It is a money-making opportunity for you if you use PhonePe! Digital payments platform PhonePe on Wednesday launched a unique savings product on its platform that will help people earn higher short-term FD-type returns on idle money lying in their savings accounts.
How does it work?
-Called 'Liquid Fund' on the lines of Mutual Funds, PhonePe will invest money in safer instruments such as bank and government securities, said the company which has over 175 million users in India.
No lock-in period!
There is no lock-in period and the customer does not have to maintain a minimum balance.
"This is our second product in the Mutual Funds space after Tax Saving Funds where we have created a completely digital investment flow for our users," said Terence Lucien, Head of Mutual Funds, PhonePe, as per a report by IANS.
"We will continue to add more such financial solutions for our users to manage their money and fulfill their life aspirations in a better way," Lucien added.

Users can begin saving with as low as Rs 500 in a completely secure and paperless process in less than 5 minutes.
