In January 1994, Morgan Stanley Mutual Fund (MSMF) launched the Morgan Stanley Growth Fund (MSGF). MSMF was sponsored by Morgan Stanley Asset Management India Private Limited (MSAM India), the Indian subsidiary of Morgan Stanley Group Inc (Morgan Stanley). MSGF, a closed-ended fund1, could be redeemed only after 15 years, in January 2009. The fund was intended for retail investors with an investment objective of long-term capital appreciation. The company raised Rs 3 billion by issuing 300 million units at the rate of Rs 10 per unit. The liquidity for MSGF units was provided through listing on the Mumbai, Kolkata, Delhi, Chennai, and Ahmedabad Stock Exchanges.

The fund primarily invested in equity and equity related instruments. However, the investments in equities were subjected to certain limitations as prescribed by SEBI2 guidelines (Refer to Exhibit I for SEBI Guidelines).
