A Study on Relationship Between Stock Market Returns and Mutual Fund Flows
Stock market returns and the capital flow of funds in the mutual funds have been universally understood to be interlinked. The prevailing more and more contribution of the mutual funds in the stock market, on the one hand, and the profound impact of rising stock market returns on getting higher investments in mutual funds, on the other, have undoubtedly made the relationship between share market and mutual fund flows to be of prime significance for the key participants and other stakeholders of both the markets. In this published research paper, the academic researcher attempts assessing the prominent presence of any association between the stock market returns and mutual fund assets under management in India by employing the multiple regression analysis. It has been reasonably concluded that there is no significant evidence of the presence of any such relationships in Indian markets during the period of study.
