Mutual funds provide a mechanism to invest in the stock market without knowing the complexities of stock market. It provides the best option to the investors who have no knowledge of the stock market. It is just the connecting bridge that allows a group of investors to pool their money together with a predetermined investment objective. Over the past decade, mutual funds have increasingly become the investor’s vehicle of choice for long-term investment. It becomes pertinent to study the performance of the mutual fund. The relation between risk-return determines the performance of a mutual fund scheme. As risk is commensurate with return, therefore, providing maximum return on the investment made within the acceptable associated risk level helps in segregating the better performers from the laggards.
