INTODUCTION TO
MUTUAL FUNDS

Introduction:

Mutual funds are for everyone. Around the world, millions of investor invests in mutual
funds because of their safety, ease of investing and the many advantages they offer. It is very
necessary before investing that you know some basics of investing which are given below.It is
best option for those investors who don’t have time to manage their fund.

Investments and you:

Investment is never an easy process. However, a sound understanding of some basic


concepts make the process of investment decision-making much easier and the experience
much more enjoyable. The following step can help you get started on your path to becoming a
successful investor:

1. Identify your financial needs and goals:

The first step is to get a clear understanding of your own financial needs and goals. Ask
yourself the question –When do I need money and for what purpose? List down your financial
goals and when they will materialise (daughter’s higher education after 6 years, purchase of a
house after 10 years), and how much money you will need for the same. The answer will help
you arrive at the time frame for your investment – short term, medium term or long term.

Financial Goals Amount required Year’s to achieve Investment horizon


at today’s price your goal

Retirement Rs. 25 Lakhs 20 years Long term

Daughter’s higher Rs. 2 Lakhs 6 years Long term


16
Education

Buying a car Rs. 4 Lakhs 2 years Medium term

Son’s computer Rs. 0.5 Lakhs 6 months Short term


course

2. Understand your tolerance to risk:

Before making an investment decision, it is very necessary for an investor to know his
risk tolerance limits. Will he be comfortable with fluctuations in the value of his investments?
Or would he prefer to settle down for a lower return without many ups and downs. By knowing
risk tolerance limit of himself an investor can decide his portfolio and also choose from a
variety of financial investment tools , one which suit his portfolio the most.

3. Estimate your required rate of return:

Your required rat


e of return depends on your financial goals and the time you have to achieve them. Take an
example that your retirement goal at 58 years is Rs. 20 Lakhs and your monthly savings is Rs.
5000, your required rate of return depending on your current age would be:

Present Age Returns

43 years 9.5 %

48 years 21.2%

As you can see, the later you start, the higher will be your required rate of return, hence as your
investment horizon reduces, for the same level of saving you may need to take higher risk.
Alternatively, if you were not willing to take a higher risk, you would have to save a higher
amount every month- Rs 9800, almost twice the original savings required to achieve your
target accumulation.
These three steps give a very basic idea about how to invest, when an investor is seeking
investment in different financial tools. Though there are different steps of investment in each
financial tool, these acts as blue print for them too.

17
Mutual Funds and You:

What is a mutual fund?

A mutual fund is a type of financial intermediary that pools the funds of investors who
seek the same general investment objective and invests them in a number of different types of
financial claims (e.g. equity shares, bonds, money market instrument). These pooled funds
provide thousands of investors with proportional ownership of diversified managed by
professional investment managers.

Where do mutual funds invest?

Broadly, mutual funds invest basically in three types of asset classes:


Stocks: Stocks represent ownership or equity in a company. These are also called as
shares.
Bonds: These represent debt from companies, financial institutions or government agencies.
Money Market Instruments: These include short term debt instrument such as treasury bills,
certificates of deposits and inter bank money.

History of Mutual Funds in India:


In India the setting up of Unit Trust of India (UTI) in 1963 marked the advent of mutual
fund industry. Unit Trust of India was set up by an Act of Parliament. The purpose of
establishing of Unit Trust of India was to give a fillip to the equity market. In the wake of Indo-
China war of 1962, there was shortage of savings going into industrial investment for
economic development. There was a need to mobilize adequate amount of risk capital for
industrial enterprise. The household savings were sought to be channelized into primary and
secondary market through units. However, in the initial years, the emphasis in UTI was on
income product. MasterShare launched in 1986 ushered in the equity-oriented schemes in
India. Unit Trust of India launched a variety of innovative products suited to meet diverse
needs of investors, virtually the complete life cycle of investors.

Evolution of Mutual Fund in India:

18
The mutual fund industry in India started in 1963 with the formation of Unit Trust of
India, at the initiative of the Government of India and Reserve Bank the. The history of mutual
funds in India can be broadly divided into four distinct phases.

