Name: Rajat Shail Kumar
(Based in New Delhi, Founding Partner at PCube/Mowize )
I am a chartered accountant by qualification and worked in various multinational and large domestic companies for 16 years In India before starting my own venture in 2016, namely Ernst & Young, KPMG, multibillion groups like Vatika and GEMS Education. I have held the CXO/CEO position over last 5 years of my professional career. I am a firm believer that innovation and entrepreneurship are important growth drivers. With over 16 years of experience in fuelling business growth across large organizations as a result-oriented and decisive leader, I’m passionate about conceptualizing and nurturing promising business ideas into successful ventures.
With this thought, I had founded PCube that is based on three pillars of ‘Protection, Prosperity, and Peace of Mind’ for its customers/stakeholders. I partnered with like-minded professional colleagues and conceptualized & incubated the Idea of providing ‘Digital Personal Finance Management’ services to lower to mid-income earning individuals to ensure they realize the best returns from their savings to fulfill their future dreams/financial commitment. We designed a tool called ‘Mowize’ A virtual Financial Assistant for each individual. The system has the vision to make sure that an Individual manages a full financial universe for him and his family over this platform. This includes planning their financials, Getting unbiased advice on investment & tax matters from experts, invest/renew through the platform, manage their portfolio with very structured E-Locker facility and Collaborate with family in a secure environment on the need to know basis. All this on a click of a button on a single platform
We had also incubated an Investment Banking arm of PCube, focused on K12 Education, Real Estate and Corporate Finance transactions. With our experience and a strong background as CEO/CFO of large Real Estate and Education business houses, we bring in a huge amount of value for our clients at the preliminary stage itself with right strategy, network and approach to implement the mandated transaction in a highly professional manner
Apart from this I’ve also seed funded and mentored a Business management and Accounting App – Book Keeper focussing on small business with the turnover of less than 1 Million USD, which is a profitable venture successfully running in 19 countries.
As a leader and enabler, I collaborate with key stakeholders and inspire teams to realize the long-term goals and vision of any organization.
How did you come up with the idea of developing Mowize?
In the year 2014, while interacting with a colleague, I heard news about “A finance professional died of a heart attack. He was at a very high post in a software company and he died at the age of 42.”
When such situations occur, The family & spouse of these bread-winners needs financial protection And a lot of times we have a scenario where the dependants are completely oblivious to what the person has invested for them.
That’s when the concept of Mowize comes into the picture – A Digital Collaboration Tool is the ideal solution to this problem, where one can organize and share respective personal financial, investment & insurance details with their family members so that they have real-time access of that information in the event of an unexpected demise.
That’s how we developed a cloud-based Fin-tech platform called ‘Mowize’ (Money wise) for personal finance management available on Web, IOS and Android platform that helps individuals in:
A. Organizing all financial documents by digitizing it and linking it to the financial instrument categorized into Insurance, Investments, Accounts and liabilities with various sub-categories (we are using AWS as a cloud platform)
B. Allows real-time tracking of how investments are performing
C. Allows creation of Eco-system and sharing of these instruments with family members, wealth managers, nominees etc. over the platform with a view or editable rights
D. It facilitates informed and timely decisions with alerts and notification on various financial instruments and we keep independent experts/advisers on Insurance, Mutual funds, Real Estate, and loans who will respond to user queries related to these instruments
Thus Mowize is a multi-channel platform, where we understand every individual’s unique financial space to provide intelligent advice towards financial prosperity. Our algorithms help us with predictive analysis of the financial assets of our clients in different market trends. With regular guidance and suggestions, we provide and create a better and prosperous tomorrow for our clients.
Mowize provides a single platform to organize all investments of an individual with a variety of financial tools and to help them share their important life documents in a secure environment with the people they trust (immediate family members), and provide our clients with real-time tracking on how their assets are performing & evaluate their financial health.
