After entering India in November 2019 Stockal, which is now India’s largest global investment platform will power Monarch Networth Capital Ltd. (MNCL), one of the country’s most reliable financial services providers to facilitate end-to-end seamless digital transactions for cross-border investments for the Indian investor. This will help MNCL tap more than 5 crore investors looking to diversify their portfolio in global markets. The coronavirus pandemic has encouraged many Indian investors to diversify their portfolios and invest in high performing stocks across the globe.
Stockal had opened about 15,000 accounts for Indian investors by April 2020 and by the end of FY 21, the Indian investor-base has grown 300% to over 45,000 overseas investing accounts.. Indians did $300 million worth of transactions on Stockal in FY 2020-21. MNCL’s Global Access platform seeks to enable over 1 crore new Indian investors to access Stockal’s range of products like Stacks where the investors can hold a fraction of a share of top performing stocks in the US.
Talking about the partnership, Sitashwa Srivastava, Co-CEO and Co-Founder of Stockal said, “MNCL has been a renowned name in the market and has built significant customer trust over the years. We believe this partnership will help the company offer global investment options to their existing and new customers, thereby ensuring long-term relationships with them. The Global Access platform opens up new vistas of world-wide opportunities for Indian investors. Stockal has seen massive interest among global residents to invest in the US and other mature financial markets. Our partnership with MNCL will provide a great avenue for Indians who are looking to diversify their portfolios and tap into global opportunities.”
Speaking on this partnership, Ms. Ashma Zaveri, Chief Operating Officer, MNCL Global Access, said, “The new Indian retail investor, mostly comprising the millennials and Gen-Z-ers, are increasingly looking at diversifying their portfolio in global assets. A general interest in investing in US stocks, especially fractional investing, has been witnessed ever since the Coronavirus pandemic led to market uncertainties. MNCL Global Access’s entry at this most opportune moment of the Indian stock investors coming off age will trigger a new momentum in global diversification in India. With our partner Stockal, we will offer the most robust, reliable, and state-of-the-art global technology platform to enable Indian investors to tap the emerging opportunities across the world markets.”
Indian cross-border transactions have been growing manifold over the years with close to USD 19 billion remitted in FY 2019-20. While a large chunk of these remittances are for overseas expenses, MNCL, with this partnership, will be able to transform these into long term investments for young as well as mature investors.
