1.MF officials expect SEBI to hike expense ratio and allow fungibility soon.

Mutual fund CEOs are hoping that SEBI would soon hike total expense ratio (TER) and allow fungibility in usage of this expense corpus which will allow fund houses to manage their expenses efficiently. The quantum of increase in TER has not been decided yet though. Fund houses are currently allowed to charge a maximum of 2.50% as TER on equity funds. The mutual fund advisory committee, comprising 14 members representing investor association, banks, fund houses and media is likely to give its recommendation to SEBI next week based on which a final decision will be taken.
