In few years Mutual Fund has emerged as a tool for ensuring one‘s financial well being. Mutual
Funds have not only contributed to the India growth story but have also helped families tap into
the success of Indian Industry. As information and awareness is rising more and more people are
enjoying the benefits of investing in mutual funds. The main reason the number of retail mutual
fund investors remains small is that nine in ten people with incomes in India do not know that
mutual funds exist. But once people are aware of mutual fund investment opportunities, the
number who decide to invest in mutual funds increases to as many as one in five people. The
trick for converting a person with no knowledge of mutual funds to a new Mutual Fund customer
is to understand which of the potential investors are more likely to buy mutual funds and to use
the right arguments in the sales process that customers will accept as important and relevant to
This Project gave me a great learning experience and at the same time it gave me enough scope
to implement my analytical ability. The analysis and advice presented in this Project Report is
based on market research on the saving and investment practices of the investors and preferences
of the investors for investment in Mutual Funds. This Report will help to know about the
investors‘ Preferences in Mutual Fund means Are they prefer any particular Asset Management
Company (AMC), Which type of Product they prefer, Which Option (Growth or Dividend) they
prefer or Which Investment Strategy they follow (Systematic Investment Plan or One time Plan).
This Project as a whole can be divided into two parts.
The first part gives an insight about Mutual Fund and its various aspects, the Company Profile,

MUTUAL FUNDS –
CONCEPT, ORGANISATIONAL STRUCTURE & A
DVANTAGES & TYPES:
A Mutual Fund is a trust that pools the savings of a number of investors who share a common
financial goal. The money thus collected is then invested in capital market instruments such as
shares, debentures and other securities. The income earned through these investments and the
capital appreciation realized are shared by its unit holders in proportion to the number of units
owned by them. Thus a Mutual Fund is the most suitable investment for the common man as it
offers an opportunity to invest in a diversified, professionally managed basket of securities at a
relatively low cost. The flow chart below describes broadly the working of a mutual fund :

TYPES OF MUTUAL FUNDS SCHEMES IN INDIA
TYPES OF MUTUAL
Open - Ended
Close - Ended
Wide variety of Mutual Fund Schemes exists to cater to the needs such as financial
position, risk tolerance and return expectations etc. thus mutual funds has Variety of flavors,
Being a collection of many stocks, an investors can go for picking a mutual fund might be easy.
There are over hundreds of mutual funds scheme to choose from. It is easier to think of mutual
funds in categories, mentioned below.
A). BY STRUCTURE
1. Open - Ended Schemes:
An open-end fund is one that is available for subscription all through the year. These do
not have a fixed maturity. Investors can conveniently buy and sell units at Net Asset Value
("NAV") related prices. The key feature of open-end schemes is liquidity.
2. Close - Ended Schemes:
A closed-end fund has a stipulated maturity period which generally ranging from 3 to 15
years. The fund is open for subscription only during a specified period. Investors can invest in
the scheme at the time of the initial public issue and thereafter they can buy or sell the units of
the scheme on the stock exchanges where they are listed. In order to provide an exit route to the
investors, some close-ended funds give an option of selling back the units to the Mutual Fund
through periodic repurchase at NAV related prices. SEBI Regulations stipulate that at least one
of the two exit routes is provided to the investor.
3. Interval Schemes:
Interval Schemes are that scheme, which combines the features of open-ended and close-
ended schemes. The units may be traded on the stock exchange or may be open for sale or
redemption during pre-determined intervals at NAV related prices.
B) BY NATURE
1. Equity Fund:
These funds invest a maximum part of their corpus into equities holdings. The structure
of the fund may vary different for different schemes and the fund manager‘s outlook on different
stocks. The Equity Funds are sub-classified depending upon their investment objective, as
Diversified Equity Funds
Sector Specific Funds
Tax Savings Funds (ELSS)
2. Debt Funds:
The objective of these Funds is to invest in debt papers. Government authorities, private
companies, banks and financial institutions are some of the major issuers of debt papers. By
investing in debt instruments, these funds ensure low risk and provide stable income to the
investors. Debt funds are further classified as:
Gilt Funds: Invest their corpus in securities issued by Government, popularly known as
Government of India debt papers.
