Drop the old cliché and do something different for yourself and your loved one this Valentine's Day. There is no better gift than ensuring the financial wellbeing of your loved one. Commonly seen, one of the biggest issues of contention between couples is money.

Harsh Jain, Co-founder, and COO, Groww, says, "The idea that helping your loved ones take full control of their financial life is one of the most meaningful and long-lasting gifts you can give. This can only be possible if people have access to a platform that facilitates hassle-free investing as well as have plenty of educational resources at their disposal to help them make a decision on their own."
