03 June 2010, Mumbai:

Quantum Mutual Fund, India's 1st direct to investor mutual fund recently announced a reduced expense ratio for their Quantum Long Term Equity Fund.

Beginning June 1, 2010 the Quantum Long Term Equity Fund’s expense ratio has been reduced from 2.05% to 1.5%.
“Quantum Mutual Fund has always aimed to enhance investor benefit, by adopting a direct to investor approach. The reduction in the expense ratio of our flagship product will ensure better returns to investors, with more of their subscription money actually getting invested,” said Jimmy A Patel, Chief Executive Officer, Quantum Mutual Fund.

Commenting on the need to keep investor benefit at the forefront, Ajit Dayal, Director, Quantum Mutual Fund, said, “The Quantum Long Term Equity Fund endeavors to focus on a disciplined and structured investment process that follows the "value” style of investing which, we believe, offer investors sustainable long-term returns with sensible risks.

“The Quantum philosophy is clear: we will always work for the benefit of the investors and focus on keeping costs low. There will never be any compromise on that. We are the smallest mutual fund in terms of Assets under Management and, yet, our performance numbers have been fairly consistent: We tend to be ranked in the Top 25% of our peer group for many time periods. I am shocked to see that equity funds with assets under management of thousands of crores of rupees have expense ratios that are higher than our expense ratio. Mutual funds with larger assets should have lower expense ratios – that is the benefit of operational leverage: spreading your fixed costs over a larger pool of fund assets. But that is clearly not the case. It would be interesting to see how much of those expenses are payments made to distributors – payments made from the pockets of the investors. Quantum Mutual Fund’s commitment is to help you invest your savings in low-cost, sensible products. This is evident from our simple and easy-to-understand mutual fund products which you can buy directly on our website or on the stock exchange. I hope you will walk with us along the Path to Profit!”
