What Should be your Investment Strategy in the Current market scenario and where should
you be investing now - Equity, Debt or Gold?
By Mr. Rajiv Bajaj- VC & MD Bajaj Capital
As published in The Economic Times Wealth "200th Special Issue" on Monday, October 6, 2014
While Sebi's 2013 investment advisory guidelines are encouraging for financial advisors who
want to build a fee-based model, the shift towards it will take time, says Rajiv Bajaj in an
interview with The Economic Times – Wealth 200th Edition.
Que: The mutual fund industry has been launching lots of closed-end funds. What are the
pros and cons of these funds for investors?

Closed-end debt funds have been very popular for long, especially FMPs (fixed maturity plans)
and capital protection oriented funds, to name a few. While closed-end debt funds take care of
issues like interest-rate movements, they also give comfort to the fund manager as he knows the
time horizon of the fund.

The same logic applies on the equity side. ELSS funds are a case in point. Because of the three-
year lock-in, past performance shows that fund managers have been able to do a consistent job
with these funds over decades. Recently, closed-end mid- and small-cap funds and value funds
have fared well, like Sundaram Micro Cap, ICICI Value Fund, and so on.

Their disadvantage obviously is the lack of liquidity. Hence, only investors with free cash flows
and those looking to accumulate wealth should invest in these funds.

We are fussy about choosing closed-end funds for our clients. We do not consider them unless
there is a genuinely good investment idea where the fund manager can reap the benefit of patient
Que: What are the common mistakes investors commit during sharp bull runs of the type
we have witnessed in recent months?
In such times, investors' mistakes arise from extrapolation and scepticism. Extrapolation means
that investors tend to extrapolate recent performance into the near future. So if the markets have
risen by 50 per cent in the past one year, they expect another 50 per cent rise in the next one
year. Based on the theory of mean reversion, one should actually expect a subpar performance in
the near term if the markets have risen sharply in recent times.

Scepticism refers to the tendency of investors who have missed the rally to doubt the markets.
They feel that the markets have risen too much, too soon and should come down. They wait to
buy on dips that are elusive. By the time they realize their mistake, it's too late and they have
missed the bus. In either case, it is difficult for investors to gather the courage to invest large
amounts on a lump sum basis. A prudent way to invest after a sharp rally is to stagger
investments by making use of systematic transfer plans (STP) and SIPs.

Que: While equities have been doing well, gold has been under-performing. What would
your advice be regarding this asset class?
Gold under-performs when real interest rates are positive. With QE tapering and the likely rise in
interest rates in 2015 in the US, the under-performance of gold is not surprising.

However, gold should be treated as a hedge in these times. Global volatility, represented by VIX
indices for stock markets, is near all-time lows and crude oil prices are at sub-$100 levels. But
with continuing strife in the Middle East and Ukraine, gold at approximately $1,220 per ounce is
an attractive hedge against a rise in volatility. We believe investors should allocate 5-10 per cent
of their portfolio to gold.

Que: Regarding debt mutual funds, the expected capital gains due to decline in interest
rates has not happened for a long while. This year's Budget also made the tax provisions
for debt funds more unfavourable. What would your advice to investors be regarding these
Maintain a diversified sub-asset allocation to them. Debt funds follow two strategies: duration
and accrual. While long-duration funds have underperformed over the past 14-15 months, short
duration and accrual strategies have delivered returns in high single digits. The outlook for long-
duration funds remains uncertain. Low oil prices, moderating core inflation and prospects of
improving fiscal deficit are positive for them. But the prospect of a rise in US interest rates is
negative. The risk-reward dynamic remains unfavourable for them.

Short duration and accrual funds are more favourably placed. The yield curve is flat at present
and for it to normalise, short-term yields need to come down. Accrual continues to be attractive
as corporate bond spreads are high and are likely to fall because of rating upgrades. Investors
should hence have more allocation to short duration and accrual strategies in debt.

The change of treatment of long-term capital gains from 1 to 3 years has not made much
difference to patient retail investors. Since inflation has been high in recent years, the incidence
of capital gains tax after indexation has been minimal. So investors are happy to stay put. Mutual
funds have been proactive in offering the roll over mechanism in less than 3-year FMPs to
investors. Most investors have availed of this option.

