FAQ On Mutual Fund:

A Mutual Fund is a corporate body that pools the savings of a number of investors and invests the same in a variety of different financial instruments, or securities. The income earned through these investments and the capital appreciation realised by the scheme are shared by its unit holders or investors in proportion to the number of units owned by them. Mutual funds can thus be considered as financial intermediaries in the investment business, who collect funds from the public and invest on behalf of the investors. The losses and gains accrue to the investors only. The Investment objectives outlined by a Mutual Fund in its prospectus are binding on the Mutual Fund scheme. The investment objectives specify the class of securities a Mutual Fund can invest in. Mutual Funds invest in various asset classes like equity, bonds, debentures, commercial paper and government securities.

An Asset Management Company (AMC) is a highly regulated organization that pools money from investors and invests the same in a portfolio. They charge a small fee for fund management..

NAV or Net Asset Value of the fund is the cumulative market value of the assets of the fund net of its liabilities. NAV per unit is simply the net value of assets divided by the number of units outstanding. Buying and selling into funds is done on the basis of NAV-related prices. NAV is calculated as follows:

NAV= Market value of the fund's investments + Receivables + Accrued Income – Liabilities - Accrued Expenses The performance of a particular scheme of a mutual fund is denoted by Net Asset Value (NAV) and it varies on daily basis. For example, if the market value of securities of a mutual fund scheme is Rs 200 lakhs and the mutual fund has issued 10 lakhs units of Rs. 10 each to the investors, then the NAV per unit of the fund is Rs.20.

NAV is required to be disclosed by the mutual funds on a regular basis – on all business days or weekly – depending on the type of scheme. As per SEBI Regulations, the NAV of a scheme shall be calculated and published at least in two daily newspapers at intervals not exceeding one week. The NAVs are also available on the websites of mutual funds. All mutual funds are also required to put their NAVs on the website of Association of Mutual Funds in India (AMFI) and thus the investors can access NAVs of all mutual funds at one place.

Equity Funds/ Growth Funds: Funds that invest in equity shares are called equity funds. They carry the principal objective of capital appreciation of the investment over the medium to long-term. The returns in such funds are volatile since they are directly linked to the stock markets. They are best suited for investors who are seeking capital appreciation. There are different types of equity funds such as Diversified funds, Sector specific funds and Index based funds.

Diversified Funds: These funds invest in companies spread across sectors. These funds are generally meant for risk-taking investors who are not bullish about any particular sector.

Sector Funds: These funds invest primarily in equity shares of companies in a particular business sector or industry. These funds are targeted at investors who are extremely bullish about a particular sector.

Index Funds: These funds invest in the same pattern as popular market indices like S&P 500 and BSE Index. The value of the index fund varies in proportion to the benchmark index.

Tax Saving Funds: These funds offer tax benefits to investors under the Income Tax Act. Opportunities provided under this scheme are in the form of tax rebates U/s 88 as well saving in Capital.

Debt / Income Funds: These Funds invest predominantly in high-rated fixed-income-bearing instruments like bonds, debentures, government securities, commercial paper and other money market instruments. They are best suited for the medium to long-term investors who are averse to risk and seek

Liquid Funds / Money Market Funds: These funds invest in highly liquid money market instruments. The period of investment could be as short as a day. They provide easy liquidity. They have emerged as an alternative for savings and short-term fixed deposit accounts with comparatively higher returns. These funds are ideal for Corporates, institutional investors and business houses who invest their funds for very short periods.

Gilt Funds: These funds invest in Central and State Government securities. Since they are Government backed bonds they give a secured return and also ensure safety of the principal amount. They are best suited for the medium to long-term investors who are averse to risk.

Balanced Funds: These funds invest both in equity shares and fixed-income-bearing instruments (debt) in some proportion. They provide a steady return and reduce the volatility of the fund while providing some upside for capital appreciation. They are ideal for medium- to long-term investors willing to take moderate risks.

Hedge Funds: These funds adopt highly speculative trading strategies. They hedge risks in order to increase the value of the portfolio.

