Introduction of mutual fundConcept of mutual fundsA Mutual Fund is a trust that pools the savings of a number of investors who sharea common financial goal. The money thus collected is then invested in capitalmarket instruments such as shares, debentures and other securities. The incomeearned through these investments and the capital appreciation realised are sharedby its unit holders in proportion to the number of units owned by them. Thus aMutual Fund is the most suitable investment for the common man as it offers anopportunity to invest in a diversified, professionally managed basket of securitiesat a relatively low cost. The flow chart below describes broadly the working of amutual fund:
Mutual Fund Operation Flow Chart Mutual Funds Industry in IndiaThe origin of mutual fund industry in India is with the introduction of the conceptof mutual fund by UTI in the year 1963. Though the growth was slow, but itaccelerated from the year 1987 when non-UTI players entered the industry.In the past decade, Indian mutual fund industry had seen a dramatic improvement,both quality wise as well as quantity wise. Before, the monopoly of the market hadseen an ending phase, the Assets Under Management (AUM) was Rs. 67bn. Theprivate sector entry to the fund family rose the AUM to Rs. 470 bn in March 1993
and till April 2004, it reached the height of 1,540 bn.Putting the AUM of theIndian Mutual Funds Industry into comparison, the total of it is less than thedeposits of SBI alone, constitute less than 11% of the total deposits held by theIndian banking industry.The main reason of its poor growth is that the mutual fund industry in India is newin the country. Large sections of Indian investors are yet to be intellectuated withthe concept. Hence, it is the prime responsibility of all mutual fund companies, tomarket the product correctly abreast of selling.The mutual fund industry can be broadly put into four phases according to thedevelopment of the sector. Each phase is briefly described as under.First Phase - 1964-87Unit Trust of India (UTI) was established on 1963 by an Act of Parliament. It wasset up by the Reserve Bank of India and functioned under the Regulatory andadministrative control of the Reserve Bank of India. In 1978 UTI was de-linkedfrom the RBI and the Industrial Development Bank of India (IDBI) took over theregulatory and administrative control in place of RBI. The first scheme launchedby UTI was Unit Scheme 1964. At the end of 1988 UTI had Rs.6, 700 crores ofassets under management.Second Phase - 1987-1993 (Entry of Public Sector Funds)Entry of non-UTI mutual funds. SBI Mutual Fund was the first followed byCanbank Mutual Fund (Dec 87), Punjab National Bank Mutual Fund (Aug 89),
Indian Bank Mutual Fund (Nov 89), Bank of India (Jun 90), Bank of BarodaMutual Fund (Oct 92). LIC in 1989 and GIC in 1990. The end of 1993 markedRs.47,004 as assets under management.Third Phase - 1993-2003 (Entry of Private Sector Funds)With the entry of private sector funds in 1993, a new era started in the Indianmutual 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 intobeing, under which all mutual funds, except UTI were to be registered andgoverned. 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 morecomprehensive and revised Mutual Fund Regulations in 1996. The industry nowfunctions under the SEBI (Mutual Fund) Regulations 1996.The number of mutual fund houses went on increasing, with many foreign mutualfunds setting up funds in India and also the industry has witnessed several mergersand acquisitions. As at the end of January 2003, there were 33 mutual funds withtotal assets of Rs. 1, 21,805 crores. The Unit Trust of India with Rs.44, 541 croresof assets under management was way ahead of other mutual funds.Fourth Phase - since February 2003This phase had bitter experience for UTI. It was bifurcated into two separateentities. One is the Specified Undertaking of the Unit Trust of India with AUM of
Rs.29,835 crores (as on January 2003). The Specified Undertaking of Unit Trust ofIndia, functioning under an administrator and under the rules framed byGovernment of India and does not come under the purview of the Mutual FundRegulations.The second is the UTI Mutual Fund Ltd, sponsored by SBI, PNB, BOB and LIC. Itis registered with SEBI and functions under the Mutual Fund Regulations. With thebifurcation of the erstwhile UTI which had in March 2000 more than Rs.76,000crores of AUM and with the setting up of a UTI Mutual Fund, conforming to theSEBI Mutual Fund Regulations, and with recent mergers taking place amongdifferent private sector funds, the mutual fund industry has entered its currentphase of consolidation and growth. As at the end of September, 2004, there were29 funds, which manage assets of Rs.153108 crores under 421 schemes.

