Are Direct Mutual Fund Better Investments ?
Like most of us when we were a child I was mischievous too. There was a guava orchard next to my house. Along with my friends, I used to pluck guava fruit from my neighbours’ orchard and relish it every day. The neighbour used to run after us, as he used to work hard day and night. And we would flick away pie of his hard work and money though in our innocence.
Think of the neighbour’s hard work and money that goes into building the orchard as the hard-earned money we invest in the market. And the child here is like those mutual fund agents/distributors who purposely sell regular plan of mutual fund and to earn commission in returns from your investment amount every month regardless of whether you invest or not.
That is exactly why it’s advisable to invest in direct plans to protect your hard-earned money. So instead of giving your money to any agent or distributors, you can instead reinvest that amount in the direct plan and generate wealth.
Earlier you could purchase direct plans from AMCs through offline or online method only but SEBI has now allowed registered advisers to provide a platform for direct mutual fund investment for ease of investing where you can invest in any AMC mutual fund of your choice in few clicks.
