Quantum Mutual Fund: NAV, Performance & Latest MF Schemes

Quantum Mutual Fund’s sponsor is Quantum Advisors Private Company, an institutional equity research firm founded by Mr Ajit Dayal in January 1990. Quantum Advisors is also the first institutional equity research firm in India. The firm played a pioneering role in introducing qualitative, quantitative, and analytical approaches to India’s stock market investments. Quantum Advisors devised a strategy that evaluated valuation metrics to identify investment opportunities in the resurgent Indian stock market. The firm provided investment advice to various renowned institutions and famous investors like Jardine Fleming (whose investments in the Indian stock market exceed US$ 1 billion), Walden Nikko India Ventures Fund, Prolific India Opportunities Fund, and Hansberger Global Investors, Inc. Over time, the firm expanded its business and evolved as an asset manager and investment advisor, managing equities, debt, fixed income, and real estate.

In December 2005, Mr Dayal got the license for Quantum Asset Management Company Private Limited or Quantum AMC, the asset manager of Quantum Mutual Fund. It is the 29th mutual fund company in India. The company functions as a trust as per the provisions of the Indian Trusts Act, 1882. At present, the AMC manages ten funds across fund categories like equity, debt, commodity, and fund of funds. The timeline for launching each of the ten funds is as follows:

  • March 2006 – Quantum Long Term Equity Fund (later renamed to Quantum Long Term Equity Value Fund)
  • April 2006 – Quantum Liquid Fund
  • February 2008 – Quantum Gold Fund ETF 
  • July 2008 – Quantum Index Fund ETF (later renamed to Quantum NIFTY ETF)
  • December 2008 – Quantum Tax Saving Fund
  • July 2009 – Quantum Equity Fund of Funds
  • May 2011 – Quantum Gold Savings Fund
  • July 2012 – Quantum Multi Asset Fund of Funds (later renamed to Quantum Multi Asset Fund of Funds)
  • May 2015 – Quantum Dynamic Bond Fund
  • July 2019 – Quantum India ESG Equity Fund

Quantum AMC was perhaps the only such financial institution in India to have increased their employees’ salaries by 15% during the early lockdown period, on the condition that they would give half of the extra money to someone who lost their income due to the economic disruption.

In the financial year 2005-06, Quantum AMC had an Asset Under Management (AUM) of INR 11.26 Crore, and the total folios were 798. The figure has steadily grown ever since. And in the financial year 2019-20, the AUM increased to INR 1,119.24 Crore and the number of folios to 69,100. From the financial year 2005-06 to 2016-17, the AMC did not spend anything on distributor commission, as it was a direct-to-investor mutual fund.
