The third spot is occupied by Reliance Mutual Fund with an AUM of Rs 28,753.79 crore (Rs 287.53 billion), which saw its total assets grew by Rs 2,534.49 crore (Rs 25.34 billion) in August.

The biggest loser in August was HSBC Mutual Fund. During the month, its AUM fell by Rs 528.05 crore (Rs 5.28 billion) from Rs 11,212.43 crore (Rs 112.12 billion) in July to Rs 10,684.38 crore (Rs 106.84 billion) in August-end.
