The investment fund industry differs vastly from one country to another in terms of demographics, investment objectives, needs and patterns of savings. No single strategy works for different markets in the area of mutual funds. The industry is witnessing growth in tandem with the rise in personal financial assets in the post financial-crisis scenario. Investors are again considering mutual funds as preferred investment options as they offer high returns when compared to other investment instruments. Akin to several other industries, innovation in product offerings is the key that pushes growth in mutual funds industry in both boom and bust periods. In the current volatile economic scenario, mutual funds are seriously focusing on winning back investor trust by offering innovative products that carry low risk and yield maximum return. Currently, investor interest is also being roused for growth funds as well as stocks of retail, energy and materials producing sectors. Interest in the sectors is natural, given the tendency of these businesses to quickly bounce back from an economic slowdown. Retail investors are expected to drive future growth in the mutual funds industry.

Nevertheless, while the recent past growth in mutual funds industry was interesting to observe in the larger US and European markets, down south it was a different scenario. A case in point is China, were the fast economic growth did not guarantee investment gains. In Emerging markets like China, as opposed to developed ones, steep fluctuations are quite common. Markets can soar and at the same time fall to all time lows relatively quickly. However, in the neighboring India, there is immense potential funds for growth of mutual funds, in the backdrop of significant development going on the in the country.

Furthermore, investments in funds which are targeted towards emerging markets such as Latin America, India and China are witnessing increased interest as these countries are relatively shielded from economic uncertainties and are displaying faster growth. Other mutual fund categories such as those concentrated in equity precious metals are also registering double-digit returns, as investors are seeking to invest in precious metals such as gold to safeguard against uncertain times.
