Raise unveiled multi-asset trading platform, Dhan

The news follows Raise’s recent announcement, the launch of multi asset trading platform, Dhan.

Not to be confused with Dhani, Raise’s Dhan aims to conquer Indian investors’ hearts as it plans to expand its offering include HNIs, insurance, payments, mutual funds, lending, and card products.

Raise Financial Services has recently raised $22 million in a Series A funding round, of which $15 million will be used to fuel the development and expansion of its trading platform, Dhan.

Founded by former Paytm Money CEO Pravin Jadhav in January 2021, Raise owns and manages Dhan, a stock trading platform that competes with the likes of Groww, Zerodha, and Upstox.

In August 2021, Raise acquired Mumbai-based stockbroking firm and SEBI-registered company, Moneylicious Securities, which resulted in Raise securing the required licenses to become an integrated online stock broker offering trading on all exchanges (BSE, NSE, MCX).

Raise is using the acquired authorizations to set up Dhan as a multi asset trading platform with an offering that spans across all segments: equity, exchange-traded funds, futures, options, currencies, and commodities.

In December 2021, Dhan partnered with US-based charting platform TradingView to allow users to trade directly through charts in equity, options and futures for indices equity, commodity and FX.

The $15 million investment will boost Dhan’s product, engineering, operations and customer experience teams as well as expand the product range to include financing, insurance, investments, payments, and wealth management.
