    Dear Vinman, you are always welcome.

    Dear Vinman, personally I w’d prefer my own MF investment in direct mode. 0.75% fee and regular plans under your broker (I’m not calling him the planner), your expense ratio ‘ll be regular plan for MF +0.75%. Whereas if you opt to invest in direct plans and pay an upfront fee to your broker, you w’d save a lot of amount. How?

    Say upfront fee is 20000 Rs. but %age sharing fee is just 0.75% of your investment portfolio. Now if your portfolio is say 5L Rs. in 1st year, it’s 3850 Rs. in 1st year but next year, the portfolio value is say 12L Rs. (5L old investment + 5L Rs. new Investment + 2L Rs. growth in investment). Now this same 0.75% on 12L Rs. ‘ll be 9000 Rs. Now for 3rd Year say portfolio value is 20L Rs. Now the %age sharing ‘ll be 15000 Rs.

    Now do tell me w’d you still prefer %age sharing?

      Thank you Ashal for the reply which clearly explains your point and addresses my concern.
      Yes you are right over a period of time this 0.75% of the investment portfolio would become enormous.
      So a DIRECT mode of investing is definitely better and the advise can come for a fee.

      Appreciate your time and effort.

    Dear Vinman, you are already on track. Please add 3-4 more real estate properties and some 5-6 Kilograms of Gold. All your goals ‘ll be completed. No need to contact any paid planner. Why should one pay when the things can be arranged on her own? Keep up the good work you have done till date. By the way, when ‘ll you return to India?

      Ha Ha Ha… Ashal. I can see the satire in your reply 🙂
      Now i saw the reply. I hired a Planner finally during the time i posted the question. It was just i wanted to compare the ‘learned crowd’ opinion with my dedicated financial planner.
      I have been advised some MF recommendation (5 nos) based on the goals i indicated. Morning star Xray results for past performance for them look good but there is 40 to 50% over lap among them. Is it good to have such portfolio?

      Is it good to invest directly or should i invest through him ? For sure i will not have the ability to rebalance the portfolio for which i feel i need the advisor for sure. FP has proposed to charge me 0.75% of invested value as his fees. Is it ethical for me to ask him to process MF in direct mode since he is already charging 0.75% ?

    With all the figures and goals are in place (need to be tweaked), I think you need sound financial planning and advises from professional.

    I think you can opt for JagoInvestor’s Financial planning/coaching (from Manish/Nadish), here is the link below if you want to contact:-
