We provide cost-effective financial products with value-added services that are beneficial to the customer.
The FundsIndia platform is an initiative of Wealth India Financial Services Private Limited (WIFS). It was started in 2008 by two entrepreneurs - Mr. Srikanth and Mr. Chandra (pictured on the right). Both have decades of experience in the financial services industry in India and abroad. They are backed by a wonderful team of efficient and experienced professionals with technology and domain expertise. The company is located in Chennai.
FundsIndia.com provides really useful, innovative services to investors. It provides a platform for investments in mutual funds, equities, deposits apart from a tax-filing platform (in partnership with TaxYogi). We are planning to unveil an insurance platform soon. Using leading technology platforms and innovative service designs, we provide ways for the investors to deploy, manage, and monitor their investments in ways not seen thus far in the Indian financial services industry.
With FundsIndia, you can invest, manage and view the investments of your family members i.e. spouse, kids and parents in a consolidated manner using a common login id. You can invest individually or jointly with them by creating different joint holding mechanisms for their accounts.
Single mandate for many SIPs
In the past, systematic investment planning meant execution of a separate bank mandate for each scheme you wished to invest in. Whereas now, you can setup one bank mandate for multiple SIPs across fund houses. You can setup a portfolio of schemes with percentage allotment of money and manage it as a single SIP. That is, with one bank mandate (Rs 5000 each month for example) you can invest across as many funds SIPs as you want (say, 5 SIPs of Rs 1000).
This is a useful tool to those who do not wish to execute bank mandates. It helps you control your periodic investments by choosing when and how much to invest every month by alerting you to make the investments when required. Every month we shall send you an email alert reminder, you can choose how much to invest or even skip that month's investment.
For beginning investors who are not sure about how much they will be able to save every month, we offer an innovative service called the Flexi SIP. With Flexi-SIP, an investor can choose a mutual fund scheme, a regular investment amount, and a monthly investment date like for any other SIP. However, the investor will also choose a maximum investment amount. This maximum amount can be as high as 10 times the regular investment amount. After this, every month, the investor will have the flexibility to set the value of SIP for the next installment. This value can be any amount between the minimum required SIP amount for that scheme and the maximum set by the investor. The current month investment will be made for that amount. It is, however, not absolutely necessary for the investor to set this value every month. If they do not do anything, the regular amount will be invested like any other SIP. So, the investor get both the benefit of hands-off investment of SIP as well as the flexibility to change the value if they so desire.
|Regular SIP vs Flexi SIP|
|Scheme Name||HDFC Top 200 - Growth||HDFC Top 200 - Growth|
|SIP Date||10th of every month||10th of every month|
|Number of SIP Installments||36||36|
|Regular SIP Amount||Rs. 5,000||Rs. 5,000|
|Maximum SIP Amount||Not applicable||Rs. 10,000|
|Minimum SIP amount (for this scheme)||Not applicable||Rs. 1,000|
|What happens every month||In this case, the constant amount of Rs. 5,000 will be debited and invested every month.||In this case, the investor can change the monthly SIP investment to be anywhere between Rs. 1000 and Rs. 10,000. If the investor does not explicitly make a choice in a give month, the regular amount of Rs. 5,000 will be invested.|
Though easy as an idea the above adage is difficult to practice. Now, FundsIndia is the first financial services firm to offer value-averaging investment plan (VIP) across the spectrum of equity funds in the country. VIP helps investors by potentially enhancing rate of return than the regular SIP. At FundsIndia we offer value-averaging transfer plan (VTP) as well to our customers.
