Fund house views on Coin

March 26, 2019


Mutual funds are a wonderful way to start investing. Direct mutual funds more so, because you pay 0 commissions, which otherwise you would have from your pocket. 🙂 But if you are new to mutual funds, navigating the maze of over 2000 funds can become overwhelming. We’ve always tried to educate investors about mutual funds, be it through our webinars or on TradingQnA and Varsity. We’re always on the lookout for ideas to make the fund discovery and selection process easier. In our endeavor to simplify the fund selection process, we’ve added a new feature to Coin.

Introducing fund house views

Understanding the fund philosophy and the security selection process is a really important part of choosing a fund. Now, you will see bite-sized videos featuring fund managers and chief investment officers explaining how the funds work and their investing philosophy when exploring funds. A shoutout to the LearnApp team for producing these slick videos.

These videos are currently available only on the Coin mobile app for these ICICI schemes:

  1. ICICI Prudential Bluechip Fund
  2. ICICI Prudential Value Discovery Fund
  3. ICICI Prudential Balanced Advantage Fund
  4. ICICI Prudential Long Term Equity Fund
  5. ICICI Prudential MidCap Fund
  6. ICICI Prudential India Opportunities Fund
  7. ICICI Prudential Multi-Asset Fund
  8. ICICI Prudential Multicap Fund

but we hope to cover all the popular funds across AMCs in due course. Keep in mind that these videos are just to give you a brief overview of the fund and so act as an aid when you are picking a fund to invest in. Do let us know what you think of the videos and how we can make them better in the comments section below. 🙂

    When will stp be available?

    • Shruthi says:

      Hi Srinivas, this is expected to be live soon, however, cannot comment on a timeline. Will keep you posted.

  2. Gautham says:

    I fail to understand why STP, an absolute must have feature w.r.t Mutual funds is missing in India’s largest trading and investment platform ? Its been years since people are requesting this and the only answer has been ‘it will be available soon’. Please Team Coin make it available ASAP.

  3. Rohan Malik says:

    First of all Kudos to Mr. Kamath & team for innovative thinking and flawless execution of all Zerodha Platforms. I know we fail to appreciate such pioneer efforts, but the truth is you guys have revolutionised retail investing and made investing far more easier for retail investers like us. Millions and Billions are thankful to you guys for the same. However even the best things is the world need advancements in times like these. A few requests here as an avid user :
    1. XIRR availibility on Coin for entire Portfolio. Its a shame that i can and have to do in excel, while you already have such a robust platform to display same. 90% of folks do SIP investing only and for entire porfolio, CAGR number is almost useless – please enabled Portfolio level XIRR.
    2. STP is a bare minimum feature needed for mutual fund investors. With more than 40 AMCs and hundreds of Funds available, the requirement and alignment of customer as per customized needs are switching very fast so change in portfolio should be easy and hence need of STP.

    • Shruthi says:

      Hi Rohan, thanks for the feedback. Both of these features are being worked on and will be available soon. We’ll keep you posted.

  4. Suguna says:

    I’m looking for STP and SWITCH features in zerodha coin for mutual fundslike some other brokers offer to their clients

    Please reply in this record and do the needful as soon as possible

  5. Sanchaya Sriramka says:

    Whats the update here?
    Its been years and years and no update?
    Is it possible to know is zerodha planning to give this option or not.
    If not just let us know.

  6. Ketan Sahasrabudhe says:

    Hi, Any update on STP/SWP?
    I have read previous comments, it’s been almost a year since the new SEBI circular and Zerodha promised about working on solution. What’s the status on that?

  7. Karan says:

    I think everyone’s been waiting quite patiently for STP now, easy to move to another broker (Upstox/Groww) which are offering this feature.

  8. सविल says:

    इस ऐप से म्युचुअल फैंड में निवेश कैसे करते हैं

  9. Kamlesh says:

    I need STP & SWP feature in coin. Those are very important feature to manage mutual funds and manage retirement monthly income.

  10. Suvo Pal says:

    The lack of STP and SWP options is a big issue for investors. It was mentioned that functionality will be available 2 years back after which there have been no updates on the same.
    I just started my SIP and wanted to continue but it seems I need to redeem it and then move my investment to the Groww app which provides me with both the above options.
    It would be great if Zerodha can provide some kind of tentative timeline on when these features will be available?

    • Shruthi R says:

      Hey Suvo, we know it’s taken a while. We had built an SWP where you could do it across any scheme across any AMC but suddenly this SEBI circular came out which changes the way Coin works and whatever we had built no longer works. We are currently working on transitioning Coin and once we’re done we’ll introduce STP/SWP. Please bear with us.

