CEO Anil Kumar told PTI.

The industry as a whole has 'de-grown' during 2008\09 as the AUM of the entire industry as of March 2008 was Rs 5,30,000 crore which went down to Rs 5,08,000 crore as of February 2009.

Latest reports suggest the AUM of the industry as of March 2009 was down further to Rs 4,94,000 crore.

Kumar said Birla Sun Life has the highest growth in AUMs. Few other players have had positive growth and many have posted flat growth or even de-growth, he pointed out.

He, however, conceded that the equity component of AUM is showing sluggishness and as of February, equity accounted for only about 15 to 20 per cent of the total AUM against 24 per cent as of March 08.

The fund has doubled its distribution base to over 26,000 and its number of branches now stand at 109. The customer base has doubled to 21.5 lakh, Kumar said.
