“Accommodative credit policy stance, continuous global liquidity flows, coupled with improved economic sentiment driven by healthier corporate earnings and positive GDP growth forecast has led to Indian Mutual Fund Industry AUMs crossing historic highs and touching highest ever INR 30 lakh crore landmark,” said N.S.

“Investors are aligning their allocation in Debt schemes more towards duration schemes and corporate bond funds to maximize their debt returns, and on the other hand booking their profits in equity funds owing to surge in equity valuations. It is also significant to note that there has been a healthy addition of 3.39 lakh SIP accounts.”
