The company caters to a diverse group of individual and institutional investors through a wide variety of funds and services.

It manages the domestic mutual funds of UTI Mutual Fund, provides portfolio management services (PMS) to institutional clients and high net worth individuals (HNIs), and manage retirement funds, offshore funds and alternative investment funds.

It managed 153 domestic mutual fund schemes, comprising equity, hybrid, income, liquid and money market funds as of June 2020. UTI AMC's total QAAUM for domestic mutual funds was Rs 1,33,630 crore, while other AUM was Rs 8,49,390 crore. With 1.09 crore live folios as of March 2020, its client base accounts for 12.2 percent of the approximately 8.97 crore folios that, according to CRISIL, are managed by the Indian mutual fund industry.


UTI AMC provides discretionary PMS to Employees Provident Fund Organization (EPFO), Postal Life Insurance (PLI), National Skill Development Fund (NSDF) and advisory PMS to various offshore and domestic accounts. As on June 2020, AUM for PMS business was at Rs 6,97,050 crore.

As of June 2020, its distribution network includes 163 UTI Financial Centres (UFCs), 257 Business Development Associates (BDAs) and Chief Agents (CAs) (40 of whom operate Official Points of Acceptance (OPAs)) and 43 other OPAs, most of which are in each case located in B30 cities. The company also has offices in London, Dubai, Guernsey and Singapore, through which it markets offshore and domestic mutual funds to offshore investors who seek to invest in India.

Aggregate AUM of the Indian mutual fund industry has grown at a healthy pace over the past ten years, against the backdrop of an expanding domestic economy, robust inflows and rising investor participation, particularly from individual investors. Average AUM grew at a CAGR of 13 percent from Rs 7.6 lakh crore (trillion) as of March 2010 to Rs 27 lakh crore as of March 2020.


Average AUM of equity-oriented funds grew at a CAGR of approximately 20.5 percent, from Rs 3.7 lakh crore as of March 2015 to Rs 9.7 lakh crore as of June 2020, while average AUM of debt-oriented funds grew at a CAGR of approximately 4.9 percent, from Rs 5.3 lakh crore as of March 2015 to Rs 6.8 lakh crore as of June 2020, primarily driven by the IL&FS default and the ensuing NBFC crisis and subsequently exacerbated by the COVID-19 global pandemic.

Average AUM of other category of funds (including ETFs, index funds and FoF investing overseas) saw robust growth of approximately 57.2 percent CAGR over a lower base as institutional investors (such as the Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation or EPFO) began investing a portion (currently 15 percent) of their incremental deposits into equities via passively managed funds, an industry trend CRISIL expects to continue long term.

8) Financials and Peers

Company's revenue during FY17-19 remained steady with Rs 1,050.5 crore in FY19, led by stable QAAUM. In FY20, revenue from operations declined 18.6 percent YoY to Rs 855 crore, due to a reduction in revenue from the sale of services and lower gains on fair value changes. Revenue declined at a 6 percent CAGR during FY17-FY20.

Its profit declined 20.6 percent YoY to Rs 276.4 crore in FY20, due to reductions in revenue from the sale of services and lower net gains on fair value changes, partly offset by a decrease in scheme expenses and management fees, ICICI Direct said.

"PAT as percentage of revenue declined from 38 percent in FY17 to 31 percent in FY20, though in Q1FY21 has increased to 37 percent. Consequently, return on equity (RoE) declined from 18.5 percent in FY17 to 10 percent in FY20, which has increased to 3.6 percent (non-annualised) in Q1FY21," the brokerage added.
