Commission to Distributor on own InvestmentsNo. of comments:192 Viraf, Mumbai, 17551 On 19-Feb-2015

Why can't a Distributor of Mutual Funds get Commission on his own investments in schemes of Mutual Funds? By placing his own money in M F Schemes, he can even project his confidence and conviction to his prospective clients that he himself has also invested in the Scheme - all other things being equal. With Corporate Fixed Deposits, LIC Premiums, GIC Premiums, etc it is rightfully available, then why not here! At least now there are 'Direct' Plans, but his AUM does not increase! Please raise your voice against this gross discrepancy which I feel is an injustice to Distributors

Nice Article. Adding 2 more points to this article. <1> Distributor will not get commission on his investment. <2> Sub-broker will not get commission on his investment - Let me elaborate this point. Many ND take advantage of this NON - Exiting rule to trouble the ARN holders. Some ND''s share the commission. Some ND''s don''t share the commission. Lets Make the list who gives commission and who don''t give commission. Please the your experience with NDs regarding the commission on OWN Investment.

Distributors should be paid equivalent brokerage as in case of other investors on own investments as in all financial products. This rule is neither helping distributors nor AMC.

SANTOSH ROY ARN NO :16655 MUMBAI, 14 Aug 2015

FULLY AGREE. Earlier also I raised this issue. Distributor gets Commission on Life Insurance, Fixed Deposits, Bonds, Mediclaim Policy of done in his own name, then WHY DENY IN MUTUAL FUND. Further this rules was prevalent when Entry Load was there. It is not now. Further the AMC charges Recurring Expenses, then why deny brokerage. (under Regular Plan). Distributor invests huge money on software, but UNFORTUNATELY HE CAN NOT USE IT FOR HIS OWN INVESTMENT MANAGEMENT. Sincere Request to SEBI and AMFI to discard this rule. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE.

very useful

T S A Easwaran ARN NO :36542 coimbatore, 04 Mar 2015

It is really a great hurdle that the Distributors cant invest in regular plans. If allowed then it is very useful to show their confidence in industry by investing themselves in the schemes which they feel will give good returns.

Sonu jain ARN NO :52794 Mumbai, 26 Feb 2015

Well it doesn''t always work against us. Though the fact that I can''t claim the brokerage on my own investment pinches me, I am ok when I see lot of SMEs itching to take their own arn to invest their money but they don''t as they get no material benefit out of it. Hence the rule is working in favour too.

vinod kumar sharma ARN NO :58692 jammu, 24 Feb 2015

As per AMFI rules the distributor can not paqss on his commission earned to investor,When The distributor is investor also he can not claim commission as that will also amounts to passing on commission to investor.

Nafisa Trivedi ARN NO :2948 Mumbai, 23 Feb 2015

Totally agree with the suggestion. Distributors should get commission on their own Investment. Its ridiculous. On the contrary they should be given some extra incentives for investing, as that creates a positive initiative for the clients.

Abhay S. Udhalikar ARN NO :97713 Paratwada, 23 Feb 2015

This is really injustice with the IFA. The the current scenario where there is harsh competition of business, the commission is going low. How can the distributor survive who''s family is totally depend on his commission income. If distributor is investing in MF that means he can confidently represent his statement before his client. But if he don''t get commission on his own fund then it is the most HOPELESS thing. What the thing I never understand about MF Industry is that where ever Industry wants cost cutting they have only one thing for that. That is distributors. Actual think is that they don''t want to survive distributors. They really what to make us Suicide.

Surender kumar sharma ARN NO :65627 Delhi, 23 Feb 2015

Now a days investors are well educated & it is a myth that he will get influenced by distributors investment.More over distributor will invest his own money only in good schemes rather in less remunerative schemes to influence the investor.Denying commission to distributor''s own investment is not justified.

Ashok Kumar Sethi ARN NO :92040 Delhi, 22 Feb 2015

I fully agree with the suggestion and would support this move to extend commission to the Distributor of MF in the best interest of the concerned AMCs as well as for the Distributor himself. It is right step for the Distributor to prove and explain to prospecting investors to get convinced. I don''t find any fault in such investment because the Distributors may be also the investors.

There is no logic/justification barring commission to IFA on his own investment while Insurance , Post Office and Fixed Deposits Agents are getting the commission on their own investment. IFA having multiple ARN Nos in the name of their family members are managing the investment by inter changing the investment and getting the commission as well saving the tax but Individual ARN holder is the great sufferer. AMFI/SEBI should review the rules and consider it favorably.

