Speaking on the development, Pravin Jadhav, Founder and chief executive of Raise, said,
“More than 90% of the everyday trading activity is performed by traditional stock brokers, and there isn’t any technology solution focused on improving their experience. Through the Moneylicious acquisition, we will be launching a new app to focus on this target segment and help them get a better real-time sense of their trading activity performed on an everyday basis.”
Raise’s first product targeted towards stockbrokers will be launched in the next 8-12 weeks, Jadhav added. The startup also has plans to introduce multiple products across insurance, investments, financing, payments, and wealth management in coming fiscals.
