This investment opportunity is best suited for the investor’s class who wants a more diversified investment portfolio. In the modern times mutual fund is a big industry in which many private players are coming and trying to capture the growth.

This research paper has put an effort on validating the selection techniques of mutual fund in India on the basis of return and risk frontier. Paper discussed the basis of selection of all mutual fund schemes based upon highest net asset and ranking. The ranking of these mutual fund schemes are validated by calculating the monthly returns of the funds. Researchers considered data from different sources like yahoo finance, value research online, RBI, NSE etc for this study. After this study, researchers will try to help the investors to identify and select the mutual fund schemes carefully in their portfolio as all the mutual fund schemes even if they are on higher ranking may not perform well in the short run.
