During the quarter, Jio Financial Services and BlackRock Inc. have agreed to form a Joint Venture to enter India's Asset Management Industry.

Last week, Jio Financial Services said that it had entered into a new joint venture (JV) with US-based BlackRock Inc to set up a wealth management and broking business in India less than a year after launching an asset management venture.