Qualified and experienced professionals manage Mutual Funds. Generally, investors, by themselves, may have reasonable capability, but to assess a financial instrument, a professional analytical approach is required in addition to access to research and information, time and methodology to make sound investment decisions.

Since Mutual Funds make investments in a number of stocks, the resultant diversification reduces risk. They provide the small investors with an opportunity to invest in a larger basket of securities.

The investor is spared the time and effort of tracking investments, collecting income, etc. from various issuers, etc.

It is possible to invest in small amounts as and when the investor has surplus funds to invest.

Mutual Funds are well regulated & governed by SEBI (Mutual Funds) Regulations, 1996 thereby ensuring transparency of investments.

In case of open-ended funds, the investment is very liquid as it can be redeemed at any time with the fund, unlike direct investment in stocks/bonds.

Mutual Funds unlike fixed deposit, Bonds and other Government securities do not provide guarantee of returns. Their returns are directly related to the performance of the underlying asset in which they invest like shares, debentures etc which are known for the risk associated with them. The unit value may vary with the performance of the company, and companies may default in payment of interest/principal on their debentures/bonds/deposits. In addition to these, changes in macro level policies & regulations may also affect sectors in Indian economy thereby affecting mutual fund performance.

The non refundable fee paid to the Asset Management Company at the time of purchase of mutual fund units is termed as Entry Load. Entry Load is added to the NAV (purchase price) when you are purchasing Mutual Fund units.

The non refundable fee paid to the Asset Management Company at the time of redemption/ transfer of units between schemes of mutual funds is termed as exit load. It is deducted from the NAV(selling price) at the time of such redemption/ transfer. Exit load is not a standard charge; it varies from scheme to scheme depending upon the type & objective of the scheme. The funds which do not charge exit loads are known as 'No Load Funds'

Purchase price is the price paid by you to purchase a unit of a mutual fund scheme. If the fund levies an entry load, then the purchase price would be equal to the sum of the NAV and the entry load levied.

Redemption price is the price received on selling units of open-ended scheme. If the fund does not levy an exit load, the redemption price will be same as the NAV. The redemption price will be lower than the NAV in case the fund levies an exit load.

Yes. The tax applicable is called as STT i.e. Security transaction tax which is 0.25%. STT is applicable only in case of redemption of equity linked schemes.

Repurchase price is the price at which a close-ended scheme repurchases its units. Repurchase can either be at NAV or can have an exit load.

Some Mutual Funds provide the investor with an option to shift his investment from one scheme to another within that fund. For this option the fund may levy a switching fee. Switching allows the Investor to alter the allocation of their investment among the schemes in order to meet their changed investment needs, risk profiles or changing circumstances during their lifetime.

Systematic Investment Plan (SIP) means an option available with the Customer for investing, at a specified frequency, in a specified Scheme of the Fund, a fixed amount of Rupees for purchasing additional units at the applicable NAV on a specified date, assuming that the provisions of the Offer Document of the respective Scheme shall always be applicable for SIP transactions.

Systematic Transfer Plan (STP) means an option available with the customer who holds Units to transfer a pre determined amount or a variable amount subject to deduction of tax, if any, at a specified frequency, from a specified Scheme of the fund to another specific scheme of the fund at a specified period at a specified frequency at the applicable NAV on a specified date, assuming that the provisions of the Offer document of the respective Schemes shall always be applicable for STP transactions.

There is no lock-in period in the case of open-ended funds. However in the case of tax saving funds a minimum lock-in period is applicable. The lock-in period for different tax saving schemes are as follows:

Section Minimum lock-in period
U/s 88 3 yrs.
U/s 54EA 3 yrs.
U/s 54EB 3 yrs.

The performances of Mutual funds are influenced by the performance of the stock market as well as the economy as a whole. Equity Funds are influenced to a large extent by the stock market. The stock market in turn is influenced by the performance of the companies as well as the economy as a whole. The performance of the sector funds depends to a large extent on the companies within that sector. Bond-funds are influenced by interest rates and credit quality. As interest rates rise, bond prices fall, and vice versa. Similarly, bond funds with higher credit ratings are less influenced by changes in the economy.
