Commenting on this development, Vibhor Mittal, Chief Business Officer, Yubi Invest, said, “With the sector gradually shifting away from equities and new age investment opportunities, fixed income instruments (particularly bonds) are poised to become a popular alternative in the next few years. Yubi Invest is at the vanguard of this shift, allowing investors from all walks of life to engage with convenience and security. In addition to streamlining the investing procedure, Yubi Invest assures confidence and safety as it carefully selects a list of issuances following extensive due diligence. Ultimately, we plan to democratise access to fixed income instruments through educating the ecosystem about bonds and other fixed income securities.”
Yubi Invest hopes to make fixed income instruments available to every home in the nation. This will be accomplished by making a wide range of investment alternatives across industries and ratings easy to access. This goal is very much within reach because of a solid distribution network, rising customer awareness, and an inclination towards fixed income instruments.
