Mutual Funds and Exchange Traded funds in Turkey

  1. 1. Prof: Dr : Semih Büker Prepared by: Abdulkadir Tifow Dept: Finansman
  2. 2. Mutual Funds (Yatırım Fonları) Definition of MF: A mutual fund is an investment company that pools money from many investors and invests the money in stocks, bonds, short-term money-market instruments, other securities or assets, or some combination of these investments. The combined holdings the mutual fund owns are known as its portfolio. Each share represents an investor's proportionate ownership of the fund's holdings and the income those holdings generate.
  3. 3. Cycle of Mutual Fund
  4. 4. Advantages of Mutual Funds (Yatırım Fonların Avantajları)  Professional Management (Profesyonel Yönetim) Picking your own stocks and bonds to put in your portfolio and beating your benchmarks is difficult and time consuming. Hiring a mutual fund to make those decisions for you can be beneficial and save time.  Diversification (Çeşitlilik) Diversification is an investing strategy that can be neatly summed up as "Don't put all your eggs in one basket." Spreading your investments across a wide range of companies and industry sectors can help lower your risk if a company or sector fails. Some investors find it easier to achieve diversification through ownership of mutual funds rather than through ownership of individual stocks or bonds.  Liquidity (Nakde Çevirebilme) Money invested in mutual funds is generally liquid. You can usually sell your shares and collect money from open-ended funds (funds that can create and redeem shares on demand), usually within two business days.
  5. 5. Continue  Flexibility: (fleksibilite) Owning individual stocks and bonds does not allow for much flexibility in terms of liquidity, or the ability to access your money. You cannot write checks on individual stocks and bonds. However, many mutual funds allow for more flexibility by allowing you to write checks on your account.  Economies of Scale (Büyük Ölçekli Yatırım Avantajı) Because a mutual fund buys and sells large amounts of securities at a time, its transaction costs are lower than what an individual would pay for securities transactions.  Simplicity: You can begin buying units or shares with a relatively small amount of money (e.g., $500 for the initial purchase). Some mutual funds also permits you to buy more units on a regular basis with even smaller installments (e.g., $50 per month).  Service Mutual funds generally offer service to answer questions, help you open accounts, purchase and sell funds, and to transfer funds as well.
  6. 6. Types of Mutual Funds
  7. 7. Types of mutual funds By structure  1) Open-Ended funds: is a collective investment schemes which can issue and redeem shares at any time. In simple terms, an open-end mutual fund is when a company aggregates money from many investors and invests the money in stocks, bonds, short-term moneymarket instruments or other securities. Investors purchase mutual fund shares directly from the fund itself at a price that is determined by the fund's per-share net asset value (NAV) plus any shareholder fees that the fund imposes at purchase (such as sales loads). (For NAV see the Next Slide) Mutual fund shares are "redeemable": when the holder of the mutual fund shares wants to sell those shares, he or she sells them back to the fund (or to a broker acting for the fund) at their approximate NAV minus any fees the fund imposes at that time (such as deferred sales loads or redemption fees). Open-end fund shares cannot be bought or sold in secondary markets, such as the New York Stock Exchange or the Nasdaq.
  8. 8. Continue….  Net Asset Value (NAV) Net Aktif Değer A mutual fund's price per share in both cases (. It is a price at which investors buy fund shares from a fund company and sell them to a fund company).  NAV = Market value of assets of scheme minus its liabilities.  Price Per unit NAV = Net Asset Value No. of Units Outstanding on Valuation date For example, if a fund has assets of $50 million and liabilities of $10 million, it would have a NAV of $40 million. This number is important to investors, because it is from NAV that the price per unit of a fund is calculated. By dividing the NAV of a fund by the number of outstanding units, you are left with the price per unit. In our example, if the fund had 4 million shares outstanding, the price-per-share value would be $40 million divided by 4 million, which equals $10. 
