    I have read good reviews about In fact they come and collect your documents form your house. Also the charges are free for now. I have been with HDFC but they charge annual maintenance. In case of offline mode you will not have to pay any maintenance charges, Bluechip investment company is good and i trade with them too. Please do your own research before opening an account.

    I second what MoneySavingsHelp has said.

    To top that I say that the private AMC’s fund houses offer wide range/variety of fund products across the market. I believe with a bank’s account you may have restricted/limited choices of funds to invest money in.

    I have an Fidelity account which gives me access to 80 fund companies with there individual products. Will this much choice be there with a bank account only?

    Good Luck.

  6. These banks are charging some amount on every transaction + some annual charges. If you’re a small investor, do all your calculations and you’ll find it’s too much.

    Now, almost all AMC’s are giving option to invest in their schemes via NetBanking. Just submit your first application physically and then apply for I-PIN / T-PIN. After that, invest via NetBanking. It’s simple.

    So, cut your expenses while investing & go for DIRECT investment.

    Hope it will help you.

      Can we invest in SIP way by directly going to AMC’s? Please advise.

      1. Yes, Just visit any AMC office with your original & photocopy of your PAN card along with 1 cheque. You’ll get the application form / ECS form the office itself.

        Hope it will Help You.
