MFs log Rs 62,000-cr inflows in Aug

Thursday, September 14, 2017

Investors have pumped in close to Rs 62,000 crore into various mutual fund (MF) schemes in August, driven by equity and money market funds.

With this, total net inflow in MF schemes has risen to Rs 2.2 lakh crore in the first five months (April-August) of the ongoing fiscal, as per the latest data available with Association of Mutual Funds in India (Amfi).

"The Indian mutual fund industry has been witnessing phenomenal growth since 2014. The last three years and especially 2016 have been characterised by large inflows into equity and balanced funds, with increasing participation from retail and HNI investors," Kaustubh Belapurkar, Director Manager Research at Morningstar said.

Bajaj Capital CEO Rahul Parikh said that Indian investors have now eventually assimilated mutual funds and the credit goes to awareness programmes and endeavours by regulators and asset management companies.

According to data from Amfi, investors have poured in a net of Rs 61,701 crore in MF schemes last month as compared to Rs 63,504 crore in July.

The latest inflow has been mainly driven by contribution from liquid funds and money market funds. Besides, investors continued to maintain bullish stance on the equity schemes.
