Even after the split, UTI Mutual Fund continues to hold the largest market share of 14.47 per cent closely followed by ICICI Prudential, HDFC Standard Life and Templeton in the over Rs 1,00,000 crore (Rs 1,000 billion) industry.
In terms of growth, Standard Chartered Mutual Fund topped the list posting an inflow of Rs 1,056.22 crore (Rs 10.56 billion) outsmarting larger funds like Templeton, Birla Sunlife, DSP Merrill Lynch and Tata Mutual fund, according to the fund net assets review for July.
UTI MF retained its dominant position with Rs 16,388.17 crore (Rs 163.88 billion) worth of assets under management capturing 14.47 per cent of the market share.
