Most of the investors have graduation and post graduation and belong to the small saving group. The investors from employment occupation are significantly high. The advertisement and internet is the main source of information for most of the investors. It is found that majority of the investors preferred the existing schemes in open-ended category. The Systematic Investment Plan (SIP) is highly preferred mode of investment by the investors. Similarly Investors satisfaction analysis revealed that more than fifty percent of respondent investors are satisfied on return aspect, but less than fifty percent of respondent investors are satisfied on risk aspect. In overall, the investors have moderately satisfied with large-cap equity fund investment on an average basis.

But, from the literature studies, it is observed that no one study has focused on investors’ satisfaction towards large-cap equity mutual funds in particular in recent days.