  11. Manoj says:

    The lack of STP and SWP options is a big drawback of Zerodha. I think clients will be willing to pay for these services too. Why not explore the option ?

  12. Rachit says:

    Is STP (from liquid funds to equity MF) available on coin ? If yes, how to do that ?

  13. Vedant Arun Benwar says:

    Please provide STP option on Coin. Or else i will have to look for some other Mutual Fund platform

  14. Rony says:

    Hi, I started Step-up SIP through Zerodha with Initial Investment. The initial purchase was processed but the SIP has not been triggered on the given date. Why did this happen and how to resolve this?
    It is also not showing up in the Fund house website

  15. Rajesh Jain says:

    Hi, I am an NRI and want to invest into Direct-Growth Mutual Funds through Zerodha Coin. Can we signup online?

    I also have folio created in other AMcs and banks with acive funds. Can I view and redeem / switch these exisiting funds on Zerodha Platform?

    Do you have any rep office in UAE? or team to handle NRI customer? I am interested in openning DEMAT account as well with Zerodha,

  16. Milan says:

    Why is there so limited information on coin as compared to Groww and Paytm Money?

  17. Piyush says:

    Have you any plan to add STP in COIN ?
    Please tell us Otherwise We need to choose another platform like
    I invested lots of money in MF by COIN but Now I need to invest by STP

  18. Manish says:

    Can we set up STP from money parked in arbitrage fund to small cap fund of same fund house, using Coins

  19. Tony says:

    I have purchased Mirae asset Emerging Bluechip fund through Coin. Now i get a message from the fund house saying, nominee details are missing. Do we need to do it seperately with the fund house?

  20. Sajeev L says:

    i already opened a demat account through zerotha,
    now i want to invest SIP, how to i join?

  21. Ravi Teja says:

    In my coin app i have deleted SIP’S from Home which are coming for montly payment unintentionally . but all SIP’S are visible in INVESTEMENTS –PORTFOLIO ,but not in investments–SIPS . and this month i got only 3 sip due .plz help how to get back those SIP’S back for payment

  22. Noble Antony Thattil says:

    Please update when will the STP option be available in Coin/Zerodha.

  23. Rajesh says:

    STP and SWP framework is much awaited on Zerodha. I have been viewing the communication from Zerodha for a year now, that it would be introduced soon. Any idea when it will be available?


    Very long time waiting for STP framework which more beneficial for customers. Is there any light on this matter.

  25. Tina says:

    Hello Team @ Zerodha,

    Thanks for providing a a user-friendly interface for buying the mutual funds.

    STP and SWP framework is much awaited on Zerodha. I have been viewing the communication from zerodha for a year now, that it would be introduced soon. Any idea when it will be available?


  26. Harsha says:

    what are the chargers for SIP orders executed each month.

  27. Tripti Chandrakar says:

    Sir I have completed all the formalities to open account but still not got the client ID please suggest

  28. Ajmat says:

    Sir I have 3funds since march 2 but the respective amount is not deducted from my demat account and it shows no investment and today is 3rd day…
    Please help me out… The nav is going up

  29. Rachel says:

    If I invest in mutual funds via coin (demat), will I be able to redeem them directly from the fund house if I want to? Or am I forced to rely on Zerodha’s platform for this?

  30. Kranti says:

    I have purchased ICICI Prudential Overnight Fund on 20 november but today i.e. on 23 november still it shows processing.

  31. Bharat Bhushan Khattar says:

    Hoe does one redeem the MF units purchased thru Coin?

  32. Vasudev says:

    I invested Rs.5000/- from my Zerodha account to ICICI ultra short term fund but I am not able to view the status of transaction. I am not able to operate the COIN now after downloading and opening it.

  33. Mohan says:

    How long will it take for switching funds?. That is redemption of one fund to wallet and investing it on another fund?

    • Matti says:

      Redemption orders placed before the cut-off are processed the same day and you’ll have funds in your account to invest on the next day.

  34. Vasudev says:

    Sir, I want to invest say Rs.50000/-in an ultra short fund to buy units in a nifty index fund ,when market is low. Similarly ,I would sell when I make profit and revert the money back to the debt fund. Can I do it in Zerodha COIN without money getting credited or debited to and fro my bank . Is so,how can do so with ease.

  35. deepak says:

    can i redeem my all units at any time?

