What is Folio Number in Mutual Funds?

Updated on May 16, 2024 , 25110 views

A folio number is a unique number allotted by the Mutual Fund Company to the investor. It is just like a Bank account number with a particular bank. The unique number differs from the fund house to fund house. Once an investor purchases a fund, folio number is automatically assigned to by the fund house. An investor can make multiple purchases by using the same folio number within the same mutual fund.

With the folio number, one can easily obtain a mutual fund statement or update personal information from the fund house or broker itself. So, it is important for an investor to keep the folio number safe.

The folio number is essential for both investor and for a mutual fund company. It helps the fund house to maintain/update records and information about the mutual fund investor from time to time.