Que: How financial planning oriented is your advice? And to what extent are Indian
customers willing to pay for financial advice?
A financial planning based approach is at the core of Bajaj Capital's business strategy. We do not
suggest any product to a client unless we have done his basic need analysis and understood his
goals. Today more than 50 per cent of our clients voluntarily go for our 360° financial
assessment where we take a detailed look at their cash flows and lifetime financial goals before
they choose any product for investment through us.
Shifting to a totally fee-based model is going to be gradual. But I must say that SEBI's
investment advisory guidelines of 2013 are a big boost for players who want to build a feebased
model in the country. We have also been licensed by SEBI to be investment advisors and will
launch our fee-only service for a specific segment of the market very shortly.

Role in Innovation in Financial Products and Services

According to, Innovation in financial services: A McKinsey Global Survey, a recent McKinsey
Quarterly survey found that financial-services executives see innovation as important to the
performance of their companies. “They view product innovation as most important and expect a
growing role for business model innovation.” It also found that a majority of executives say
innovation is more challenging for financial-services firms than for other companies, mostly
because of short-term financial pressure. Executives rate their companies as no better than
adequate at fostering innovation through practices such as using consumer insights to drive new
ideas and dedicating people, processes, and funds to innovation and most executives expect their
company’s spending on innovation to increase. Scott J. Edgett in The New Product Development
Process for Commercial Financial Services outlines why the Financial Services need to focus on
new product development and better process. He lists some of the aspects affecting the current
situation which involves the combined pressures of:

 Increased competition
 Rapidly changing marketplace
 New technology
 New and pending legislative changes

“The attention of senior executives in the financial services industry is increasingly being
focused on how well the new product development process is working within their institutions.”
It is imperative to be able to design, develop, and launch new products that are winners [Edgett,
Scott J.]. The study showed that a success rate of only 62.5% of projects launched were a
commercial success, leaving significant room for improvement. The study also found that most
companies take short cuts and the execution of the product process was never fully completed
and generally only had a “moderate quality of execution”. It has been discovered that
“institutions that follow a systematic process have greater success.” So it is imperative to look at
this with regards to research and development, without a successful product development process
RD&I will not be utilized to its full potential.

Constant innovation key to success

A constant attempt at innovation, both in terms of product and service, holds the key for success
of business in a competitive world, where consumer satisfaction is the main mantra, Mr V.R.
Muthu, Chief Executive Officer, Idhayam Group of Companies, Virudhunagar, has said.
Inaugurating the Business Line Club at the Alagappa University, here, Mr Muthu said innovation
for improving the quality of the product is necessary, as consumers would reject an inferior
product. Innovation helps make a difference and attracts a consumer to a particular brand.
Advertisements are an effort towards reaching the consumer and the television has proved to be a
powerful medium. Impressed by an advertisement a consumer might chose to buy a product
initially but would not continue to do so if it is of inferior quality, he observed.

However, quality alone would not be enough in a competitive world. If the market is to be
expanded, one must know the preferences of the consumers and provide the product/ service
according to their needs. This has led to a search for value addition in every product that comes
to the market today. It must be realised that innovation happens only when knowledge is
acquired and the society that acquires the necessary knowledge becomes the leader in the field
and the company that brings the same to application becomes the leader in the chosen field.
Fundamentally, the research towards continuous improvement is the bedrock of development and
success, he said.

A great deal of innovation in the industry takes place at the level of index providers such as
Stoxx, which is now exploring the opportunities opened up its new ownership structure
following the purchase of the stake previously held by Dow Jones by existing shareholders
Deutsche Börse and Six Group. According to Konrad Sippel, responsible for global product
development and sales at the firm, the change not only allows Stoxx to absorb the index
businesses of its two shareholders into a combined business but will enable it to extend its focus,
previously limited to Europe under the agreement with Dow Jones, to the global market. “When
developing new indices we usually work very closely with the market and with our in-house
experts,” he says. “We have a group of financial engineers that continuously bring up innovative
ideas, test them in the market and develop them further in collaboration with market participants.
We also listen to what market participants need and create custom and branded solutions for our
clients. The best example of that is probably the series of optimised sector indices launched in
the past year.”

Sippel believes the shift toward ever-greater customisation is set to intensify. “Index
development trends are constantly moving toward individualisation,” he says. “The time of the
big benchmarks has passed in some respects – those areas of the market are well covered.
However, we see increasing demand from clients seeking individual solutions in terms of
risk/return profile, specific market exposure and specific risk exposure, and we are working hard
to provide our clients with the right framework for these indices.” Among the most active
developers of new products is db x-trackers, the ETF business launched by Deutsche Bank. “We
have been very innovative over the past year, for instance with the launch of our hedge fund
ETF,” says Simon Klein, head of db x-trackers sales for continental Europe. “We were the first
ETF provider to launch a product based on hedge fund exposure, and we are now bringing
leveraged long and short ETFs to the market. “We will also focus on illiquid asset classes such as
the EPRA real estate indices, and create more unique products such as our recently-launched
China A-share ETF, which was the first Ucits III-compliant ETF investing on China A-shares. In
addition, we also recently launched our exchange-traded commodity platform, and we plan to list
another 30 ETCs by the end of the year.”

