Views: In our view, Nippon Life AMC posted a mixed set of numbers for Q3FY22 with MF AUM growth being healthy while operationally there were some niggles that impacted PAT. Decline in other income mainly led to reduction in overall PAT, mainly due to MTM impact of decline in equity, also due to decline in fixed Income yields towards the end of the quarter. Going forward, pressure on yield will be from NFOs at low yield. With good product mix and with stability in market share and further expected stable market share we remain neutral on the stock.
