The reason is that investments in stocks, mutual funds and insurance are spread across various entities.

“I’m sure many Indians must be facing the same problem, just like my dad. As a first step towards attempting to solve it, we are helping our customers have a consolidated family portfolio view across Zerodha accounts,” the billionaire stock broker said on Twitter.

Batting for the account aggregator network, which can

He plans to then work on offering a consolidated portfolio view across all assets, including insurance and even provide an easy way to liquidate whenever needed.

While investors track asset allocation and concentration to stocks and sectors at an individual level, it is also important to track the portfolio risks at a family level.
