There are few key pointers:
Pool of money, invested by number of investors:
It means, this is a product, wherein various investor invest their money in one basket and then the manager of
the fund invest in different investment products.
What is Mutual Fund?
To share a common financial goal:
The main agenda of investment for any one is to earn profit/returns. As a renowned statement once

Diversification: (DON’T PUT ALL EGGS IN ONE BASKET)
Mutual Fund, is a pool of investment, wherein many investor invest their money, and this money is
invested in various number of shares, bonds etc. which reduces the risk of capital for an investor.
This is a beauty of a mutual fund, with a small amount of
an investor get invested various sectors.
If one investor invested Rs. 10,000 in Kingfisher in 2012, his current market value is in negative.
On another side, if an investor invests Rs. 5,000 in Kingfisher and another one is in ITC, his current market
value is in profit. This will make his entire investment amount is in profit.
Liquidity: (INVEST ANY TIME, REDEEM ANY TIME)
In mutual fund, you can withdraw (redeem) your investment at any period of time. Unlike, Real
estate wherein selling as asset is very time consuming.

research & investment has a sound knowledge and experience in their respective field. And, every
fund has a designated Fund Manager.

What is New Fund Offer (NFO)
Whenever an AMC launches a new scheme, it is known as NEW FUND OFFER (NFO)
This is for the period of 15 days (except ELSS)
NFO of ELSS fund has a period of 20 days.
In NFO, the units are allotted at Rs. 10 which is as same as a cost price of a new scheme, which is also known as
This face value is also use at the time of declaration of dividend as same as it function in equities.
For Example: Motilal Oswal AMC, has launched its new scheme called MOSt Focus Mid Cap 30, which has NFO
period of 15 days dated 3rd Feb, 2013 to 17th Feb 2013. At this time units were allotted at Rs. 10.
What is NAV…& Why it is important?
Net Asset Value:
In laymen terms, it is a price of a scheme, like any other product which has its own price.
If anyone wants to invest in a particular scheme, it invests as per its current NAV & anyone wants to redeem his
investment, redeem at current NAV.
How it calculated?
N E T A S S E T V A L U E ( N A V ) =
A S S E T S - L I A B I L I T I E S
N O . O F U N I T S I S S U E D
Net Asset Value (NAV)
If an AMC invested Rs. 10,000 in equity market & current value is Rs. 12,000. The expenses incurred in handling
funds is Rs. 500. No. of units allotted to its all investors is 1,000. So NAV if scheme is;
Assets: Rs. 12,000
Liabilities: Rs. 500.
No. of units: 1,000.
NAV= (12,000-500)/1,000 ; 11,500/1,000
NAV= Rs. 11.5
Why NAV is important?
It is important for a various reason;
It is a price of a scheme.
Current NAV of any scheme, describes the performance of the fund.
If a scheme launched in Feb, 2012 & allotted units @ Rs. 10. after 6 months, NAV of a fund is Rs. 12,
(scheme has given 20% returns), after an year if NAV is Rs. 8, scheme is in negative 20% from the
date of NFO.
Why NAV fluctuates??
There are four reason of which NAV fluctuates:
1. Performance of investment: Fund manager invests the money into various securities, the
performance of these securities impact NAV. (if price of invested securities increases, NAV increases
& vice versa).
2. Investment & redemption: If investor invest in Mutual Fund, he becomes the member of fund
house, his entry and exit impact on the NAV. Like; if an investor invested in a particular scheme, it
will increase the asset of a fund, so NAV will increase, and if someone redeems, it take out the
money from fund, so asset side reduces, so NAV reduces.
3. Expenses of scheme: If a scheme has huge expenses due to portfolio restructuring, marketing
expense, distribution expenses etc. It impacts inversely with NAV. Higher the expenses, lower the
NAV. So, always check the expense ratio of a fund, before investing. Note: SEBI, tracks the
expense incurred by an AMC in a particular scheme, if any excess amount that has be borne by
4. Declaration of Dividend: If a scheme declares dividend, and after the payment of dividend, NAV
of a fund. Reduces, because bank balance has been reduces because of payment has made by an
If a scheme declares dividend of Re.1, then NAV of next day (ex-dividend NAV) reduces by Re.1
What is Units?
It is like share in equity, wherein mutual fund allots units in against of investment made by an
Allotment of units is based on face value in the time of NFO , and post-NFO is based on NAV.
For example: If an investor invested Rs. 1 lacs in a Scheme A in NFO, he will get;
Rs. 1 lacs/ Rs. 10 = 10,000 units.
If invested post-NFO, and NAV of scheme is Rs, 20, at the time of investment, he will get,
Rs. 1 lacs / Rs. 20 = 5,000 units allotted
What are the expenses in Mutual Fund?
There are only two direct expenses in mutual fund for an investor:
1. Entry Load: When an investor invests in a mutual fun, it gets a charge of small amount let’s
say 0.5% 0f NAV, which is known as entry load. Hence now entry load is NIL.
2. Exit Load: When an investor wants to redeem (withdraw) his investment, AMC charges a
small amount let’s say 1% of NAV, which is known as exit load.
3. Expense Ratio: It is not directly charged to investors, however this expenses is adjusted in
NAV and it is charged on the total funds collected in a scheme. This has a beauty that this
charge is get distributed among all the investor.
What is Sales price & Repurchase Price?
Sales Price: This is a price when an investor invest. It is calculated by;
Sales price = NAV + Entry Load
If one investor invested Rs. 10,000 in a fund & NAV is Rs. 20, entry load is 1%, the sales price will
Rs. 20 + (Rs. 20 X 1%
Rs. 20 + Rs. 0.2
Note: Now entry load is NIL, so sales price is as same as NAV
Repurchase Price: This is a price when an investor redeems his investment.
It is calculated by;
Repurchase price = NAV – Exit Load
If one investor wants to redeem 1,000 units, in a fund & NAV is Rs. 20, ext load is 1%, the repurchase
price will be;
Rs. 20 - (Rs. 20 X 1%)
Rs. 20 - Rs. 0.2
Note: If an investor hold his investment for a long period of time (let’s say for more than a year) exit
load become NIL.
Asset Classes: There are majorly three types of classes of an asset.
Asset Allocations: A major part of assets of a scheme is its investment, and it has to allocate it
carefully among the desired asset classes.
Portfolio: It is a list of companies wherein a fund manager will invests the collected fund.
Asset Under Management (AUM): This is a fund collected by an AMC including all the
schemes it has launched till date.
HDFC Mutual Fund has maximum amount of AUM (Rs. 104,000 Cr.)