Exchange-traded commodities have been a major growth area during the crisis period and more
providers are coming into the market (another recent entrant is UBS). However, pride of place is
held by ETF Securities, whose founders launched the ETC concept in Australia in the early
2000s and which now has an extensive commodities platform spanning Europe, the US, Japan
and Australia. While its ETC platform continues to expand geographically, ETF Securities has
also been active in other areas, such as the launch of ETF Exchange, an ETF platform backed by
a consortium of banks. “So far we have Barclays, Citibank, Merrill Lynch and Rabobank on the
platform,” says head of sales Scott Thompson. “The banks increasingly want to get involved in
the growth of ETFs, but it’s an expensive business with a high fixed cost base. Joining a platform
allows those costs to be shared and the banks to leverage their distribution capabilities.

India's mutual fund market is booming, with new players and financial products entering the
market. Existing players are introducing new investment avenues and innovations in existing
schemes - the latest being facilities for free insurance. Service innovations include gold exchange
traded funds, capital protection funds and funds focussing on real estate. "Service and product
innovations are a must in today's scenario, as they not only help in attracting investors, but also
increase sales of existing schemes," said R S Srinivas Jain, chief marketing officer, SBI Funds
Management Pvt Ltd. Investors must also look at the quality of service provided by the mutual
fund, he added. "The 70% of payments our clients have made electronically is the highest figure
in the industry, according to available data. We aim to increase this to 85% this fiscal. Efforts are
on to tie-up with other banks to make payments hassle-free and timely," Jain added.

SBI Funds claims the industry is still developing, and there is a lot of scope for new players as
well as existing ones, since the total investments in the industry still lag behind that in developed
and other developing countries. "Investments in the industry, as measured by assets under
management, is less than 10% of GDP. This is less than half the figure in Japan and Korea. New
players are not a serious threat, though existing players may witness a marginal fall in their
share. The industry has enough scope for both to exist simultaneously," said Achal Kumar
Gupta, managing director, SBI Funds Management. Quoting a recent McKinsey report, he said
the industry was poised to grow at a compounded annual rate of 30-35% over the next five years.
"The future of the industry looks good, but education and awareness among investors, is
required, as these act as a hurdle to growth," he added.

Customer Orientation in Designing Mutual Fund Products

The mutual fund industry in India has evolved little over three decades but the real impetus has
come after the changes in the mutual fund regulations in early 80s. Private and foreign mutual
funds are operating in the Indian market and constitute a substantial portion of the mutual fund
industry. Today the industry consists of Unit Trust of India, mutual funds sponsored by public
sector banks and insurance corporations, private and foreign mutual funds. Investors are
constantly being bombarded by questions concerning their risk profile. Either a money market or
guilt fund is targeted for the risk averse or a low graded company offering a high return on its
fixed deposits. Banks like Citibank , ANZ Grindlays, Deutsche bank, Hongkong bank,
Commerze bank, Banque nationale de Paris and HDFC bank are not only aggressively marketing
funds many are also planning to launch their own. The list of potential entrants includes ABN
Amro, ANZ Grindlays, Hongkong bank and Jammu and Kashmir bank.

The Reserve Bank’s Currency and Finance report 1997-1998 shows that the investors’ appetite
for risk has diminished considerably. As much as 46% of the financial savings of the household
sector found its way back to bank deposits; 12% went in to Government savings plans and 18%
in to provident funds. Only a miniscule 2% wound up in the capital market and 4% in company
deposits. The mutual fund product designers have identified a strategic gap in the product
offering in the capital market and now are fighting a loosing battle with government savings
plans, bank deposits and provident funds. They are providing cheque facility on money market
mutual funds to make them more enticing and guilt funds for the risk averse.

