What is the news on Quant Mutual Fund investigation by SEBI?

On Sunday 23-Jun-2024 evening, Moneycontrol broke the news of a SEBI investigation at the offices of Quant Mutual Fund on allegations of front-running.

Front-running is when a trader uses inside information about client orders to make trades for personal gain.

Front-running is not new. The Axis Mutual Fund case, which was discovered in May 2022, faced the same type of investigation and led to the barring of the fund manager and other related entities.

How are Quant mutual funds doing after the start of the Quant Mutual Fund investigation by SEBI?

This is the return of the five biggest (in terms of Assets Managed almost ₹55,000 crores) Quant funds after the probe launch on Sunday 23-Jun-2024. Fund performance data is from AMFI and Category performance data is from Valueresearchonline.

Fund vs category returns = Fund returns - Category returns

A negative number here means that the fund is underperforming vs. the category.
