Letter of Offer
Sharesansar interviewed Mega Capital’s CEO, Sabir Bade Shrestha, to learn more about the fund and the manager. An edited transcript has been provided.
As of January 2016, Nepal had 24 closed-ended and 3 open-ended mutual funds. A mutual fund share is equal to Rs. 10 par value. Investing in securities involves pooling money collected from investors into a professionally managed pool. A security is an investment asset, such as a stock, bond, or money market instrument. Consequently, the fund mangers invest after collection of the funds in stocks, debentures, initial public offerings, and fixed deposits.
A fund’s NAV is determined based on the performance of its investment.
Additionally, there is another way to measure a mutual fund’s performance: its long-term performance. Investing in funds is closely inspected by investors along with the profitability. Market forces of supply and demand are used to determine the fund’s market price.
