New Delhi, February 6: Credit Card bill payment leader CRED on Tuesday announced the acquisition of the online wealth management platform Kuvera in an effort to take on the likes of Zerodha and Groww. However, the total acquisition cost has not been disclosed by the startup.

"Together with CRED we see an exciting opportunity to fast-track building new products and features for our community while also bringing a trusted wealth management solution to millions more," Gaurav Rastogi, Founder, Kuvera, said in a statement.

With this agreement on terms, the transaction -- a mix of cash and stock -- will proceed towards closure, the company said.
