Dear Friend, **Open-ended funds:** **These funds buy and sell units on a continuous basis and, hence, allow investors to enter and exit as per their convenience. The units can be purchased and sold even after the initial offering period . The units are bought and sold at the net asset value (NAV) declared by the fund. ** **Closed-ended funds:** ** The unit capital of closed-ended funds is fixed and they sell a specific number of units. Unlike in open-ended funds, investors cannot buy the units of a closed-ended fund after its NFO period is over. This means that new investors cannot enter, nor can existing investors exit till the term of the scheme ends.

What is the difference between an open-ended and close-ended scheme? -------------------------------------------------------------------- Open-ended schemes can issue and redeem units any time during the life of the scheme while close-ended schemes cannot issue new units except in case of bonus or rights issue. Hence, the number of units of an open-ended scheme can fluctuate on a daily basis while that is not the case for close-ended schemes. Another way of explaining this difference is that new investors can join the scheme by directly applying to the mutual fund at applicable net asset value related prices in case of open-ended schemes while that is not the case in case of close-ended schemes, where new investors can buy the units from secondary market only In Open ended schemes You can invest any time and there is no lock in period, while Close Eneded Schemes open for a certain period to invest and have a lock in perid.

hai.. Categorisation by maturity period A mutual fund scheme can be classified into open-ended scheme or close-ended scheme depending on its maturity period. Open-ended fund/scheme An open-ended fund or scheme is one that is available for subscription and repurchase on a continuous basis. These schemes do not have a fixed maturity period. Investors can conveniently buy and sell units at Net Asset Value (NAV) related prices which are declared on a daily basis. The key feature of open-end schemes is liquidity. Close-ended fund/scheme A close-ended fund or scheme has a stipulated maturity period eg five and seven years. The fund is open for subscription only during a specified period at the time of launch of the scheme. Investors can invest in the scheme at the time of the initial public issue and thereafter they can buy or sell the units of the scheme on the stock exchanges where the units are listed. In order to provide an exit route to the investors, some close-ended funds give an option of selling back the units to the mutual fund through periodic repurchase at NAV related prices. SEBI Regulations stipulate that at least one of the two exit routes is provided to the investor ie either repurchase facility or through listing on stock exchanges. These mutual funds schemes disclose NAV generally on weekly basis.

Hi Mithu The main difference between open and close ended equity scheme is In Open Ended Equity Scheme you can sell your units at any time during the life of the scheme but In case of a Closed Ended Equity Scheme there is a lock in period of say 3 years during which you can't sell your units.

Hi Muthu, In case of Open-ended schemes units can be issued and redeemed any time during the life of the scheme while close-ended schemes cannot issue new units except in case of bonus or rights issue. Hence, the number of units of an open-ended scheme can fluctuate on a daily basis while that is not the case for close-ended schemes. Another way of explaining this difference is that new investors can join the scheme by directly applying to the mutual fund at applicable net asset value related prices in case of open-ended schemes while that is not the case in case of close-ended schemes, where new investors can buy the units from secondary market only I hope the Information is clear.
