Open – Ended Schemes.Projectsformba.blogspot.com 20
  • 21. Projectsformba.blogspot.com 1.2. Close – Ended Schemes. 1.3. Interval Schemes.2. BY INVESTMENT OBJECTIVE 2.1. Growth Schemes. 2.2. Income Schemes. 2.3. Balanced Schemes.3. OTHER SCHEMES 3.1. Tax Saving Schemes. 3.2. Special Schemes. 3.3. Index Schemes. 3.4. Sector Specific Schemes.1.1 OPEN – ENDED SCHEMESThe units offered by these schemes are available for sale and repurchase on any business day atNAV based prices. Hence, the unit capital of the schemes keeps changing each day. Suchschemes thus offer very high liquidity to investors and are becoming increasingly popular inIndia. Please note that an open-ended fund is NOT obliged to keep selling/issuing new units at alltimes, and may stop issuing further subscription to new investors. On the other hand, an open-ended fund rarely denies to its investor the facility to redeem existing units.1.2 CLOSED – ENDED SCHEMESThe unit capital of a close-ended product is fixed as it makes a one-time sale of fixed number ofunits. These schemes are launched with an initial public offer (IPO) with a stated maturity periodafter which the units are fully redeemed at NAV linked prices. In the interim, investors can buyor sell units on the stock exchanges where they are listed. Unlike open-ended schemes, the unitcapital in closed-ended schemes usually remains unchanged. After an initial closed period, thescheme may offer direct repurchase facility to the investors. Closed-ended schemes are usuallymore illiquid as compared to open-ended schemes and hence trade at a discount to the NAV. Thisdiscount tends towards the NAV closer to the maturity date of the scheme.1.3 INTERVAL SCHEMESProjectsformba.blogspot.com 21
  • 22. Projectsformba.blogspot.comThese schemes combine the features of open-ended and closed-ended schemes. They may betraded on the stock exchange or may be open for sale or redemption during pre-determinedintervals at NAV based prices.2.1 GROWTH SCHEMESThese schemes, also commonly called Equity Schemes, seek to invest a majority of their funds inequities and a small portion in money market instruments. Such schemes have the potential todeliver superior returns over the long term. However, because they invest in equities, theseschemes are exposed to fluctuations in value especially in the short term.2.2 INCOME SCHEMESThese schemes, also commonly called Debt Schemes, invest in debt securities such as corporatebonds, debentures and government securities. The prices of these schemes tend to be more stablecompared with equity schemes and most of the returns to the investors are generated throughdividends or steady capital appreciation. These schemes are ideal for conservative investors orthose not in a position to take higher equity risks, such as retired individuals. However, ascompared to the money market schemes they do have a higher price fluctuation risk andcompared to a Gilt fund they have a higher credit risk.2.3 BALANCED SCHEMESThese schemes are commonly known as Hybrid schemes. These schemes invest in both equitiesas well as debt. By investing in a mix of this nature, balanced schemes seek to attain the objectiveof income and moderate capital appreciation and are ideal for investors with a conservative, long-term orientation.3.1 TAX SAVING SCHEMESInvestors are being encouraged to invest in equity markets through Equity Linked SavingsScheme (“ELSS”) by offering them a tax rebate. Units purchased cannot be assigned /transferred/ pledged / redeemed / switched – out until completion of 3 years from the date ofallotment 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.Projectsformba.blogspot.com 22

  • 28. Projectsformba.blogspot.com HOW TO REDUCE RISK WHILE INVESTING:  Any kind of investment we make is subject to risk. In fact we get return on our investment purely and solely because at the very beginning we take the risk of parting with our funds, for getting higher value back at a later date. Partition itself is a risk.  Well known economist and Nobel Prize recipient William Sharpe tried to segregate the total risk faced in any kind of investment into two parts - systematic (Systemic) risk and unsystematic (Unsystemic) risk.  Systematic risk is that risk which exists in the system. Some of the biggest examples of systematic risk are inflation, recession, war, political situation etc.  Inflation erodes returns generated from all investments e.g. If return from fixed deposit is 8 per cent and if inflation is 6 per cent then real rate of return from fixed deposit is reduced by 6 per cent.  Similarly if returns generated from equity market is 18 per cent and inflation is still 6 per cent then equity returns will be lesser by the rate of inflation. Since inflation exists in the system there is no way one can stay away from the risk of inflation.  Economic cycles, war and political situations have effects on all forms of investments. Also these exist in the system and there is no way to stay away from them. It is like learning to walk.  Anyone who wants to learn to walk has to first fall; you cannot learn to walk without falling. Similarly anyone who wants to invest has to first face systematic risk; there can never make any kind of investment without systematic risk.Projectsformba.blogspot.com28