  9. 9. Continue….  2) Closed-Ended Funds: A "closed-end fund" is also legally known as a "closed-end company". It is an investment company that sells a fixed number of shares at a one-time initial public offering. Shares are not continuously offered for sale; after the public offering, the shares typically can be bought and sold only on a formal exchange such as the New York Stock Exchange or the Nasdaq.  Once closed-end fund shares begin to trade, their prices are determined by supply and demand and not by net-asset value (NAV); therefore, the market price may be greater or less than the shares' NAV.  Generally, a closed-end fund is not required to buy its shares back from investors upon request. However, some closed-end funds, commonly referred to as interval funds, offer to repurchase their shares at specified intervals.
  10. 10. Continue……  3) Interval schemes: combine the benefits of open end and closed end schemes. These essentially are closed end funds , but become open ended at pre specified intervals by opening for sale and repurchase on a regular basis at intervals on pre-specified dates. Investors can buy or sell the units of these schemes at an interval which is specified in the schemes document. For example, in case of a Monthly Interval Fund, investors can buy or sell the units every month on the specified dates. The units can not be bought or sold on other dates. This means the scheme is open end only on the specified transaction date and is like a closed end fund on other dates.
  11. 11. Types of Funds By Investment Objectivities  1) Money Market Mutual Funds:  MMMF are funds which invest the majority of their assets in short-term liquid financial instruments such as commercial paper and government treasury bills  Their goal is to obtain a higher return, after fees and expenses, than traditional bank savings or checking accounts.
  12. 12. Continue…..  2) Bond fund or debt fund is a fund that invests in bonds, or other debt securities. Bond funds can be contrasted with stock funds and money funds. Bond funds typically pay periodic dividends that include interest payments on the fund's underlying securities plus periodic realized capital appreciation. Bond funds typically pay higher dividends than CDs and money market accounts. Most bond funds pay out dividends more frequently than individual bonds.  Bond Fund Types:  Government: Primarily invest in bonds issued by the U.S. Department of Treasury as well as various federal agencies. Government bonds are generally taxable.  Municipal: Primarily invest in municipal bonds issued by state and local governments and their agencies to fund projects such as schools, streets, highways, hospitals, bridges, and airports. Municipal bonds can be insured or non-insured securities. Income generated from municipal bonds may be tax free at both the federal and state level (consult the funds prospectus).  Corporate: Primarily invest in bonds issued by corporations to help fund business activities. Income from corporate bonds is taxable. Bond fund shares are not guaranteed and will fluctuate with market conditions and interest rates and include a greater risk to principal than Certificates of Deposit. Shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost.
  13. 13. Continue…………  3) Stock Funds:  Stock mutual funds are funds which invest a majority of their assets in common stocks of listed companies These funds aim to grow faster than money market or fixed income funds, so there is usually a higher risk that you could lose money.  Stock Fund Types A) Large Cap: Primarily invests in "Blue-chip" companies - large, wellknown industrials, utilities, technology, and financial services companies with large market capitalization. Large cap stocks are perceived to be less risky than smaller capitalized companies.  B) Mid Cap: Primarily invests in companies whose market capitalization is smaller than large caps but larger than small caps. Mid caps are generally considered more risky than large cap stocks but have a higher return expectation.
  14. 14. Continue……….  C) Small Cap: Primarily invests in emerging companies, thought to have potential for future growth and profit. Small caps are generally considered the riskiest stocks compared to larger capitalized firms but carry the expectation of higher returns. Small cap funds are subject to greater volatility than those in other asset categories.  D) International: Primarily invests in stocks traded on foreign exchanges. International funds are subject to additional risks such as currency fluctuation, political instability and the potential for illiquid markets.
