So, let’s start with the basics.

What is the mutual fund scheme meaning?

You see, a mutual fund is an investment vehicle that is professionally managed by a “fund manager”.

An asset management company managed investment for investors, both individual and institutional..

The AMC collects money from them, pools it and then invests it in equity, bonds or other securities, as the fund manager deems fit as per the objective of the scheme.

Based on the investment objective of the fund, the money is invested by the fund manager.

For example, Equity-oriented scheme, Debtoriented scheme, Sector-specific schemes etc.

This should make mutual fund scheme meaning clear to you.

The next thing we think an investor must know is what a mutual fund scheme is made up of.

As per the objective of the scheme, a mutual fund scheme is made up of equity or bonds or other securities or a combination of these.

Based on the objective of the scheme, the fund manager decides how much money goes in which type of investment.

So, the pooled money is invested in the underlying securities and together is what a mutual fund scheme is made up of.

Now that you know what a mutual fund scheme is made up of and also the mutual fund meaning, it is imperative to know how to look at a mutual fund scheme performance.

To put it simply, if you have decided to invest in a mutual fund scheme, you must first understand the mutual fund scheme’s performance.

Look at the following factors:

a. Compare the scheme’s performance against its benchmark
b. Look at the scheme’s history of how it has performed in troubled markets
c. Compare the scheme’s risk-adjusted returns with other schemes
d. Look at the expense ratio

With the above factors, you can get a better view of the mutual fund scheme performance.

You can also use a mutual fund scheme return calculator for getting an estimate you can expect from investing in a mutual fund scheme.

The mutual fund scheme return calculator is a simple tool, it is a simulation.

It needs you to enter the type of investment you are planning – lumpsum or SIP, the amount to invest, your expected rate of return and the time period which you want to stay invested for.

Once you enter all this, the mutual fund scheme return calculator will give you an estimate of the value of your investments on desired timelines.

Another thing you should know about is NAV.

After all, one of the factors for selection of a mutual fund scheme is based on NAV.

Net Asset Value (NAV) is basically the market value of all securities under a mutual fund scheme.

NAV, in layman terms, is the money you have to pay to buy units of a mutual fund scheme.

Hence in the broader sense the indicator of the performance of a mutual fund scheme is based on NAV increase or decrease.

All in all, all the above points that we have discussed in this article can together be called as “mutual fund scheme analysis”.

You must have run a complete mutual fund scheme analysis before you decide to invest in a particular scheme.

We believe you are now well informed about the factors to consider before investing in mutual fund schemes.

To conclude, this article covered about mutual fund scheme performance, what a mutual fund scheme is made up of, what is mutual fund scheme meaning, how to use the mutual fund scheme return calculator, how mutual fund scheme is based on nav and the overall mutual fund scheme analysis.
