Equity mutual fund inflows slowed down in October – coming in at ₹9,390 crore as against ₹14,099 crore in September, according to AMFI, the regulatory body for the mutual funds sector. Large-cap, smallcap, midcap and thematic funds were the main contributors to the inflows last month.

Meanwhile, debt mutual funds continued to see an outflow – amounting to ₹2,817 crore in October.

On the bright side, SIP contribution in October crossed ₹13,000 crore compared to ₹12,976 crore in the previous month.

In October, mutual funds deployed ₹6,300 crore into the markets and this is in tune with what foreign institutional investors (FIIs) bought for the month – ₹7,600 crore in the Indian secondary market, said a report by Nuvama Institutional Equities (previously known as Edelweiss Institutional Equities).

“Markets continue to react to the global factors and domestic rate hikes. However, mutual fund investors have shown resilience and continue to invest in SIPs, with consistent contribution month on month. There is growth in overall equity AUM (assets under management) and Folios too,” N S Venkatesh, chief executive officer at AMFI said in a statement on November 10.

The stocks that mutual funds bought into for the month include IndusInd Bank and Reliance Industries. The stocks where fund houses trimmed holdings include Axis Bank, Coal India, and HCL Tech among others, as per Nuvama.

Meanwhile, net assets under management (AUM) of the mutual fund industry stands at ₹39.50 lakh crore as on October 31, 2022.

Currently, strong FII inflows, especially in November, have boosted the benchmark indices Sensex and the Nifty50 to near their all-time highs of 62,245.43 and 18,600, respectively.

“While the near-term performance of the market is likely to be led by flows, we expect muted returns from the market over the next one year,” said a report by BNP Paribas.
