    • Mutual fund investors are selling their investments in equity mutual funds and they are not in a hurry to invest in equities anymore, shows Amfi data.

      Equity mutual fund investors have once again started feeling confident of about their investments, say mutual fund advisors. With most equity mutual fund categories posting double-digit returns in the three-month period, these investors believe that their schemes may be on their way to recovery.

      The key stock market indices may be on an upswing, but most mutual fund investors haven't seen any meaningful returns from their investments in the last few years.

      Are dynamic asset allocation funds or balanced advantage funds losing their charm among investors and advisors? Sure, some fund houses may be still marketing them as a one-stop-solution to conservative equity investors, but many advisors and investors have started questioning the rationale behind these schemes lately.

      Benchmark indices saw their worst decline in March 2020, falling by more than 20%, on the heels of COVID-19 being declared as a pandemic by the World Health Organisation (WHO). However, even the most optimistic investors haven’t expected such a remarkable turnaround, so early.

      “In times such as these, the importance of financial planning and financializing savings cannot be over-emphasized. Interest rates in India appear to have turned decisively lower and prudent investments that help generate long-term wealth need to be accorded top priority,” says Badshah.

      "Mirae Asset Hybrid Equity Fund has an envious track record in five years of its existence. The scheme has offered good five- year rolling returns and good downside protection. That means it has given decent risk-adjusted returns over the years."

      The pace in new SIP accounts improved marginally to 11 lakh in July from 9.1 lakh in the previous month. But, higher discontinuation reduced the overall monthly growth in the outstanding SIP accounts to 1.2 per cent in July 2020.

      An equity mutual fund invests mostly in equity or stocks. In India, a mutual fund scheme must invest at least 65% of its corpus in Indian stocks or equity and equity-related investments to be treated as an equity mutual fund for the purpose of taxation.
