FAQs

  • Q1. How do I invest in Axis Bluechip Funds?

    A1. Interested customers need to visit the Fund website and complete the KYC formalities. One can invest through their internet banking account or can even use the Axis Mobile app. This will include submitting the details of their I.D. proof, address proof, and bank account details.

  • Q2. What information does an Axis Bluechip Funds statement reflect?

    A2. Every mutual fund scheme comes with an account statement that gives the details of the investment, just like a bank statement. This M.F. account statement reflects the customer's holding in the scheme. It will reflect the following information:

    • Details of the investment plan or Scheme one has invested in
    • The purchase price, the amount invested, and the units allotted
    • Bank details, mailing and contact details, nominee details, etc.

    Customers will generally get a consolidated account statement from the fund house once a month. However, if one needs an account statement that reflects holdings in the scheme, they can request the same from the fund house. Please take note that there are charges for requesting an account statement.

  • Q3. What do you mean by the NAV of a fund?

    A3. NAV stands for Net Asset Value. It is the per-unit price of the Mutual Fund. The NAV of a Mutual Fund changes every day. It is calculated by taking the current value of the holdings of the Fund at the end of the day, less the fund expenses incurred. This final value is divided by the number of units issued to date.

  • Q4. How can I redeem my investments in Axis Bank Bluechip Funds?

    A4. Axis Bluechip Funds provide the facility for both online and offline redemption of units of their funds. Customers, who wish to redeem offline, need to visit the nearest Axis Bank branch office. They can fill a transaction slip there and submit it at the branch.

    On the other hand, customers who wish to redeem units online can go to the fund house website or login into the Axis Mutual Fund app. Then, they need to visit the investment section, select the desired Fund for redemption, and fill in a requisite transaction slip.

  • Q5. Should I invest in Axis Bluechip Funds as a lump sum or through a SIP?

    A5. Mutual Fund investments can be made either as a lump sum amount or in the form of systematic deposits through a SIP or Systematic Investment Plan. A lump sum investment is a one-time investment in bulk in a mutual fund. A SIP, on the other hand, allows the investor to invest a fixed sum regularly in mutual funds of his choice. SIPs allow one to invest a small amount every month without the stress of paying in bulk. In this manner, one doesn’t pay too much per unit of Mutual Fund, due to averaging the cost of investing.