What is a Mutual FundCapital appreciations realized by the scheme are shared by its unit holders inproportion to the number of A Mutual Fund is a trust that pools the savings of anumber of investors who share a common financial goal. The money thus collectedis invested by the fund manager in different types of securities depending upon theobjective of the scheme. These could range from shares to debentures to moneymarket instruments. The income earned through these investments and the unitsowned by them. Thus a Mutual Fund is the most suitable investment for thecommon man as it offers an opportunity to invest in a diversified, professionallymanaged portfolio at a relatively low cost. The small savings of all the investorsare put together to increase the buying power and hire a professional manager toinvest and monitor the money. Anybody with an investible surplus of as little as afew thousand rupees can invest in Mutual Funds. Each Mutual Fund scheme has adefined investment objective and strategy.
Mutual Fund StructureThe structure consists of :SponsorSponsor is the person who acting alone or in combination with another bodycorporate establishes a mutual fund. Sponsor must contribute at least 40% of thenet worth of the Investment Managed and meet the eligibility criteria prescribedunder the Securities and Exchange Board of India (Mutual Funds) Regulations,1996.The Sponsor is not responsible or liable for any loss or shortfall resultingfrom the operation of the Schemes beyond the initial contribution made by ittowards setting up of the Mutual Fund.
TrustThe Mutual Fund is constituted as a trust in accordance with the provisions of theIndian Trusts Act, 1882 by the Sponsor. The trust deed is registered under theIndian Registration Act, 1908TrusteeTrustee is usually a company (corporate body) or a Board of Trustees (body ofindividuals). The main responsibility of the Trustee is to safeguard the interest ofthe unit holders and inter alia ensure that the AMC functions in the interest ofinvestors and in accordance with the Securities and Exchange Board of India(Mutual Funds) Regulations, 1996, the provisions of the Trust Deed and the OfferDocuments of the respective Schemes. Atleast 2/3rd directors of the Trustee areindependent directors who are not associated with the Sponsor in any manner.Asset Management Company (AMC)The AMC is appointed by the Trustee as the Investment Manager of the MutualFund. The AMC is required to be approved by the Securities and Exchange Boardof India(SEBI) to act as an asset management company of the Mutual Fund. Atleast 50% of the directors of the AMC are independent directors who are not
associated with the Sponsor in any manner. The AMC must have a net worth of atleast 10 corers at all times.Registrar and Transfer AgentThe AMC if so authorized by the Trust Deed appoints the Registrar and TransferAgent to the Mutual Fund. The Registrar processes the application form,redemption requests and dispatches account statements to the unit holders. TheRegistrar and Transfer agent also handles communications with investors andupdates investor recordsThe AMC if so authorized by the Trust Deed appoints the Registrar and TransferAgent to the Mutual Fund.

Types of Schemes Investment ObjectiveSchemes can be classified by way of their stated investment objective such asGrowth Fund, Balanced Fund, Income Fund etc.
Equity Oriented SchemesThese schemes, also commonly called Growth Schemes, seek to invest a majorityof their funds in equities and a small portion in money market instruments. Suchschemes have the potential to deliver superior returns over the long term. However,because they invest in equities, these schemes are exposed to fluctuations in valueespecially in the short term.Equity schemes are hence not suitable for investors seeking regular income orneeding to use their investments in the short-term. They are ideal for investors whohave a long-term investment horizon. The NAV prices of equity fund fluctuateswith market value of the underlying stock which are influenced by external factorssuch as social, political as well as economic.HDFC Growth Fund, HDFC Tax Plan2000 and HDFC Index Fund are examples of equity schemes.
