Among mutual funds with more than 1000 Crores of AUM in Dec 2019, Axis Small Cap has registered the biggest AUM growth of 35% from Dec 31st 2019 to Jan 31st 2020 during a time when its NAV moved up by 8.4%. Here is the full list of AUM and NAV movement during this period for equity funds.

Investors should keep an eye on small cap and mid cap AUM especially when there are signs of market recovery.  Funds associated with banks can see a big leap in AUM during such periods. The featured image above shows the percentage increase in AUM (vertical axis) vs the percentage NAV increase from end-Dec 2019 to end-Jan 2020 for equity mutual funds with an initial AUM of Rs. 1000 Crores or more.

When mid and small cap funds register significant AUM growth over a short span in time, their performance could suffer. They may also place restrictions on lump sum investing. This article only presents the data. There is no need for investors to take any action on this.

Most investor problems can be traced to a lack of informed decision making. We have all made bad decisions and money mistakes when we started earning and spent years undoing these mistakes. Why should our children go through the same pain? What is this book about? As parents, if we had to groom one ability in our children that is key not only to money management and investing but for any aspect of life, what would it be? My answer: Sound Decision Making. So in this book, we meet Chinchu, who is about to turn 10. What he wants for his birthday and how his parent’s plan for it and teach him several key ideas of decision making and money management is the narrative. What readers say!
