professional life.

Findings / Observations:
We have found certain observations on the basis of above mentioned

 Annual return of MCB is 11.50% while ABL is providing 10.78% while

last month return of MCB is 2.0 % and ABL is 11.13%. It is clearly shown
that MCB is giving greater return than ABL .Here monthly return of MCB is
less than ABL due to change in price anomalies by MUFAP but if we see
the returns of previous months then MCB DCF is leading fund.
 It is evident that fund return of MCB is 72 bps higher is than ABL.

 Return from MCB DCF is closer to the benchmark (1 Month KIBOR) as

compare to ABL-IF.
 MCB fund is more secured than ABL fund because its major investment is
in T-bills or Government backed securities.
 Management Expense Ratio of both funds are 1.5% annually while MCB is
charging 1.5% Front-end load and ABL have no such type of load. Here, it
is notable thing that MCB has no back-end load which facilitates the
investor when he/she want to quit that pool of investments.

It is assessed that MCB Dynamic Cash Fund is overall a good fund to
