Mutual Fund, Average Return, Standard Deviation, Beta, Alpha, Coefficient of Determination.


A mutual fund is a trust that encompasses the savings of a number of investors who share a common financial goal. The money thus collected is then invested in capital market instruments such as shares, debentures and other securities. The income earned through these investments and the capital appreciation realized is shared by its unit holders in proportion to the number of units owned by them. Thus, Mutual Fund is one of the most effective instruments for the small & medium investors for investment and offers opportunity to them to participate in capital market with low level of risk. It also provides the facility of diversification i.e. investors can invest across different types of schemes. Indian Mutual Fund has achieved a lot of popularity since last two decades.