Product innovations and new product combinations have started rolling in to the Indian market.
GIC mutual fund has launched an open-ended scheme named as GIC D’MAT in which 71 demat
scripts having a weight of nearly seventy- percent in the sensex and the Nifty are being marked
for trading. The specialty of this new product is that investors will have an opportunity to
exchange their holdings of scrips, which are available for dematerialization with units of this
scheme. There are 252 mutual fund schemes and are likely to go higher in the future. The reason
for launching of these large number of mutual fund products is the distributed pattern of
investment behavior of Indian small investor .The purchase decision of a mutual fund is largely
dependant upon investors level of savings, investment pattern and the risk profile.

Many managers are now taking interest in designing mutual fund products with multi feature
options for investors. Customers are often benefited from the improvements that are offered by
new features, for example by enhanced quality products [Garvin (1984)]. These additions of
features also offer advantages to others in the value chain. For the mutual fund agents new
features provide new sales arguments in seller buyer interaction. New features do not only infuse
single products but also entire product categories periodically with new lease of life [Broadbent
(1980), Dowdy W.L. (1986)]. Based on the literature [Kotler (2000), Nicholas, (1992), Sen.
(1996), Starr(1992)] a product feature is defined as each identifiable aspect of the total offering
that a critical reference group perceives and evaluates as an “extra” to a known standard among
comparable products. The success of a mutual fund and its capacity largely depends on its ability
to mobilize funds.

On the total 252 mutual fund schemes are now available to the buyers out of which 103 are
income schemes and 94 are growth schemes. The rest are hybrids. The total assets under all
mutual funds are Rs. 90,685.25 crores. The share of Unit Trust of India continues to be stagnant
at 71 percent (64,637.37 crore). Private players now command assets of 17041.34 crore (19%).
Public sector funds are holding the least (10%) with Rs. 9006.54 crore assets. The Government
owned banks and UTI have 32 assured return schemes where as no private sector mutual funds
offer assured returns. The securities scam, unprecedented boom and the slow down in the
economy saw the Indian stock market enters through a prolonged phase of instability. Therefore
investor’s preferences shift from equity funds to fixed income and debt instruments. Due to the
reduction in the interest rate in USA the Indian bond market rallied in expectation of a similar
cut, debt funds staged a come back. Investors realize that an interest rate cut reduces the market
yield and hence, increases the demand for long term debt papers bearing high coupon rates. The
average annualized return for the quarter in debt funds was 14.64 which were much higher than
the returns posted by any other debt based investment instruments on a post tax basis.

The new mutual fund product launches had seen many of the equity based funds in the market
during this period, primarily to attract investors who would like to take advantage of the low
prices in the stock market but majority of the funds launched were debt funds. The budget has
also supported the cause of debt fund rather than equity due to a lower dividend distribution tax.
The investors hesitate to invest in the equity fund when the market is down but the marketing
and distribution cost of these incurred during this period does not reflect a rise in the investors’
choice. As a product manager one is ought to design mutual fund products, which shall combine
an optimal mix of return, risk liquidity and safety for the small investors.

Loading of Selected Variables on Key Factors

It is evident from the analysis that the changing preferences of the investor create many new
needs, which may be controlled by key determinants. Table- V depicts that the first factor
identified with product features are awareness of attribute of the product, hassle free trading,
exclusivity for small investors, ownership of the product, technology, lock in period and brand
name. These attributes can be grouped under Factor- 1 and termed as Core Product. These are
the core part of a mutual fund product, which are common expectation of any customer while
making a purchase decision. The second factor is designated Performance Factor on the basis
of the loaded variables. The data set of the Factor-2 loading indicates that among various product
feature variables, performance of the fund, safety, liquidity, regular income, tax benefit,
emergency need fulfillment attributes are found to be important by customers for making a brand
choice. This is an indicator that by sheer name of the company no mutual fund product is going
to survive and grow in the market. This is supported by the recent series of poor performances of
UTI in the Indian Market. People are no more looking in to the name for making decision. The
market has moved purely from a market of single choice to a competitive choice.

This kind of consumer orientation is good for the Indian market. It not only offers a basket of
products to choose from but also makes the fund managers to think and take prudent decision
regarding the investment and market capitalization. Unless the fund provides growth equipped
with assured return and high liquidity the market response is going to be poor. While designing a
mutual fund product the product manager has to be concerned about offering a mix of
combination in risk return and liquidity. Thus performance factor of the fund expressed in its
NAV details is an influential variable in the purchase decision of the investor making it the most
tangible component visible to the investor in the offering.

