ICICI Pru MF halts fresh subscriptions via lumpsum mode in mid, smallcap schemes

ICICI Prudential Mutual Fund said that it will not accept lump sum money in its mid- and small-cap schemes from March 14. The curbs come a day after Sebi chairperson Madhabi Puri Buch pointed out that there is a danger of potential “froth” or “bubbles” in market which has traditionally favoured by retail investors. With this ICICI has become the first fund house to stop lump sum investments in a mid-cap fund although Nippon, Tata and SBI MFs have stopped lump sum investments in their small-cap schemes.
