MUTUAL FUNDS
Introduction
The first investment trust established in Scotland by Robert Fleming and the first mutual fund of the world The Massachusetts Investors Trust open-ended scheme was launched in Boston, USA in 1924. It was 40 years later that the mutual fund institution, namely the Unit Trust of India was established in India in 1964 and awareness about it, has only been since late 1980s. As of date in US alone there are 5000 MUTUAL FUNDs with the total assets over $3 billion. The Mutual Fund is the ideal investment vehicle for todays complex financial scenario. Markets for equity shares, bonds and other fixed income instrument, real estate, derivatives and other asset have become information driven. Mutual funds are comparatively better option for investment due to various benefits. First benefit is that investors funds are properly managed by fund manager who has wide experience in capital market. Also with proper management of funds returns on mutual fund schemes are maintained. The liquidity option, which is the main investment attribute, can also chosen according to ones investment objective and need. The mutual fund industry is growing at a faster pace. In future mutual fund will be a better option for retail investors who want to invest their money in capital market. Bank deposits and insurance investments have lock-in periods and so retail investors can have another option for investment i.e. Mutual Fund where investor can get liquidity with satisfactory returns.

JVIMS-JAMNAGAR

31

THE INVESTMENT OPTIONS


In India the investor has wide variety of investment options available to him. Economic well being in the long run depends significantly on how wisely he invests. Every investment options has two main aspects i.e. risk and return. The investor has the choice of investment in capital markets of the country and also in financial institution of the country like Banks and Insurance companies. The various tools of investment available to investor are as follows -: Equity Shares Bank Deposits Investment in Debt Market Post Office Savings Government Securities Life Insurance Real Estate National Saving Certificate (NSC) Kishan Vikas Patra (KVP) Mutual Fund Schemes

The investor can invest in any of the above investment tool depending on his investment objective and need. Generally in India the investor prefer to invest in banks and in post office savings account. But in last few years the trend have changed and investors are moving towards capital markets.

JVIMS-JAMNAGAR

32

INVESTMENT ATTRIBUTES
Rate of Return The rate of return is an very important aspect of the investment tool. The rate of return is high in equity markets and it is low in post office savings and bank deposits. It means the more riskier the instrument the more the return will be. Risk The rate of return from investments like equity shares, real estate, etc varies rather widely. The risk of an investment refers to the variability of its rate of return. Bank deposits, post office savings, investment in debt market are less risky and have fixed return. Liquidity An investment is highly liquid if: a) b) c) It can be transacted quickly The transaction cost is low The price change between two successive transactions is negligible

The liquidity of market may be judged in terms of its depth, breadth, and resilience. Depth refers to the existence of buy as well as sells orders around the current market price. Breadth implies the presence of such orders in substantial volume. Resilience means that new orders emerge in response to price changes. High marketability is desirable characteristics and low marketability is an undesirable characteristic.

JVIMS-JAMNAGAR

33

Tax Benefits Some investments provide tax benefits, other does not. Tax benefits are of three kinds: Initial tax benefit, Continuing tax benefit and Terminal tax benefit. Initial tax benefit refers to the relief enjoyed at the time of making the investment. Continuing tax benefit represents the tax shield associated with the periodic returns from the investment e.g. Insurance, bank interest, etc. Terminal tax benefit refers to relief from taxation when an investment is realized or liquidated. Convenience Convenience broadly refers to the ease with which the investment can be made and looked after. Ready availability of investment and easy monitoring of investment can judge convenience. The degree of convenience associated with investments varies widely. On one hand there is deposit in savings bank account that can be readily available and does not require maintenance effort. On the other hand is purchase of real estate that may involve a lot of procedural and legal hassles at the time of acquisition and a great deal of maintenance effort subsequently.

INSURANCE PLANNING:

Insurance is not for the person who passes away, it for those who survive," goes a popular saying that explains the importance of Insurance Planning Insurance Planning is concerned with ensuring adequate coverage against insurable risks. Calculating the right level of risk cover is a specialized activity, requiring considerable expertise. Proper Insurance Planning can help you look at the possibility of getting a wider coverage for the same amount of premium or the same level of coverage for the same amount of premium or the same level of coverage for a reduced premium. Hence, the need for proper insurance planning.

CHILDRENS FUTURE PLANNING: Every parent wishes to watch their child grow. All parents want to give the best possible upbringing to their children. This includes good education and security, in case of any eventuality. Soon, your little bundle of joy will grow up, and it will be time to provide for his or her higher education and wedding. The purpose of Children's Future Planning is to create a corpus for foreseeable expenditures such as those on higher education and wedding, and to provide for an adequate security cover during their growing years.

TAX PLANNING: Proper tax planning is a basic duty of every person which should be carried out religiously. Basically, there are three steps in tax planning exercise. These three steps in tax planning are: 1. Calculate your taxable income under all heads i.e., Income from Salary, House Property, Business & Profession, Capital Gains and Income from Other Sources. 2. Calculate tax payable on gross taxable income for whole financial year (i.e., from 1st April to 31st March) using a simple tax rate table, given on next page.

