10 JULY 2019 – The winners of the India Lipper Fund Awards from Refinitiv have been revealed. Following the recent rebranding of Thomson Reuters financial and risk business to Refinitiv in India, the awards are now known as Lipper Fund Awards from Refinitiv.
The Lipper Fund Awards from Refinitiv are held to recognise top-performing unit trust funds in the country. Only funds that have performed well for three years or more are recognised and winners are determined based on the Lipper Leader ratings for Consistent Return, a risk-adjusted investment performance return measure developed by Lipper.
The influential and prestigious Lipper Fund Awards are based on our Lipper Leaders Rating for Consistent Return (please click here to see the full list of winners). The awards are based on Lipper’s proven proprietary methodology, which can be viewed here. The full list of 2019 Group Award winners follows below:

This year, a total of 28 awards were given out in India, including 24 for fund classification awards, 3 group asset awards and 1 overall group award. Amongst the India mutual fund classification awards, 8 were given for three-year period, 8 for five-year period, and 8 for ten-year period.
Xav Feng, Head of Asia Pacific Research, Lipper, commented, “The total net asset value of the India fund market has seen significant growth, surging 127.5% to $325,699.54 million compared to 2017, as of the end of 2018. However, India posted slightly net inflow of $2,921.41 million compared with 2017’s net inflow of $43,564.3 million. Moreover, a $532 billion net inflow surged into global fund markets in 2018, and money market funds posted the largest net inflows of $237 billon while bond funds posted a slight net outflow. The US continued enjoying the largest net inflows of $236 billion while Europe posted slightly less net inflows of $1.5 billion for 2018. Investors should continue watching out for US and China developments off the back of last week’s G20 meeting and the US Fed’s further monetary policy.”
