With an asset base of Rs 57,998 crore at the end of the December quarter, IDFC Mutual Fund manages a range of funds across debt and equity classes.


In December 2010, Natixis Global Asset Management struck a share purchase agreement to take stake in IDFC AMC and IDFC AMC Trustee.


As part of the agreement, there was a requirement that both shareholders will review the partnership at the end of five years.


Following a review clause in the agreement, IDFC, in a filing to stock exchanges, said it has "agreed to acquire through IDFC Financial Holding Company the balance stake (about 25 percent) in IDFC AMC and IDFC AMC Trustee from Natixis Global Asset Management".
