The centre will be based in Bengaluru and cater to customers from Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.

This closely follows the company’s announcement regarding the opening of multiple DCs across India to ease access to services and promote digital adoption.

“The Women-Only DC is another step in HDFC Securities’ aim to foster diversity within the organization, while also empowering its customers with technology that eases their journey to financial freedom.

“The company’s digital focus is also driven by the fact that India has among the largest populations of young adults in the world, with Gen Z making up 27 pc of them.

“This is why the company intends to hire women aged below 30 years for this revolutionary digital centre. HDFC Securities plans to hire more than 100+ relationship managers for the Women-Only DC in Bengaluru.

“We are already in the process of hiring 600 relationship managers for our pan-India Digital Centres. We are very aware that the largest percentage of our customers consists of young Indians. So, our solutions need to cater to the unique needs and expectations of these digital natives.

“Also, the relationship managers at our DCs are aged less than 30 years, which gives them unique insights into the needs of our largest customer demographic.

“We wanted to make it easier for women investors to access our services also, as only 7% of Indian women invest independently in the financial markets, and 33% of women don’t have any financial investments. We aim to encourage these women to take charge of their finances with a women-only team at the new DC.

“Although our team will serve every type of investor, male or female, having a women-only team could attract more women to discover investment opportunities and support for making informed investment decisions,” said Dhiraj Relli, Managing Director & Chief Executive Officer at HDFC Securities.
