LIS is an interactive financial need assessment software that takes the customer through a series of simple steps to assess the amount he requires for each of his needs and if his current savings and investments are adequate to fulfil them. LIS is available in English, Hindi, Punjabi and Kannada.

"LIS has been designed with an objective to educate the customers about the importance of financial planning," the company's Senior VP (Products and Marketing) Rishi Mathur told reporters here today.
