Growth fund NAVs witness freefall

Oct 13, 2000

The repercussions of the current market slump can be felt, rather seen, in the net asset values (NAVs) of diversified growth funds. With equity markets heading southwards fast, fund managers aren't exactly having the time of their lives. As highlighted by us yesterday, they are being to forced to sell stocks at lower levels to meet redemption requests.

The impact of the market slide on growth fund NAVs has been significant. This is more than evident from the table below. Observe the fall in NAVs over the last week, and one begins to understand why growth fund investors are feeling jittery.
