Last two weeks: Opt for a nominee to avoid your mutual fund units from being frozen

As the last date to opt for a nominee will expire in nearly two weeks, we give a step-by-step guide to choose a nominee for your mutual fund investment

Investors can choose a nominee or instead opt-out by logging in to CAMS or KFintech Premium

Before Sep 30, all mutual fund investors are supposed to provide a nomination or opt-out of it. The rules say that if mutual fund folio was created before Oct 1, 2022, nomination for folios must be complied with on or before this deadline.

It is vital to note that those who miss this deadline will not be able to redeem their mutual fund units post this date.

For the unversed, nomination is a facility that enables a unitholder to nominate a person who can claim the units (or the proceeds ) in case unitholder is no more.

If units are held jointly by more than one person, all joint unit holders are required to together nominate a person in whom all the rights in the units would vest in the event of death of all the joint unit holders.

How to opt for a nominee?

One can choose a nominee online or alternatively, submit the physical forms for nomination/ opt-out at the designated investor service centres of CAMS/ KFintech/ AMCs before the deadline.

Some mutual funds such as Aditya Birla SunLife, Bandhan, Franklin Templeton, HDFC, L&T and HSBC are serviced by CAMS, whereas others are serviced by KFintech such as Axis, Baroda BNP Paribas, Bank of India, Canara Robeco, Edelweisss and Navi Asset.

To be able to choose a nominee, one has to go to the relevant portal of CAMS or KFintech at these links.