Income Funds: Invest a major portion into various debt instruments such as bonds,
corporate debentures and Government securities.
MIPs: Invests maximum of their total corpus in debt instruments while they take
minimum exposure in equities.
Short Term Plans (STPs): Meant for investment horizon for three to six months. These
funds primarily invest in short term papers like Certificate of Deposits (CDs) and
Commercial Papers (CPs).
Liquid Funds: Also known as Money Market Schemes, These funds provides easy
liquidity and preservation of capital. These schemes invest in short-term instruments like
Treasury Bills, inter-bank call money market, CPs and CDs..
3. Balanced Funds:
As the name suggest they, are a mix of both equity and debt funds. They invest in both
equities and fixed income securities, which are in line with pre-defined investment objective of
B). BY INVESTMENT OBJECTIVE:
Growth Schemes are also known as equity schemes. The aim of these schemes is to
provide capital appreciation over medium to long term.
Income Schemes are also known as debt schemes. The aim of these schemes is to provide
regular and steady income to investors. These schemes generally invest in fixed income
securities such as bonds and corporate debentures. Capital appreciation in such schemes may be
Balanced Schemes aim to provide both growth and income by periodically distributing a
part of the income and capital gains they earn.
Money Market Schemes:
Money Market Schemes aim to provide easy liquidity, preservation of capital and
moderate income. These schemes generally invest in safer, short-term instruments, such as
treasury bills, certificates of deposit, commercial paper and inter-bank call money.
A Load Fund is one that charges a commission for entry or exit. That is, each time you
buy or sell units in the fund, a commission will be payable. Typically entry and exit loads range
from 1% to 2%.
A No-Load Fund is one that does not charge a commission for entry or exit. That is, no
commission is payable on purchase or sale of units in the fund.
Tax Saving Schemes:
Tax-saving schemes offer tax rebates to the investors under tax laws prescribed from time
to time. Under Sec.88 of the Income Tax Act, contributions made to any Equity Linked Savings
Scheme (ELSS) are eligible for rebate.
Index schemes attempt to replicate the performance of a particular index such as the BSE
Sensex or the NSE 50.
Sector Specific Schemes:
These are the funds/schemes which invest in the securities of only those sectors or industries as
specified in the offer documents. e.g. Pharmaceuticals, Software, Fast Moving Consumer Goods
(FMCG), Petroleum stocks, etc. The returns in these funds are dependent on the performance of
the respective sectors/industries..
ADVANTAGES OF MUTUAL FUNDS:
If mutual funds are emerging as the favorite investment vehicle, it is because of the many
advantages they have over other forms and the avenues of investing, particularly for the investor
who has limited resources available in terms of capital and the ability to carry out detailed
research and market monitoring. The following are the major advantages offered by mutual
funds to all investors:
1. Portfolio Diversification:
Each investor in the fund is a part owner of all the fund‘s assets, thus enabling him to
hold a diversified investment portfolio even with a small amount of investment that would
otherwise require big capital.
2. Professional Management:
Even if an investor has a big amount of capital available to him, he benefits from the
professional management skills brought in by the fund in the management of the investor‘s
portfolio. The investment management skills, along with the needed research into available
investment options, ensure a much better return than what an investor can manage on his own.
Few investors have the skill and resources of their own to succeed in today‘s fast moving, global
and sophisticated markets.
3. Reduction/Diversification Of Risk:
When an investor invests directly, all the risk of potential loss is his own, whether he
places a deposit with a company or a bank, or he buys a share or debenture on his own or in any
other from. While investing in the pool of funds with investors, the potential losses are also
shared with other investors. The risk reduction is one of the most important benefits of a
collective investment vehicle like the mutual fund.
4. Reduction Of Transaction Costs:
What is true of risk as also true of the transaction costs. The investor bears all the costs of
investing such as brokerage or custody of securities. When going through a fund, he has the
benefit of economies of scale; the funds pay lesser costs because of larger volumes, a benefit
passed on to its investors.
Often, investors hold shares or bonds they cannot directly, easily and quickly sell. When
they invest in the units of a fund, they can generally cash their investments any time, by selling
their units to the fund if open-ended, or selling them in the market if the fund is close-end.
