Satyajeet Kunjeer, Founder and CEO, Deciml says, “Everyone wants to be rich by the age of 40, but no one wants to stop living from 20-40. With increasing ambition and consumption, we wanted to create a super convenient way to get more young adults into the investment habit, without compromising their aspirational lifestyles. We are passionate about solving this problem and lifting India’s investment penetration from its current low of 3.5%.”
