Inflows through SIPs (Systematic Investment Plan) increased to ₹12,286 crore in May from ₹11,863 crore in April, indicating that retail investors continue to have confidence in equity investments. This is the ninth consecutive month of SIP inflows exceeding ₹10,000 crore, a trend that began in September 2021 with ₹10,351 crore inflow.

Apart from equities, the Gold Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) category saw an inflow of ₹203 crore.

On the other hand, the debt category saw a net outflow of ₹32,722 crore in May after net inflow of ₹69,883 crore in the previous month.

Overall, the mutual fund industry recorded a net withdrawal of ₹7,532 crore last month as compared to a net inflow of ₹72,846 crore in April.

The total outflow pulled the average assets under management (AUM) of the industry to Rs 37.37 lakh crore at the end of May, from Rs 38.89 lakh crore at the end of April.