Liquidity of investment is clearly a big benefit.
6. Convenience And Flexibility:
Mutual fund management companies offer many investor services that a direct market
investor cannot get. Investors can easily transfer their holding from one scheme to the other; get
updated market information and so on.
7. Tax Benefits:
Any income distributed after March 31, 2002 will be subject to tax in the assessment of
all Unit holders. However, as a measure of concession to Unit holders of open-ended equity-
oriented funds, income distributions for the year ending March 31, 2003, will be taxed at a
concessional rate of 10.5%.
In case of Individuals and Hindu Undivided Families a deduction uptoRs. 9,000 from the
Total Income will be admissible in respect of income from investments specified in Section 80L,
including income from Units of the Mutual Fund. Units of the schemes are not subject to
Wealth-Tax and Gift-Tax.
8. Choice of Schemes:
Mutual Funds offer a family of schemes to suit your varying needs over a lifetime.
9. Well Regulated:
All Mutual Funds are registered with SEBI and they function within the provisions of strict
regulations designed to protect the interests of investors. The operations of Mutual Funds are
regularly monitored by SEBI.
You get regular information on the value of your investment in addition to disclosure on the
specific investments made by your scheme, the proportion invested in each class of assets
and the fund manager's investment strategy and outlook.
DISADVANTAGES OF INVESTING THROUGH MUTUAL FUNDS:
1. No Control Over Costs:
An investor in a mutual fund has no control of the overall costs of investing. The investor
pays investment management fees as long as he remains with the fund, albeit in return for the
professional management and research. Fees are payable even if the value of his investments is
declining. A mutual fund investor also pays fund distribution costs, which he would not incur in
direct investing. However, this shortcoming only means that there is a cost to obtain the mutual
2. No Tailor-Made Portfolio:
Investors who invest on their own can build their own portfolios of shares and bonds and
other securities. Investing through fund means he delegates this decision to the fund managers.
The very-high-net-worth individuals or large corporate investors may find this to be a constraint
in achieving their objectives. However, most mutual fund managers help investors overcome this
constraint by offering families of funds- a large number of different schemes- within their own
management company. An investor can choose from different investment plans and constructs a
portfolio to his choice.
3. Managing A Portfolio Of Funds:
Availability of a large number of funds can actually mean too much choice for the
investor. He may again need advice on how to select a fund to achieve his objectives, quite
similar to the situation when he has individual shares or bonds to select.
4. The Wisdom Of Professional Management:
That's right, this is not an advantage. The average mutual fund manager is no better at
picking stocks than the average nonprofessional, but charges fees.
5. No Control:
Unlike picking your own individual stocks, a mutual fund puts you in the passenger seat
of somebody else's car
Mutual funds generally have such small holdings of so many different stocks that
insanely great performance by a fund's top holdings still doesn't make much of a difference in a
mutual fund's total performance.
7. Buried Costs:
Many mutual funds specialize in burying their costs and in hiring salesmen who do not make
those costs clear to their clients.
SCOPE & IMPORTANCE OF MUTUAL FUND
Over a medium to long-term, Mutual Funds have the potential to provide a higher return
as they invest in a diversified basket of selected securities.
Mutual Funds are a relatively less expensive way to invest compared to directly investing
in the capital markets because the benefits of scale in brokerage, custodial and other fees
translate into lower costs for investors.
In open-end schemes, the investor gets the money back promptly at net asset value
related prices from the Mutual Fund. In close-end schemes, the units can be sold on a stock
exchange at the prevailing market price or the investor can avail of the facility of direct
repurchase at NAV related prices by the Mutual Fund.
You get regular information on the value of your investment in addition to disclosure on
the specific investments made by your scheme, the proportion invested in each class of assets
and the fund manager‘s investment strategy and outlook.
Through features such as regular investment plans, regular withdrawal plans and dividend
reinvestment plans, you can systematically invest or withdraw funds according to your needs and
Investors individually may lack sufficient funds to invest in high-grade stocks. A mutual
fund because of its large corpus allows even a small investor to take the benefit of its investment
Choice of Schemes
Mutual Funds offer a family of schemes to suit our varying needs over a lifetime.
