InCred Money will be targeted at customers, and also serve as a platform for other businesses which want to serve customers. As far as the platform services are concerned, InCred Money plans to integrate a network of Independent Financial Advisors (IFA) across the country.
“There is a growing demand for non-traditional investment assets from mass affluent and retail investors due to rising income levels and greater awareness. We are addressing this massive demand by putting together a suite of carefully curated products and solutions,” said Vijay Kuppa, co-founder, Orowealth and now the CEO of InCred Money.
Orowealth offered users options to invest in bonds, mutual funds, peer-to-peer loans, invoice discounting, fractional real estate and more.
