To help strengthen usage further, we plan to introduce more funds in this App so as to offer users the opportunity to select a fund of their choice."

BSLMF Active Account provides users to invest their surplus savings into Birla Sun Life Cash Plus to help earn reasonable returns with convenience of liquidity over short term. The mobile application offers users two key transactions, each executed with a simple swipe option on the mobile phone through the App. The launch of BSLMF Active Account was supported by a high visibility marketing campaign. The TVC challenged the investment habits of Indians who keep majority of their hard-earned money in low-yielding vehicles, urging them to make the right investment choices. BSLMF Active Account helps consumers use the power of technology to activate their idle money with a single swipe.

Part of this effort includes introducing smart solutions, user-friendly services and facilities as well as mobile applications which simplify mutual fund processes with digitization for both – investors as well as distribution partners. In its endeavour to introduce technological innovations across various processes to ensure increased convenience, engagements and efficiency, BSLMF launched FinGo and FinGo Partner mobile applications for customers and distributor partners respectively.
