Amfi CEO N S Venkatesh said SIP numbers look strong, with the highest-ever contribution at Rs 12,976.34 crore a month. The market reacted to inflationary factors and rate hikes. However, he said that small investors had shown reliable faith in mutual fund investments, seeing SIP as wealth accumulation and wealth creation over a longer term.

The markets continued to witness inflows to the tune of Rs 14,099.73 crore, with the growth driven by the flows into sectorial or thematic funds in the reporting month. The mid-cap category and Flexi-cap category saw important inflows during the month. Despite the financial turmoil in the domestic and global markets following rate hikes and the rupee fall, domestic investors invested in the markets, leading to optimistic flows during the month. She said that the positive sentiment is likely driven by investors’ interest in investing in the NFOs launched in the month.
