The dataset accompanying the research article titled "Assessing Mutual Fund Performance from the Perspective of Public Assets under Management" provides comprehensive information on the performance dynamics of mutual funds in Nepal over a 48-month period from January 2018 to January 2022. The dataset comprises six key variables for five selected mutual funds: Assets under Management (AUM), Expense Ratio, Age, Liquidity, Net Asset Value (NAV), and Return. AUM reflects the total market value of assets managed by each fund, while the Expense Ratio measures the proportion of assets used to cover operating expenses. Age denotes the duration since the inception of each fund, providing insights into its market experience. Liquidity assesses the ease of converting fund assets into cash, while NAV represents the per-share value of assets after deducting liabilities. Return reflects the percentage change in fund value over the study period. Researchers can utilize this dataset to replicate the analysis presented in the research article, conduct further analyses, or explore other research questions related to mutual fund performance and investment dynamics in Nepal. Proper citation of the original research article is encouraged when using the dataset for academic or research purposes, ensuring adherence to ethical and confidentiality standards.
