  1. Title – Indianivesh PMS shuts down – What should investors do?

On account of the Covid 19 driven volatility IndiaNivesh, announced the closure of its Portfolio Management Services (PMS). The PMS had a size of ₹60 crore and 190 clients. IndiaNivesh clients on the broking side have also faced delays in getting payouts. However, this is due to critical staff not being able to reach the office for carrying out the smooth operations, said the statement. An email sent out by IndiaNivesh to its clients allowed them to either transfer the shares to a demat account in their name or have the PMS manager sell shares and credit their bank accounts.
