Mutual Fund

Mutual fund is a trust that pools money from a group of investors (sharing common financial goals) and invest the money thus collected into asset classes that match the stated investment objectives of the scheme. Since the stated investment objectives of a mutual fund scheme generally forms the basis for an investor’s decision to contribute money to the pool, a mutual fund can not deviate from its stated objectives at any point of time. Every Mutual Fund is managed by a fund manager, who using his investment management skills and necessary research works ensures much better return than what an investor can manage on his own. The capital appreciation and other incomes earned from these investments are passed on to the investors (also known as unit holders) in proportion of the number of units they own.

When an investor subscribes for the units of a mutual fund, he becomes part owner of the assets of the fund in the same proportion as his contribution amount put up with the corpus (the total amount of the fund). Mutual Fund investor is also known as a mutual fund shareholder or a unit holder. Any change in the value of the investments made into capital market instruments (such as shares, debentures etc) is reflected in the Net Asset Value (NAV) of the scheme. NAV is defined as the market value of the Mutual Fund scheme’s assets net of its liabilities. NAV of a scheme is calculated by dividing the market value of scheme’s assets by the total number of units issued to the investors. For example:

  • If the market value of the assets of a fund is Rs 100,000
  • The total number of units issued to the investors is equal to 10,000
  • Then the NAV of this scheme = (A)/(B) i.e. 100,000/10,000 or 10.0
  • Now if an investor ’X’ own 5 units of this scheme
  • Then his total contribution to the fund is Rs. 50(i.e. Number of units held multiplied by the NAV of the scheme)