  • 29. Projectsformba.blogspot.com  Another form of risk is unsystematic risk. This risk does not exist in the system and hence is not applicable to all forms of investment. Unsystematic risk is associated with particular form of investment.  Suppose we invest in stock market and the market falls, then only our investment in equity gets affected OR if we have placed a fixed deposit in particular bank and bank goes bankrupt, than we only lose money placed in that bank.  While there is no way to keep away from risk, we can always reduce the impact of risk. Diversification helps in reducing the impact of unsystematic risk. If our investment is distributed across various asset classes the impact of unsystematic risk is reduced.  If we have placed fixed deposit in several banks, then even if one of the banks goes bankrupt our entire fixed deposit investment is not lost.  Similarly if our equity investment is in Tata Motors, HLL, Infosys, adverse news about Infosys will only impact investment in Infosys, all other stocks will not have any impact.  To reduce the impact of systematic risk, we should invest regularly. By investing regularly we average out the impact of risk.  Mutual fund, as an investment vehicle gives us benefit of both diversification and averaging.  Portfolio of mutual funds consists of multiple securities and hence adverse news about single security will have nominal impact on overall portfolio.  By systematically investing in mutual fund we get benefit of rupee cost averaging.  Mutual fund as an investment vehicle helps reduce, both, systematic as well as unsystematic risk.Projectsformba.blogspot.com29

  • 31. Projectsformba.blogspot.com ADVANTAGES OF MUTUAL FUNDS  Professional Management. The major advantage of investing in a mutual fund is that you get a professional money manager to manage your investments for a small fee. You can leave the investment decisions to him and only have to monitor the performance of the fund at regular intervals.  Diversification. Considered the essential tool in risk management, mutual funds make it possible for even small investors to diversify their portfolio. A mutual fund can effectively diversify its portfolio because of the large corpus. However, a small investor cannot have a well-diversified portfolio because it calls for large investment. For example, a modest portfolio of 10 bluechip stocks calls for a few a few thousands.  Convenient Administration.Projectsformba.blogspot.com31
  • 32. Projectsformba.blogspot.com Mutual funds offer tailor-made solutions like systematic investment plans and systematic withdrawal plans to investors, which is very convenient to investors. Investors also do not have to worry about investment decisions, they do not have to deal with brokerage or depository, etc. for buying or selling of securities. Mutual funds also offer specialized schemes like retirement plans, children’s plans, industry specific schemes, etc. to suit personal preference of investors. These schemes also help small investors with asset allocation of their corpus. It also saves a lot of paper work.  Costs Effectiveness A small investor will find that the mutual fund route is a cost-effective method (the AMC fee is normally 2.5%) and it also saves a lot of transaction cost as mutual funds get concession from brokerages. Also, the investor gets the service of a financial professional for a very small fee. If he were to seek a financial advisors help directly, he will end up paying significantly more for investment advice. Also, he will need to have a sizeable corpus to offer for investment management to be eligible for an investment adviser’s services.  Liquidity. You can liquidate your investments within 3 to 5 working days (mutual funds dispatch redemption cheques speedily and also offer direct credit facility into your bank account i.e. Electronic Clearing Services).  Transparency. Mutual funds offer daily NAVs of schemes, which help you to monitor your investments on a regular basis. They also send quarterly newsletters, which give details of the portfolio, performance of schemes against various benchmarks, etc. They are also well regulated and Sebi monitors their actions closely.  Tax benefits. You do not have to pay any taxes on dividends issued by mutual funds. You also have the advantage of capital gains taxation. Tax-saving schemes and pension schemes give you the added advantage of benefits under section 88.  Affordability Mutual funds allow you to invest small sums. For instance, if you want to buy a portfolio of blue chips of modest size, you should at least have a few lakhsProjectsformba.blogspot.com32
