    Sir I m 27 and want to invest in mf. 2000 a month and increase gradually, is it wise to open a demat account and start investing directly or I should go for sip

      Hello Chandan,
      First thing is, you don’t need demat account to invest in mutual fund.
      Second, you can invest as lumpsum or as a SIP in mutual funds. It is always advisable to invest as Systematic Investment Plans (SIPs) in equity mutual funds, as it brings in an investment discipline for the investor.
      The main advantage of SIP is “Rupee Cost Averaging”, it is an effective investment strategy that eliminates the need to time the market.
      Remember, the key to building wealth is to start investing early and to keep investing regularly for long time.
      Happy investing 🙂

      Hello Chandan, first you have to contact your employer and add your new mobile number then you can change the password in UAN.

      2. Mohammad Ali says

        Hello Chandran, you don’t need demat account for mutual fund investments. If you are planning a SIP type investment in share market then you need demat account.
