Chart: Equity Mutual Fund Inflows Lowest Since May 2014

The Modi government came into power at the end of May 2014, and since then Mutual Fund inflows (as in: New Investments minus redemptions) increased dramatically, perhaps because of a vibrant market and the hope of a majority government.

But in Jan 2016, the net equity inflow was the lowest since then.

MF Inflows Slow

The only solace is that they haven’t become net sellers yet. Just buying less. Given how lousy February has been so far, and if there’s an unpopular budget, that statistic could easily change. 

Note: some of the above in mid 2015 are “arbitrage” funds which are classified as equity fund investments. We haven’t removed them from the analysis because we have no accurate data of inflows and redemptions of those funds.

  • Mr. Gov says:

    This is lousy indeed. Immaterial of the number of articles out there, people are getting in at the wrong time and getting out at the wrong time too! Some things just don’t change.
