Investment-focused educational platform Octa has announced a three-year partnership with Olympic Gold winning athlete Neeraj Chopra as it plans to transform investing into a lifestyle accessibility for Indians.
On August 15, Octa launched a video campaign where the Olympic champion shared his views on investing and its place in his life.
Speaking about the commonalities between sports and investing, Chopra said, “I think both things require a lot of patience. Athletes work very hard in training and need to be careful not to rush into competitions before they are completely sure about their bodies’ fitness. With investments, it's similar since you can’t rush into things without educating yourself and can’t expect immediate returns,” he added.
When asked about his thoughts on the collaboration with Octa, Chopra said, “I’m excited about this collaboration since I feel financial literacy and education about the need for investing is critical for India’s youth. I am hoping to use this collaboration with Octa to educate myself and use the platform to spread this awareness among the country’s youth,” he said.
Moreover, the Octa press office also said, “We are very excited to partner with Neeraj Chopra, a brilliant athlete who inspires all of us to move forward and reach for new heights. Our collaboration is not only about investments. It’s about trusting professionals on the way to achieving goals. Neeraj instantly came to mind as an outstanding professional who could help us convey this message.”
