In any given country Mutual Funds operate in similar regulatory framework, the investors will be almost homogenous, the markets are rather efficient and the operating expenses will be more or less the same. However, there are differences in the performance of mutual funds. The performance of mutual fund may be influenced by the type of sponsorship. This paper examines the effect of type of ownership on the performance of Mutual Funds.In India mutual funds can be categorized into three on the basis of sponsors viz., bank and institution sponsored, private sponsored and foreign sponsored mutual funds. The performances of mutual funds are evaluated with the help of Sharpe measure, Treynor measure and Jensen measure. The study found that disparity does not exist in the performance of mutual funds on the basis of type of sponsorship. ANOVA test confirms that there is no difference in the performance among Mutual Funds.