SHORT TERM CASH FLOW PLANNING: In simple terms, cash flow refers to the inflow and outflow of money. It is a record of your income and expenses. Though these sounds simple, very few people actually take the time out to find out what comes in and what goes out of their hands each month. Cash flow planning refers to the process of identifying the major expenditures in future (both short-term and long-term) and making planned investments so that the required amount is accumulated within the required time frame. Cash flow planning is the first thing that should be done prior to starting an investment exercise, because only then will you be in a position to know how your finances look like, and what is it that you can invest without causing a strain on yourself. It will also enable you to understand if a particular investment matches with your flow requirement. JVIMS-JAMNAGAR 42

The objectives of SEBI are to protect the interest of investors in securities and to promote the development of and to regulate the securities market.

Thereafter, Mutual Funds sponsored by private sector entities were allowed to enter the capital market. The regulations were fully revised in 1996 and have been amended thereafter from time to time. SEBI has also issued guidelines to the Mutual Funds from time to time to protect the interests of investors. Before starting an AMC the sponsor has to register it with the SEBI. Any changes into the philosophy or investment pattern in the Company, should be reported to SEBI.

Problem Formulation
Problem is any hurdle or barrier or area, which requires inquiry. Research Problem is an issue for which the whole procedure is carried on. Today competition and markets both have expanded. The company every now and then cannot afford to undertake research activities as research involves huge cost. The companies undertake research activities when it perceives that something is going wrong or theyre in lack of information to solve a particular problem. In such cases only company undertakes research activities. The research activity is totally dependent on managerial problem and research objective. Research has been done to find out the brand awareness of Bajaj Capital Ltd.. The data was collected with the help of questionnaire. The main focus of research was to study brand awareness among Individual Financial Agents as most of the business done by the company is with Individual Agents only.

Research Methodology
Research Design
The research design acts as intermediary between research objective and actual research done. The research design tells how data will be collected and from where it will be collected. Also clarification is made on the analysis and interpretation of data. The research design in the project is exploratory design. The data are analyzed and based on the data suggestions are given.

Sources of Data
Data has to be collected from the right source so as to serve the purpose of the research. Data are collected as per the requirement of the research project. There are two main sources of data i.e. Primary source Secondary source The primary source means the data are collected for the first time directly from the sample or population as per the requirement. The secondary source is the source already collected by other researcher, information available from newspaper, magazines, journals, etc. The source of data for project is primary source. The data is collected for the first time to study the comparison of mutual fund and the Unique Linked Insurance Plan of the Bajaj Capital.

Sampling Design
It is not possible to study the whole population every time in a research project. The study of whole population requires lot time and money. So most of the research is done by choosing samples from the population. Sample survey involves less cost and can give accurate results if sampling plan is designed properly. The Sampling Design consists of following-: Sampling Unit Sampling Size Sampling Method Sampling unit. Sample size Investors of JAMNAGAR city. I have taken sample size 100 due to time constraints.

Data Collection Method


Data collection is a critical part of whole research project. It data are not collected properly then the whole project would fail to give accurate results and will not serve the purpose of the study. So proper method has to be used to collect the data systematically. The various methods of data collection are as follows-: Observation Method Survey Method In Observation Method the units under study are observed and the behaviors of them are noted down under various conditions. This method gives very accurate results but requires a very skillful observer. The other method is the survey method where researcher directly approaches the respondents and asks their view on the unit under study. The survey method consists of following sub-methods-: Interview Method Questionnaire Method For the research purpose questionnaire method was used where various questions relating to comparison of mutual fund and Unique Linked Insurance Plan were asked.

Data Analysis And Interpretation


In the study the data are analyzed using the percentage method. Percentage method is selected because the data thus analyzed will be easier to interpret in accordance with the objectives of the research. Wherever needed the graphs are drawn so that data interpretation becomes easier and one can understand it easily. For my research I have taken both primary and secondary data lets first see the secondary data.

Limitations of the Study


Following are the limitations of the research study on Comparison between mutual fund and Unique Linked Insurance Plan and potentiality of Mutual fund and Unique Linked Insurance Plan: The project was time bound, so the research was limited. The survey was done in JAMNAGAR city only, so it cannot be generalized. Due to limitation of time and cost constraints a sample size of only 100 respondents was chosen. The data collection method was questionnaire and so the bias of the respondents is present in giving the response. Data Analysis and Interpretation done may not be that strong due to small sample and random sampling method. The findings do not represent the correct picture of Bajaj Capital in Gujarat. The picture may be quite different from what is found in this report in other state of the country.

Conclusion
To conclude the analysis of the survey, it is found that awareness of the Unique Linked Insurance Plan products in JAMNAGAR is very low in. The product may be popular in other parts of the country. Bajaj capital is doing good marketing campaign for the products but still it is require more strong campaign especially for the Unique Linked Insurance Plan product Above all the most interesting conclusion drawn from survey is that the investors of the JAMNAGAR are traditional so they are investing more of in mutual fund so Unique Linked Insurance Plan products are not that popular.

There is less awareness of the UNIT LINKED PLAN in JAMNAGAR so more awareness amongst the investor should be increase.

In mutual fund the portfolio is maintain which can be changed according to return of the particular company which is not so in the UNIT LINKED PLAN. The company should try to more Awareness of ULIP Product in order to the attract more customer. The company should try to educate customer about the benefit in investment in ULIP Products.
