How is following Investactive different from investing in a mutual fund?
1) Unlike a mutual fund where bias is typically of the main fund manager or CIO, Investactive expresses the independent opinions of multiple analysts – its almost like having your own army of fund managers!
2) Unlike mutual funds where expenses can be as much as 2.5% of NAV apart from brokerage, Investactive is a free service for our clients – no other charges apart from brokerage
3) No exit loads!
4) Mutual Funds are designed for the long term – hence the fund manager may stay largely invested all through sharp market moves while Investactive , in bad conditions, may recommend going to 30% cash levels when markets don’t support investing.
5) Unlike mutual funds where a substantially investment for the longer term, Investactive suggests short to mid term trades of upto 30% of your value as well.
6) However, unlike mutual funds where the capital gain/ sale date is when you actually redeem units, in Investactive, each trade you do is separately taxed as per the period held. A price to pay for much superior performance.
7) Finally, a mutual fund invests as a pool while here you may choose not to follow all our recommendations and therefore, customization is possible as well!
