Key Ratios to Analyse a Mutual Fund
- Expense Ratio – It is the cost of managing the fund charged by the mutual fund. It includes operating costs, management fees, allocation charges, advertising costs. Its value is inversely proportional to the size of the mutual fund. A higher expense ratio means a high portion of the return on investment being used to manage expenses, thus reducing the return.
- Portfolio Turnover Ratio – It measures how many times the assets under the fund were traded over a given period. This ratio depends on the market conditions and fund management style. A high value means frequent trading and higher transaction cost, resulting in reduced returns. It also generates higher taxes.
- Beta – It determines how volatile a fund is compared to a benchmark. It measures the risk involved in a fund. If its value is more than one, then it loses or gains more than the benchmark. If the value is one, it is the same as a benchmark and if its value is less than one, its losses or gains are less than the benchmark.
- Sharpe Ratio – It gives the risk-adjusted return on investment. It is calculated by deducting the risk-free return from the portfolio return and dividing it by standard deviation. So it tells the excess return we get on taking the risk involved in the unit. So a high Sharpe ratio means the better yielding capacity of the fund.
- Standard Deviation – It is a measurement of variance from the average. A greater standard deviation means higher volatility, either above or below the average.
