Mutual Fund Rankings June 2001

Jun 18, 2001

Our rankings for the month of June 2001 have thrown up results similar to May 2001 rankings. Growth funds continue to be in the doldrums, with income funds showing the resilience and reliability which they have been associated with over the years. Growth funds reflect the mood prevalent in equity markets, which has been very negative. With equity markets still showing weakness, fund managers had a testing time trying to keep their heads (and their funds) above water. This month too, Grandmaster 1993, BOINANZA and Templeton Growth were in the lead in the Open-ended Growth category.

Income funds have made the proverbial hay as growth funds get the boot from investors. With interest rates expected to remain at this level if not lower, bond yields are lower and income fund managers are having an easier time as compared to their growth fund counterparts. PNB Debt Fund, KP Children Asset and K Bond Wholesale are the leaders in this category.

OPEN-ENDED, GROWTH FUNDS NAV(Rs) 12-MONTHS
GRANDMASTER 1993 8.5 -6.3%

Even balanced funds have not been spared the ignominy as their equity components have taken a hit. Funds are now increasing their fixed income allocations to as a hedge against volatility in equity markets.

Tax-saving funds (ELSS) have also been a victim of the depression in equity markets. investors who are looking for benefits under section 88 (rebate) need to examine the systematic investment plan (SIP) route and accumulate at lower levels.