First Phase: 1964-1987


Unit Trust of India (UTI) was established on 1963 by an Act of Parliament. It was set up
by the Reserve Bank of India and functioned under the Regulatory and administrative control
of the Reserve Bank of India. In 1978 UTI was de-linked from the RBI and the Industrial
Development Bank of India (IDBI) took over the regulatory and administrative control in place
of RBI. The first scheme launched by UTI was Unit Scheme 1964. At the end of 1988 UTI had
Rs.6, 700 crores of assets under management.

Second Phase: 1987-1993 (Entry of Public Sector Funds)


1987 marked the entry of non- UTI, public sector mutual funds set up by public sector
banks and Life Insurance Corporation of India (LIC) and General Insurance Corporation of
India (GIC). SBI Mutual Fund was the first non- UTI Mutual Fund established in June 1987
followed by Canbank Mutual Fund (Dec 87), Punjab National Bank Mutual Fund (Aug 89),
Indian Bank Mutual Fund (Nov 89), Bank of India (Jun 90), Bank of Baroda Mutual Fund (Oct
92). LIC established its mutual fund in June 1989 while GIC had set up its mutual fund in
December 1990.
At the end of 1993, the mutual fund industry had assets under management of Rs.47, 004
crores.

Third Phase: 1993-2003 (Entry of Private Sector Funds)


With the entry of private sector funds in 1993, a new era started in the Indian mutual
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 into being, under which all mutual
funds, except UTI were to be registered and governed. 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 more comprehensive
and revised Mutual Fund Regulations in 1996. The industry now functions under the SEBI
(Mutual Fund) Regulations 1996
The 1993 SEBI (Mutual Fund) Regulations were substituted by a more comprehensive
and revised Mutual Fund Regulations in 1996. The industry now functions under the SEBI
(Mutual Fund) Regulations 1996

Fourth Phase: Since 2003


In February 2003, following the repeal of the Unit Trust of India Act 1963 UTI was
bifurcated into two separate entities. One is the Specified Undertaking of the Unit Trust of
India with assets under management of Rs.29, 835 crores as at the end of January 2003,
representing broadly, the assets of US 64 scheme, assured return and certain other schemes.
The Specified Undertaking of Unit Trust of India, functioning under an administrator and
under the rules framed by Government of India and does not come under the purview of the
Mutual Fund Regulations.
The second is the UTI Mutual Fund Ltd, sponsored by SBI, PNB, BOB and LIC. It is
registered with SEBI and functions under the Mutual Fund Regulations. With the bifurcation of
the erstwhile UTI which had in March 2000 more than Rs.76, 000 crores of assets under
19
management and with the setting up of a UTI Mutual Fund, conforming to the SEBI Mutual
Fund Regulations, and with recent mergers taking place among different private sector funds,
the mutual fund industry has entered its current phase of consolidation and growth. As at the
end of September, 2004, there were 29 funds, which manage assets of Rs.153108 crores under
421 schemes.

Funds for All Reasons and All Seasons:
TYPES OF MUTUAL FUNDS: -
Mutual Funds have specific investment objectives such as growth of capital, safety of
principal current income or tax exempt income, one can select one fund or any number of
different funds to help one meets ones specific goals. In general mutual fund fall under 3
general categories: -

 Equity fund invest in shares of common stocks.


 Fixed income funds invest in government or corporate securities which offer fixed rate
of returns.
 Balanced fund invest in a combination of both stocks and bonds.

AGGRESSIVE GROWTH FUNDS :-

These funds seek to provide maximum growth of capital with secondary emphasis on
dividend or interest income. They invest in common stocks with a high potential for rapid
growth and capital appreciation.
Aggressive growth funds are suitable for those investors who can afford to assume the
risk of potential loss in value of their investment in the hope of achieving substantial and rapid
gains. They are not suitable for investors who must conserve their principal or who must
maximize their current income.

GROWTH FUNDS:-

Like aggressive growth funds, growth fund generally invests in stocks for growth rather
than income. They are considered more conservative in their approach because they usually
invest in established companies to achieve long-term growth. Growth fund provides low
current income but the investor principal is more stable then it would be in an aggressive
growth fund. While the growth potential may be less over the short term, many growth funds
have superior long-term performance records.
These funds are suitable for growth oriented investors but not investors who are unable to
assume risk or who are dependent on maximizing current income from there investments.
21
GROWTH AND INCOME FUNDS:-

Growth and income funds seek long-term growth of capital as well as current income.
The investments strategies use to reach these goals vary among funds.
Growth and income funds have low to moderate stability of principal and moderate
potential for current income and growth. They are suitable for investors who can assume some
risk to achieve growth of capital but want to maintain a moderate level of current income.

