According to a report by Value Research, Quant's five largest mutual funds experienced outflows following front-running allegations in the last week of June. The Quant Small Cap Fund, the largest scheme managed by Quant Mutual Fund with assets totaling 22,967 crore as of June 2024, saw an outflow of 809 crore after the allegations.

The Quant Active Fund, managing assets worth 10,758 crore in multi-cap investments, saw an outflow of 374 crore following SEBI's investigation. Similarly, the Quant ELSS Tax Saver Fund, managing 10,528 crore in assets, witnessed an outflow of 28 crore. Quant Mid Cap Fund and Quant Flexi Cap Fund experienced outflows of 306 crore and 338 crore, respectively.

The report also noted that the top five funds of Quant Mutual Fund have increased their holdings in HDFC Bank and Reliance Industries.

SEBI is investigating a suspected case of front-running linked to Quant MF, a firm managing assets worth 93,000 crore. This has sparked concerns among investors regarding the safety of their investments.

This isn't the first occurrence of front-running in mutual funds. Previously, Sebi dealt with a case involving Axis Mutual Fund, resulting in the prohibition of the fund's dealer and 20 other entities from the securities market. Sebi also seized wrongful gains amounting to 30.55 crore.