When Insurance companies are paying commissions to the distributors on own investments why can''t we get commission on our own investments. This issue to be clarified by SEBI.

Devendra Mhatre ARN NO :ARN-2487 Mumbai, 20 Feb 2015

It is high time that SEBI or AMFI or any other body who want to bring out certain changes in rules/regulations which affect the conduct of doing business for AMCs, Distributors and Investors should first thoroughly discuss the issue in open forum, get feedback, explain their logic behind the change of rules, take every stakeholder into confidence, make indepth study with regard to the impact it will have on each stakeholder. There is no need for rushing through the change in rules without fully knowing its impact. Hope they realise that they are not GOD to think that they know all and that they know best. Last few years we all have experienced the arbitrariness of rules and regulations. The "No Commission for Distributors investment" has no logic, if at all it may be "Twisted Logic" We want regulatory body to have practical approach, open to ideas for enhancing "investing experience" for Investor, Distributor and AMCs.

Autocrats wearing White Collars sitting in the AC cabins and making policies have never got into the grind to earn their meals. And AMCs are acting like bafoons [Unlike Insurance Companies who out-rightly refused any diktat from the Regulator] and AMCs currently are just keeping busy creating Content to sell funds On-line, as they know the day is not far away when there will be no Mutual Fund agents. And all this is done in the name of ''''Stopping Mis-selling''''. Ask these Autocrates and Bafoons, that if the On-Line Direct Fund Buying yields better Returns, then Mutual Fund sales on a Distributor ARN is not a Mis-selling ? The Mis-selling in Mutual Funds was largely driven by the Banks and some HNIs leading Franchisee based selling, that too in order to achieve ambitious targets. So instead of stopping Banks to sell Mutual Funds, and Franchisees the rules implemented were all wrong, as it impacted the smaller individual ARN holder. I can only wish them a Wisdom.

Sukanta Kumar Palo ARN NO :54438 Bhubaneswar, 20 Feb 2015

MUTUAL FUND DISTRIBUTOR FRATERNITY IS ALWAYS AT RECEIVING END . IF DISTRIBUTOR GETS BROKERAGES FOR HIS OWN INVESTMENTS IN OTHER FINANCIAL PRODUCTS LIKE FD , LIC ETC THEN WHY NOT FROM MF INDUSTRY ? THIS INDICATES THERE IS NO COORDINATION IN THE DIFFERENT REGULATORS. IF REGULATOR OR INDUSTRY BUREAUCRATS WANTS TO GROW MF INDUSTRY & MORE PARTICIPATION IN MF INVESTMENTS , THIS RULE MUST BE REMOVED . DISTRIBUTORS OWN INVESTMENTS CAN BE A MAJOR PIE OF INDUSTRY & CAN INCREASE INDUSTRY TOTAL AUM .

Looking deeply to the matter I find no definitive reason as to why commission is not paid. We are in a distribution business of such a product which if we need, we have to buy it from another distributor at his distribution price( to avoid confusion of commission being generated in the distributor,s ARN).

As the distributor is concern, he is providing his/ her client the service of family planner and give awareness about the mutual funds,only on whole population more than 65% r unaware of mutual funds ie no knowledge has been yet to most of the indian population.There will always be given the commission whether placiing his/ her investment and also from the clients.This is to promote the mutual funds AMC.In indian culture still ,no client easily walk to the distributor to purchase the mutual funds. Still now the distributor has to convence or forced people to purchase mutual funds.People are lack of knowedlge about mutual funds.

ARINDAM SINHA ARN NO :24836 JAMSHEDPUR, 19 Feb 2015

I have been urging this to the MF industry for a long time now. AMCs have just been telling me that it was a "ancient" practice which they were just adhering to. They have, without proof, been even citing that the US MF industry too doesn''t allow Distributors to invest in MF Schemes in their own name (as the First Holder). The bar today which prohibits a MF Distributor from putting his/her own money in his own name in the MF Schemes that he is often found selling to his clients (there have also been allegations that Distributors indulge in mis-selling schemes) often forces him to think that the AMCs perhaps consider Distributor''s money as ill-gotten, tainted or perhaps even havala money! Is that so? Then why deploy us to canvass for your schemes? Or why else the restriction on putting his/her own money in Schemes which could act as proof of his confidence in the MF Scheme/s he is trying to sell to his clients? In this competitive age where the trend is towards ''Direct'' investment, it is high time that the MF industry recognized our (Distributors'') money to be as clean as that of our clients'' and allowed us to invest in schemes in our own name (as a First Holder) and earn some extra commission from his own investments.

