accountable for their
selection of stocks. In other words, there must be some performance indicator that will
reveal the quality of stock selection of various AMC’s.

Return alone should not be considered as the basis of measurement of the

performance of a Mutual Fund scheme, it should also include the risk taken by the fund
manager because different funds will have different levels of risk attached to them. Risk
associated with a fund, in a general, can be defined as Variability or fluctuations in the
returns generated by it. The higher the fluctuations in the returns of a fund during a
given period, higher will be the risk associated with it. These fluctuations in the returns

generated by a fund are resultant of two guiding forces. First, general market
fluctuations, which affect all the securities, present in the market, called Market risk or
Systematic risk and second, fluctuations due to specific securities present in the
portfolio of the fund, called Unsystematic risk. The Total Risk of a given fund is sum of
these two and is measured in terms of standard deviation of returns of the fund.

Systematic risk, on the other hand, is measured in terms of Beta, which

represents fluctuations in the NAV of the fund vis-à-vis market. The more responsive
the NAV of a Mutual Fund is to the changes in the market; higher will be its beta. Beta
is calculated by relating the returns on a Mutual Fund with the returns in the market.
While Unsystematic risk can be diversified through investments in a number of
instruments, systematic risk cannot. By using the risk return relationship, we try to
assess the competitive strength of the Mutual Funds one another in a better way. In
order to determine the risk-adjusted returns of investment portfolios, several eminent
authors have worked since 1960s to develop composite performance indices to evaluate
a portfolio by comparing alternative portfolios within a particular risk class.

The most important and widely used measures of performance are:

• The Treynor’Measure
• The Sharpe Measure
• Jenson Model
• Fama Model

1) The Treynor Measure:-

Developed by Jack Treynor, this performance measure evaluates funds on the basis of
Treynor's Index.
This Index is a ratio of return generated by the fund over and above risk free rate of
return (generally taken to be the return on securities backed by the government, as there

is no credit risk associated), during a given period and systematic risk associated with it
(beta). Symbolically, it can be represented as:

Treynor's Index (Ti) = (Ri - Rf)/Bi.

Ri represents return on fund,
Rf is risk free rate of return, and
Bi is beta of the fund.

All risk-averse investors would like to maximize this value. While a high and positive
Treynor's Index shows a superior risk-adjusted performance of a fund, a low and
negative Treynor's Index is an indication of unfavorable performance.

2) The Sharpe Measure :-

In this model, performance of a fund is evaluated on the basis of Sharpe Ratio, which is
a ratio of returns generated by the fund over and above risk free rate of return and the
total risk associated with it.
According to Sharpe, it is the total risk of the fund that the investors are concerned
about. So, the model evaluates funds on the basis of reward per unit of total risk.
Symbolically, it can be written as:

Sharpe Index (Si) = (Ri - Rf)/Si

Si is standard deviation of the fund,
Ri represents return on fund, and
Rf is risk free rate of return.
While a high and positive Sharpe Ratio shows a superior risk-adjusted performance of a
fund, a low and negative Sharpe Ratio is an indication of unfavorable performance.

Comparison of Sharpe and Treynor

Sharpe and Treynor measures are similar in a way, since they both divide the risk
premium by a numerical risk measure. The total risk is appropriate when we are
evaluating the risk return relationship for well-diversified portfolios. On the other hand,
the systematic risk is the relevant measure of risk when we are evaluating less than
fully diversified portfolios or individual stocks. For a well-diversified portfolio the total
risk is equal to systematic risk. Rankings based on total risk (Sharpe measure) and
systematic risk (Treynor measure) should be identical for a well-diversified portfolio,
as the total risk is reduced to systematic risk. Therefore, a poorly diversified fund that
ranks higher on Treynor measure, compared with another fund that is highly
diversified, will rank lower on Sharpe Measure.

3) Jenson Model:-

Jenson's model proposes another risk adjusted performance measure. This measure was
developed by Michael Jenson and is sometimes referred to as the differential Return
Method. This measure involves evaluation of the returns that the fund has generated vs.
the returns actually expected out of the fund1 given the level of its systematic risk. The
surplus between the two returns is called Alpha, which measures the performance of a
fund compared with the actual returns over the period. Required return of a fund at a
given level of risk (Bi) can be calculated as:

Ri = Rf + Bi (Rm - Rf)
Ri represents return on fund, and
Rm is average market return during the given period,
Rf is risk free rate of return, and
Bi is Beta deviation of the fund.

