Be a Long-Term Investor with Dhan - Experience a Better Investing Experience!

On Dhan - we are building for two distinct types of personalities, Long Term Investor & Super Traders.

We love this quote by Naval Ravikant.

“All the returns in life, whether in wealth, relationships, or knowledge, come from compound interest.”

In this fast-moving world, it seems that all of us are in a rush to create wealth and retire early. Possibly, this is why the FIRE (financial independence, retire early) movement gained popularity.

Long-term investing isn’t that easy. It’s in fact slow and boring, with much more to do with consistency and discipline. Let’s understand with an example, If Mr. X invests Rs.15,000/- every month that gives Mr. X a return of 15% per year, at the end of 15 years he will be accumulating Rs. 1,00,00,000/-. Amazing, right? Yes!

To build long-term wealth, you also need a long-term investing partner. That is the core belief with which we are building Dhan - every day! We want to ensure that you get the best possible product and investment experience along with awesome customer service.

If you are a long-term investor, there are plenty of reasons you should consider Dhan as your investment platform of choice. Note - we just started a few months back (Nov 2021), so - yes we will be constantly updating this list as we ship more features and improve our existing ones!

Here you go :slight_smile:

Please add total number of stocks in Holding section and also holding stock list as per alphabatically arranged as per my wish. Now it is set as a profit and loss . I think in any application users’ choice must be given priority. In Protfolio Section arrangement of stocks should be given to the users hand. Unfortunately this not given to the Dhan users. This is very hurt me.
Whenever I see my Protfolio, it is irretated me specially when market is open. At that time stocks are continuously moving as per market value.As an investor, I am totally frustrated.

Hi @CCCB70625

We are adding the Total Number of Stocks in the next release of Dhan. Rest feedback noted, we will work on this… and keep the user preference saved.


I am waiting for new update :smile_cat:

Hi @Jainil2003

We will try to move to default sorting by Name in Portfolio. We discussed this, and agree - its best to show names alphabetically and so that there are no surprises to see new names all the time on the top.


Stocks in portfolio now are sorted alphabetically both on app & web, additionally we also show the # of stocks you have in your holdings.