  15. 15. Continue…..  4)Balanced Funds (Hybrid Funds): A mutual fund that buys a combination of common stock, preferred stock, bonds, and short-term bonds, to provide both income and capital appreciation while avoiding excessive risk.  The purpose of balanced funds (hybrid funds) is to provide investors with a single mutual fund that combines both growth and income objectives, by investing in both stocks (for growth) and bonds (for income). A well-managed balanced fund has the best chance at achieving that because when the stock market falls, the bonds tend to hold their value better, and when the stock market rises, bonds yields are typically lower.
  16. 16. Special Funds  1) Index Funds Index Funds replicate the portfolio of a particular index such as the BSE Sensitive index, S&P NSE 50 index (Nifty), etc. These schemes invest in the securities in the same weightage comprising of an index. NAVs of such schemes would rise or fall in accordance with the rise or fall in the index, though not exactly by the same percentage due to some factors known in technical terms as a "tracking error". Necessary disclosures in this regard are made in the offer document of the mutual fund scheme.  2) Sector: Primarily invests in specific industry sectors such as technology, financials, health, or energy. Since sector funds focus their investments on companies involved in a specific industry sector, the funds may involve a greater degree of risk that an investment in other mutual funds with greater diversification.
  17. 17. Factors to consider while choosing a Mutual Fund  Expense Ratio  Risk  Past Performance
  18. 18. How Funds Can Earn Money for You  You can earn money from your investment in three ways:  Dividend Payments — A fund may earn income in the form of dividends and interest on the securities in its portfolio. The fund then pays its shareholders nearly all of the income (minus disclosed expenses) it has earned in the form of dividends.  Capital Gains Distributions — The price of the securities a fund owns may increase. When a fund sells a security that has increased in price, the fund has a capital gain. At the end of the year, most funds distribute these capital gains (minus any capital losses) to investors.  Increased NAV — If the market value of a fund's portfolio increases after deduction of expenses and liabilities, then the value (NAV) of the fund and its shares increases. The higher NAV reflects the higher value of your investment.  With respect to dividend payments and capital gains distributions, funds usually will give you a choice: the fund can send you a check or other form of payment, or you can have your dividends or distributions reinvested in the fund to buy more shares (often without paying an additional sales load)

  20. 20. Exchanged-Traded-Funds (ETFs) Borsa Yatırım Fonları  An ETF is a security that tracks an index and represents a basket of stocks like an index fund, but trades like a stock on an exchange, with daily price fluctuations. The most widely known ETFs are SPDR (Spider), which tracks the S&P 500 index, and QQQ, which tracks the Nasdaq-100 Index .
  21. 21. Continue……………..  The Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) project was initiated by Finansportfoy in 2003 in response to a number of factors:  Turkey required new investment tools to increase diversity for its investors.  Extensive market analysis undertaken by Finansportfoy indicated that ETFs would meet many of the markets needs.  Finansportfoy partnered with other globally recognized institutions to deliver a world class product.  In 2005 Finansportfoy launched Turkey’s first ETF Dow Jones Istanbul 20 Type A Exchange Traded Fund (DJIST).
  22. 22. Creation and Redemption of ETF
  23. 23. Continue………………..  While ETF trading occurs on an exchange like stocks, the process by which their shares are created is significantly different. Unless a company decides to issue more shares, the supply of shares of an individual stock trading in the marketplace is finite. When demand increases for shares of an ETF, however, Authorized Participants (APs) have the ability to create additional shares on demand.  Through an "in kind" transfer mechanism, APs create ETF units in the primary market by delivering a basket of securities to the fund equal to the current holdings of the ETF. In return, they receive a large block of ETF shares (typically 50,000), which are then available for trading in the secondary market. This ETF creation and redemption process helps keep ETF supply and demand in continual balance and provides a "hidden" layer of liquidity not evident by looking at trading volumes alone.  This process also works in reverse. If an investor wants to sell a large block of shares of an ETF, even if there seems to be limited liquidity in the secondary market, APs can readily redeem a block of ETF shares by gathering enough shares of the ETF to form a creation unit and then exchanging the creation unit for the underlying securities.