All Mutual Funds are registered with SEBI and they function within the provisions of
strict regulations designed to protect the interests of investors. The operations of Mutual Funds
are regularly monitored by SEBI.
Net Asset Value (NAV)
The net asset value of the fund is the cumulative market value of the assets fund net of its
liabilities. In other words, if the fund is dissolved or liquidated, by selling off all the assets in the
fund, this is the amount that the shareholders would collectively own. This gives rise to the
concept of net asset value per unit, which is the value, represented by the ownership of one unit
in the fund. It is calculated simply by dividing the net asset value of the fund by the number of
units. However, most people refer loosely to the NAV per unit as NAV, ignoring the ‗‗per unit‘‘.
We also abide by the same convention.
Note: - In order to understand the term NAV more accurately it is important to learn it’s
calculation which is explained as under: -
Calculation of NAV
The most important part of the calculation is the valuation of the assets owned by the
fund. Once it is calculated, the NAV is simply the net value of assets divided by the number of
units outstanding. The detailed methodology for the calculation of the asset value is given below.
Asset value is equal to
Sum of market value of shares/debentures + Liquid assets/cash held, if any +
Dividends/interest accrued Amount due on unpaid assets Expenses accrued but not paid.
Details on the above items
For liquid shares/debentures, valuation is done on the basis of the last or closing market
price on the principal exchange where the security is traded.
For illiquid and unlisted and/or thinly traded shares/debentures, the value has to be
estimated. For shares, this could be the book value per share or an estimated market price if
suitable benchmarks are available. For debentures and bonds, value is estimated on the basis of
yields of comparable liquid securities after adjusting for illiquidity. The value of fixed interest
bearing securities moves in a direction opposite to interest rate changes Valuation of debentures
and bonds is a big problem since most of them are unlisted and thinly traded. This gives
considerable leeway to the AMCs on valuation and some of the AMCs are believed to take
advantage of this and adopt flexible valuation policies depending on the situation.
Interest is payable on debentures/bonds on a periodic basis say every 6 months. But, with
every passing day, interest is said to be accrued, at the daily interest rate, which is calculated by
dividing the periodic interest payment with the number of days in each period. Thus, accrued
interest on a particular day is equal to the daily interest rate multiplied by the number of days
since the last interest payment date.
Usually, dividends are proposed at the time of the Annual General meeting and become
due on the record date. There is a gap between the dates on which it becomes due and the actual
payment date. In the intermediate period, it is deemed to be ‗‗accrued‘‘.
Expenses including management fees, custody charges etc. are calculated on a daily basis.
STRUCTURE OF INDIAN MUTUAL FUND INDUSTRY
The Indian mutual fund industry is dominated by the Unit Trust of India which has a total
corpus of Rs 700bn collected from more than 20 million investors. The UTI has many
funds/schemes in all categories ie equity, balanced income etc. with some being open-ended and
some being closed-ended. The Unit Scheme 1964 commonly referred to as US 64, which is a
balanced fund, is the biggest scheme with a corpus of about Rs 200 bn. UTI was floated by
financial institutions and is governed by a special act of Parliament. Most of its investors believe
that the UTI is government owned and controlled, which, while legally incorrect, is true for all
The second largest category of mutual funds are the ones floated by nationalized banks.
Canbank Asset Management floated by Canara Bank and SBI Funds Management floated by the
State Bank of India are the largest of these. GIC AMC floated by General Insurance Corporation
and JeevanBimaSahayog AMC floated by the LIC are some of the other prominent ones. The
aggregate corpus of funds managed by this category of AMCs is about Rs 150 bn.
The third largest category of mutual funds is the ones floated by the private sector and by foreign
asset management companies. The largest of these are Prudential ICICI AMC and Birla Sun Life
AMC>The aggregate corpus of assets managed by this category of AMCs is in excess of Rs 250
Some basic facts:
The money market mutual fund segment has a total corpus of $ 1.48 trillion in the U.S.
against a corpus of $ 100 million in India.
Out of the top 10 mutual funds worldwide, eight are bank- sponsored. Only Fidelity and
Capital are non-bank mutual funds in this group.
