There are a lot of investment avenues available today in the financial market for an investor with an invest able surplus. He can invest in Bank Deposits, Corporate Debentures, and Bonds where there is low risk but low return. He may invest in Stock of companies where the risk is high and the returns are also proportionately high. The recent trends in the Stock Market have shown that an average retail investor always lost with periodic bearish tends. People began opting for portfolio managers with expertise in stock markets who would invest on their behalf. Thus we had wealth management services provided by many institutions. However they proved too costly for a small investor. These investors have found a good shelter with the mutual funds. Like most developed and developing countries the mutual fund cult has been catching on in India. The reasons for this interesting occurrence are: 1. Mutual funds make it easy and less costly for investors to satisfy their need for capital growth, income and/or income preservation. 2. Mutual fund brings the benefits of diversification and money management to the individual investor, providing a Opportunity for financial success that was once available only to a select few.
Unit Trust of India is the first Mutual Fund set up under a separate act, UTI Act in 1963, and started its operations in 1964 with the issue of units under the scheme US-641. In 1978 UTI was delinked from the RBI and Industrial Development Bank of India (IDBI) took over the Regulatory and administrative control in place of RBI. In the year 1987 Public Sector banks like State Bank of India, Punjab National Bank, Indian Bank, Bank of India, and Bank of Baroda have set up mutual funds. Apart from these above mentioned banks Life Insurance Corporation [LIC] and General Insurance Corporation [GIC] too have set up mutual fund. LIC established its mutual fund in June 1989.while GIC had set up its mutual fund in December 1990.The mutual fund industry had assest under management of Rs. 47,004 crores. With the entry of Private Sector Funds a new era has started in Mutual Fund Industry [e.g:- Principal Mutual Fund.]
Mutual Fund Regulations9
The second is the UTI Mutual Fund Ltd, sponsored by SBI, PNB, BOB and LIC. It is registered with SEBI and functions under the Mutual Fund Regulations. With the bifurcation of the erstwhile UTI which had in March 2000 more than Rs.76,000 crores of assets under management and with the setting up of a UTI Mutual Fund, conforming to the SEBI Mutual Fund Regulations, and with recent mergers taking place among different private sector funds, the mutual fund industry has entered its current phase of consolidation and growth. As at the end of September, 2004, there were 29 funds, which manage assets of Rs.153108 crores under 421 schemes.

ADVANTAGES OF MUTUAL FUNDS
There are numerous benefits of investing in mutual funds and one of the key reasons for its phenomenal success in the developed markets like US and UK is the range of benefits they offer, which are unmatched by most other investment avenues.
Diversification The nuclear weapon in your arsenal for your fight against Risk. It simply means that you must spread your investment across different securities (stocks, bonds, money market instruments, real estate, fixed deposits etc.) and different sectors (auto, textile, information technology etc.). Tax Benefits Any income distributed after March 31, 2002 will be subject to tax in the assessment of all Unit holders. However, as a measure of concession to Unit holders of open-ended equity-oriented funds, income distributions for the year ending March 31, 2003, will be taxed at a concessional rate of 10.5%.
Securities Exchange Board of India (SEBI), the mutual funds regulator has clearly defined rules, which govern mutual funds. These rules relate to the formation, administration and management of mutual funds and also prescribe disclosure and accounting requirements. Such a high level of regulation seeks to protect the interest of investors Affordability A mutual fund invests in a portfolio of assets, i.e. bonds, shares, etc. depending upon the investment objective of the scheme. Azn investor can buy in to a portfolio of equities, which would otherwise be extremely expensive.
