What is AMFI’s campaign - MFD Karein Shuru? 

To raise awareness on the issue of the low number of mutual fund distributors and the potential of the mutual fund distribution business, the Association of Mutual Funds in India started a campaign called “MFD Karein Shuru”. Mutual funds have emerged as an attractive investment vehicle in the past 2 decades, making it a beloved instrument among investors. The simplicity and affordability of the product have made it accessible to retail investors. The mutual fund industry has witnessed exponential growth in the last 2 decades, growing from Rs 8.90 lakh crore as on 30th November 2013 to Rs 49.05 lakh crore as on 30th November 2023 (AMFI, 2023). 

Why become MFD ( Mutual Fund Distributor)?

  1. Increasing demand- The demand for mutual funds is on the rise. The simplicity and accessibility of the product have made it a beloved investment avenue in the investor basket. The low entry barrier has allowed retail investors to park their investments with convenience. With an increase in the number of investors, the live SIPs in mutual funds are also increasing. This causes a need for someone to service this increasing number of investors.

  2. Low penetration- The population of India is 142 crore (Macrotrends, 2023), and the number of mutual fund distributors is just 1.46 lakh(AMFI, Oct 2023), meaning only 1 distributor for every 9700 people in India. This displays the potential of the mutual fund distribution business in India.

  3. High potential for expansion- The AUM to GDP ratio is just 17% as compared to the world average of 75% in 2021 (AMFI & World Bank, 2021). The mutual fund industry has a huge growth potential, which in turn is a bright opportunity for any individual aspiring to become a mutual fund distributor.

  4. Freedom- By becoming an MFD (mutual fund distributor), you don’t have to worry about reporting to someone or about achieving targets. You can work according to your own rules and at your convenience. Distributors can grow their business based on their calibre and passion.

  5. Build a legacy- With a mutual fund distribution business, you can create a legacy for your kids. Once they start their careers as mutual fund distributors, they can absorb your clients and bring in new ones, allowing them to have the background to carry on the successful legacy that you’ve built.

  6. Mutual fund distribution is a wholesome business that allows business owners to make a change in the lives of investors. Mutual fund distributors have a golden opportunity to help investors handhold them to build wealth and see their financial needs being fulfilled.

4 Steps to Become a Mutual Fund Distributor

To become a mutual fund distributor, you just need to follow some simple steps:

  1. Clear NISM V-A exam - Anyone above the age of 18 years who clears the NISM V-A examination can become a mutual fund distributor. With this examination, you can learn about the ins and outs of the mutual fund industry, allowing you to understand how to work in real-world situations.

  2. Obtain ARN and EUIN from AMFI- After clearing the NISM V-A, one must obtain an ARN (Application Reference Number) and an EUIN (Employee Unique Identification Number) to become an MFD.

  3. Empanel with a distribution platform or with AMC- Once you obtain an ARN number and EUIN number, you must empanel with a distribution platform like NJ Wealth, which can provide you with complete support in a business where you can just focus on sales. Another way to go is by empanelling with AMCs and operating independently.

  4. Start your distribution journey- Once you have done all this, you can start making a difference in investors’ lives by guiding them in making the right mutual fund investment decisions.
