Earlier, investing in mutual funds used to be a complicated process with all the hassles of paper-based account opening. With its fully digital platform, Paytm Money app has made it simple and convenient for everyone to start investing in mutual funds and grow their wealth. Now, you can open an investment account free of cost and earn up to 1% higher returns with direct plans, avoiding any commissions charged by banks or distributors. In addition to this, with just a few taps, you get to view updated mutual fund information, top-rated schemes, hand-picked investment ideas and exclusive mutual fund recommendations for everyone to start investing.
