That study focus on income, balance and equity schemes of open-ended and close-ended mutual funds. The performance of these funds evaluates using Sortino measure, Shrape measure, Treynor measure, Jenssen differtial measure and Inforamtion measure. The sample for the study consists of 73 funds from 2007 to 2012. Results show open-ended mutual funds performance is better than close-ended mutual funds. KSE (market portfolio) performance is grater over the all sample base mutual funds. Most risk adjusted funds returns are negative, which probably due to mutual fund industry set back by financial crisis during sample period.
