Mutual funds are a mechanism for pooling the resources of different investors and investing the collected funds in accordance with specific objectives, in securities so as to realise the investment objective. The investment objective is based largely upon the investors’ capacity to take risk.The profits or losses are shared by the investors in proportion to their investments. The mutual funds normally come out with a number of schemes with different investment objectives which are launched from time to time.
The concept of pooling money for investment purposes started in the mid 1800s in Europe.The first pooled fund in the U.S. was created in 1893 for the faculty and staff of Harvard University.On March 21st 1924 three securities executives from Boston pooled their money to create the first mutual fund in the world known as the Massachusets Investors Trust. Unit Trust of India was the first mutual fund to be set up in India in the year 1963. In early 1990s, Government allowed public sector banks and institutions to set up mutual funds. It was at this time that LIC Mutual Fund came into existence.
