What India’s Top Three Mutual Funds Bought And Sold In September

The crisis at Infrastructure Leasing & Financial Services Ltd. spurred the biggest monthly outflow from money market schemes in at least a decade in September as mutual funds faced redemption pressure. Yet, equity inflows surprised.

Net investments in equity funds rose 33.4 percent sequentially to Rs 11,172 crore in September, according to data released by the Association of Mutual Funds of India. The industry, however, witnessed an overall outflow of Rs 2.3 lakh crore during the month compared with an inflow of Rs 1.74 lakh crore in August.
