MUFAP

    Mutual Funds Association of Pakistan (MUFAP) is the trade body for Pakistan’s multi billion rupees asset management industry. The money our members manage is in a wide variety of investment vehicles including stocks, bonds, money market instruments, government securities and bank deposits. Our role is to ensure transparency, high ethical conduct and growth of the mutual fund industry. MUFAP was formed in 1996 by Mr. Zaigham Mahmood Rizvi, ex-Chairman and founder member, and was formally incorporated in 2001 as a public company limited by guarantee not having share capital. MUFAP is licensed by Ministry of Commerce (Directorate General of Trade Organizations). After the establishment of MUFAP in 1996, private and foreign firms were allowed to float open-ended funds for the general public. This time also saw the stock market’s performance scale new heights as a result of positive government policies and incentives, registering a growth of more than 15 times in the net assets of the mutual funds between 2000-2008. Mutual Funds were initially overseen by the Corporate Law Authority (“CLA”) under its Securities Wing. The CLA, then a division of the Ministry of Finance, was gradually transformed and made independent as the Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (“SECP”) as part of the Capital Market Development Program (CMDP) initiative of the Asian Development Bank undertaken for Pakistan.
