      Mutual Fund Regular Plan

    Where Reliance Money Manager fund with direct plan having expenses .23% rated 3 stars and return since launch is 9.13% as of April 14th 2017 by valueresearchonline.

      Mutual Fund Direct Plan

    This is like investing directly with an AMC except for, you can view your complete portfolio at one place. In Regular plans, distributor charges commission of 1.5%, up front, and 1% every year from your investments. This commission will start from day one of your investment till you redeem your complete investment. So if you are SIP investor investing every month, then you are paying a very big amount as commission to your distributor.
