    • Investment in SIPs Slow Down Due To Shaky Market

      SIPs (Systematic Investment Plans) have been recorded a downturn in recent times due to shaky stock markets that have negatively affected retail investors. Up until recently, retail investors were investing significantly in equity mutual funds via monthly instalments. Net inflows into equity mutual funds recorded a decline by Rs.420 crore in the month of April, which was the biggest recorded fall over the course of the previous two years. The significance of the decline was amplified due to the fact that the inflows recorded in March stood at a whopping Rs.7,110 crore. According to wealth managers, the recent decline in stock markets was one of the reasons why investors were urged to stop SIPs for a short while.

    • MD of Axis Mutual Fund says a reclassified fund can assist you in attaining your financial goal

      The CEO and MD of Axis Mutual Fund, Chandresh Kumar Nigam, recently said that investors have to assess how the fundamental attributes of different funds have been altered in order to emphasise the maturity aspect of various financial portfolios for debt funds or large cap or mid-cap for equity funds. This should be done particularly to align with the definitions designed by the SEBI for several scheme categories. In such circumstances, the MD says that investors should evaluate if the change will result in substantial alterations. If it does, then the investor will have to ideally exit the fund and re-allot the money in some other fund.

    • Mutual funds asset base from small towns increases by 38% in 2017-18

      The mutual funds asset base from small towns has increased dramatically to Rs.4.27 lakh crore in FY18 when compared to the previous fiscal. The hike was pegged at 38%, and this was primarily due to investor awareness campaigns organised by the industry and participation from investors in the retail domain.

      The COO at Groww, an online mutual fund investment platform, stated that the improvement in the asset base can be linked to increased awareness about the industry. It also boils down to the aggressive role that mutual fund distribution platforms have played, retail investor participation, and the impact of demonetisation. Investors have gradually been shifting from traditional investments avenues such as gold and real estate to financial asset class.

      Presently, small towns (also referred to as B15 towns) account for 19% of the total assets of the mutual fund industry. 40.7% of the assets were invested directly and a significant part of the direct investments were in non-equity schemes.

    • Amtek Auto - JPMorgan’s loss is Axis Bank’s gain

      JPMorgan Mutual Fund’s purchase of Amtek Auto debt papers was made in the secondary market. Evidently these bonds were offloaded by Axis Bank. Retrospectively, Axis Bank dodged a bullet by liquidating their holdings in the troubled auto component manufacturer. JPMorgan MF on the other hand picked up these bonds, an exposure worth Rs.200 crores, through two of its schemes, the redemption of which has been restricted for investors in those schemes.

      This has raised serious doubts over the fund management processes. SEBI has already called for the books of the fund house. Investments were made in Amtek Auto in the month of January, 2015 through the JPMorgan India Treasury Fund and later a part of the allocation was shifted to the JPMorgan Short Term Income Fund.

    • Axis MF: Fixed income instruments to yield favorable returns over a 1 year term

      R Sivakumar of Axis Mutual Fund, in an interview with CNBC-TV18, indicated that fixed income would be a preferable option for returns over a one year horizon. He based his view on global economic outlooks and equity market performances, current and expected.

      He noted, however, that investors should not have lopsided exposure to fixed income products and the ideal way to maximise returns would be to have a balanced approach. This can be successfully achieved by investing in hybrid funds the aim of which is to create an optimum balance between risk and return by investing in both equity and debt.
