One of our guiding principles is to keep Investors First.
For that reason, all our efforts at Paytm Money are always inclined towards simplifying your investment experience and help you take informed investment decisions.
As an investor, your goal is to maximise your returns on the investments you make; and we assist you with same. We observed that many investors while they have been investing for years, don’t realise that they are and would be losing a lot of their wealth in hidden commissions that come as a part of higher expense ratios that comes into play due to the presence of distributor commissions. And no, if you are investing online or through Banking — you are not investing directly in mutual funds! We wrote about this here.
Many users have asked us for the option to move from regular to direct plans of mutual funds. Most were apprehensive either about the process (offline, paper driven, time consuming, etc) and possible implications of exit loads, tax, and the rest of that matters.
We are today happy to introduce this new feature on Paytm Money — ‘Switch to Direct’ which will ensure that as mutual fund investor you are able to get up to 1% higher return every year with direct plans, and are able to make smart switch decision from your existing mutual fund investments in regular funds.
With this, you can switch your investments from banks, distributors, offline channels, AMCs, or other online platforms seamlessly to Direct Mutual Fund plans on Paytm Money. We have piloted this feature with a small set of users over the past few weeks and have already witnessed few crore worth of investments already shifted to direct plans. It is incredible, you should definitely try!
Just to reiterate, here are the benefits of investing in direct plans of mutual funds:
- Get up to 1% higher returns on your investments
- Lower expense ratios
- No hidden commissions or distribution fees
- Of course, investing and switching is free on Paytm Money
