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.
