    Prabhu ,

    You are welcome and any further assistance required do let me know.



  3. I would suggest your to become direct broker for mutual funds & sub-broker for stock-market. For mutual funds, you need to clear the exam & then apply to AMFI. The cost involved is Rs.1000/- for exam & Rs.5000/- with AMFI. They have revised these charges couple of months back.

    Just contact any AMC, and they will help you in this matter.

    Hope it will help you.

    Hi Prabhu ,

    Your question is about distribution of mutual funds or a sub brokership with the Stock Broking Firm.

    Well if you are interested in the distribution of mutual funds then in that case you need to clear an online exam conducted by NISM which is conducted on a daily basis and on completion you would have to apply with AMFI (Association of Mutual Funds in India) for an ARN Number and after which you would have to apply with various Asset Management Companies for becoming a distributor with them and then you would be able to advise investors and sell various mutual fund scheme to them. This is the process in regards to sell a mutual fund.

    If you want to be a sub-broker for mutual funds then you can contact various stock broking firms and they would give u details about becoming a sub – broker with them for mutual funds.

    In case of becoming a Sub broker for Stock Market Transactions then there are various schemes offered by various Stock Broking Companies so it would be advisable that you could contact them on a personal level to understand the various costs that would be associated on setting up a sub-broker business.
