EduFund’s pricing is transparent and clear without any hidden fees. We charge an annual advisory fee that is 0.4% of the money you invest with EduFund. This amount is billed quarterly once you start investing on our app and agree to this pricing. To avoid any confusion, we have made sure that we don’t deduct it from your investment amount and charge it separately.
If the transaction failed, then the money will get reversed to your bank account. This is done automatically and should happen in 24-48 hours. In the rare case that the amount does not reflect in your account, you can get in touch with your bank to get the issue resolved.
Redemption option is available on the app for mutual fund SIPs and ETFs. Every mutual fund and ETF will have a different timeline for processing redemption requests.

An exchange traded fund (ETF) is a collection of assets —such as stocks—that often tracks an underlying index, similar to an index mutual fund. However, ETFs can be traded on stock exchanges like stocks unlike MFs that only trade once in a day. ETFs may use various strategies and offer different options to investors, but the most popular ones are the ones that are built based on the composition of an index. E.g. – NIFTY50 and NASDAQ-100 Index-Tracking Stock.