In the U.S. the total number of schemes is higher than that of the listed companies while
in India we have just 277 schemes
Internationally, mutual funds are allowed to go short. In India fund managers do not have
In the U.S. about 9.7 million households will manage their assets on-line by the year
2003, such a facility is not yet of avail in India.
On- line trading is a great idea to reduce management expenses from the current 2 % of
total assets to about 0.75 % of the total assets.
72% of the core customer base of mutual funds in the top 50-broking firms in the U.S. are
expected to trade on-line by 2003.
(Source: The Financial Express September, 99)
Internationally, on-line investing continues its meteoric rise. Many have debated about the
success of e- commerce and its breakthroughs, but it is true that this aspect of technology could
and will change the way financial sectors function. However, mutual funds cannot be left far
behind. They have realized the potential of the Internet and are equipping themselves to perform
In fact in advanced countries like the U.S.A, mutual funds buy- sell transactions have already
begun on the Net, while in India the Net is used as a source of Information.
Such changes could facilitate easy access, lower intermediation costs and better services for all.
A research agency that specializes in internet technology estimates that over the next four years
Mutual Fund Assets traded on- line will grow ten folds from $ 128 billion to $ 1,227 billion ;
whereas equity assets traded on-line will increase during the period from $ 246 billion to $ 1,561
billion. This will increase the share of mutual funds from 34% to 40% during the period.
(Source: The Financial Express September ,99)
Such increases in volumes are expected to bring about large changes in the way Mutual Funds
conduct their business.
Here are some of the basic changes that have taken place since the advent of the Net.
Lower Costs: Distribution of funds will fall in the online trading regime by 2003 . Mutual
funds could bring down their administrative costs to 0.75% if trading is done on- line. As
per SEBI regulations , bond funds can charge a maximum of 2.25% and equity funds can
charge 2.5% as administrative fees. Therefore if the administrative costs are low , the
benefits are passed down and hence Mutual Funds are able to attract mire investors and
increase their asset base.
Better advice: Mutual funds could provide better advice to their investors through the Net
rather than through the traditional investment routes where there is an additional channel
to deal with the Brokers. Direct dealing with the fund could help the investor with their
In India , brokers could get more Net savvy than investors and could help the investors
with the knowledge through get from the Net.
New investors would prefer online : Mutual funds can target investors who are young
individuals and who are Net savvy, since servicing them would be easier on the Net.
India has around 1.6 million net users who are prime target for these funds and this could
just be the beginning. The Internet users are going to increase dramatically and mutual
funds are going to be the best beneficiary. With smaller administrative costs more funds
would be mobilized .A fund manager must be ready to tackle the volatility and will have
to maintain sufficient amount of investments which are high liquidity and low yielding
investments to honor redemption.
Net based advertisements: There will be more sites involved in ads and promotion of
mutual funds. In the U.S. sites like AOL offer detailed research and financial details
about the functioning of different funds and their performance statistics. A is witnessing a
genesis in this area.
The asset base will continue to grow at an annual rate of about 30 to 35 % over the next few
years as investor‘s shift their assets from banks and other traditional avenues. Some of the older
public and private sector players will either close shop or be taken over.
Out of ten public sector players five will sell out, close down or merge with stronger players in
three to four years. In the private sector this trend has already started with two mergers and one
takeover. Here too some of them will down their shutters in the near future to come.
But this does not mean there is no room for other players. The market will witness a flurry of
new players entering the arena. There will be a large number of offers from various asset
management companies in the time to come. Some big names like Fidelity, Principal, Old
Mutual etc. are looking at Indian market seriously. One important reason for it is that most major
players already have presence here and hence these big names would hardly like to get left
In the U.S. most mutual funds concentrate only on financial funds like equity and debt. Some
like real estate funds and commodity funds also take an exposure to physical assets. The latter
type of funds are preferred by corporate‘s who want to hedge their exposure to the commodities
they deal with.
For instance, a cable manufacturer who needs 100 tons of Copper in the month of January could
buy an equivalent amount of copper by investing in a copper fund. For Example, Permanent
Portfolio Fund, a conservative U.S. based fund invests a fixed percentage of it‘s corpus in Gold,
Silver, Swiss francs, specific stocks on various bourses around the world, short –term and long-
term U.S. treasuries etc.
