4.Number of equity funds shrinks as MFs decide to consolidate.

In a clean-up exercise, mutual fund houses have eliminated one-tenth of the equity schemes in operation in 2011. As many as 33 equity funds were merged with other schemes this year, even as fund houses made fewer new fund launches. Fund houses have resorted to merger of their schemes in three situations. 


Some have merged narrowly defined sector funds with diversified equity funds, because the latter may deliver steadier long-term returns. For instance, Franklin Templeton merged its FMCG and Pharma funds into its successful diversified equity scheme Franklin India Prima Plus in August 2011. Both the sector funds delivered a good performance in the last two years. Similarly, Kotak Mutual fund merged its theme-based Lifestyle Fund and Indo World Infrastructure fund into its Kotak Select Focus Fund.
