Abstract: Mutual funds, as an investment avenue, has seen increased popularity in India over the last five decades. From the first scheme, which was introduced in 1964 by UTI, the industry has seen significant growth in the contribution of investors. The Assets under Management which stood at INR. 25 Cr at the end of March 1965, has swelled up to almost INR. 18,48,000 Cr by the end of February 2017.

One such theory which has been widely accepted is the Expected Utility theory. This theory states that the Utility derived out of the outcome is more important to the decision maker in comparison to the outcome itself. And hence, the individual looks at maximizing utility instead of value...
