As such, we sought to create "Perm Poon" together with our technology partner, SCB Abacus, who provided chatbot development and AI expertise. The chatbot is able to cleverly offer advice on mutual funds whether information on specific funds, funds to invest based on user objectives, or the ideal allocation of funds types based on user profile. We believe this chatbot will both greatly benefit and be well-received by customers especially novice investors."
