SUMMARY
Mutual funds pool money from different investors and invest in different investment
sources like stocks, shares, bonds etc. A professional fund manager manages these and
returns are paid in form of dividends. Some schemes assured fixed returns that are less in
risk and some offer dividends based on the market fluctuations and prices.
Mutual funds have to be subscribed in units and the purchase or sale is dependent on
NAV (Net Asset Value), taking into consideration the exit and entry load factors into
account.
This project undertaken deals with customer perception with regard to mutual funds
that is the schemes they prefer, the plans they are opting, the reasons behind such
selections and also this project dealt with different investment options, which people
prefer along with and apart from mutual funds. Like postal saving schemes, recurring
deposits, bonds, and shares.
The findings from this project is that most of the people are hesitant in going for new
age investments like mutual funds and prefer to avert risks by investing in less riskier
investment options like recurring deposits and so. Also people going for investment in
mutual funds are not going for high-risk portfolios and schemes but want to go for
medium risk elements. And another finding is that most of the workingwomen does not
prefer this type of investments