General PurposeThe investment objectives of general-purpose equity schemes do not restrict themto invest in specific industries or sectors. They thus have a diversified portfolio ofcompanies across a large spectrum of industries. While they are exposed to equityprice risks, diversified general-purpose equity funds seek to reduce the sector orstock specific risks through diversification. They mainly have market riskexposure. HDFC Growth Fund is a general-purpose equity scheme. Sector SpecificThese schemes restrict their investing to one or more pre-defined sectors, e.g.technology sector. Since they depend upon the performance of select sectors only,these schemes are inherently more risky than general-purpose schemes. They aresuited for informed investors who wish to take a view and risk on the concernedsector. Special SchemesIndex schemesThe primary purpose of an Index is to serve as a measure of the performance of themarket as a whole, or a specific sector of the market. An Index also serves as arelevant benchmark to evaluate the performance of mutual funds. Some investorsare interested in investing in the market in general rather than investing in anyspecific fund. Such investors are happy to receive the returns posted by themarkets. As it is not practical to invest in each and every stock in the market in
proportion to its size, these investors are comfortable investing in a fund that theybelieve is a good representative of the entire market. Index Funds are launched andmanaged for such investors. An example to such a fund is the HDFC Index Fund.Tax saving schemesInvestors (individuals and Hindu Undivided Families (“HUFs”)) are beingencouraged to invest in equity markets through Equity Linked Savings Scheme(“ELSS”) by offering them a tax rebate. Units purchased cannot be assigned /transferred/ pledged / redeemed / switched – out until completion of 3 years fromthe date of allotment of the respective Units.The Scheme is subject to Securities & Exchange Board of India (Mutual Funds)Regulations, 1996 and the notifications issued by the Ministry of Finance(Department of Economic Affairs), Government of India regarding ELSS.Subject to such conditions and limitations, as prescribed under Section 88 of theIncome-tax Act, 1961, subscriptions to the Units not exceeding Rs.10, 000 wouldbe eligible to a deduction, from income tax, of an amount equal to 20% of theamount subscribed. HDFC Tax Plan 2000 is such a fund.Real Estate FundsSpecialized real estate funds would invest in real estates directly, or may fund realestate developers or lend to them directly or buy shares of housing financecompanies or may even buy their securitized assets.
Debt Based SchemesThese schemes, also commonly called Income Schemes, invest in debt securitiessuch as corporate bonds, debentures and government securities. The prices of theseschemes tend to be more stable compared with equity schemes and most of thereturns to the investors are generated through dividends or steady capitalappreciation. These schemes are ideal for conservative investors or those not in aposition to take higher equity risks, such as retired individuals. However, ascompared to the money market schemes they do have a higher price fluctuationrisk and compared to a Gilt fund they have a higher credit risk
Income SchemesThese schemes invest in money markets, bonds and debentures of corporates withmedium and long-term maturities. These schemes primarily target current incomeinstead of capital appreciation. They therefore distribute a substantial part of theirdistributable surplus to the investor by way of dividend distribution. Such schemesusually declare quarterly dividends and are suitable for conservative investors whohave medium to long term investment horizon and are looking for regular incomethrough dividend or steady capital appreciation. HDFC Income Fund, HDFC ShortTerm Plan and HDFC Fixed Investment Plans are examples of bond schemes.Liquid Income SchemesSimilar to the Income scheme but with a shorter maturity than Income schemes.An example of this scheme is the HDFC Liquid Fund.Money Market SchemesThese schemes invest in short term instruments such as commercial paper (“CP”),certificates of deposit (“CD”), treasury bills (“T-Bill”) and overnight money(“Call”). The schemes are the least volatile of all the types of schemes because oftheir investments in money market instrument with short-term maturities. Theseschemes have become popular with institutional investors and high networthindividuals having short-term surplus funds.Gilt FundsThis scheme primarily invests in Government Debt. Hence the investor usuallydoes not have to worry about credit risk since Government Debt is generally creditrisk free. HDFC Gilt Fund is an example of such a scheme
