Are you a mutual fund investor from more-the-merrier club? Even if you are not exactly, it is likely that you hold more than one fund belonging to different fund houses. If you have too many funds from different fund houses, chances are you have either outsourced your investment job to a financial planner or have little idea how each of your investment is doing or worse have left the funds where you invested them.
You can turn this around after reading this piece of information. Up-to-date information of your investments across different fund houses, profits made and balances in your account can be checked online at one go.
Consolidated mutual fund statement
Mutual funds do not themselves maintain records of each transaction such as buying, selling, switching, changing account details etc you make as an investor. This is outsourced to Registrar & Transfer Agents (RTA). Presently most mutual fund Asset Management Companies (AMCs) have either CAMS or Karvy as their registrar. Some of them have their own ones like Deutsche Mutual Fund, Franklin Templeton Mutual Fund, Sundaram Mutual Fund and BNP Paribas Mutual Fund.
Each of these registrars would allow you to view transaction statement, balance statement, capital gains statement and portfolio statement online for funds of AMCs whose registrar they are. You just need to enter the email id you registered with the AMCs and the information is emailed to your account. However if some of your funds have Karvy as registrar, some as Franklin Templeton and some as CAMS it is still possible for you to do a neat job of viewing a Consolidated Account Statement of investments across these three RTAs for that month. It is labeled CAS-CAMS+Karvy+FTAMIL.
How to get consolidated account statement
All the information you need to be ready with is your registered email id. This should be the same one you provided while investing in those different funds serviced by CAMS, Karvy or FTamil. You can enter it along with a password of your choice. Remember the password because you will need it while opening the PDF file of your requested report that will be sent to your inbox.
If you are not sure what email id was registered you can go back to your inboxes and check transaction statement from your AMC to find it. When you are ready go to http://www.mutualfunds.fintotal.com/Get-statement/1114 and enter email id.
Note that this Common Account Statement will only reflect transactions of the previous month. Don't expect to see your entire mutual funds' transaction history or balances in it. In order to prevent spamming you will not be allowed to do this more than twice a day or 10 times a month (and we're sure that's more than you'd ever try!).
That's not all
Each of the registrars provide details of your short term and long term Capital Gains (in other words profit on your investments) with indexation benefit for current and previous year on request. The report also has details of Dividends paid out to you. You can go for a Mailback service and the PDF file will be emailed to you containing details on returns from all funds serviced by that particular registrar.
If you wish to see your portfolio or your transaction details over a certain period you can select the options for these and the reports will be mailed to your inbox of the registered email id.
You can request for a Mailback service to see just the balances on various funds you have invested in that are serviced by a particular RTA. A PDF report will be sent to your email id with summary of balances on a particular date in your investments across AMCs serviced by the registrar.
CAMS also has an enhanced Active Statement facility which not only gives a consolidated report on funds serviced by it but also enables you to make transaction requests and update account through it. Again your email id should have been registered with all your funds serviced by CAMS for this facility.
