MUTUAL FUNDS FACE 50000 CRORES OUTFLOWS


Investors pulled out a net amount of more than Rs 50,000 crore from various mutual fund schemes in July -- the highest outflow in five months. The huge pull-out of funds during July followed a net withdrawal of Rs 48,403 crore in the preceding month, taking the total outflows for two consecutive months to close to Rs one lakh crore. As per the latest data available with market regulator Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi), the net outflow of Rs 50,067 crore during July was the highest withdrawal by investors in mutual fund (MF) schemes in a single month since March, when investors had redeemed Rs 1.08 lakh crore. This has left the MFs' net mobilisation of funds from investors so far in the current fiscal (April-July) at about Rs 45,539 crore. Mutual fund is an investment vehicle that is made up of a pool of funds collected from many investors for the purpose of investing in securities such as stocks, bonds, money market instruments and similar assets. At gross level, mutual funds mobilised Rs 7.8 lakh crore in July, but also witnessed redemption worth Rs 8.27 lakh crore -- resulting into a net outflow of Rs 50,067 crore. This has brought down the total assets under management of mutual funds to Rs 7.6 lakh crore as on July 31, from Rs 8.11 lakh crore in the previous month. The BSE's benchmark Sensex plunged by 232 points, or 1.2 per cent, during the period under review. "During the financial year 2013-14 so far (April-July), mutual funds net mobilised Rs 45,539 crore as compared to Rs 1,33,976 crore mobilised in corresponding period of 2012-13," Sebi noted. In the entire fiscal 2012-13, mutual funds had garnered Rs 76,539 crore from investors while a net amount of over Rs 22,000 crore moved out of the mutual funds' kitty during the preceding year.

NIFTY EARNINGS FLAT IN 2018

UBS Cautious Note

Projecting zero returns from the Nifty, Swiss brokerage UBS has projected a 10 per cent cut in its index target at 10,500 for calendar 2018, even as it remains positive over the long-term. "Top-down, we forecast Nifty earnings growth will recover from 9 per cent in fiscal 2018 to 13 per cent in 2019, but driven largely by financials," the brokerage said in a report.
