Any resident or non-resident Indian can open a DMA® with Right Horizons Portfolio Management.

SEBI has mandated registered portfolio managers to have a minimum funding amount for such accounts at INR 2.5million (INR 25 lacs). The same can be funded by a variety of ways. By cash, existing holdings of listed securities, unlisted securities and/or mutual funds and any combination of these mentioned instruments.

No, currently we offer clients with discretionary portfolios where the account is under a complete PoA mode to the Portfolio Manager. All instructions to fund/withdraw need to be routed through the portfolio manager. However, if you wish for non-discretionary / advisory services or an execution only account, please get in touch with our service advisor and we shall be happy to help you set one up.

Yes, virtually every financial investment can be done through this account. In addition, we have managed strategies on all asset classes that have been performing better than benchmarks and competition. However, this account has limitations with respect to holding Indian securities and pre-dominantly intangibles.

Rest assured, we have maintained the highest standards of transparency by engaging IL& FS Securities & Services Ltd. (ISSL) as our custodian. ISSL provides this account with custody, safe-keeping, record keeping and clearing & settlement of each and every trade or transaction. We provide you with periodic reports on holdings, account activity and transactions. This account is as safe as any investment account that you are operating currently.

We have the most competitive pricing structure currently available to the Indian investor. If you have been managing your investments with other portfolio managers, or doing investments on your own; rest assures our charges are lower than any player operating in the market. The typical charges that are incurred while having an ordinary individual investment account (like a d-Mat account) usually apply to this account. For instance, brokerage on transactions, d-mart annual maintenance charges, Custody charges, FMC (fund management charges) and applicable loads, if any would be levied in this account. Almost all charges mentioned above are industry practice and we believe that we are ultra competitive in maintaining the same.

No, the account is not transferable in title to any other individual. This client can transfer the underlying securities freely as he would be able to do through his/her regular d-Mat account. The individual should nominate to this account for added safety. In addition, just like other financial accounts, this account can be held in single, joint and/or in registered entities names.

There are two sets of documentation that need to be done by the client. First, to open a Right Horizons DMA® account the client needs to agree to the terms and conditions set forth in the agreement of the of Right Horizons Portfolio Management and also agree to open a d-mat account with ISSL. The client would therefore need to endorse an Account opening form of Right Horizons DMA® and account opening of the D-mat with ISSL. However, for ease of use, we have clubbed the two processes to become a single set of forms at the time of opening. Since there is an involvement of two set of people (Right Horizons back office) and an external agency (ISSL); we would request you all to give us 2 – 3 days notice prior to account opening meeting. This would help us smoothly close the process of account opening
