Despite this, open-ended equity funds stayed in the positive zone for the 40th consecutive month.

Among equity funds, Sectoral/Thematic Funds saw the most inflows, with the category receiving a net investment of ₹22,351.69 crore in June. This was largely driven by NFOs where nine new funds collected ₹12,974 crore.

“The record inflows in equity funds for June were driven by steady SIP flows, robust NFO collections, and lumpsum purchases during corrections. Investors shrugged off election results-related volatility and as the uncertainty over government formation cleared, investors used the correction to add to their exposures. Overall, growing confidence among investors has spurred repeat investments contributing to this upward trend in flows and overall industry growth. We believe, investors have come of age and are using short-term volatility as an advantage for long-term wealth creation. With the budget around the corner, investors continue to be positive about their investments,” said Akhil Chaturvedi, Executive director & chief business officer, Motilal Oswal Asset Management.
