The Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI), a market regulator, has given Groww Mutual Fund permission to introduce its first index fund. Groww co-founder Lalit Keshre announced on X (previously Twitter) that the Groww Mutual Fund has received clearance for its first NFO, the Groww Nifty Total Market Index Fund.

This occurs just three days after Zerodha, in keeping with its mandate to establish passive schemes, submitted draft offer documents to the market regulator for the launch of two schemes, the Zerodha Tax Saver (ELSS) Nifty Large Midcap 250 Index Fund and the Zerodha Nifty Large Midcap 250 Index Fund (ZN250).

India’s investing technology platform is called Nextbillion Technology (Groww Group).

Bengaluru-based Groww offers innovative approaches for stockbroking, equity-linked savings, SIPs, IPOs, ETFs, and direct mutual funds. Groww was launched in 2017 by former Flipkart workers Lalit Keshre, Harsh Jain, Neeraj Singh, and Ishan Bansal.

The Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI), a renowned portfolio management organization, has given Old Bridge Capital Management (OBCM) the go-ahead to launch its mutual fund operations as Old Bridge Mutual Fund.

The founder of OBCM, Kenneth Andrade, stated, “We remain dedicated to offering customers long-term investment options on its mutual funds platform as we go forward with our recently acquired license.
