Franklin Templeton gets CNBC-TV18, Crisil 'Mutual Fund of the Year' Award

MUMBAI: CNBC-TV18 and Crisil have, in association with BNP Paribas, joined hands to combine their individual long standing awards, to recognise consistent performance of India’s mutual funds, through the CNBC TV18 Crisil Mutual Fund of the Year Award.

SEBI Chairman G N Bajpai was the Guest of Honour at the awards ceremony and presented Franklin Templeton Mutual Fund with the ‘Mutual Fund of the Year Award’.

In addition to leaders from various fund houses, luminaries from India’s financial services sector including senior regulators, leading economists and analysts witnessed a host of awards being presented to various mutual funds for their consistent performance over time on the Crisil~CPR performance rankings framework.

Speaking at the CNBC-TV18 – Crisil Mutual Fund of the Year Award ceremony CNBC-TV18 CEO Haresh Chawla said, "This is the first time both CNBC-TV18 and Crisil have combined their long-standing associations with the mutual fund industry, thus creating the biggest Mutual Fund Awards in the region. The Mutual Fund of the Year Award is used extensively as a benchmark by intermediaries as well as investors today. CNBC- TV18 is determined to continue its endeavour of helping investors make informed investing decisions based on objective criteria."

Commenting at the Awards ceremony, Crisil managing director and CEO R Ravimohan said, "The Crisil~CPR performance rankings have over time developed into the industry benchmark for mutual fund schemes in India, as they offer a robust, unbiased and objective yardstick for recognition of consistent performance. Crisil has a long-term commitment to the funds industry to help develop new standards in benchmarking, valuation and other analytics. We are happy to partner CNBC-TV18 in awarding the best performing funds."

According to Crisil executive director and chief rating officer Roopa Kudva , "When Crisil launched Crisil~CPR in 2000, we had two key objectives in mind - To establish for the growing mutual fund industry a credible, objective and analytically rigorous measure for recognition of consistent mutual fund performance; and, as part of Crisil's ongoing initiatives -- to deepen India’s capital markets. "

The mutual fund schemes, which were awarded the CNBC-TV18 – Crisil Mutual Fund of the Year Awards for their consistent performance in seven categories were:

Open-ended Equity Diversified Funds: Alliance Basic Industries Fund, DSP Merrill Lynch Opportunities Fund, UTI Growth Value Fund

Open-ended Income Funds: Birla Income Plus Plan B, Principal Income Fund

Open-ended Income Short Term Funds: Birla Bond Plus - Retail, Principal Income Fund - Short Term Plan

Open-ended Balanced Funds: DSP Merrill Lynch Balanced Fund, HDFC Prudence Fund

Open-ended Liquid Funds: Alliance Cash Manager, Prudential ICICI Liquid Plan, Templeton India Treasury Management Account

Open-ended Gilt-Long Term Funds: Templeton India G-Sec Fund - Composite Plan, Templeton India G-Sec Fund - Long Term Plan

Open-ended Monthly Income Plans: FT India Monthly Income Plan

Consistent performance, as determined by the Crisil Composite Performance Rankings (Crisil~CPR) methodology was used for deciding the award winners. The eligibility criterion for being among the universe for consideration for the Awards was fairly stringent - the schemes had to qualify for all the four quarterly Crisil~CPRs in the year 2004.

Crisil FundServices analysed performances of the eligible schemes on the following parameters: risk adjusted returns, portfolio constitution of funds parameters like concentration, liquidity and asset quality. Hence the analysis is forward looking as well. The schemes were then ranked category-wise by computing the weighted average levels of the parameter-wise performance.
