Fyers recently introduced their mutual fund platforms - fyers direct. Fyers direct allows buying of direct mutual funds through its platform. Normally mutual fund platforms provided by brokers (except zerodha coin) allow buying direct funds. 

How to invest in direct mutual fund using Fyers direct

All mutual fund schemes offer two plans - direct and regular. Direct funds are normally sold through mutual fund advisors or agents. Regular mutual funds normally have higher expense ratio since agent commision also included in it.

Direct mutual funds are sold directly by fund houses. Direct mutual funds have less expense ratio since no distributor commition is involved in this. It will result in higher NAV and better returns. In long term, this will help you earn more return than from a regular fund. 

Fyers direct is new direct mutual fund platform. There are many other experienced players like groww (recently started stock broking ), kuvera who provide direct funds through their platform. But holding mutual fund units in broker platforms like fyers direct have another advantage.
