    Hi Ajay,
    It definitely makes sense to invest into Mutual funds, even more if you are a NRIs. Owing to becoming a NRI, the investment process becomes a bit more tedious to invest via stock brokers – considering that you would need PIS account and pay for costly NRI brokerage services.

    NRIs can conveniently invest into Mutual funds, as long as they have a NRE / NRO bank account and have complied with KYC – which is an easy and smooth process. The feedback which I got from several of my NRI clients who earlier used to invest directly into stock markets was :
    1. They no longer need to track India stock markets;
    2. The timing difference is no longer a pain as you would have to wake up at India time to place orders in case of investing directly into stocks;
    3. It is economically cheap to invest via Mutual funds;
    4. And above all – a dedicated fund manager is looking into the investment process.
