1.1 Basic Concepts and Terms


Asset Management Company An Asset Management Company (AMC) is a highly regulated organization that pools money from investors and invests the same in a portfolio. They charge a small management fee, which is normally 1.5 per cent of the total funds managed.


Net Asset Value of the fund is the cumulative market value of the assets of the fund .NAV  per unit is simply the net value of assets divided by the number of units outstanding.


The non refundable fee paid to the Asset Management Company at the time of redemption/ transfer of units between schemes of mutual funds is termed as exit load. It is deducted from the NAV (selling price) at the time of such redemption/ transfer.


Redemption price is the price received on selling units of open-ended scheme. If the fund does not levy an exit load, the redemption price will be same as the NAV. The redemption price will be lower than the NAV in case the fund levies an exit load. Repurchase price is the price at which a close-ended scheme repurchases its units. Repurchase can either be at NAV or can have a exit load.


Risk in holding securities is generally associated with the possibility that realized returns will be less than expected returns. The difference between the required rate of returns on mutual fund investment and the risk free return is the risk premium. Risk can be measured in terms of Beta & standard deviations.
