Scripbox – History

The idea for Scripbox came to the founders when they noticed that investing in financial products such as equities and mutual funds was not so easy for the common man. This is even more relevant for people who are planning to invest in the stock markets for the first time. Around a decade earlier, availability of online investment options was also limited.

Much of the focus was on high-net-worth individuals. In comparison, smaller retail investors did not have an easy way to invest their savings online. With these factors in mind, the founders decided to launch Scripbox. The objective was to leverage technology tools to simplify investments for retail investors and help them grow their wealth.
