Investing in Jama

  • I do not have KYC. Can I invest in Stocks & MFs?
    For stocks, an online demat account can be opened in 5 to 10 minutes. The process is very smooth and is done by lakhs of new investors every week. From the Jama Wealth app, you can choose Demat account from the Account section. For mutual funds, an eKYC can be obtained using your Aadhar number.
