Further, analysts expect the mutual industry’s assets under management (AUM) to grow by 11-13% in the next five years to ₹57 trillion and Aditya Birla Sun Life AMC to benefit from strong industry prospects given it is among the top five players in the country.

The mutual fund company is the fourth fund house to get listed on exchanges. So far, HDFC AMC, Nippon Life India AMC and UTI AMC are listed.
