"Groww has raised $83 million in Series D round at a valuation of more than $1 billion. Tiger Global led the fundraising with the participation of Groww's existing investors," the company said in a statement.

"Only around 25 million people in India are investing in stocks or mutual funds. We will continue working to change this. The new capital will help us invest in new products, acquire talent, and continue building our financial education platforms," he said.
