Seasoned fund supervisor Navneet Munot is about to hitch HDFC Mutual Fund — the nation’s second largest asset supervisor dealing with Rs 3.75 lakh crore of investor cash — as its managing director and chief govt officer. Munot, the chief funding officer of SBI Mutual Fund, will take over the reins of the listed firm after Milind Barve, the fund home’s long-serving chief, retires in January.

The resolution to nominate him because the MD and CEO was taken within the HDFC Mutual Fund’s board assembly on Monday, based on a inventory trade disclosure. SBI Mutual — the nation’s largest fund home with Assets Under Management (AUM) of Rs 4.2 lakh crore — is but to announce Munot’s substitute.

Munot’s crossover from fund administration to the nook workplace comes after dealing with investor cash for nearly twenty years. He has been the CIO of SBI Mutual for 12 years, when the fund home soared to the place of the nation’s largest in property.

Before SBI Mutual, he was a fund supervisor at Morgan Stanley Asset Management and CIO-fixed earnings at Birla Sun Life Mutual Fund. Munot joins the listing of CIOs similar to Kotak Mutual Fund’s Nilesh Shah and Aditya Birla Mutual Fund’s A Balasubramanian who went on to turn into CEOs.

Sources mentioned Munot’s pay package deal in HDFC Mutual can be just like what Barve is drawing. As on March 31, Barve’s whole wage was Rs 6.45 crore and held 10.Four lakh shares in inventory choices valued at about Rs 255 crore as per HDFC AMC’s closing worth on Friday. Munot’s newest remuneration in SBI Mutual couldn’t be ascertained although business officers mentioned it was about Rs 5 crore.

“The salary plus stock options is a big attraction for the HDFC AMC’s CEO position, but for Navneet Munot, the movement from the CIO of the biggest fund to the CEO of the second biggest fund makes a lot of sense because he would have never been a CEO in SBI Mutual,” mentioned the CEO of a giant mutual fund. The submit of a CEO in SBI Mutual is open solely to the financial institution’s senior officers on deputation to the subsidiary.

Industry officers mentioned, in HDFC Mutual, Munot may face a stiff job of discovering his toes as a newcomer to the group. HDFC Mutual fund’s veteran CIO Prashant Jain, who’s the general public face of the fund home, has been with the corporate since 2003. Chirag Setalvad, one other senior fund supervisor, has been with HDFC Mutual since 2007.

“Navneet Munot has to find his space in the midst of tenured bigwigs,” mentioned a senior mutual fund business official. “It will not be easy but the good part is he understands fund management and has a good head on his shoulders.”
