What is a NFO?

A nfo means a new fund from a mutual fund house which was not available earlier.

With growing acceptance of mutual funds as a form of investment, mutual fund houses periodically introduce new fund offers so as to complete their basket of investments available for investors.

A NFO is usually what results in the beginning of a mutual fund scheme.

Other reasons being merger of schemes within the same fund house or merger or acquisition of two or more fund houses, these are rare instances though.

Axis Flexi cap fund

Axis Bluechip fund

Parag Parikh flexi cap fund

Parag Parikh tax saver fund
