Mutual Funds Big cheating Businss of few Bankers



Be Aware  Please its your hard earned money.

What to do when Mutual Funds distributors ask you to Invest Big ? 

Retail investors have led a life of less confusion for some time. Bad market conditions, along with banning of entry load by the Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) in August 2009, ensured many distributers were neither motivated nor inclined to churn aggressively — asking existing investors to move to another scheme.

But, the new guidelines from Sebi could lead to just that – more churning through mis-selling. The churning in the Rs 7 lakh-crore mutual fund sector is 20 per cent annually, according to the market experts.



- Continue SIPs for long-term gains
- When it's too good to be true
- Sinha seeks to please all
- Sebi gives a little, but takes as well
- Mutual funds lose 8,600 equity folios a day

Now, with the market regulator allowing an extra 30 basis points expense ratio from all investors if a fund house manages to get 30 per cent of its fund collection from beyond the top 15 cities, experts say churning may increase, especially in smaller towns.
“Since the fund house and distributors stand to earn additional money, there could be a case for churning in smaller towns,” says Gaurav Mashruwala, a financial planner. Consequently, it is important to ask questions to distributors.

PITCH ONE
“RBI will cut rates soon, move your money from debt to equity fund”
Answer: What ensures that equities will do any better, in the short term? Also, if there are rate cuts, the value of debt instruments will increase so I will make capital gains.

Also, if you are moving from a debt fund in less than a year, the capital gains will be added to your income and taxed. If you earn say, 12 per cent annually or six per cent in six months and exit, there will be a 30 per cent tax (for someone in the highest income tax bracket) on the capital gains or 1.8 per cent. In addition, there will be an exit load of 1 per cent. So, you gain only 3.2 per cent.

With Sensex annualised returns of 3.33 per cent in the last three years, debt has easily outperformed at eight-nine per cent. Yes, if the market were to correct sharply, one can look at it as an opportunity because net asset values would go down sharply allowing you to buy more units for the same money. And, in the turnaround situation, one would stand to gain substantially.

PITCH TWO
“Shift to this equity fund. It has returned 10 per cent in the last six months”
Answer: Isn’t there a short-term capital gains tax of 15 per cent? I will gain 8.5 per cent. Also, there could be an exit load (on principle plus capital) of a per cent or more which many fund houses have imposed, if you shift from a scheme in less a year.

PITCH THREE
Dividend scheme will earn you regular money. Take it out of a growth scheme.
Answer: Why should I take dividend income? The NAV will also fall bringing down my returns? In addition, there will be no compounding of my dividend income? Sometimes, distributors ask you to move within the same scheme.

Amar Ranu, senior manager (third party products), Motilal Oswal Private Wealth says, “The distributor will ask the investor to switch to the dividend option of a scheme from the growth option, as the former is about to announce a dividend payout. The investor will get lured to the dividend option without realising that they are moving within the same scheme. Even though there is no actual loss, you are still being misled.”

PITCH FOUR
Your ELSS has completed three years. Now there are no benefits.
Answer: There is no loss either. There is no capital gains tax after one year. After the lock in period, if the fund is doing well, one should continue with their investments. “Some distributors could try and coax the investor to redeem their units from the tax saving scheme saying that since there is no tax benefit as such any more, it would be wiser to nvest in say an equity fund that is being suggested”, says Suresh Sadagopan, a certified financial planner.

PITCH FIVE (the oldest one)
If you move your money into this new fund offer, you will get units cheaper.
Answer: Whether I buy at the NAV of Rs 10 or Rs 100, the result is same. “Distributors would try to sell products to investors who did not need it. It could be exotic sounding and could promise higher returns than his existing scheme”, says Ranu.

Risky fund management more common in Catholic-dominated regions of U.S.





Fish on Fridays, mass on Sundays, and risky mutual fund management throughout the week. That’s what a new study from the University of Georgia and Southern Methodist University says about funds based in predominantly Catholic areas of the U.S.


“You would think generating profits would be the only decision factor in mutual fund management. We found that local culture, specifically religion, actually has a significant impact on the decisions that fund managers are making, especially when we’re talking about risk,” said University of Georgia economics professor Tao Shu.

The study uses data from the American Religion Data Archive to determine a Protestant to Catholic ratio at the county level across the U.S. Mr. Shu identifies actively managed mutual funds in these areas through the U.S. Mutual Fund database maintained by the Centre for Research in Security Prices, and selects funds marked by Thomson Reuters as “growth” or “aggressive growth.”