  • 33. Projectsformba.blogspot.com of rupees. A mutual fund gives you the same portfolio for meager investment of Rs.1,000-5,000. A mutual fund can do that because it collects money from many people and it has a large corpus. DISADVANTAGES OF MUTUAL FUNDS  Professional Management- Did you notice how we qualified the advantage of professional management with the word "theoretically"? Many investors debate over whether or not the so-called professionals are any better than you or I at picking stocks. Management is by no means infallible, and, even if the fund loses money, the manager still takes his/her cut. Well talk about this in detail in a later section.  Costs – Mutual funds dont exist solely to make your life easier--all funds are in it for a profit. The Mutual fund industry is masterful at burying costs under layers of jargon. These costs are so complicated that in this tutorial we have devoted an entire section to the subject.  Dilution – Its possible to have too much diversification (this is explained in our article entitled "Are You Over-Diversified?"). Because funds have small holdings in so many different companies, high returns from a few investments often dont make much difference on the overall return. Dilution is also the result of a successful fund getting too big. When money pours into funds that have had strong success, the manager often has trouble finding a good investment for all the new money.  Taxes – When making decisions about your money, fund managers dont consider your personal tax situation. For example, when a fund manager sells a security, a capital- gain tax is triggered, which affects how profitable the individual is from the sale. It might have been more advantageous for the individual to defer the capital gains liability.  Equity funds- if selected in the right manner and in the right proportion, have the ability to play an important role in achieving most long-term objectives of investors in different segments. While the selection process becomes much easier if you get advice from professionals, it is equally important to know certain aspects of equity investing yourself to do justice to your hard earned money.Projectsformba.blogspot.com33

  • 89. Projectsformba.blogspot.com SUGESSIONSAfter seeing the whole Data analysis and findings my suggestions for the industry are shownas below.  The company should give the knowledge regarding Mutual Fund through various sources like more advertisement, TV programmes etc. about what it is? How it works? What is its benefit for us with its advertisement or in programmes. Because many people have heard about it but don’t know what it is?  The company should also attract the low Income people by showing them the benefits of the liquidity funds for the short Term to attract them.  As per survey Bank creates higher awareness so the Mutual Fund companies should more collaborate with the Banks.  The company should also attract the customer through different schemes who having knowledge about the Mutual Funds but not investing in Mutual Funds.  The company should also make aware the people about the AMFI exam and should motivate them to be financial adviser to get more business.  The company should give information regarding Tax benefit to Invest into Mutual Fund.  The company should organize seminar to give information about Mutual Fund and should distribute brochures having detail of schemes of Mutual Fund.Projectsformba.blogspot.com89
  • 90. Projectsformba.blogspot.com LIMITATION OF THE RESEARCH  This research reflects on individual customer in Ahemdabad only. So findings and suggestions given on the basis of this research cannot be extrapolated to the entire population.  Sample size is 100 which is very small that is not enough to study the awareness of consumers of the country.  Respondents are not sincere and care full to fill up the questionnaire so we cannot find right solution.  As sampling technique is convenient sampling so it may result in personal bias. So perfect result cannot be achieved.  The study might also consist of the respondents’ bias answer.  It take much time to go in different areas and fill up questionnaire so the timings are also limited to make the Project.  To create hypothesis and make cross tabulation is little bit confusing technique so it may be a limitation.  In India people are not much care full and educated regarding Investment plan so to do this type of research is little hard.Projectsformba.blogspot.com90
  • 91. Projectsformba.blogspot.com CONCLUSION After making the whole report I am concluding that this project measures the awarenessof Mutual Funds and its service.

