Can I change bank account from where SIP goes in 5 AMC’s in one go ?

POSTED BY SIVA PRASAD RAVIRALA ON March 5, 2014 12:20 pm COMMENTS (13)

I am investing in five AMCs. Now I want to change Bank account for my transactions. Every AMC is asking individual application to change account. Is there any other procedure to change bank account with all AMCs using one application? Is CAMS will help in this regard?

Please help

    Dear Ashal,

    Reasons for selecting 2 funds.
    1. As you mentioned, if one fund outperforms, another will underperform. If I select only one fund, it may underperform or outperform, though I will select after research. As you know, Past performance does not guarantee future performance. So for safety side, I selected two funds in each category. You may ask why 2, why not 3 or more. In my view more than 2 means over diversifying.
    2. Iam not diversifying among stocks, I am diversifying among fund managers.

    Please let me know your views.

    Thank You

    Dear Siva, I w’d still prefer a lean and mean portfolio. Sample this – out of your 2 large cap fund, one ‘ll always under perform than the other one. Some times, fund A and sometimes fund B. Also check the underlying portfolio. Are you really diversified among stocks or just holding same stocks with different %age?

    Thanks

    Dear Ashal,

    My funds are as per category.

    Large cap-2 Funds
    Large&Midcap-2 Funds
    Midcap&Smallcap-2Funds
    FMCG-1 Stopped as of now
    Gold fund-1
    ELSS-2 Funds-I started initially in Canara Robeco, but later to invest in Direct Fund, there is no facility to initiate SIP Online. Hence I had to chose another fund-Axis LT Equity.

    And Iam going to add one International Fund-ICICI US Bluechip or Franklin India

    Your views are invited.

    Thank you

    Dear SIVA, is it 5 different AMCs or 5 different funds?

    Thanks

    Ashal

    Yes, you have to submit individual form at all AMCs. If the 5 AMCs that you have invested have CAMS as their registrar, you can go to CAMS and submit 5 forms of the all AMCs at a time. If some of them have Karvy as registrar, you have to do the same at Karvy.

    Hi Siva,

    Alot of investors face this problem. If you have been investing directly with the AMC then there is no single form to change your bank account information with all the AMCs.

    This is where distributors like FundsIndia come in handy. You can consolidate all your Mutual Fund holdings in one single account. Also, requests such as yours can be handled more effectively.

    We have an ‘Easy Transfer’ option where you can transfer all your offline holdings onto an online FundsIndia account. Then all you need to do is setup fresh SIPs using the account details of your new bank account. We will do all the running around for you.

    Every time you need to make a change in your investments you can either do it online or contact our customer support team and they will guide you every step of the way.

    Mr.Rajaram who is an advisor who used FundsIndia has written about a similar problem faced by another investor. Read his article here – http://www.fundsindia.com/blog/general/why-non-standardization-of-mf-industry-is-not-an-issue/3461
