Investing in mutual funds is already convenient at your fingertips. They are easy to invest in instruments, they are flexible, and investors can even start with as little as Rs. 500 through the systematic investment plan method. There are also a few methods through which one could start investing in a mutual fund

The various ways to invest in a mutual fund:

  • By visiting the nearest branch office of the mutual fund, ISCs (Investor Service Centres), or RTAs (Registrar & Transfer Agents). 
  • Through a fund distributor who is registered with AMFI. The distributor can be either an individual, a bank, a broker, or more. 
  • Through online platforms or portals of the fund houses. 

Since every investor’s preference and skill differ, there is no one-size-fits-all. But these methods can broadly be classified as - online and offline.
