Keval Bhanushali, Co-founder & Chief Executive Officer, 1 Finance, enunciated, “We wanted to provide qualified, unbiased, and hyper-personalised advisory to our consumers by design. We saw two major fundamental gaps: the lack of qualified advisors. There are a few thousand Certified Financial Planners, Chartered Wealth Managers, and Registered Investment Advisors in India. The second and biggest gap is the conflict of interest between employees of big organisations and customers where the incentive structure is misaligned, based on revenue through commission. Thus, by default, it promotes the highest commission paying product over the right product. To eradicate these two problems, we decided to approach leaders of the advisory ecosystem and are glad to have them join us on the mission of creating of a larger pool of qualified and unbiased advisors. We couldn’t have asked for a better committee who is so passionate about the future of advisory business in India.”

The committee has a diversified group of individuals from all fields of financial advisory, which will solve the problems faced by QFAs, pan India. The value additions from each member will contribute to enhancing the services provided by 1 Finance. The strong backing of the organisation has solidified our faith in the transparent system that has been created right from day one of its inceptions. It is an honour to be a cog in an institution reimagining the entire financial advisory space whose issues have been unaddressed for too long now.”
