With the new design and navigation structure, matters of finance have been made more accessible while maintaining focus on personalisation. Various tools and utilities have also been incorporated to ensure that the user needs are met at every level, whether the user is a novice, an amateur, or is savvy in finance-related matters."

The website also includes a handy 'My Watchlist' tool that allows users to follow trends and track funds that they are keen about. Mutual funds have been made more approachable using graphical representations. Features like mutual funds mantras, myth and fact-based quizzes, and sharing successful investment tips bring financial clarity for investors, as well as information seekers.
