Loan Against Mutual Funds


Try the API set here

Purpose and Functionality :

This API from MF Central is an initiative by CAMS and KFintech where all RBI regulated entities can integrate with us, and where all users holding their mutual funds in SOA or physical format can be pledged through this API. This delivers a seamless experience to users and lenders as it covers all mutual funds of SOA format and can be pledged directly. Similar revoke and invoke can happen from lender side without any extra integration with other RTAs.

Invoke and Revoke APIs are also part of this section using which the lender can either invoke or revoke the user's assets.

These brokers tied mutual funds are directly stored by RTAs in physical or SOA format, hence can be pledged through MFC LAMF API. Mutual funds which are also bought directly from AMC website are stored with RTAs and can be pledged from here.

Brokers who doesn't support LAMF through MFC APIs

For these brokers MFC LAMF API won't work as they predominantly store mutual funds in Dematerialization format. Mutual funds bought through these brokers can be pledged through CDSL/NSDL.