But he could jolly well do the same investment through some other advisor or distributor with some arrangement !!! That doesn''t speak well nor is it ethical. But I cannot understand the reason behind such rule prohibiting the commission on his own investment - especially that doesn''t get him any extra benefit or preferential treatment over and above the applicable commission. Will the Industry think over this issue with an open mind ??

RAJENDRA ADYA ARN NO :79580 Vadodara, 19 Feb 2015

I 100% agree with you that we as a MF Advisor should very much get the Commissions on our Own Investments in MF and you rightly said we can show to our client our portfolio and build a confidence among them that if we can invest and earn out of the product and it would be more convening to them. Secondly, even though we know that ELSS Gives more returns than any other products we are not able to invest in them as we do not get any thing out of that investment and we loose the gains that we should get out of them rather than putting our money into some other low return products. I strongly support your mission of getting commissions to us on our own investment in MF. Regards Rajendra Adya

Narendra Kumar Sharma ARN NO :72881 Meerut, 19 Feb 2015

Yes it is quite convincing that distributor also must be provided with commission in his own investment like insurance & other avenues. It will enhance not only distributor''s AUM but also with this more awareness and more penetration can be made in public for which AMFI & SEBI are working hard for the involvement of retail investor.

I purchase my ULIS plan form LIC NOMURA mf. I purchase ULIS plan from my friend, then he get commission. What does it means? If I want commission, then put my business in other ARN?

This is because people wearing White Collars sitting in the AC cabins and making policies have not got the grind to earn their meals. And the AMCs [Unlike Insurance Companies] are just busy creating Content to sell funds On-line, anticipating the eviction on the Agent community. All this is done in the name of ''Stopping Mis-selling'', which was largely done by the Banks in order to achieve ambitious targets. So instead of stopping Banks to sell Mutual Funds, the rules implemented were all wrong. I can only wish them a Wisdom.

Insurance companies are paying agents on their own policies for decades, even before IRDA came as regulator. They too continued this practice finding nothing wrong in it. UTI was paying commission on own investments of agents, in US 64 and MIP schemes untill 1996/97. They stopped after private AMCs came in market. SEBI decided to discontinue it for the reasons best known to them. There was no consultative paper circulated seeking views. No discussions. No onafide reasons sighted. I am opinion that there is nothing illegle, un ethical, hazardous in paying commissions in these cases. SEBI has introduced a ridiculous practice og one agent investing under other agent''s code. With UTI Chairman as SEBI Chairman I hope such ridiculous practices will be immediately discontinued.

I fully agree with you Virafji. This illogical rule is just for the sake of it, there is no reason worth the name behind it. There is no ethical dilemma for anybody, if this archaic rule is abolished. I also treat myself as my client and there is no reason why I; as a distributor should not get brokerage on my investments. Just see what distributors do to avoid such a irksome and irrational rule. Someone has to invest in his wife''s name, if she is a housewife, another has to enter into a mutual agreement with a fellow distributor to invest similar amounts under one-another''s ARN code. I personally invest in my mother''s name, but still I have to in ELSS in my own name to get 80C tax breaks. If one invests into direct mode, how can he or she ask their clients not to go for direct mode. No doubt, that if we go for direct mode, we save 60-70 odd paisa per Rs. 100 of investments. But this is not the issue. I; as a distributor; definitely like that my investments should reflect under my ARN an increase my AUM. I have my own website and given IDs to all of my clients. Today, even if I die, my clients need not have to bother about their investments, because they can get their investment details at the click of a button. But, due to this archaic rule by SEBI, I can''t avail this facility for myself. Are SEBI, AMCs and AMFI signalling to us that either we should stop investing into mutual fund or go for direct mode? Why this warning is not given for direct mode that " ''self-medication'' is perfect recipe for disaster. INVESTORS BEWARE".

This can surely help to gain their confidence. And since the investments done in regular mode are liable for more expense ratio unlike direct mode, companies should have no problem in paying commissions out of these expenses. Now for those who put an argument here that we should invest in direct mode, how can we convince other people to invest through us by investing our own fund in direct mode? And I have experienced the direct mode investments and it is really pathetic tracking the fund performance in direct mode and I really consider our investors lucky and can understand the value & convenience we provide them as against direct mode.
