Press Release

Mumbai, Maharashtra, December 2, 2009 - Quantum Mutual Fund, India's 1st direct-to-investor mutual fund  is presently in talks with the National Stock Exchange (NSE) to explore the  possibilities of listing its funds on the newly launched Mutual Fund Service  System (MFSS). The fund house is also evaluating a similar system to be launched  by the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) sometime soon.

The MFSS  platform which was launched on November 30, 2009 is a gateway  where investors can buy and sell mutual fund schemes online, and the payments  for which will be directly debited from their bank accounts. The units purchased  or sold will be credited or debited to the investors' demat  account. It is just like buying shares listed on the NSE. Those who do not have  demat accounts will have to apply via the exchange registered  stock brokers.

Quantum  Mutual Fund is India's  29th mutual fund house and - since its inception - has offered its  products directly to investors, steering away from the traditional distribution  channels.

Commenting  on the recent developments of distribution of mutual fund products, Ajit Dayal, Chairman and President, Quantum Asset  Management Company said, "This  initiative undertaken by SEBI and the NSE to provide millions of investors  spread across 1,500 towns and cities the ability to transact in mutual funds via  the 200,000 terminals is a giant step for increasing local participation in  India's growing stock markets. Our argument and refusal to participate in  the previous regime of an opaque distribution system which continuously  compromised the interests of the investors stands vindicated. We are glad to  explore the possibility of launching Quantum Mutual Fund on this new platform  which allows investors to buy mutual funds they wish to invest in, rather than  be hostage to an era where they were made to purchase schemes that were blindly  sold to them."

In addition  to being the only fund house in the country that refused to pay any commissions  in the opaque distribution system, Quantum Mutual Fund has also kept its product  offering simple. Quantum Mutual Fund offers investors 6 schemes covering the 3  broad asset classes of stocks, fixed income, and gold. The 4 equity products are  Quantum Long Term Equity Fund, Quantum Tax Saver Fund, Quantum Index ETF, and  Quantum Equity Fund of Funds. Other than the Quantum Liquid Fund, which is the  fixed income fund, there is the Quantum Gold ETF which is supported by the  e-letter, 'The Golden Truth' Speaking on  the challenges that the MFSS might face, Ajit said, "There is still room for caution. The good news is that the cost of  buying a mutual fund may have declined by 90% - investors will now pay a  stipulated brokerage, versus an average cost of 2.5%to 4.0% under the old regime  of distributors and agents. But investors will still need to know which mutual  funds to buy; and which mutual funds to stay away  from."
