'MF equity interest hits record high in July'

Thursday, August 10, 2017

Total equity inflows into domestic mutual funds rose to all time high of Rs 18,200 crore in July, indicating the 'financialisation' of savings cycle in India, says a Deutsche Bank report. According to the global financial services major, July was a historic month for Indian equities, with total equity inflows (equity plus equity-linked savings schemes plus equity component of balanced funds) into domestic mutual funds rising to an all-time high of Rs 18,200 crore or USD 2.8 billion.

"The accelerating momentum of inflows into the equity schemes of mutual funds indicates that the financialisation of the domestic savings cycle in India – which began in earnest in 2014 – is becoming deeply entrenched," Deutsche Bank said in a research note.

The report further said the rising component of Systematic Investment Plans (SIPs) in total monthly inflows underscores how significantly the profile of Indian savings is shifting towards equity investments. Moreover, domestic mutual funds' ownership of BSE 500 companies rose from a low of 3% in March 2014 to 6% as of June 2017.

"We view this as a constructive development, as it incrementally reduces the vulnerability of Indian equities to external developments and also reduces the cost of capital for domestic companies," the report noted.

It added however that at 11%, the absolute holding of domestic mutual funds and domestic insurance companies remains significantly lower than that of Foreign Institutional Investors at 21%.
