  • I have invested in mutual funds for 5 years plan 1000/- per month and I really liked the expected results.



  • @stephbaker @Smart2Investor I have read that Scripbox has merged with Upwardly Is it true? If it is so, Scripbox is likely to become a robust investment platform.

    Scripbox+Upwardly sounds to be a great combination!

    What do you think? Will it be giving tough competition to other similar mutual fund investing portals?



  • @Smart2Investor This is quite an informative post on Scripbox. To add here, financial advisory startup Upwardly has merged with Scripbox the online investment platform. So, this combined team shall now work together to provide investment related services to customers.
    Don't you think this is a wise step to increase customer base? I feel this can surely help widen their business and client base.
