The Big Fish in the Distrubution business are only going to grow while 66% of the distributors feel that this is a BIG NEGATIVE. I look at it positively, with the gap between Direct and Regular Plans narrowing down, investors will want to switch back to Regular Plans. The Volumes are going up in MFs every year. We should focus on procuring Volumes and the ease at which one can procure business than the brokerage rate.

People are more wise investing through distributors learning every ting den simply switching direct ...IFA situation really tuff ....time waste,energy,resource...everthing smash... Fee model is not work out in 2nlevel cities n towns ...ppl are crying to give atleast photocopy(Xreox) money...If any one encourage you to fee model with example showing (Doctors fee based business model) dats really shit...it does not work in dis society...

Let April month come and then see if TER is good or bad. The whole American economy is based on incentivisation and competitition. But in India ? It is beaurocrats all the way. 1/3rd IFAs have already diversified to various business verticals . They have given up. Some of the national distributors are literally struggling to pay the headcount. If they have to share the meager brokerage with their empaneled distributors , you can imagine how much the distributors would get finally in their hands. But then in the seminars you will find people praising the regulator's move . This is called Stockholm Syndrome. I request all the IFAs to google it up and see the meaning of it. It exactly fits . Let these seminar guys keep on fooling all the people all the time. Even Arnab Goswami can't tackle these people. Now, do the AMCs have the capacity to service the clients directly if IFAs move out ? After all this is what the AMCs and Regulators want. Why AMCs are keeping quite on this service issue.Is it not affecting investor interest.
