How is Glide Invest different from other platforms like banks, brokers, financial planners etc.?

At Glide Invest, our only aim is to facilitate our customers to invest in order to fulfil their goals. We offer goal based investing where you will select a predefined goal e.g. retirement, child’s marriage, etc and our algorithm will provide you with funds to invest in to meet that goal.  Additionally, our focus on passive investing reiterates the fact that our focus is on providing sound advice while giving our investors the lowest cost instruments to invest in.

We are also a direct mutual fund distribution platform. We draw no commissions from any Mutual Fund for selling their funds. 

Finally without any commission, all the expenses saved will add up and compound in your returns thus ensuring you get better returns than those funds purchased through a distributor intermediary like banks, brokers etc.
