A mutual fund is a pool of money managed by a professional Fund Manager. It is a fund that collects money from a group of investors that share a common investment objective and invests it in stocks, bonds, money market instruments, and/or other assets. After subtracting appropriate fees, the income / profits created by this collective investment are dispersed equally among the investors.

A closed-end fund has a predetermined period and a set maturity date, and it is only available for subscription during the first offer period. Closed-end fund units can only be redeemed at maturity. Following the new fund offer, closed-end fund units are listed on a stock market and are traded there just like any other stock, enabling investors who choose to withdraw from the investment before maturity by selling their units on the exchange.

An open-ended mutual fund scheme known as an "open-end fund" is one that accepts subscriptions and redemptions on a continuous basis throughout the year. An open-ended scheme is perpetual and does not have any maturity date.

A New Fund Offer is used to issue open ended mutual funds. After the subscribers get their units, they are allowed to purchase more or sell their existing units to the fund. As the fund is available to purchase or sell any number of units during business hours, these funds are extremely liquid and pose no price risk to the investors. However, when purchasing or selling units, the fund may impose an exit fee.

Exit fee is a charge levied on investors for selling the units of the scheme. The charge is levied on gross value of total redemption before any charges are deducted. Exit fees are usually charged for exiting the investment too early and as such the percent charge reduces with time.

A Portfolio Management Service is a platform created for individuals and institutions to provide customized solutions for their financial investment needs. Three broad types of investment management services can be offered: non-discretionary portfolios, discretionary portfolios and income guaranteed fund (IGF).

Portfolio Management Services are regulated by Securities and Exchange Board of Nepal (SEBON) under Merchant Banking Regulations.

In a discretionary portfolio management service, the portfolio manager manages each client's assets and securities on an individual, independent basis in line with the client's demands.

In non-discretionary portfolio management, the investment manager merely works as a broker to execute trades based on the client's instructions. The manager also acts as an advisor, but the client makes the final decision regarding buying and selling of securities.

A demat account allows investors to store shares and securities electronically. This type of account is also known as a dematerialised account. It also allows individuals to keep track of all their assets in stocks, bonds, and mutual funds in one convenient location.

A depository is an institution that holds your assets for you. In merchant banking, a depository participant is the party which holds the stocks, bonds and units of mutual funds safely in an electronic form. Nepal has only one primary depository which is CDSC. All other merchant bankers, brokers or other institutions licensed with the ability to open DP accounts are directly linked with CDSC and can act as a depository participant.

Understanding the link between CDSC, Depository Participants and You

CDSC is the one and only primary depository in Nepal related to financial securities. It houses all the information on stocks, bonds and units of mutual fund and their beneficiaries. This repository of data is provided to CDSC by its depository participants. When you open a demat account with a DP, it collects information relating to you and your holdings, which is transmitted to CDSC’s central server. A depository participant in essence acts as a mediator between CSDC and investors. When you buy or sell security, the assets need to be transferred from one account to another, and as such the accounts are settled i.e., debit/credited centrally in CDSC’s server.

Requirements for Opening a Demat Account:

  • Fill up a standard Demat Account Opening form online or offline including required signatures and sitemaps.
  • Provide a copy of NRN certificate in the case of Non-Residential Nepalese.
  • Provide a copy of guardianship certificate in the case of minor.
