For instance, for an equity Mutual Fund, the AUM will be the total value of its portfolio's equity shares (plus any other asset it might have invested in).

It is updated only at the end of the month and released within few days of the next month.

The AUM of the fund is a good indicator of its popularity. A fund with a high AUM means a lot of money has been invested in it, and investors like it. However, the AUM should never be the primary criteria while selecting a fund. There are funds with huge AUMs that continue to perform well despite their size.
