Suggest a topic

A lot of you reply to the daily emails with suggestions for posts, and I really appreciate that because it gives me post ideas, and I can write about stuff that is most relevant to you.

Normally, I take the gist of your suggestion; create a title of the post, and note it down on a virtual sticky note. But, the issue with this is that it is easy enough to miss an email, and sometimes the titles on the sticky notes don’t make any sense to me when I look at them later on.

So, I am creating a page here that is specifically for your suggestions for posts. You can leave a comment here suggesting an idea for a post, and if I know enough about the topic I will write about it.

That way we won’t lose track of anything you say, and if multiple people suggest the same topic for a post then I know that it should be written prior to moving on to other things.

Thanks for reading – and writing!

I have a DEMAT account in my wife’s name. she has opened the account in her maiden name since the supporting document presented at that time had that name. But most of her MF accounts are in her new name after marriage with the surname added. Our broker has not advised her on this difference .Now the broker firm is refusing to DEMAT her MF accounts citing this anomaly. I am not interested in opening another DEMAT account with the new name since some of the holdings are still in her maiden name. Besides the trouble has come up by broker firm’s callous attitude. there are two broker firms involved, one refusing to do anything with the other MF.
Can anybody suggest a way out.

Hi,

I wish to start investing in direct plans of mutual funds. I know I’ll have to apply directly through fundhouse/AMC website and that means a lot of paperwork for a first time investor like me. To make it easier, I’ve come up with a methodology – please let me know if it will work or not.

Methodology:

1. Invest minimum amount (Rs 500) in my shortlisted mutual funds via ICICIdirect (I already have an active icicidirect account). This will give me folio numbers for those mutual funds.

2. I can apply for online login to fundhouses/AMCs (for the mutual funds purchased in step 1) websites using the folio numbers – this will not require any paperwork.

3. Once I have the online login for the AMC website, I can purchase direct plans.

Will this work?

In my opinion do not invest in MF through a broker as high brokerage will add to the cost. Applying online is a better option.

Hi Shiv, Manshu

Last week PM has launched ‘Sukanya Samridhi Yojana’. This is only for girl child. For current FY, its interest rate is 9.1%. It seems to be good scheme under debt category. Can you please write an article on it. you can cover its tax implications and whether it is better than PPF etc.

Regards,
Amit.

Being in the highest tax bracket, I’ve been trying to shift my investment from Bank Fixed Deposits to Fixed Maturity Plans which are more tax efficient.
I’ve noticed that most FMP’s don’t go thro’ & are called off. Why is this so?
In the last 2 months, BSL MF,Tata MF & Reliance MF have returned my money saying that they have been unable to raise the amount required to launch the FMP schemes.
Are there other avenues for Sr Citizens like us?

Invest in Debt Long Term Gilt Funds.Currently giving about 15 to 20% Returns.Market expects a lower interest regime in future.It it happens it is good for such funds.If you can hold them for 3 Years it is tax efficient too.

Hello,
I find your website very informative. Can you please spare some time to provide your view on mutual fund investment at this state? Some specific things I would look for:

– SIP or lump sum, MF names to invest.
– Outlook for debt MFs

Thank You!

I invested last year in 1Yr FMP. The fund house sent me a letter asking my option to extend it for another 2 yrs. Is this because of favourable taxation of debt funds if held for 36months?I am told, that I may not get taxation benefit, if the FMP is extended in this manner till 3 yrs, because the original investment in FMP and later its extension will be under 2 different nos.Please clarify.
