Tax Provisions for investment in Mutual Funds
As any investor would agree, our investment decisions are guided not only by the features of a particular financial product or its suitability, but also by the prevailing tax provisions that the instrument is subject to. As such, like any other financial product, there are tax implications of investing in mutual fund schemes too. Different types of schemes are subject to different tax provisions. The tenure of investment is also an important factor when deciding upon one’s tax liability. Therefore as an investor, we must have a good understanding of the relevant tax provisions, to help us plan our investments in a better manner.

Taxable event in case of investment in mutual funds may occur in the following circumstances:

Income /Dividend Distribution by a Scheme.
Gain/loss from the redemption /transfer of mutual fund units.

Current tax laws prescribe different tax provisions for equity-oriented mutual funds and other than equity oriented funds. However, dividend income received in respect of the units of a mutual fund scheme is exempt from tax in the hands of an investor, irrespective of the nature of the scheme.

The Sharpe ratio measures the risk-adjusted return of a fund. Simply put, the ratio measures the variability of ' excess returns' (defined by returns of the fund over the 'risk less' security). Mathematically, the formula takes a fund's return in excess of a risk-free investment and divides this by the standard deviation of the returns. The higher the Sharpe ratio, the better the fund
Standard Deviation
