Mutual Fund

We at Arthashastra Investment Managers Pvt Ltd are trying to explain the basic concept of Mutual funds. Mutual fund is an investing tool wherein funds are pooled from investors and invested in mutual fund companies. The funds are invested in Equity, Debt or both. The basket of securities is called Portfolio. The funds of the investor are invested in money market instruments, stocks, bonds and other types of securities. The investor holds a proportionate share in the company. Hence, we can say that investing in mutual funds is like purchasing a piece or slice of cake from the whole cake.

Every mutual fund has a prescribed objective, which is written in the prospectus  of Mutual fund scheme papers. It is to be noted that the prospectus of Mutual fund is a legal document which is written as per the regulations of   SEBI. It contains every detail about the Mutual fund scheme, right from the history to the performance.

  • Equity  Mutual fund
  • Debt (Income) Mutual fund
  • Money Market (including Gilt) Mutual fund
  • Balanced Mutual fund