After calculating it, Alpha can be obtained by subtracting required return from
the actual return of the fund.

Higher alpha represents superior performance of the fund and vice versa.
Limitation of this model is that it considers only systematic risk not the entire risk
associated with the fund and an ordinary investor cannot mitigate unsystematic risk, as
his knowledge of market is primitive.

4) Fama Model:-

The Eugene Fama model is an extension of Jenson model. This model compares the
performance, measured in terms of returns, of a fund with the required return
commensurate with the total risk associated with it. The difference between these two is
taken as a measure of the performance of the fund and is called Net Selectivity. The Net
Selectivity represents the stock selection skill of the fund manager, as it is the excess
returns over and above the return required to compensate for the total risk taken by the
fund manager. Higher value of which indicates that fund manager has earned returns
well above the return commensurate with the level of risk taken by him.

Required return can be calculated as: Ri = Rf + Si/Sm*(Rm - Rf)

Ri represents return on fund,
Sm is standard deviation of market returns,
Rm is average market return during the given period, and
Rf is risk free rate of return.
The Net Selectivity is then calculated by subtracting this required return from
the actual return of the fund.

Among the above performance measures, two models namely, Treynor measure and
Jenson model use Systematic risk is based on the premise that the Unsystematic risk is
diversifiable. These models are suitable for large investors like institutional investors
with high risk taking capacities as they do not face paucity of funds and can invest in a
number of options to dilute some risks. For them, a portfolio can be spread across a
number of stocks and sectors. However, Sharpe measure and Fama model that consider
the entire risk associated with fund are suitable for small investors, as the ordinary
investor lacks the necessary skill and resources to diversify. Moreover, the selection of
the fund on the basis of superior stock selection ability of the fund manager will also
help in safeguarding the money invested to a great extent. The investment in funds that
have generated big returns at higher levels of risks leaves the money all the more prone
to risks of all kinds that may exceed the individual investors' risk appetite.

The comparison between these schemes is made based on the following factors

A)Sharpe’s Ratio
B)Treynor’s Ratio
C)β (Beta) co-efficient.
D)Alpha Co-efficient

A) The Sharpe’s Measure:-

In this model, performance of a fund is evaluated on the basis of Sharpe Ratio, which is
a ratio of returns generated by the fund over and above risk free rate of return and the
total risk associated with it.
According to Sharpe, it is the total risk of the fund that the investors are concerned
about. So, the model evaluates funds on the basis of reward per unit of total risk.
Symbolically, it can be written as:

Sharpe Index (Si) = (Ri - Rf)/Si

Si is Standard Deviation of the fund.

While a high and positive Sharpe Ratio shows a superior risk-adjusted performance of a
fund, a low and negative Sharpe Ratio is an indication of unfavorable performance.

B) The Treynor Measure:-

Developed by Jack Treynor, this performance measure evaluates funds on the basis of
Treynor's Index.
This Index is a ratio of return generated by the fund over and above risk free rate of
return (generally taken to be the return on securities backed by the government, as there
is no credit risk associated), during a given period and systematic risk associated with it
(beta). Symbolically, it can be represented as:
Treynor's Index (Ti) = (Ri - Rf)/Bi.

Ri represents return on fund,
Rf is risk free rate of return,
and Bi is beta of the fund.

All risk-averse investors would like to maximize this value. While a high and positive
Treynor's Index shows a superior risk-adjusted performance of a fund, a low and
negative Treynor's Index is an indication of unfavorable performance.

