Key Take-Aways
  • Some segments of distribution may reduce focus on MFs due to stoppage of upfronting - however investor demand is not impacted by these regulations

  • MFs have acquired legitimacy in smaller towns - for the first time ever. This will continue to drive long term demand, despite market fluctuations

  • SIP flows continue to be strong despite market volatility - which is very encouraging. Domestic flows will help sustain MF industry's secular growth story

  • Business profitability is under pressure - in distribution and manufacturing. Cycle in terms of margins has turned down, but remains strong in terms of volumes

  • Extent to which AMCs step up investor communication amidst market volatility will determine how much we can minimize reduction of flows

Having spent 15 years as a distributor with unflinching conviction across market cycles and regulatory onslaughts, with over 600 cr of AUM, am now losing conviction in the industry due to the deteriorating fund management (much of the industry in unable to beat their benchmarks) and the high headedness of AMCs to accept lapses and take corrective measures to protect the investor (The Aditya Birla Real Estate Fund is the latest example)