It shows the significance for transparency, service behaviors and delivery schedule. This factor
suggests that the process of delivery should be prompt and on time. An investor’s service
expectation statement should be the vision for the organization to aspire for. This component of
service augmentation or “Augment Part” of the product makes it mandatory on the part of the
fund manager to provide services in a continuous basis so that the customer stays loyal and
happy with the fund and responds to changing need of the customers
It includes attributes such as sponsor reputation, advertisements, Broker/Agents
recommendations, friend/ relative suggestion. This element is more important in a competitive
market where most of the product offerings are similar and the customer finds it difficult to take
a decision. In an advanced and matured market like that of urban India what needs to be done for
the success of a mutual fund is a high degree of persuasive communication than the current
practice. Present communication and promotions about various mutual fund products in India are
informative only. As the market has advanced to a higher level what needs to be done is to
promote own brands than promoting the category only for attracting investors of mutual fund.
The concept of brand image and market goodwill generated out of past performance of mutual
fund is explained by the term sponsor reputation.

It clearly indicates the combination of three attributes such as performance guarantee, assured
return and degree of capital appreciation. This factor is termed as investor’s confidence factor,
which is built over a period of time due to consistency in performance and transparency in
market behavior. The five factors explained above are the proposed product combinations of a
mutual fund offering to the investors. If the product designers will be careful about these key
issues while designing a brand of mutual fund then only the brand will see a higher customer
response and enjoy market success.

Critical Risk Factors of Product Innovation

For financial institutions, product innovation entails both opportunity and risk. Opportunities are
numerous and include, for example: providing better service offerings to respond to increasingly
dynamic markets, deregulation and shifting industry boundaries to eliminate the traditional
barriers of market entry; and learning new ways to narrow the gap to the world leading
competitors. At the same time, product innovation is extremely risky. Unfortunately, the rate of
success tends to be low, and the outcome tends to be poor. The risk of innovation is additionally
magnified by the own risk attribute of financial services industry. To control the risk and achieve
better performance of product innovation, financial institutions should identify the critical risks
and enrich the methods of risk management.

Compared with abundant studies for the risk management of technological innovation for
manufacturing sector, only in recent years have studies on new product success factors been
undertaken in the financial services sector. As same as the development course of studies for
technological innovation, the studies for risk in financial product innovation firstly begin with
the determinant factors to success and failure, for the failure is the highest risk in innovation. An
important conclusion drawn from these studies is that how companies orchestrate their
development activities has a significant impact on new service performance. In other words,
successful new services rarely happen by chance. Rather, they are the result of a well-designed
organizational effort and a carefully coordinated new service development process. Edgett also
suggests that the new product process impacts the success rates of new commercial financial
services, and success is manageable on the basis of a rigorous new product process, early upfront
marketing and quality of execution. Over time, financial institutions should be in a position to
reap the competitive benefits of a “high quality” new product process. For success factors of
financial product innovation, Easingwood and Storey reveal these key factors as internal
marketing and synergy, communications strategy, overall quality, technological advantage, use
of market research, distribution support, direct mail support, and responsiveness. By further
study, they suggest that the success of a new financial product should owe to not a unique factor,
but at least four factors as overall quality, discrepant product, product synergy, and use of
technology. De Brentani uncovers six factors appear to provide a good description of the key
dimensions that encompass the development of new industrial services in financial firms
including formal up-front design and evaluation, formal and extensive launch programme,
supportive and high-involvement NSD environment, marketing-dominated NSD process,
customer-driven NSD, and expert-driven NSD. Edgett and Parkinson abstract eleven
interpretable factors as organizational factor, resource allocation, formalization, preliminary
assessment, market research, design testing, business/financial analysis, product launch
effectiveness, project updates, market synergy, and market potential. Harrison reckons the
material factors which determines the success of a new financial service include formal
preliminary design and assessment, formal and elaborate launch process, supportive and highly
compatible environment, strong market orientation, customer orientation ensuring idea steps
from the customer, importance of internal experts in the process of idea generation and new
product plan, product with significant different from other products in the marker. Moreover, for
imitative innovation, speed of response and control of cost are necessary. Avlonitis et al.
proposes the determinant factors in the development activities as idea generation and screening,
business analysis and marketing strategy, technical development, testing, and launching.

