Industry experts feel that the MF industry is in its nascent stage and is expected to hit Rs 100 lakh cr in the next 10 years. Inflows from retail investors are supporting the liquidity rally on D-Street.
“We have written about this theme in the past too and at the cost of repeating myself, we will look back at March 2020 as the tailwind for the financialization of the Indian economy,” Naveen Chandramohan, Founder & Fund Manager – ITUS Capital, said.
“In a perverse way, I believe the number of demat accounts open today will eventually benefit the MF and Asset management industry. Over the next 10 years, I expect the MF industry to be at 100L Crores. So, within this context, we
are only seeing the initial stages of this growth,” he said.
