Why adding a nominee for your demat account is important

07 Feb 2024

Between 50,000 and 80,000 crores of assets are unclaimed across demat accounts, mutual funds, insurance, etc. This is because most investors don’t add nominees to their investors. In fact, 72% of Individual investors don’t have a nominee for their demat accounts and mutual fund folios. Even if investors do add nominees, they don’t tell their nominees.