Hybrid SchemesThese schemes are commonly known as balanced schemes. These schemes investin both equities as well as debt. By investing in a mix of this nature, balancedschemes seek to attain the objective of income and moderate capital appreciationand are ideal for investors with a conservative, long-term orientation. HDFCBalanced Fund and HDFC Children‟s Gift Fund are examples of hybrid schemes. ConstitutionSchemes can be classified as Closed-ended or Open-ended depending uponwhether they give the investor the option to redeem at any time (open-ended) orwhether the investor has to wait till maturity of the schemeOpen ended SchemesThe units offered by these schemes are available for sale and repurchase on anybusiness day at NAV based prices. Hence, the unit capital of the schemes keepschanging each day. Such schemes thus offer very high liquidity to investors andare becoming increasingly popular in India. Please note that an open-ended fund isNOT obliged to keep selling/issuing new units at all times, and may stop issuingfurther subscription to new investors. On the other hand, an open-ended fund rarelydenies to its investor the facility to redeem existing units.
Closed-ended schemesThe unit capital of a close-ended product is fixed as it makes a one-time sale offixed number of units. These schemes are launched with an initial public offer(IPO) with a stated maturity period after which the units are fully redeemed atNAV linked prices. In the interim, investors can buy or sell units on the stockexchanges where they are listed. Unlike open-ended schemes, the unit capital inclosed-ended schemes usually remains unchanged. After an initial closed period,the scheme may offer direct repurchase facility to the investors. Closed-endedschemes are usually more illiquid as compared to open-ended schemes and hencetrade at a discount to the NAV. This discount tends towards the NAV closer to thematurity date of the scheme.Interval SchemesThese schemes combine the features of open-ended and closed-ended schemes.They may be traded on the stock exchange or may be open for sale or redemptionduring pre-determined intervals at NAV based prices.
RISKThe Risk-Return Trade-offThe most important relationship to understand is the risk-return trade-off. Higherthe risk greater the returns/loss and lower the risk lesser the returns/loss. Hence it isupto you, the investor to decide how much risk you are willing to take. In order todo this you must first be aware of the different types of risks involved with yourinvestment decision
Market RiskSometimes prices and yields of all securities rise and fall. Broad outside influencesaffecting the market in general lead to this. This is true, may it be big corporationsor smaller mid-sized companies. This is known as Market Risk. A SystematicInvestment Plan (“SIP”) that works on the concept of Rupee Cost Averaging(“RCA”) might help mitigate this risk.Credit RiskThe debt servicing ability (may it be interest payments or repayment of principal)of a company through its cash flows determines the Credit Risk faced by you. Thiscredit risk is measured by independent rating agencies like CRISIL who ratecompanies and their paper. A „AAA‟ rating is considered the safest whereas a „D‟rating is considered poor credit quality. A well-diversified portfolio might helpmitigate this risk.Inflation RiskThings you hear people talk about:“Rs. 100 today is worth more than Rs. 100 tomorrow.”“Remember the time when a bus ride coated 50 paise?”“Mehangai Ka Jamana Hai.”The root cause, Inflation. Inflation is the loss of purchasing power over time. A lotof times people make conservative investment decisions to protect their capital butend up with a sum of money that can buy less than what the principal could at thetime of the investment. This happens when inflation grows faster than the return onyour investment.
