• What is a Mutual Fund ?

  • What is Net Asset Value (NAV) of a Mutual Fund ?

    The corpus of a Mutual Fund is broken up into a number of units. The value of each of these units (calculated daily as the total value of fund divided by the number of units) is known as the NAV of the fund.

  • What are the various structures of Mutual Funds ?

    Mutual funds are either Open ended or Closed ended. By this we mean the following:

    • Open Ended Scheme An open ended fund is open for purchase and sale of its units at NAV related prices, throughout the year.
    • Closed Ended Scheme In a closed ended mutual fund, one can invest in the fund at the time of the initial launch or purchase it later over the stock exchanges on which it is listed. Similarly, it can also be sold over the exchange. These schemes do not allow sale purchase on a continuous basis. Sometimes, the scheme also purchases its units, and then the units can be tendered by the customer.
    • Interval schemes Schemes which combine the features of open-ended and closed-ended mutual funds are called Interval schemes.
