Top-performing Equity Mutual Funds: As of August 31, 2023, the Assets under Management (AUM) of the Indian mutual fund industry reached Rs 46,63 lakh crore, up from Rs 39,33 lakh crore as of August 31, 2022. According to data analysed by rating agency Icra Analytics, the industry’s average assets under management (AAUM) increased to Rs 46,93 lakh crore for the month of August 2023 from Rs 39,53 lakh crore in August 2022.

“At the present level, the industry is almost halfway to its goal of reaching Rs 100 lakh crore in AUM over the next few years. The growth in AUM is supported by investors’ optimism in the wake of India’s successful hosting of the G20 summit, the country’s robust growth prospects going forward, and positive global cues, according to Icra.

According to data released by the Association of Mutual Funds in India (AMFI) on Monday, net inflows into equity-oriented schemes reached a five-month high of Rs 20,245 crore in August, up from Rs 7626 crore in July of this year.

“Equity saw inflows as a result of a slight dip in the Nifty during the month of August, which also served as a consolidation point and an excellent opportunity for value picks. In addition, the trend of increasing individual investor inflows has been on the rise. Lastly, India’s comparative advantage following China’s slowdown and Russia’s marginalisation lead to increased inflows. Icra asserts that India’s development prospects remain favourable.
