Motilal oswal provided very poor advisory services. I lost my 50 % money within 5 months only because of poor advisory provided by my advisory. He always misguide me and his call is 100% wrong. my adviser is Mahesh Jaishwal.
I recommend to join motilal oswal firm to those people who want to loose their money in more faster and effective way.

Motilal is one of the worst brokerage firm. Never join this firm.

I also have a history of bad experience with their mode of establishing 'Customers' Relation'. First they will call you and will disappear thereafter. The staffs work for their own record and not for clients' good. Moreover the staffs also talk with the highest degree of arrogance as if they are the only broker operating in whole nation. The say one thing and will do one thing. If they debit your account with any untold charges or hidden items and no way it would be reversed or considered for any reconciliation. They need huge change in their attitude and approach. The should speak out the truth only, always.

After seeing advertisement of Motilal Oswal Securitis on TV claiming 30 years of experience in stock Marketing, I got interested to invest my hard earned money in MOS to get better return. I called MOS representative and explained him that I am Sr. Citizen and do not know ABC of investing in shares/stock. Representative, assured me that, I do not have to worry, as fund adviser shall take care of selecting of shares/ trading and shall inform me of particular scrips he has invested and sold. This way I can get return from 25% to 50% in a year. Now, I am a shattered man. In six month my capital has been eroded 25% in one portfolio and about 65% in 2nd portfolio. I want Mr. Ramdev Aggarwal Ji, co-founder of MOS ,to look into it personally.