“We found that funds based in low-Protestant or high-Catholic populations take more speculative risks in significantly higher fund return volatilities,” said Mr. Shu.

After cutbacks, Tampa International Airport set to add 13 positions


TAMPA — Here's a sign of Tampa International Airport's improving bottom line: The airport plans to start hiring after years of cutting back its workforce.

The Hillsborough County Aviation Authority board voted on Thursday to approve a $183 million budget that will fund 13 new jobs.

A projected improvement in revenue from parking, concessions and airline fees helped the budget grow by 4 percent, or $6.3 million, from the current fiscal year. The airport plans to pay $49 million in salary and benefits, $3.5 million more than in the 2012 fiscal year budget, which ends Sept. 30.

It's not a lot of new jobs, but it's a positive sign for an airport that has shed 63 jobs since 2009. The airport currently has 573 paid positions.

Airport CEO Joe Lopano said it was time for Tampa International to start growing again.

"I kept the head count steady at 573 because I wanted to see where we were going, where we were competitive, where we had success before I did anything with the staff," Lopano said.

The staffing level has been at 573 positions since 2011 and this year the airport decided not to add any positions. But Lopano said it's time to add three positions in marketing and three in human resources, two positions each in construction, information technology and police dispatch, and one in procurement.

"This year is for us to grow," he said. "We're hiring these people to help us maintain and sustain for the future."

Lopano said the airport "wanted to see if the cuts were too deep and if we needed more help." The answer: an unequivocal yes.

"During the last year we started doing more marketing, we did a lot with analytics," Lopano said, "but we didn't add any head count. We still held at 573, and the way we did that was I robbed certain departments. So this year, where I took, I have to put back.

"We're backfilling areas where people are screaming 'Hey, we need help!' "

The airport cut too deeply into the number of radio dispatchers for the Tampa International Airport Police Department, Lopano said.

He also wants to add positions to human resources to implement a new "accountability" culture at the airport. The construction jobs will be needed to manage future capital improvements that are expected to be a part of the airport's new master plan set to be completed in January.

Some of the new jobs will help bring in revenue, Lopano said, like bolstering the marketing department and adding new information technology jobs that will be needed to maintain the new digital video screens that will allow the airport to sell more advertising.

"We've increased our revenue and held our costs in check," Lopano said. "Now we have an opportunity to see where can we grow further — and we'll have new people to help us."

Reasons Why Cloud Computing Remains Unpopular Past 2012


There is no limit to what cloud computing can offer to individuals, corporations, academic institutions, and non-profit organizations. Cloud computing benefits cut across storage, working, communication, and so many other industries and functions. As yet, few people actually use it; or rather very few individuals are making the transition to it from the ‘inefficient, traditional and expensive’ forms or techniques.


These negative attitudes have been promoted by a number of reasons. Some are mere excuses where logic is called upon. Others are real concerns and thus form the basis of this article. People don’t use cloud computing for different reasons; and the most contentious ones include the following. According to most cloud computing industry experts, these could be the reasons why most people avoid cloud computing.


On top of the list is the cost of cloud cost computing. Premium and efficient cloud computing services remain costly for the regular business person and thus make uptake very slow or non-existent. Setting up, subscriptions, and service maintenance costs are high—so is the cost of doing business. Rather than setting up new systems at an extra expense, most businesses prefer operating on slow and inefficient systems which are (now) cheaper at maintenance level. Businesses don’t want an extra expense to devalue their present working servers, among a horde of other reasons. Of course, there is a valid opportunity cost explanation to justify why cloud computing is the cost efficient option in the long run. However, most businesses, small businesses especially, find this pretty hard to concur. As such, because of the cost debates, the adoption of cloud computing remains slow.


The second reason why cloud computing remains unpopular is because of security concerns. Security in the cloud continues to be a hot debate topic at most cloud computing conferences. There are hackers, thieves, and other malicious individuals who would benefit a lot from stolen data off cloud computing servers. Whereas most cloud computing providers offer some of the best security protocols that are difficult to bypass, people and businesses still have security concerns. These are measured on the basis of traditional businesses which have all their digital data stored within their premises; therefore, charging securing roles to a third, large party, is difficult.