In U.S.A. apart from bullion funds there are copper funds, precious metal funds and real estate
funds (investing in real estate and other related assets as well.).In India, the Canada based
Dundee mutual fund is planning to launch a gold and a real estate fund before the year-end.
In developed countries like the U.S.A there are funds to satisfy everybody‘s requirement, but in
India only the tip of the iceberg has been explored. In the near future India too will concentrate
on financial as well as physical funds.
The mutual fund industry is awaiting the introduction of DERIVATIVES in the country as this
would enable it to hedge its risk and this in turn would be reflected in it‘s Net Asset Value
SEBI is working out the norms for enabling the existing mutual fund schemes to trade in
Derivatives. Importantly, many market players have called on the Regulator to initiate the
process immediately, so that the mutual funds can implement the changes that are required to
trade in Derivatives.
RISK FACTORS OF MUTUAL FUNDS:
1. The Risk-Return Trade-Off:
The most important relationship to understand is the risk-return trade-off. Higher the risk
greater the returns / loss and lower the risk lesser the returns/loss..
2. Market Risk:
Sometimes prices and yields of all securities rise and fall. Broad outside influences
affecting the market in general lead to this. This is true, may it be big corporations or smaller
3. Credit Risk:
The debt servicing ability (may it be interest payments or repayment of principal) of a
company through its cashflows determines the Credit Risk faced by you.
4. Inflation Risk:
The root cause, Inflation. Inflation is the loss of purchasing power over time. A lot of times
people make conservative investment decisions to protect their capital but end up with a sum of
money that can buy less than what the principal could at the time of the investment. Interest
In 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.
5. Political / Government Policy Risk:
Changes in government policy and political decision can change the investment
environment. They can create a favorable environment for investment or vice versa.
6. Liquidity Risk:
Liquidity risk arises when it becomes difficult to sell the securities that one has
purchased. Liquidity Risk can be partly mitigated by diversification, staggering of maturities as
well as internal risk controls that lean towards purchase of liquid securities.
WORKING OF MUTUAL FUNDS
The mutual fund collects money directly or through brokers from investors. The money is
invested in various instruments depending on the objective of the scheme. The income generated
by selling securities or capital appreciation of these securities is passed on to the investors in
proportion to their investment in the scheme. The investments are divided into units and the
value of the units will be reflected in Net Asset Value or NAV of the unit. NAV is the market
value of the assets of the scheme minus its liabilities. The per unit NAV is the net asset value of
the scheme divided by the number of units outstanding on the valuation date. Mutual fund
companies provide daily net asset value of their schemes to their investors. NAV is important, as
it will determine the price at which you buy or redeem the units of a scheme. Depending on the
load structure of the scheme, you have to pay entry or exit load.
STRUCTURE OF A MUTUAL FUND:
India has a legal framework within which Mutual Fund have to be constituted. In India
open and close-end funds operate under the same regulatory structure i.e. as unit Trusts. A
Mutual Fund in India is allowed to issue open-end and close-end schemes under a common legal
structure. The structure that is required to be followed by any Mutual Fund in India is laid down
under SEBI (Mutual Fund) Regulations, 1996.
The Fund Sponsor:
Sponsor is defined under SEBI regulations as any person who, acting alone or in
combination of another corporate body establishes a Mutual Fund.
Mutual Funds as Trusts:
A Mutual Fund in India is constituted in the form of Public trust Act, 1882. The Fund
sponsor acts as a settlor of the Trust, contributing to its initial capital and appoints a trustee to
hold the assets of the trust for the benefit of the unit-holders.
A Trust is created through a document called the Trust Deed that is executed by the fund
sponsor in favour of the trustees. The Trust- the Mutual Fund – may be managed by a board of
trustees- a body of individuals, or a trust company- a corporate body. Most of the funds in India
are managed by Boards of Trustees.
The Asset Management Companies:
The role of an Asset Management Company (AMC) is to act as the investment manager
of the Trust under the board supervision and the guidance of the Trustees..
