Indian Mutual Funds: Record equity inflows & ₹61.16 lakh crore AUM in June 2024


The Indian Mutual Fund industry remains on a positive trajectory, driven by consistent SIP inflows and growing investor confidence in equity markets. The industry’s ability to weather market volatility and offer diverse investment options positions it as a key player in wealth creation for Indian investors.

SIPs, a popular method for regular investment, continued to drive growth, with the number of new SIPs reaching 55.13 lakh and total SIP AUM reaching an all-time high of ₹12.44 lakh crore. Sectoral/Thematic funds led inflows with ₹22,351 crore, boosted by new fund offerings (NFOs). Multicap, Large cap, and Mid cap funds also saw significant inflows, while Small cap funds experienced a decline. June witnessed initial volatility due to election results, with benchmark indices dropping sharply before recovering and closing the month with a gain of around 7%. Debt funds, excluding money market and low-duration funds, saw net outflows attributed to advance tax payments and quarter-end activities.
