top 10 financial services influencers in India:
Shwetabh Gangwar - 1.13M Subscribers
When it comes to Shwetabh Gangwar, the first thing we may stumble upon is how he’s authored the National Bestseller ‘The Rudest Book Ever’. True, he’s a novelist, a public speaker, and a ‘professional problem solver’. But this man with a massive 1.13M follower base on YouTube and 181K followers on Instagram is much more layered than just that.
Operating the handle @mensutra to solve as many problems and issues – ranging from personal to financial – Shwetabh hails from Lucknow and is now based out of Delhi. Since starting @mensutra at the age of 26, he’s counselled numerous businesses to success. Classic of some geniuses, he’s hyperactive and efficient, but extremely modest when it comes to his skill and ability. His acute intrigue towards human nature, and sharp sense of observation have played a key role when it comes to guiding businesses and individuals at financial crossroads.
We’d say that’s a powerful influencer in fintech to collaborate with because of his diligent follower base.
Minute Stuff - 106K Subscribers
Minute Stuff is a Telugu channel that comes as one that’s a little off the books. This channel may well be one of the most interesting ones because of the bizarre and offbeat content they cover; this may range from stunning facts, inventions to look out for, travel and culture tips, scientific functions and facts, financial know-how and trends, and so much more.
True to its name, it’s the minute stuff that they bring our attention to. While their content is entirely in Telugu, it’s stuff to watch out for. Their staggering subscriber base on YouTube stands testimony to the validity and intrigue that the channel draws. For this reason, Confluencr collaborated with Minute Stuff to market 5Paisa – reaching their audience and making them aware of the services they had to offer.

Confluencr has pioneered influencer marketing solutions that have now become a staple part of the BFSI marketing mix.

With the restraints that apply to finance brands, it’s rather tough to create marketing campaigns that can truly promote the offerings. We have aptly leveraged influencers for an industry that much needed to find newer avenues, to shed off it’s primary image as boring or dull, and therefore now attracting a younger audience as well.