Custodian and Depositories:
.The custodian is appointed by the Board of Trustees for safekeeping of securities or
participating in any clearance system through approved depository companies on behalf of the
Mutual Fund and it must fulfill its responsibilities in accordance with its agreement with the
A Fund‘s activities involve dealing in money on a continuous basis primarily with respect
to buying and selling units, paying for investment made, receiving the proceeds from sale of the
investments and discharging its obligations towards operating expenses. Thus the Fund‘s banker
plays an important role to determine quality of service that the fund gives in timely delivery of
Transfer agents are responsible for issuing and redeeming units of the Mutual Fund and
provide other related services such as preparation of transfer documents and updating investor
REGULATORY STRUCTURE OF MUTUAL FUNDS IN INDIA:
The structure of mutual funds in India is guided by the SEBI. Regulations, 1996.These
regulations make it mandatory for mutual fund to have three structures of sponsor trustee and
asset Management Company. The sponsor of the mutual fund and appoints the trustees. The
trustees are responsible to the investors in mutual fund and appoint the AMC for managing the
investment portfolio. The AMC is the business face of the mutual fund, as it manages all the
affairs of the mutual fund. The AMC and the mutual fund have to be registered with SEBI.
Schemes of a Mutual Fund
The asset management company shall launch no scheme unless the trustees approve such
scheme and a copy of the offer document has been filed with the Board.
Every mutual fund shall along with the offer document of each scheme pay filing fees.
The offer document shall contain disclosures which are adequate in order to enable the
investors to make informed investment decision including the disclosure on maximum
investments proposed to be made by the scheme in the listed securities of the group
companies of the sponsor. A close-ended scheme shall be fully redeemed at the end of the
maturity period. ―Unless a majority of the unit holders otherwise decide for its rollover
by passing a resolution‖.
The mutual fund and asset management company shall be liable to refund the application
money to the applicants,-
(i) If the mutual fund fails to receive the minimum subscription amount referred to in clause
(a) of sub-regulation (1);
(ii) If the moneys received from the applicants for units are in excess of subscription as
referred to in clause (b) of sub-regulation (1).
The asset management company shall issue to the applicant whose application has been
accepted, unit certificates or a statement of accounts specifying the number of units
allotted to the applicant as soon as possible but not later than six weeks from the date of
closure of the initial subscription list and or from the date of receipt of the request from
the unit holders in any open ended scheme.

State Bank of India
State Bank of India (SBI) ( - ) is a
multinational banking and financial services company based in India. It is astate-owned
corporation with its headquarters in Mumbai, Maharashtra. As at December 2012, it had assets
of US$501 billion and 15,003 branches, including 157 foreign offices making it the largest
banking and financial services company in India by assests.
The bank traces its ancestry to British India, through the Imperial Bank of India, to the founding
in 1806 of the Bank of Calcutta, making it the oldest commercial bank in the Indian
Subcontinent. Bank of Madras merged into the other two presidency banks—Bank of Calcutta
and Bank of Bombay—to form the Imperial Bank of India, which in turn became the State Bank
of India. The Government of India nationalised the Imperial Bank of India in 1955, with
the Reserve Bank of India taking a 60% stake, and renamed it the State Bank of India. In 2008,
the government took over the stake held by the Reserve Bank of India. SBI has been ranked
285th in the Fortune Global 500 rankings of the world's biggest corporations for the year 2012.
SBI provides a range of banking products through its network of branches in India and overseas,
including products aimed at non-resident Indians (NRIs). SBI has 14 regional hubs and 57 Zonal
Offices that are located at important cities throughout the country.
SBI is a regional banking behemoth and has 20% market share in deposits and loans among
Indian commercial banks.
The State Bank of India was named the 29th most reputed company in the world according
to Forbes 2009 rankings and was the only bank featured in the "top 10 brands of India" list in an
annual survey conducted by Brand Finance and The Economic Times in 2010
Seal of Imperial Bank of India.
