Mutual Fund is a Capital Market Investment Vehicle. In Bangladesh there are 48 Mutual Funds under 17 Asset Management Companies. This paper focused on evaluating the performance of 48 growth oriented mutual funds on the basis of weekly returns compared to market returns. Risk adjusted performance measures suggested by Jenson, Treynor, Sharpe and statistical models are employed. It is found that, most of the mutual funds have performed better according to Jenson and Treynor measures but not up to the benchmark on the basis of Sharpe ratio. However, most of the mutual funds are diversified and have reduced its unique risk. The growth oriented funds have performed better in terms of total risk and the funds are offering advantages of diversification and professionalism to the investors. So, mutual funds perform better with their expertise.
