Recently we've made some announcements that may have received your attention. We've received plenty of feedback, both positive and negative, on our willingness to pay commissions to distributors now that SEBI has mandated that their fees must be disclosed. Understandably, some are worried that it's a change in stance and merely a ploy for us to grow. Of course, like any other firm we do want to grow. The better question is: who benefits from our growth?
We know greater reach will add to our growth. We know that means more fees for us. We will benefit for sure.
But here's the best part: so will you.
As we announced last week, here's what the Quantum Long Term Equity Fund's total expense ratio will look like as we grow:
We want to reiterate: As we grow, you will pay less. You will benefit. How much? Let's take an example to show how lower fees compound over time: if you were to invest with us through a regular plan (effective April 1, 2017), this is how mutual fund investing with us would stack up against a typical Fund, beginning with an initial investment of Rs. 100,000 and annual returns before fees of 15%:
|TER - Reg Plan||5 Years % Less||10 Years % Less||25 Years % Less|
|QLTEF*||1.24%||190,523 -||362,991 -||2,510,381 -|
|Scheme B||1.75%||186,291 -2.2%||347,042 -4.4%||2,243,651 -10.6%|
|Scheme C||2.00%||184,244 -3.3%||339,457 -6.5%||2,123,054 -15.4%|
|Scheme D||2.25%||182,214 -4.4%||332,021 -8.5%||2,008,694 -20.0%|
Above table is for illustrative purposes only.The above TER figures are excluding statutory levies and applicable taxes if any.
Therefore after 25 years, the difference between investing in QLTEF, with a lower expense ratio, and a sample fund with an expense ratio of 2.25% would be whopping Rs. 501,687! Imagine what you could do with an extra ˜Rs. 5 lacs in your portfolio!
Continue Focussing - On You and on Keeping Costs Low
We have always prided ourselves on being low-cost. We're not the lowest cost in the industry at present, but what we're laying out for you is our promise that that's merely a function of size. You can take our word for it, just like we held our word after years of saying that we'd pay commissions to distributors if those commissions were transparent.
Our disciplined investment process remains the same. The only thing we've sacrificed is our revenues.
At Quantum, know that our focus is always on the customer, and the simplest proof of that is in the numbers above.
