UTI started with humble beginnings. Created in 1964 by an Act of the Indian Parliament, UTI (or Unit Trust of India as it was known earlier) has a rich history of helping many generations of Indians plan their financial futures. By spawning Banks, Stock Exchanges and Depositories, it has also been instrumental in the development of the country’s Capital Market infrastructure.
Unit Trust of India (UTI) was launched in 1964 by the Government of India. As the country grew, UTI flourished in its pioneering role in the development of Capital Markets and Unit Trusts. With time the sector liberalized and private sector participants recognized the opportunity in the Mutual fund business. Eventually in 2003, following a restructuring, UTI Asset Management Company (UTI AMC) was carved out of the erstwhile Unit Trust of India (UTI), and commenced operations as a SEBI registered Mutual Fund. The ownership of the firm was split equally between the four largest State-owned financial institutions: Life Insurance Corporation, State Bank of India, Bank of Baroda and Punjab National Bank.
In January 2010, the global money management group, T Rowe Price International Ltd, acquired a 26% stake in UTI and the remaining 72.96% continues to be equally held between the existing four shareholders.