Along with the simple standard of success and failure in innovation further measured by
quantitative dimensions of innovation performance, the emphases of study turns to innovation
performance and the corresponding risk factors. According to the framework provided by
Cooper et al., new product performance in financial services sector can be viewed on three
different and independent performance dimensions – financial performance, relationship
enhancement, and market development. The numerous characteristics or variables that capture
the nature of new financial service are reduced to eleven underlying factors – marketing synergy,
a market-driven new product process, effective marketing communications, customer service,
managerial and financial synergy, launch preparation, product responsiveness, product
advantage, innovative technology, reputation, proficient operating and delivery systems. Each of
these eleven factors is then tested for its impact on new product performance, against each of the
three performance dimensions. Storey and Easingwood measure new service performance as
three dimensions – sales performance, enhanced opportunities, and profitability. Factor analysis
is used to reduce the large number of attributes of new service to a more manageable number of
underlying dimensions. Seven critical factors are found to be closely associated with outstanding
performance in new services – overall company/product fit, compatibility/importance, staff:
skills and support, distribution strength, effective communication, product/tangible quality,
quality of service delivery.

say, always have money, whether they want to park the money or they have the confidence to
take it out of the bank and put it in other more productive avenues. So last 24 months, barring
one month in March the flows were positive. This trend has started off well in 2016 and there is
no reason why it should not build going forward.

Other Asset Classes are not doing well, do you think this could be the reason for stronger
flows in Mutual Fund?

Definitely, there is no alternative really, Real estate is down and is expected to be down for a
continuous period. So if last decade belongs to most of the wealthy investors and aspiring
investors, if they made money in Real Estate. In the next decade, it is believed that it is the
financial market where the money will be made. Now in financial market the Bank deposits rates
have been slipping down, Postal Saving Schemes rates are coming down. The avenues where
fixed return investors should put money are shrinking and with Gsec it is expected that it will
moderate further. So people are realizing that they need to look at Debt Funds as an alternative

The investors who have the long term goals to achieve like Retirement or other long-term
financial goals which are 5, 10 or 15 years away and that's the beauty of equity kicks in. So I
would say that , two factors which brought strong flows into Mutual Funds are increasingly
positive economic scenario, that's the first reason and second is that there are no avenues really
where other investment avenues are shrinking.

When you say the different type of funds, which fund do you think have strong inflows
going ahead?

We are Retail wealth management company and for us the jewel in the crown is the equity fund
flows and they have been increasing steadily. For the Industry as well as for us, the SIP Book,
people are increasingly realizing the importance of regular, disciplined way of investing and they
don't want to really try and beat the market because nobody has even beaten the market, in the
short term at least. People are realizing that strategy of investing in the market is more important
than to time the market. So that is why the SIP Book, today almost 3000 crores of monthly flows
and 1 crore SIP's in India. So that is really contributing to the asset build up. In addition to that,
we are seeing that investors are coming into accrual based funds as well as medium term
duration funds. And of course, people are parking their short term savings in Liquid Funds in
preference to saving the account, so that they can get 2-3% more and why should they be losing

What kind of AUM Growth do you foresee for the Industry and for your company?

We are the part of the Private Mutual Fund Industry since the beginning, last 5 years trend has
been approximately Mutual Fund Industry to growth expected around 15%. And if you see last 2
years trend , 2014 – 2015, the growth was 24-25% and in 2015 – 16 it is 20%, so we are
benchmarking our growth at the same level. Now we are working on the strategy that how we
can actually beat the Industry growth. We have an online platform which we have just launched
and that should help us accelerate our resource mobilization in Mutual Funds.

Bajaj Capital, a retail-focused wealth management house, has forayed into the investment
advisory business on a fee-only model. For this venture, a separate company — Bajaj Capital
Investment Advisors — has been floated.

“We recently got the certificate of registration as an investment advisor from SEBI. A few pilots
have already started. The registration has been done under SEBI’s investment advisor regulations
issued in 2013,” Rajiv Bajaj, Vice-Chairman and Managing Director, Bajaj Capital, told
BusinessLine here.

Talks are on with various mutual fund houses to give this new venture a set of low-cost funds
wherein distribution costs are not embedded within the expense ratio, Bajaj said. The availability
of lower-cost funds should help the new company justify the advisory fees charged on
customers, he said Under SEBI’s investment advisor regulations, a company offering investment
advice on investment portfolio containing investment products should have a minimum capital of
₹25 lakh.

Pricing concerns

Meanwhile, to better manage the benign pricing conditions in the distribution industry, Bajaj
Capital has redrawn its strategies for the next five years.
The company plans to deepen both its online and physical presence, including allowing
customers to transact online through its electronic platform.

Bajaj Capital had roped in KPMG to help redraw its strategies and chart out a new course for this
50-year-old firm.

The recent ushering in of trail-based commission model will adversely affect the balance sheet of
Bajaj Capital for the next two years although it may be good for the long term, Bajaj said.
