In order to join our successful Distributor community you will need to get yourself empanelled as an authorized Distributor of Sundaram Mutual Fund.
The following are the simple steps for becoming a Distributor of Sundaram Mutual Fund.
Get yourself certified (if not previously certified) by National Institute of Securities Markets (NISM), by taking the NISM Mutual Fund Distributors Certification Examination. National Institute of Securities Markets (NISM) is a public trust, established by the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI), the regulator for securities markets in India. NISM seeks to add to market quality through educational initiatives. It is an autonomous body governed by its Board of Governors. Clearing the NISM test has been made mandatory by the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) and can be taken at different cities. The certification examination consists of 100 questions of 1 mark each and should be completed in 2 hours. The passing score for the examination is 50%. There shall be negative marking of 25% of the marks assigned to a question. Registration is done through NSE, BSE or MCX-SX.
After becoming NISM certified by clearing the test, you will have to fill up an empanelment form which can be downloaded from this website, or simply contact any of the Sundaram Asset Management Ltd. offices in order to obtain an empanelment form by mail. A copy of the empanelment form, duly filled, along with the attached ARN Certificate (AMFI Registration Number) should be sent to any of the branch offices of Sundaram Asset Management Ltd, from where the Distributor proposes to operate.
Sundaram Asset Management Ltd. will review the form following which the prospective Distributor will receive an empanelment letter and code number, along with all necessary material (forms, fact sheets, marketing material etc). This means that he is now a full-fledged Distributor of Sundaram Mutual Fund.
