“Our focus is to build a strong base of partners that we call Wealth Managers. Over the last three years, we have realized that though there is a growing demand for online financial solutions that are convenient and paperless, there is an underlying trust issue that deters most end customers from building meaningful relationships. Our partners are helping solve this trust deficit by bringing a rules-based advisory experience to customers in their trust network,” says Aditya Agarwal, co-founder of Wealthy.
Prashant Gupta, Co-Founder of Wealthy, adds, “Our latest Fund-Raise will help us fast track the process of onboarding banking professionals who are looking for an independent career.

The maximum benefit of this relationship accrues to the institution leaving both the banker and their clients short-changed. Wealthy’s bank-like financial services platform, software-led advisory, and, a cloud-based operation empowers these partners to build the career they always dreamt off and achieve a substantial increase in their income.”