FIXED INCOME FUNDS:-

The goal of fixed income fund is to provide high current income consistent with the
level of capital. Growth of capital is of secondary importance.
Fixed income funds offer a higher level of current income than money market funds, but
a lower stability of principal. Fixed income funds are suitable for investors who want to
maximize current income and who can assume a degree of capital risk in order to do so.

EQUITY FUNDS:-

Funds that invest in stocks represent the largest category of mutual fund. Generally the
investment objective of this class of fund is long-term capital growth with some income. There
are however many type of equity funds.

BALANCED FUNDS:-

The Balanced funds aims to provide both growth and income. These funds invest in both
shares and fixed income securities in the proportion indicated in their offer documents. It is an
idea for investors who are looking for the combinations of income and moderate growth.

MONEY MARKET FUNDS/ LIQUID FUNDS:-

For the cautious investors these funds provide a very high stability of principal while
seeking a moderate to high current income. They invest in highly liquid; virtually risk free,
short-term debt securities of agencies of the Indian government, banks and corporation and
treasury bills. Because of their short-term investments, money market mutual funds are able to
keep a virtually constant unit price; only the yield fluctuates.
Money market funds are suitable for those investors who want high stability of principal and
current income with immediate liquidity.

SPECIALITY / SECTOR FUNDS:-

These funds invest in securities of a specific industry or sector of the economy such as
health care, technology, leisure, utilities or precious metals. The funds enable investor to
diversify holding among many companies within an industry, a more conservative approach
than investing directly in one particular company.
22
Sector funds offer a opportunity for sharp capital gains in cases where the fund’s industry
is “in favor” but also entail the risk of capital losses when the industry is out of favor. While
sectors funds restrict holdings to a particular industry, other specialty funds such as index funds
gives investors a broadly diversified portfolio and attempt to mirror the performance of various
market averages.

OPEN ENDED SCHEMES:-

Open-ended schemes do not have a fixed maturity period. Investors can buy or sell units
at NAV- related prices from and to the mutual fund on any business day. These schemes have
unlimited capitalization, open-ended schemes do not have a fixed maturity, there is no cap on
the amount you can buy from the fund and the unit capital keep growing. These funds are not
generally listed on any exchange.
Open-ended schemes are preferred for their liquidity. Such funds can issue and redeem
units any time during the life of schemes. Hence unit capital of open-ended funds can fluctuate
on a daily basis. The advantages of open ended schemes are: -

1. Any time exit option


2. Any time enter option.

CLOSE ENDED SCHEMES:-

Close-ended schemes have fixed maturity periods. Investors can buy into these funds
during the period when these funds are open in the initial issue. After that such scheme cannot
issue new units except in case of bonus or right issue. However after the initial issue you can
buy or sell units of the schemes on the stock exchange where they are listed. The market price
of the unit could vary from the NAV of the schemes due to demand and supply factor

23
HOW LONG TO KEEP INVESTMENT TO GET MAXIMUM RETURNS

Technically open-ended funds you can withdraw your investments even within a week,
but to get desired returns positive time frame is required are:

Funds Time Period

Equity Funds 3 Years (plus)

Balanced Funds 18 months to 3 Years

MIP’s 1 Year (plus)

Income Funds 6 months to 1 Year

Liquid Funds few days to 6 months

WHAT RETURNS CAN I EXPECT IF I KEEP MY MONEY FOR SUGGESTED TIME


FRAMES

Funds Returns

Sector funds 22% to 25% p.a

Balance funds 15% to 18% p.a

24
MIP’s Pension Plans 12% to 15% p.a

Income Funds 10% to 12% p.a

Liquid Funds 7% to 9% p.a

The above-mentioned returns in the table are indicative and not assured. All investments
in MUTUAL FUNDS are securities and are subject to market risk and the NAVs of the
schemes may go up and down depending upon the factors and forces affecting the security
market including the fluctuations in the internal rates .The past performance of the MUTUAL
FUNDS is not indicative of future performance.