The roots of the State Bank of India lie in the first decade of 19th century, when the Bank of
Calcutta, later renamed the Bank of Bengal, was established on 2 June 1806. The Bank of Bengal
was one of three Presidency banks, the other two being the Bank of Bombay(incorporated on 15
April 1840) and the Bank of Madras (incorporated on 1 July 1843). All three Presidency banks
were incorporated asjoint stock companies and were the result of the royal charters. These three
banks received the exclusive right to issue paper currency till 1861 when with the Paper
Currency Act, the right was taken over by the Government of India. The Presidency banks
amalgamated on 27 January 1921, and the re-organized banking entity took as its name Imperial
Bank of India. The Imperial Bank of India remained a joint stock company but without
Pursuant to the provisions of the State Bank of India Act of 1955, the Reserve Bank of India,
which is India's central bank, acquired a controlling interest in the Imperial Bank of India. On 30
April 1955, the Imperial Bank of India became the State Bank of India. Thegovernment of
India recently acquired the Reserve Bank of India's stake in SBI so as to remove any conflict of
interest because the RBI is the country's banking regulatory authority.
In 1959, the government passed the State Bank of India (Subsidiary Banks) Act, which made
eight state banks associates of SBI. A process of consolidation began on 13 September 2008,
when the State Bank of Saurashtra merged with SBI.
SBI has acquired local banks in rescues. The first was the Bank of Behar (est. 1911), which SBI
acquired in 1969, together with its 28 branches. The next year SBI acquired National Bank of
Lahore (est. 1942), which had 24 branches. Five years later, in 1975, SBI acquired
KrishnaramBaldeo Bank, which had been established in 1916 in Gwalior State, under the
patronage of Maharaja MadhoRaoScindia. The bank had been the DukanPichadi, a small
moneylender, owned by the Maharaja. The new banks first manager was Jall N. Broacha, a Parsi.
In 1985, SBI acquired the Bank of Cochin in Kerala, which had 120 branches. SBI was the
acquirer as its affiliate, the State Bank of Travancore, already had an extensive network in

Overall in finance about performance of mutual fund in India mutual fund have a lot of
potential to grow. Mutual fund companies have to create and market innovative products and
frame long term marketing strategies. Product innovation will be one of the key determinants to
The mutual fund industry has to bring many innovative concept such as high yield bond
funds, principal protected fund long short term fund , arbitrage funds, dynamic funds and
precious metal funds. The penetration of mutual funds can be increased through investor
education, providing investor–oriented value added services, and innovative distribution
channels. Mutual funds have failed during the bearish market conditions. To sell successfully
during the bear market, there is a need to educate the investor about risk adjust return and total
portfolio return to enable them to take an inform decision. Mutual funds need to develop a wide
distribution network to increase its reach and tap investment from all concerns and segments.
Increased use of internet time and development of alternative channels such as financial advisors
can play a vital role in increasing the potential of mutual funds. Mutual funds in order to increase
their reach need to form large capital. Mutual funds have equity capital upto around rupee 80
croreeach which is quite low compared to insurance companies, which, on an average, have
equity capital of close to 300 crore.
The retail participation in mutual fund is still low on account of incorrect positioning of
mutual fund products, industry focus on wholesale market, investors preference for guaranteed
return product and industry inability to make inroads into smaller towns. There is need for retail
participation. Selling mutual funds require competence in identifying and matching investors
needs. Moreover, they need to educate investors that mutual fund help to build capital, not to be
become rich overnight. Mutual fund have come a long way, but a lot more can be done.
It is observed that I SBI Magnum global fund is performing on par with BSE 100 Index. It is
slightly higher than the Index during year 2007-08 , 2008-09 & 2009-10.
However during the 2nd
half of the 2011-12 . it is observed that the fund is slightly under
performing the BSE 100 index.
On an overall basis it is appreciable to notice that the a fund has out performed the BSE 100
index during the period of the study. It is noticeable that up to Nov. 2009 the fund has
performed more or less on par with the BSE 100index.
It is clearly observed that form NOV 2009 up to March 2012 the fund is clearly out performing
the BSE 100 index.
This analysis shows that the fund is worth considering investment by a moderate risk taking
This is attested by the fact that on a long term basis the fund has generated a comparatively
higher return to that of BSE 100 index.
An investor who has got significant amount that scheme during the a year 2007 -09, If , he has
not redeemed the fund that there is a return of 20% plus a generated when compared to that of
index which is about 17.5%.
It is suggested that they are profitable from the investment point of view. In case of equity fund
the portfolio of SBI magnum global fund is in good income stocks.
