Fyers Securities is a team of young, enthusiastic business people with over 10 years of trading and security industry experience. They are also associated with IL&FS Securities Services Limited for their demat account services and mutual fund services.

The closest similar practice would be with Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs).  However, Thematic Investment offers more flexibility than ETFs, because the companies to invest in a particular theme are identified by the broker, even the community sometimes.