RISKS

The above Graph shows the Risk and Returns generated by different Funds. Liquid Funds are
less Risky and also generate less Returns where as Sector Funds are more Risky but generate
more Returns by the example of above two Funds it is clear that Risk and Returns are directly
proportional to each other. Other Funds like Equity Funds, Balanced Funds and Income Funds
are also gives the same percentage of Returns as the Risk involved.

ADVANTAGE OF MUTUAL FUND:-

The advantages of investing in a Mutual Fund are:

• Diversification: The best mutual funds design their portfolios so individual


investments will react differently to the same economic conditions. For example,
economic conditions like a rise in interest rates may cause certain securities in a
diversified portfolio to decrease in value. Other securities in the portfolio will respond
to the same economic conditions by increasing in value. When a portfolio is balanced in
this way, the value of the overall portfolio should gradually increase over time, even if
some securities lose value.

• Professional Management: Most mutual funds pay topflight professionals to manage


their investments. These managers decide what securities the fund will buy and sell.

• Regulatory oversight: Mutual funds are subject to many government regulations that
protect investors from fraud.

• Liquidity: It's easy to get your money out of a mutual fund. Write a check, make a call,
and you've got the cash.

• Convenience: You can usually buy mutual fund shares by mail, phone, or over the
Internet.

• Low cost: Mutual fund expenses are often no more than 1.5 percent of your
investment. Expenses for Index Funds are less than that, because index funds are not
actively managed. Instead, they automatically buy stock in companies that are listed on
a specific index.

• Transparency: Mutual Fund schemes are said to be Transparent because they show
the clear allocation of Funds to Investors.

26
• Flexibility: Mutual funds are flexible because they change time to time and also if an
Investor wants his money back before the maturity of the Fund He/she can easily
redeem it.

DRAWBACKS OF MUTUAL FUNDS:-

Mutual funds have their drawbacks and may not be for everyone:

• 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 losing
money.

• Fees and commissions:

All funds charge administrative fees to cover their day-to-day expenses. Some funds also
charge sales commissions or "loads" to compensate brokers, financial consultants, or
financial planners. Even if you don't use a broker or other financial adviser, you will pay a
sales commission if you buy shares in a Load Fund.

• Taxes:

During a typical year, most actively managed mutual funds sell anywhere from 20 to 70
percent of the securities in their portfolios. If your fund makes a profit on its sales, you will
pay taxes on the income you receive, even if you reinvest the money you made.

• Management risk:

When you invest in a mutual fund, you depend on the fund's manager to make the right
decisions regarding the fund's portfolio. If the manager does not perform as well as you had
hoped, you might not make as much money on your investment as you expected. Of
course, if you invest in Index Funds, you forego management risk, because these funds do
not employ managers.

PROJECT FINDINGS AND
RECOMMENDATIONS

48
PROJECT FINDINGS:
• There is great opportunity for Mutual Fund companies as there is a is a rise in number
of people who want to invest in share market but don’t have time and knowledge to do
so, also these people want to take less risk .

• With booming market and falling interest rate of bank deposits, people see mutual
funds as an attractive financial tool which provide a high return rate at lower risk as
compared to equity market.

• Young people these days are particularly more interested in mutual funds because they
see mutual fund as safe bet. Also these people have large disposable incomes and risk
taking capability too.

• The bad part is people are still ignorant about mutual funds and different schemes about
mutual funds, hence it is very necessary to educate them about mutual funds

• Advertising can also play a major part as it has been seen that people buy mutual fund
looking at the brand name.

RECOMMENDATIONS:
• India is passing through a tremendous growth phase with an average growth rate of 7-
8% per annum. With this growth phase there is growth in each and every sector, hence
there is rush to by shares and equities. It is also a very good time for mutual fund
companies but it is advisable for them and their brokers that they don’t just sell mutual
funds but sell the right kind of scheme which is comfortable to a person nature of
taking risk and need,

• There is a general ignorance and questions about, what are mutual funds? What are
different schemes of mutual funds? How to invest in a mutual? And many more. This
thing should be handled by mutual fund companies and their brokers to provide
knowledge to their clients.

• It has been seen that there is a major increase in the percentage of young investors who
have large amount of disposable income with them and want to invest, these type of
prospective clients should be tapped at an early stage.
49
• Small towns, villages are still untapped and can also acts as an business area of very
huge potential.

• Now even co-operative society can invest up to 10% of their capital in mutual funds
which open the door to new and very important client base.
