About Bandhan Mutual Funds

Before being named Bandhan Mutual Funds, the mutual fund house was named IDFC Mutual Funds and its parent company was IDFC Ltd.

Established in 2000, IDFC Mutual Fund was one of the largest Mutual Fund houses in India. By AUM or Assets Under Management, it was in the list of the 5 largest players in the sector - with more than Rs. 1,21,032.15 Crore as AUM as of March 2022. The corporation had been growing to cover most of the domestic market with regional headquarters across the Central and Eastern parts of India, where the economic growth rate is higher and more investment is needed.

However, in April 2022, a consortium including Bandhan Financial Holding (60%), ChrysCapital (20%), and Singapore's sovereign fund GIC (20%) began the process of acquiring IDFC Asset Management Company, after which IDFC Mutual Fund was rebranded as Bandhan Mutual Fund (in March 2023).

The fund house has 68 primary mutual fund schemes of which, 44 are debt schemes, 13 are equity schemes, 6 are hybrid schemes, and 5 from other categories.The Bandhan AMC holds roughly 3.03% of the industry AUM as of 31st May 2020.