Lastly, privacy is another big problem cloud computing faces, bringing a lot of negative publicity (hence, additional costs) to cloud computing industry. In a recent outburst, Steve Wozniak—Apple’s co-founder—stated that cloud computing would not be in the cosmos in the next five years, that it would become practically impossible to keep digital secrets because one firm will be having them!


These sentiments have been echoed elsewhere. Digital ownership will become a thing of the past. Of course where ownership is concerned, that’s enough for any self-caring person to avoid the technology. Overall, although some of these details are sensitive and scary, cloud computing remains a candidate as the technology to beat in the future.

Blue-sky-thinking for a Greener, Sky full future


Air traffic management, including bird-formation flight patterns, is top of a list of ideas on how aviation can go beyond aircraft design to evolve on the ground and in the sky to meet the expected growth of air travel in a sustainable way.

In July Airbus released its vision of what a passenger jet will look like in 2050 - a graceful, spaceship-like vessel brandishing long, slim wings, semi-embedded engines and a U-shaped tail - but the planemaker says that around 9 million tonnes of fuel and 28 million tonnes of CO2 emissions could be saved every year in Europe and the US by optimising aircraft systems, shaving 13 minutes off journeys and saving passengers over 5 million hours of flight time a year.

"We can do things to make the aircraft more efficient... more eco-efficient, but in order to meet the targets that we've set ourselves in the long-term we have to have a more holistic approach," says Andy Gordon, Airbus's director of strategic marketing and analysis.

Air traffic control technology, however, is some way behind airplane technology, with multiple organisations around the planet managing the Air Traffic Management ATM.L systems. Two programmes, NEXTGEN in the U.S. and SESAR in Europe, are currently in operation to evolve the ATM system. Deployment is scheduled for 2014.

Though the aviation industry as a whole has reduced fuel burn and emissions by 70 percent in the last 30 years, the total number of passenger aircraft is predicted to double from a current crop of around 15,550 to 32,550 by 2031 according to the latest forecast by Airbus, the world's largest manufacturer of such jets.

With a sky chock-full of planes, the aviation industry has set a target for carbon neutral growth by 2020; in 2050, emissions should be halved compared to 2005 levels.

FLIGHTS OF FANCY

The latest instalment of "The Future by Airbus", a mammoth sustainable aviation exercise, is tagged "Smarter Skies" and focuses on forward-thinking concepts which, if implemented, would reduce excess waste in time, fuel and emissions.

One is the sci-fi suggestion of "free flight", where intelligent aircraft rather than air-traffic controllers select the most efficient and eco-friendly routes. High-frequency routes would benefit from bird-like formations of aircraft that seek to alleviate drag reduction.

Tests with Airbus's A400M military aircraft have, according to Andy Gordon, shown that there are significant benefits to bird-formation flight patterns, where craft can fly as much as one kilometre apart.

Another concept is already in a test phase: The TaxiBot is an electric tug that tows an aircraft from gate to runway, allowing engines to be switched off sooner for fuel and emissions savings.

Environmental groups, though happy for the industry to be focusing on sustainability issues, say technical tweaks are by no means enough.

Keith Allott, head of climate change for WWF UK points out that projections on the rapid growth of emissions, and wider climate impacts, already have these kind of improvements factored in.

"Technical improvements to aircraft efficiency are welcome, but they are no way enough to get global emissions levelling out let alone decline."

"We must also be realistic about the rate of penetration of new technologies," Allott adds. "There is a long life span of existing stock in the world's aviation fleet."

PLANES DON'T POLLUTE, PEOPLE DO

The only real way to reduce emissions, thinks Allott, is for people to decide against buying into a model of unrestrained growth, and make a choice whether they need to fly quite so much.

In July, Airbus released the results of a 10,000-strong survey, the second in two years, to quantify public perception of air travel's future. It found that over 60 percent of people worldwide want to fly more by 2050, though almost all - 96 percent - believe aircraft need to be more environmentally efficient.

Another emission-reduction option is biofuel. One of Airbus' concepts is a renewably powered acceleration technique which could allow steeper climb from much shorter runways than are in use today, and the use of sustainable biofuels and alternative energy sources like hydrogen or solar power.

Allott does see some strong theoretical proposals for biofuel to play a role, but warns that there will never be enough to go around in a world where everyone wants to fly all the time.
