Scaling our Flagship Product - Dhan
India now has 7.38Cr Demat Accounts till now, and it’s poised to grow at a tremendous rate in the coming years. But this still encompasses less than 5% of India’s population investing in the markets. There lies a huge opportunity in providing a differentiated product to the users to invest and trade in the markets backed by a strong technology stack. With this belief, we launched Dhan - A stockbroking app, built for long-term investors and super traders. We are proud to say that we have more than 1,00,000+ active investors on the platform and have found the right product-market fit among retail investors and super traders.
We will be investing $15Million in Dhan to scale our Product, Engineering, Operations & Customer Experience teams. Superior products ( Dhan app, web.dhan.co and tv.dhan.co) along with an exceptional customer service experience is fuelling our growth, and by committing this investment we will be able to help more users in bringing the Dhan experience.
The road ahead
A record number of Demat accounts in India have been opened from the participation of Gen Z and Millennials. There lies a huge opportunity to cater to them, and we soon will be coming up with a new product exclusive for the first-time investors from millennials and Gen Z.

We have reached this milestone because of the exceptional team we have built at Raise. We believe in empowering our employees with utmost creativity and guiding them by our principle of being extremely customer-centric.
