Here’s what some customers who have tried the products have to say:   

“I always thought Mutual Funds are risky. But when I got to know about Liquid Funds, I found it to be  a good way to invest as there was zero stock market risk. I tried it out and started earning better returns on my money than my savings account. I am very happy saving my money with Liquid Funds.” – D.Kumar Napit, Dhanbad

“I purchased the Coronavirus Insurance policy from PhonePe in May ’20. Unfortunately, I was diagnosed with Coronavirus in mid June ’20, once I recovered and my quarantine period was over, I decided to register a claim. Initially, I thought it would be a tedious process but I was in for a surprise. I registered the claim in the first week of July, the insurer contacted me for my documents, once I sent them the reports and other details, the claim amount was transferred to my account within a week. The entire process was very quick and easy.” – A.Sharma, Visakhapatnam
