The portfolios are tracked with respect to a client's risk profile, their goal timeline, and market movements, and these changes are communicated to the client accordingly.

ACH mandate is a bank mandate required for monthly payments for investments through SIPs. Approving the mandates allows us to debit your bank account on your behalf towards SIP installments. Thus, you will not need to make payments manually every month towards your investments and help us make the process more streamlined.

It generally takes two working days to redeem funds, and you can do so through the mutual fund house's platform, by logging in through your Folio number and raise a redeem request. Doing this is way easier with Komma; you just ping us up, let us know your requirement for funds, and we'll plan a systematic withdrawal process for you, thus making it very easy.

We plan out your withdrawal while taking in factors like:
1. Market conditions: volatility of the market is also considered while withdrawing.
2. Exit loads: It highly varies on the time duration and the mutual fund could range from 0-2%
3. Tax-implications: Equity investments have 10% on long-term gains (i.e., >1 year) while also allowing you to take out 1 Lakh per year without paying any taxes and 15% on short-term gains (i.e., <1 year), and these apply irrespective of your income level.

Komma by default does half-yearly reviews; other than that, we rebalance your portfolios based on the changes due to market conditions or any goal re-alignment on your side.

Personal Finance

An emergency fund is a lifeline to help one sustain during a crisis or sudden financial need. The size of this fund depends on many factors, including monthly expenses, EMI, sources of income, etc. But generally, a corpus size equivalent to 6 months of expenses should be maintained.

Insurance is supposed to act like your safety net in cases of emergency. Choosing bad insurance can add significant stress to individuals and their finances as well. Issues like inadequate coverage, high deductibles, denied claims, and poor customer services can possibly negate all the advantages of insurance.
