On the occasion launching the MF platform, Ajit Narasimhan, Head- Savings & Investment categories, BankBazaar.com said, “MFs allow for goal-oriented wealth creation. As an inflation-proof investment that can be invested in both debt and equity asset classes, MFs provide varying degrees of returns for customers across all levels of risk appetite.
With interest rates trending down and demonetization, investment avenues such as Fixed Deposits are also delivering lower returns. So this instant paperless presence-less MF product by BankBazaar with a simplified application process and portfolios for everyone from the highly risk averse to the more adventurous investor is the right product to fill the gap at the right time.”...
