CLIX in Focus

Why the Move?

In order to contain the second wave of coronavirus outbreak, certain governments across the globe are pausing the reopening process and imposing social-distancing measures. In the current scenario, consumers are opting for online retailers to purchase food items and other goods. This is driving orders for online retailers like Amazon. Also, the pandemic has resulted in some changes in the lifestyle and preference of people. Most of the surveys have found that people are opting for online shopping over visiting a brick-and-mortar store for their purchases of essential food items and supplies, even when the economies were reopening. This is making funds like CLIX an attractive investment option.