C) β (Beta) Co-efficient:-

Systematic risk is measured in terms of Beta, which represents fluctuations in the NAV
of the fund vis-à-vis market. The more responsive the NAV of a Mutual Fund is to the
changes in the market; higher will be its beta. Beta is calculated by relating the returns
on a Mutual Fund with the returns in the market. While unsystematic risk can be
diversified through investments in a number of instruments, systematic risk cannot. By
using the risk return relationship, we try to assess the competitive strength of the
Mutual Funds vis-à-vis one another in a better way.
β (Beta) is calculated as N (Σ XY) – Σ XΣ Y
N (Σ X2) – (Σ X) 2
D) Alpha Co-efficient:-

It is the excess return of the fund above risk adjusted market return, given its level of
risk as measured by beta. An investment with a positive alpha indicates that the fund
has performed better than expected, given its beta. And a negative alpha indicates that
the fund has under performed, for its risk

E) Returns:- Returns for the last one-year of different schemes are taken for the
comparison and analysis part.


♦ Follows a bottom up stock specific approach and invests in a mix of large cap

♦ The fund has portfolio turnover ratio.

♦ The fund manager is bullish on the markets in the long term and expects good
returns from the same.
♦ The fund manager is of the opinion that the market may not fall due to the
abundant liquidity in the system. However the fund manager sees high oil
prices a big concern in the global markets.
♦ The fund has invested into equities to the tune of 93% of the total portfolio
.the fund manager would continue to hold 7-10% of the portfolio in cash.
♦ During the month the fund has exited out of the stocks like BPCL, Tata
Chemicals and Glaxo pharma.However the fund has entered into stocks
wockhardt and HCL Technologies.
♦ The fund is recommended for investors willing to take above average risk.

To generate capital appreciation from a portfolio of predominantly equity and
equity related securities with investment in, generally, not more than 30 stocks.

The sheme is a diversified equity growth scheme, with a portfolio of generally not more
than 30 choicest stocks, handpicked by fund management team. The portfolio comprises

Guide to Mutual Funds “OUTLOOK” By Layman’s

“ECONOMIC TIMES” Mutual Funds Primer



Sponsor is the person who acting alone or in combination with another body corporate
establishes a Mutual Fund. Sponsor must contribute at least 40% of the net worth of the
Investment Managed and meet the eligibility criteria prescribed under the securities and
Exchange Board of India (Mutual Fund) Regulations, 1996. The Sponsor is not
responsible or liable for any loss or short fall resulting from the operation of the
schemes beyond the initial contribution made by it towards setting up the Mutual Fund.


The Mutual Fund is constituted as a trust in accordance with the provisions of the
Indian Trusts Act, 1882 by the Sponsor. The trust deed is registered under the Indian
Registration Act, 1908.


Trustee is usually a company (Corporate body) or a Board of Trustees (body of

individuals). The main responsibility of the trustee is to safeguard the interest of the
unit holders and inter alia ensure that the AMC functions in the interest of investors and
in accordance with the securities and Exchange Board of India (Mutual Funds)
Regulations, 1996, the provisions of the Trust Deed and the Offer Documents of the
respective Schemes. At least 2/3rd directors of the Trustee are independent directors
who are not associated with the Sponsor in any manner.
Asset Management Company (AMC)

The AMC if so authorized by the Trust Deed appoints the Registrar and Transfer Agent
to the Mutual Fund. The Registrar processes the application form, redemption requests
and dispatches account statements to the unit holders. The Registrar and Transfer agent
also handles communications with investors and updates investor records.

Unit Holders

Unit Holders are those investing in Mutual Fund.


Custodian is the agency, which will have the legal possession of all the securities
purchased by the Mutual Fund.


The Stock Exchange Board of India (SEBI) is regulatory authority of the Mutual Funds.

Equity Fund is the one in which much of the portfolio is invested in corporate
securities and Debt Fund is the one in which much of the portfolio is invested in Gilt
and money market securities.

In an Open-ended Mutual Fund, there are no limits on the total size of the corpus.
Investors are permitted to enter and exit the open-ended Mutual Fund at any point of
time at a price that is linked to the net asset value (NAV).
In case of Closed-ended funds, the total size of the corpus is limited by the size of the
initial offer.

• A Dividend plan entails a regular payment of dividend to the investors.

• A Re-investment plan is a plan where these dividends are reinvested in the
scheme itself.
• A Growth plan is one where no dividends are declared and investor only gains
through capital appreciation in the NAV of the fund.

NAV is the net asset value of the fund. Simply put it reflects what the unit held by an
investor is worth at current market prices.