  36. Zerodha Long Term Investor says:

    I think the whole MF industry should make it standard practice to release information about the fund SID in a video. Also whatever regulatory or internal changes of the fund must be updated in a new video, or provide a link to the source in one place… More standardisation required from industry to make MIS easier for clients.

  37. sk says:

    in Tata digital direct growth plane i invested via other mutual fund app with minimum sip amount of 500/- and in this app there is a minimum value of 1000/- to invest with initial investment of 5000/- why ??

  38. Pramod Vasudev Bhat says:

    I am not seeing Zerodha’s recommendation on mutual funds on the Coin website. However, I can able to see in Coin App why it is like that?

    I can see recommendations on an app like these
    Best of Equity
    Best of Debt
    Best of Tax Saving


  39. Sejo says:

    i had been investing in the Mutual Funds ( Directly and through brokers ) for the last 10 years. Is it possible for me to bring all of them under the ” Coin” system, without redeeming and reinvesting?

    • Matti says:

      Yes. You can dematerialise your mutual fund holdings and track and redeem them on Coin when required. You can continue investing in the direct funds on Coin, however, the regular funds can only be redeemed since we’re a purely direct platform. The dematerialisation process is explained here.

  40. kumar says:

    I have two accounts with Zerodha. One is in my name and other is in my wife’s name.
    Now I wish to transfer my all shares from my account to my wife’s account . In both the accounts the nominee names are written of each other. Please let me know as to what is the process for such transfer . Early reply is expected.
    Thank you sir.

  41. kumar says:

    sir ,
    I also wish to know if there are any hidden charges in mutual funds of Zerodha platform for any other purpose like statements , P&L account statement ?

  42. kumar says:

    sir, I have already shifted to zerodha for mutual funds but it does not appear to be easy to transfer my all mutual funds from Prudent to Zerodha as I learnt that it is very difficult to do so.
    Please guide me as i also wish to transfer my all ELSS funds to this account. waiting for your reply.

  43. santana says:

    Just want to invest more in mutual funds. But querries as mentioned below.
    1) How will you prove that Zerodha take only Rs50 per month as commision but other brokers take 1% yearly.
    Can this be explain by ACTUAL showing some customers purchases on Zerodha with others.
    2) How to get history of NAV of direct and regular mutual funds since inception ?

    Kindly explain

    Yours truly,

  44. K Narayanan says:

    When STP (from liquid funds to equity MF) will be available at coin.

  45. Abhay Veerkar says:

    I already have portfolios with many AMCs ( eg AXIS, BSL ). COIN should have a facility to input my existing portfolio number so that new purchases made through COIN would be linked to the same folio. Currently COIN purchase creates addition portfolios at AMC which could be avoided. Multiple portfolios at AMC creates a clutter which is avoidable

    • Matti says:

      Coin investments are in demat mode. For demat mutual fund holdings, the folio number is meaningless. All you need is the demat account number to track your investments.

  46. Sivasankaran Lakshminarayanan says:


    I have already invested in Direct MF from ICICI and HDFC. How can add these funds to COIN?


  47. Rohit Chhabra says:

    Is there any way SIP will be automatically deducted from bank on monthly basis as currently i have to add every month and sometimes forget the SIP date which results delay in transactions

  48. Bharath Kumar H K says:

    hi Guys, I have started investing in Mirae Tax saver fund via SIP, however I need a proof showing mutual fund investment is valid under 80c with 3 year lock in period for my Tax saving benefits. Please help how to get the same.

  49. Mahendra wagh says:

    Is TER applicable in mutual fund via purchase through coin?

    • Matti says:

      Yes, TER is applied by the AMC. It’s the cost of maintaining the fund. However, since Coin only has direct plans, there is no distributor comission component to the TER and so is lower than that of regular plans.


    Sir, I have invested in the mutual fund. I got mail from the mutual fund provider that my investment is confirmed, but it is not been updated in Zerodha Coin. Please update so that I can be sure.

    • Hi Chiranjeeb.
      The order was processed on 4th June 2019 and today is the T+1 day as 5th June 2019 was a holiday on account of Eid hence the units will be allotted to you today (6th May 2019), by 3 PM and the same will be reflected in your Coin Portfolio.

  51. Anushka Dubey says:


    If I am investing lumpsum amount in any MF, then can I withdraw it anytime in future? And what is the procedure for that?

    • Matti says:

      As long as the fund has no lock-in, you can. All ELSS funds have a lock-in of 3 years. There are some retirement funds that have higher lockins.

  52. Vijay says:

    When will zerodha start allow us to pledge mutual funds?

  53. Senthil says:

    How to do switching in coin?
    is it there..!!

