Many individuals own mutual funds today. To a large extent, mutual funds are the investment vehicle for the majority of households in the India.
In the introductory chapter, I have consider the role of mutual fund in today’s investing environment, learn just how popular mutual funds have become and consider why investors have chosen to put so much money into funds. Clearly, mutual funds are a major financial asset for numerous investors, and in many ways they play the dominant role in today’s investing world for millions of households.
I have mainly focused up on the study that which company’s mutual investments are mostly preferable by investors. Today investors are becoming rational & they see all the parameters before investing. The overall objective of my study on this project is to know which company provides better investment opportunities (from HDFC & ICICI) and make the investors to be able to take better decisions .Of course, as every study needs, I’d adopted an objective view of overall situation that examines both sides of the issue in HDFC & ICICI.
What is mean by mutual fund?
Mutual funds are pools of money that are managed by an investment company. They offer investors a variety of goals, depending on the fund and its investment charter. Some funds, for example, seek to generate income on a regular basis. Others seek to preserve an investor's money. Still others seek to invest in companies that are growing at a rapid pace. Funds can impose a sales charge, or load, on investors when they buy or sell shares. Many funds these days are no load and impose no sales charge. Mutual funds are investment companies regulated by the Investment Company Act of 1940.
