Motilal Oswal Asset Management Company (AMC) become the first Indian fund house to launch WhatsApp transaction platform for mutual fund transactions for new as well as existing investors.
This is a standalone feature wherein the customers can use their WhatsApp window to complete the mutual fund purchase. The investor through his/her registered number can initiate a transaction in Motilal Oswal MF funds just by typing a salutation. Further interaction makes it very easy for the customer to buy a fund of his/her choice from MOAMC’s bouquet of funds.
