AMCs-in-India

All the asset management companies are part of Association of Mutual Funds in India (AMFI). AMFI was incorporated in 1995 as a non-profit organisation of all the registered AMCs in India.

Franklin Templeton has been in the industry for over two decades now. The total AUM of Franklin Templeton stands over INR 74,576 crores as recorded on September 2016.

Over the years, many private sector AMCs penetrated the mutual funds market. HDFC Mutual Fund set up in 2000 is one of the most successful Mutual Fund Houses in India. As on June 2016, the assets under management of HDFC Mutual Fund stand over INR 2,13,322 crores.