  54. santhosh says:

    Really… Great work.helping us to know how our money getting invested by mutual funds , i hope all AMC will support this . Kudos Zerodha.

  55. Ketan says:

    The zerodha UI needs to be more wholesome.. In a way provide details of earlier sold shares/MFs so that we know overall how has an individual done wrt Short term/long term gains/losses (no of shares and price) looking into kite itself (currently the feature is available in q to an extent, but dont want to browse multiple places, download a few reports to make meaning out of them?)
    For MF, we can get grouping if my bought MFs wrt their category (Mid Caps, Small, Debt, ETFs etc etc)

    • Matti says:

      Ketan, historical performance does not belong on the trading platform. It will continue to remain on the backoffice.

  56. Surjith S M says:

    I asked an easier way to list the funds, like groww or smallcase. But now onlu launched on mobile.

    When I can expect on Desktop?

  57. Deep says:

    If I invest in direct mutual funds, through coin, will I be able to see
    1) CAGR & annual/actual returns of my portfolio
    2) Will I get tabulated L.T And S.T capital gains which I can forward directly to my Tax consultant
    3) Can I transfer /invest funds redeemed from folio of one fund house to any other mutual fund of my choice.

    • Bhuvanesh says:

      Hey Deep,
      1. Yes, we show both XIRR and absolute returns.
      2. Yep. You can download your tax-P&L statement from
      3. In demat mode, folio number doesn’t have any importance. But yes, you can remat and transfer your holdings anytime.

  59. Debarati Mukherjee says:

    Hi ,
    I am investing in MF through SIP of amount 2000 monthly for 5 years and my portfolio is ICICI prudential blue chip fund-direct plan, Mirae Asset Large Cap fund,DSP Equity opportunities fund and DSP tax saver fund. Since I am not much updated with the current market tends, could you please advise if I need to modify my portfolio or keep as it is.

    From your experience please let me know whether I would get good return as compared in Bank FDS by investing in these MFs

  60. Priya says:

    I am new and Just started Investment in Bluechip MF as a initial deposit 5000. My question is, Shall I deposit any amount in My SIP Account at any time without any restriction or Do I need to invest monthly once only. Kindly advice.

    • Matti says:

      Hey Priya, you have both options. You can create a SIP and the amount will be invested on the due date as well as invest some lumpsum amount whenever you want to.

  61. awdhesh sony says:

  64. Subhashish parida says:

    I have invested 500 and 1500 as 1st instalment…but it is showing investment as rs 500 only!!!

    • Matti says:

      Hey Subhashish, the SIP amount for your order is 1500. This will be invested on the 1st of every month, the next and first instalment order being placed on 1st of May. The initial investment was Rs. 500 which is what you’re seeing as the investment amount.

    Hi, Every month manually I am adding SIP amount to Zerodha account. Is there any way it will automatically deduct SIP amount from my bank account (like standing instruction) ?

  72. sunil kumar says:

    How can i invest in ipo

  73. Palash says:

    Several funds are not available from Coin. Wonder why !
    For example: HDFC Index Fund-Sensex Plan – we need to go directly to AMC

  74. Gopishankar says:

    Is it possible to automate money transfers to my zerodha account from my bank account every week ?

    • Matti says:

      Yes, you can set up a standing instruction from your bank’s net-banking portal to our accounts. The account details are available here.

      • Gopishankar says:

        I could see it can be scheduled from bank to your bank account via IMPS/NEFT/RTGS. Is there a way to schedule it via UPI the prevent the transaction charges as I wish to move money every week?

  75. Shrikant says:

    It will be helpful if it is available from the website also.

  76. Sahiriar says:

    It is a good feature which will add a qualitative feature to zerodha and set it apart from other discount brokers. I communication of believe investment philosophy is more important than the medium. Currently, we need to go to amc website, download their fund details PDF to see it. It would be great if you could add the text version of investment philosophy of each fund from the official sources directly in the fund page of coin app. That will be much better, more efficient and helpful.

    • Matti says:

      Hmmm… Will pass this on to the team and we’ll think about it.

      • Gopishankar says:

        Also, Displaying sector wise weightage of the funds would help us plan better. How about showing sector allocation across all my investments in all my funds? Too much of an ask? I dont see anybody doing this..

  77. Amogh says:

    When would Zerodha get into Asset management and run funds of its own?

  78. Kandasamy Mohan says:

    Excellent. I have started using coin to invest ELSS and other noteworthy MFs.

    Thanks for the awareness created by Zerodha through COIN.