  • 97. Projectsformba.blogspot.com DIFFERENT TERMINOLOGY AMC The AMC is the corporate entity, which markets and manager and manages a mutual fund scheme and in return receives a management fee from the fund corpus. SEBI specifies that an AMC must be separate entity the trust that manages it. NAV It is the value of unit of a Mutual Fund scheme and represents its true worth. NAV is arrived at by dividing total value of all investment made under the scheme by number of units of the scheme. NAV is critical yardstick of the funds performance. UNITS Units in a mutual fund scheme are similar to shares of a joint company. These are always in denominations of Rs. 10 each the sum total of all the units constitutes corpus of mutual fund. SPONSORS Sponsor of a mutual fund are those who establish the mutual fund trust and the AMC they constitute the shareholders of the AMC and receive dividends on profits made by the AMC. SEBI rules stipulate that mutual fund trust as well as the AMC must maintain an arms length relationship with the sponsors to avoid any conflict to interests, which may affect the unit holders. INCOME FUND These Funds invest largely in fixed income securities like bonds and debentures. Such funds earn returns more regularly than a growth fund but level of returns over longer periods normally lag behind those offered by growth funds while returns in such funds may be regular, their scale may fluctuate depending upon the prevalent interest rates and credit quality of the debt securities.Projectsformba.blogspot.com97
  • 98. Projectsformba.blogspot.com GROWTH FUNDS Growth funds predominantly invest in stock market securities and carry risks larger than income funds. Since stock markets travel through a natural cycle of boom and bursts one should normally stay invested inequity funds for a longer times to earn higher returns. Equity funds may earn higher but they also carry larger risks. For risk taking investor equity are best suited. BALANCED FUNDS A balanced fund is the mixture of income fund and growth fund invested partly in equity to achieve a trade-of between risk and return. CLOSE ENDED In a close-ended fund an investor is allowed to subscribe only during the period of the initial offer. Close-ended funds mature after a specified period. OPEN ENDED FUNDS Those funds in which investor can invest & withdraw whenever they wish, after the closing of initial offer. Withdrawals are allowed at NAV minus a back end load. LOCK IN PERIOD Time period during which investor can neither redeem nor they transfer their holdings to others. Lock in period is imposed to allow fund manager to deploy money for an adequate period of time to earn a reasonable return premature withdrawals may destabilize the fund & are not beneficial to the interests of investors. MANAGEMENT FEES An AMC that mangers & markets a mutual fund scheme is entitled to a management fee@ 1% to 25% of the total funds managed, it could be charged to the scheme irrespective of the performance of the scheme. REDEMPTION Disbursement of unit capital on the maturity of that particular scheme to all its existing unit holders.Projectsformba.blogspot.com98
  • 99. Projectsformba.blogspot.com MARKET PRICE The price at which units of mutual funds are quoted in stock exchange where they are listed. REGISTRAR Organization appointed by an AMC to the schemes it is registered, monitored, and regulated by SEBI, it provides required services like system capabilities back up, accepts and processes investors applications in informs AMC about amounts received/ disbursed for subscription/ purchase/ redemption it also handles communications with investors, perform data entry services and dispatches account statements. CUSTODAIN Banking organization that keeps in safe custody all the securities & other instruments belonging to the fund to insure smooth inflow & outflow of securities. It is also approved regulated and registered with SEBI. EXIT LOAD Value of deduction from NAV on the date when one choose to withdraw from a fund, load is imposed because withdrawals carry transaction cost to AMC it can not be more than 6% of NAV of corpus as prescribed by SEBI many schemes offer redemption facility without exit load. ENTRY LOAD Charge paid by unit holder when he invests an amount in the scheme. Mutual funds incur many expenses during an issue, which are charged to the scheme. Such load is called entry load. LIQUIDITY Ability of investors to change its unit into cash within minimum time as and when he needs money.Projectsformba.blogspot.com99
  • 100. Projectsformba.blogspot.com TRANSPARENCY Basic feature of mutual funds is transparency, their functioning is very efficient, well monitored & transparent working of AMC is regulated by SEBI it is audited weekly, it has to work under strict guidelines issued by SEBI, and its NAV is calculated and published daily so that there is no chance of any default in the working of Mutual Funds.Projectsformba.blogspot.com100
