Aman Srivastava (Assistant Professor, Jaipuria Institute of Management, Noida, U.P., India) Rakesh Gupta (Associate Professor, IILM, Greater Noida, U.P., India) In this paper an attempt is made to evaluate the performance of growth oriented equity schemes of Indian mutual funds on the basis of monthly returns compared to benchmark returns. For this purpose, risk adjusted performance measures relative performance index (RPI), Jenson ratio, Treynor·s ratio, Sharpe ratio and Fama & French ratios are employed. The findings of the study suggest that majority of the mutual funds outperformed the market benchmarks. It is found that, Sahara mutual fund and Birla Sunlife outperformed the others in all the evaluation techniques employed. The results suggest that although the funds outperformed the benchmarks but even then the Indian fund managers are required to put more efforts for diversifying their portfolios as they are not diversified properly.

P.Vikkraman (Assistant Professor, Anna University, Coimbatore, Tamilnadu) P.Varadharajan (Faculty member, PSG Institute of Management, Coimbatore, Tamilnadu) Joshua selvakumar (Faculty member, PSG) The research paper deals with the performance of top three mutual funds in the equity, income and the balanced funds category based on their return. The main focus of this research is to find out the risk and return and study the performance of the funds and to compare it with the market return. This research is limited to 9 open-ended funds 3 each in the equity, income & the balanced funds respectively subject to the availability of NAV Data for three years (2006-2008) The various tools used for analysis are annual return, risk, beta, sharpe, treynor and jense measures, correlation & the regression The analysis reveals the performance of the funds with the market over the three years and whether the fund·s managers have good timing abilities and proper stock selection capacities. Also the behaviour of the funds during the up & the down market are analyzed. The findings are most of the funds which performed well in the up market yielded negative returns below the market level during the down period. The conservative income funds alone gave positive returns. The timing abilities and the stock selecting capacities of the fund managers are nil or very poor which might be the reason for the performance of the funds.
