The topline and the bottom line both are showing a declining trend since FY19. Total revenues for FY20 has reduced by 17% to Rs 890 crore (FY19: Rs 1080 crore). This is due to the adverse effects of the pandemic wherein clients have withdrawn mutual funds due to volatile equity markets. There has also been some reduction in inflows and SIP Live Folios and the mutual fund industry has also experienced SIP stoppages.
Domestic Mutual Fund QAAUM has decreased by 11.8%, in the three-month period ended June 30, 2020, compared to the fiscal year ended March 31, 2020. However, the operating and the net margins are robust at 43% and 24% respectively in FY20. Debt to equity is very low for the AMC.
Retail participation in mutual funds and other market-linked products are heavily influenced by market performance and sentiment. A prolonged downturn or ongoing volatility could result in a decline in industry AUM or a shift to relatively lower-risk assets.
Sustainability of revenues amidst the peer competition as management fees may have to be lowered to attract more clients which may bring the margins down.
The listed peers of UTI AMC are HDFC AMC and Nippon Life Asset Management Limited as per RHP. However, other players in the industry are ICICI Prudential, Axis mutual fund, Aditya Birla Sun Life Mutual Funds among many others. The P/E of UTI is 25.73 at the upper price band which is low as compared to the industry peer P/E average of 38.64. This signifies that the IPO is attractively priced.

Considering the strong brand of UTI and being one of the large AMC, the proposed issue has garnered huge interest among the investors; thus it might bring in listing gains and long-term growth as well.