Interest Rate RiskIn a free market economy interest rates are difficult if not impossible to predict.Changes in interest rates affect the prices of bonds as well as equities. If interestrates rise the prices of bonds fall and vice versa. Equity might be negativelyaffected as well in a rising interest rate environment. A well-diversified portfoliomight help mitigate this risk.Political/Government Policy RiskChanges in government policy and political decision can change the investmentenvironment. They can create a favorable environment for investment or vice versaLiquidity RiskLiquidity risk arises when it becomes difficult to sell the securities that one haspurchased. Liquidity Risk can be partly mitigated by diversification, staggering ofmaturities as well as internal risk controls that lean towards purchase of liquidsecurities. DiversificationThe nuclear weapon in your arsenal for your fight against Risk. It simply meansthat you must spread your investment across different securities (stocks, bonds,money market instruments, real estate, fixed deposits etc.) and different sectors(auto, textile, information technology etc.). This kind of a diversification may addto the stability of your returns, for example during one period of time equitiesmight underperform but bonds and money market instruments might do well
enough to offset the effect of a slump in the equity markets. Similarly theinformation technology sector might be faring poorly but the auto and textilesectors might do well and may protect you principal investment as well as help youmeet your return objectives Benefits of Investing in Mutual FundsProfessional ManagementMutual Funds provide the services of experienced and skilled professionals,backed by a dedicated investment research team that analyses the performance andprospects of companies and selects suitable investments to achieve the objectivesof the scheme.DiversificationMutual Funds invest in a number of companies across a broad cross-section ofindustries and sectors. This diversification reduces the risk because seldom do allstocks decline at the same time and in the same proportion. You achieve thisdiversification through a Mutual Fund with far less money than you can do on yourown.Convenient AdministrationInvesting in a Mutual Fund reduces paperwork and helps you avoid manyproblems such as bad deliveries, delayed payments and follow up with brokers andcompanies. Mutual Funds save your time and make investing easy and convenient.
Return PotentialOver a medium to long-term, Mutual Funds have the potential to provide a higherreturn as they invest in a diversified basket of selected securities.Low CostsMutual Funds are a relatively less expensive way to invest compared to directlyinvesting in the capital markets because the benefits of scale in brokerage,custodial and other fees translate into lower costs for investors.LiquidityIn open-end schemes, the investor gets the money back promptly at net asset valuerelated prices from the Mutual Fund. In closed-end schemes, the units can be soldon a stock exchange at the prevailing market price or the investor can avail of thefacility of direct repurchase at NAV related prices by the Mutual Fund.Transparencyyou get regular information on the value of your investment in addition todisclosure on the specific investments made by your scheme, the proportioninvested in each class of assets and the fund managers investment strategy andoutlook.FlexibilityThrough features such as regular investment plans, regular withdrawal plans and
dividend reinvestment plans, you can systematically invest or withdraw fundsaccording to your needs and convenience.AffordabilityInvestors individually may lack sufficient funds to invest in high-grade stocks. Amutual fund because of its large corpus allows even a small investor to take thebenefit of its investment strategy. Choice of SchemesMutual Funds offer a family of schemes to suit your varying needs overa lifetime.Well RegulatedAll Mutual Funds are registered with SEBI and they function within the provisionsof strict regulations designed to protect the interests of investors. The operations ofMutual Funds are regularly monitored by SEBI.Drawbacks of Mutual Funds No Guarantees:No investment is risk free. If the entire stock market declines in value, the value of mutual fund shares will go down as well, no matter how balanced the portfolio. Investors encounter fewer risks when
they invest in mutual funds than when they buy and sell stocks on their own.However, anyone who invests through a mutual fund runs the risk of losingmoney.Fees and commissions:All funds charge administrative fees to covertheir day-to-day expenses. Some funds also charge sales commissions or"loads" to compensate brokers, financial consultants, or financial planners.Even if you dont use a broker or other financial adviser, you will pay a salescommission if you buy shares in a Load Fund.Taxes:During a typical year, most actively managed mutual funds sellanywhere from 20 to 70 percent of the securities in their portfolios. If yourfund makes a profit on its sales, you will pay taxes on the income youreceive, even if you reinvest the money you made.Management Risk: When you invest in a mutual fund, you depend onthe funds manager to make the right decisions regarding the funds portfolio.If the manager does not perform as well as you had hoped, you might notmake as much money on your investment as you expected. Of course, if youinvest in Index Funds, you forego management risk, because these funds donot employ managers

Techniques Used 1) ReturnReturn on a typical investment consists of two components. The basic is theperiodic cash receipts (or income) on the investment, either in the form of interestor dividends. The second component is the change in the price of the assets-commonly called the capital gain or loss. This element of return is the differencebetween the purchase price and the price at which the assets can be or is sold;therefore, it can be again or a loss.The return has been calculated as under NAVt – NAVt-1Portfolio return: Rit =--------------------------------- NAV t-1Where Rit is the difference between Net Asset Values for two consecutive daysdivided by the NAV of the preceding day.
