Total Assets Under Management (AUM) of the Mutual Fund industry rose 6.3% MoM, scaling new highs to reach Rs 30 trillion in Nov'20. This was primarily led by an increase in AUM of equity funds (Rs 847 billion), income funds (Rs 584 billion), and other ETF funds (INR234b), said the Fund Folio report from Motilal Oswal Financial Services.
Equity AUM (incl. ELSS and index funds) of domestic MFs increased 10.4% MoM to Rs 9 trillion in Nov'20, led by a rise in market indices (Nifty +11.4% MoM). Notably, the month saw decline in sales of equity schemes (down 18.4% MoM to INR149b). Further, the pace of redemptions picked up to INR281b (up 26.7% MoM), leading to the highest ever net outflows of INR132b in Nov'20 - the fifth consecutive month of outflows.
The total equity value of the Top-20 AMCs increased 10.1% MoM (+9.8% YoY) in Nov'20 v/s a rise of 11.4% MoM (7.6% YoY) in the Nifty.
