Speaking on this milestone, Sriram Iyer – Chief Executive Officer, HDFC Pension said, “This is a very proud moment for us. We are delighted to have crossed this milestone of Rs. 50,000 cr. AUM and this validates our strong presence. This achievement becomes even more significant as we complete ten (10) years of business this year. This milestone is a reflection of the trust placed in our organization by our esteemed subscribers. We would like to thank our subscribers, Corporate partners, Points of Presence (POPs) and distributors for the confidence and trust they have shown in us and their support that has enabled the Company to grow over the years.
Every working individual needs an avenue to secure their future after retirement. NPS as a financial product plays a critical role in the process of retirement planning. The superior returns, attractive tax benefits, and low charges make for a strong customer proposition. With our AUM crossing the threshold of Rs. 50,000 cr., the effective Fund Management Charges for our subscribers will reduce further, making the product more cost effective. I hope more and more Indians opt for this instrument, thereby securing their golden years.”