M.indt – M.indt-1Market return: Rmt =-------------------------------- M.indt-1Where Rmt is the difference between market indices of two consecutive day‟sdividend by the market index for the preceding day 2) Risk Risk is neither good nor bad. Risk in holding securities is generally associatedwith the possibility that realized returns will be less than expected returns. Thedifference between the required rate of returns on mutual fund investment and therisk free return is the risk premium. Risk can be measured in terms of Beta &standard deviations. Standard deviationIt is used to measure the variation in individual returns from the average expectedreturns over a certain period. Standard deviation is used in the concept of risk of aportfolio of investments. Higher standard deviation means a greater fluctuation inexpected return.Standard deviation (SD) =/ varWhere Var = varianceVar= p (r-E(r)) 2 i
BetaBeta measures the systematic risk and shows how prices of securities respond tothe market forces. It is calculated by relating the return on a security with return forthe market. By convention, market will have beta 1.0.Mutual fund is said to bevolatile, more volatile or less volatile. If beta is grater than 1 the stock is said to beriskier than market. If beta is less than 1,the indication is that stock is less risky incomparison to market. If beta is zero then the risk is the same as that of the market.Negative beta is rare. = n xy-( x)( y) n x2-( x) 2 Where, n= number of days X =rolling returns of the NSE index Y= rolling returns of the schemes 3) Sharpe indexSharpe index measures risk premium of a portfolio, relative to the total amount ofrisk in the portfolio. Sharpe index summarizes the risk and return of a portfolio in asingle measure that categorizes the performance of funds on the risk- adjusted
basis. The larger the Sharpe‟s index the portfolio over performs the market andvise versa.Where,St = Sharpe‟s indexRp= portfolio returnRf= Risk free rate of return (7.59%)SD= Standard Deviation of the port folio St= RP-Rf 4) Treynor’s IndexTreynor‟s model is on the concept of the characteristics straight line. Thecharacteristics line has drawn a relationship between the market return and aspecific portfolio without taking into consideration any direct adjustment for risk.It is also known as reward to volatility ratio and is defined as:The formula for Treynor‟s Index is: Portfolio avg return (Rp) – risk-free rate of interest (Rf)
Treynor index (Tn) = --------------------------------------------------------------------- Beta coefficient of portfolio (Bp) Rp -Rf Tn = ------------------------- BpIt measures portfolio risk in terms of beta, which is weighted average of individualsecurity beta. The ratio is investors, for who the fund represents only a fraction oftheir total assets. The higher the ratio better is the performance.Criteria 2&3 Equity diversified schemesThere is lot of variety schemes offered by AMCs.

No primary Data was not associated with the project Collecting historical NAV is very difficult Selection of schemes for study is very difficult because lot of verities of schemes.
ConclusionThe above evaluation according to Sharpe index the HDFC equity scheme fallsunder 1st rank & according to traynor HDFC long term advantage fund falls under1st rank but here only diff was 2.11 as compare reliance.I would like to conclude that HDFC schems are performing well as compare toother competitors even time factor it was started late but its returns is high ascompared to competitor.As HDFC mutual fund has to concentrate more on marketing their scheme, as itsschemes are performing well, and it should maintain its rank 1 position.
