How exactly any Asset Management Company (AMC) works. AMC manages different Mutual Fund schemes, and they charge the fund management and administration fee. This fee is borne by the Mutual Fund Investors. When NAV (Net Asset Value) of the Mutual fund is calculated, these management and administration fees are charged to it. The NAV is net of all these charges and expenses. So basically this Fee is the Revenue for the AMC managing that fund. There is one concept of Expense Ratio. This expense ratio is percentage of average of funds assets of the Mutual Fund. As per SEBI guidelines this expense ratio should not be more than certain percentage of total assets. SEBI has stipulated different expense ratios for equity funds and debt funds. So if the assets Managed by the Fund are more, then obviously, AMC gets more revenue. And Reliance Nippon Life Asset Management Limited is also one of the AMCs.
Reliance Nippon Life plans to use the proceeds of the IPO for expansion. They plan to set up new branches, upgrading technology systems, marketing, advertising and brand building.
