How does Maloo Investwise make money?
Mutual Fund companies that you invest in via Maloo Investwise charge a Total Expense Ratio (TER) or fund-management fee. Usually, TER ranges from 0.5 to 2.25% of your investments in a mutual fund. For advice, facilitation and regular monitoring of your portfolio, the mutual fund companies share a proportion of TER with Maloo Investwise. Typically, the fees shared ranges from 0.25% to 1.25% of your total investment amount. However, Association of Mutual Funds in India (AMFI) has recently issued instructions that they will discontinue this system in the coming years and the investment advisors are required to collect the fees directly from the clients. Accordingly, we are formulating a fee structure that we will host on the site and inform our then existing clients before its implementation.
