A Demat account holder (also called a beneficiary owner)can have securities balances either by converting his existing physical certificates or bybuying in Demat form.Benefits of Demats :-• Electronic settlement of trades• No stamp duty on transfer of securities• Elimination of risks associated with physical certificates such as bad delivery, fake Securities• Reduction in paperwork involved in transfer of securities• Reduction in transaction cost• Nomination facility Change in address recorded with DP gets registered electronically With all companies in which investor holds securities eliminating the need to Correspond with each of them separately• Transmission of securities is done by DP eliminating correspondence with
Companies• Investments in Equity, Debt instruments, Mutual Funds, Kisan Vikas Patras, National Saving Certificates and other Government Securities can be held in a single account• Automatic credit of shares, arising out of split / consolidation / merger, bonus, IPO allotments etc., into demat account.What is a stock market?The stock market is a central market place for raising funds by Governments andvarious corporations to expand their businesses and shareholding base. This is usuallydone by issuing shares in a company which can then be bought and sold.What is a stock exchange?The fundamental role of a stock exchange is to provide a fair and internationallycompetitive market place for the trading of financial securities for the benefit of allparticipants (Listed Companies, Institutions and small investors).All countries who have a local stock exchange aim to provide a market place whereby: • Companies and Governments can raise funds, and • Investors can invest surplus funds in anticipation of receiving dividends and capital gain from their share investments.What is a share market?The share market comprises of two markets:The first is a primary market whereby companies or Governments issue new shares inorder to raise capital to expand their operations (for whatever reason) and take on awider range of shareholders. This is done by issuing an investment statement and/or aprospectus through an organizing or underwriting broker.The second is the secondary market, which is the central market place provided by thestock exchange, where investors trade existing securities/shares.What is a share and what is their use?
• A share is a basic unit of ownership in a company. When you buy a share, you become a part-owner of a company. Ownership of that company is divided into millions of parts. These parts are called shares and each person who buys a share is a shareholder. • The directors of the company are employed to manage the business, but the company is wholly owned by its shareholders. • When a company is founded, it often progresses and develops and often to expand, it requires financial help. The company can opt to borrow funds from the bank and pay interest like a loan or they can opt to raise funds by becoming a listed company on the share market. There are many Rules and Regulations that a company must abide by and comply with, if they wish to list and issue securities on the New Zealand Stock Exchange. These Rules are administered and enforced by an independent Market Surveillance Panel Once a Company has become a Listed Company on the NZX, it can raise funds by offering shares in return for cash. A share of ownership is what the investor gets in exchange for their financial support. PRODUCT PORTFOLIO / PRODUCT BUCKETIndiabulls Securities Ltd works in three market :- 1. Equity 2. Derivatives 3. CommoditiesEquityEquity is a term whose meaning depends very much on the context. In general, you canthink of equity as ownership in any asset after all debts associated with that asset arepaid off. For example, a car or house with no outstanding debt is considered the ownersequity since he or she can readily sell the items for cash. Stocks are equity becausethey represent ownership of a company, whereas bonds are classified as debt becausethey represent an obligation to pay and not ownership of assets.To support its investment, a firm must find means to finance them. Equity and debtrepresent two broad sources of finance for a business firm.Derivatives
Derivatives as a term conjures up visions of complex numeric calculations, speculativedealings and comes across as an instrument which is the prerogative of a few ‘smartfinance professionals’. In reality it is not so. In fact, a derivative transaction helps coverrisk, which would arise on the trading of securities on which the derivative is based anda small investor, can benefit immensely.A derivative security can be defined as a security whose value depends on the values ofother underlying variables. Very often, the variables underlying the derivative securitiesare the prices of traded securities.Let us take an example of a simple derivative contract:Ram buys a futures contract.He will make a profit of Rs 1000 if the price of Infosys rises by Rs 1000.If the price is unchanged Ram will receive nothing.If the stock price of Infosys falls by Rs 800 he will lose Rs 800.As we can see, the above contract depends upon the price of the Infosys scrip, which isthe underlying security. Similarly, futures trading has already started in Sensex futuresand Nifty futures. The underlying security in this case is the BSE Sensex and NSE Nifty.Derivatives and futures are basically of 3 types:Forwards and FuturesOptionsSwaps( i ) Forward contractA forward contract is the simplest mode of a derivative transaction. It is an agreement tobuy or sell an asset (of a specified quantity) at a certain future time for a certain price.No cash is exchanged when the contract is entered into.What is an Index?
To understand the use and functioning of the index derivatives markets, it is necessaryto understand the underlying index. A stock index represents the change in value of aset of stocks, which constitute the index. A market index is very important for the marketplayers as it acts as a barometer for market behavior and as an underlying in derivativeinstruments such as index futures.The Sensex and NiftyIn India the most popular indices have been the BSE Sensex and S&P CNX Nifty. TheBSE Sensex has 30 stocks comprising the index which are selected based on marketcapitalization, industry representation, trading frequency etc. It represents 30 large well-established and financially sound companies. The Sensex represents a broad spectrumof companies in a variety of industries. It represents 14 major industry groups. Thenthere is a BSE national index and BSE 200. However, trading in index futures has onlycommenced on the BSE Sensex.While the BSE Sensex was the first stock market index in the country, Nifty waslaunched by the National Stock Exchange in April 1996 taking the base of November 3,1995. The Nifty index consists of shares of 50 companies with each having a marketcapitalization of more than Rs 500 crore.Futures and stock indicesFor understanding of stock index futures a thorough knowledge of the composition ofindexes is essential. Choosing the right index is important in choosing the right contractfor speculation or hedging. Since for speculation, the volatility of the index is importantwhereas for hedging the choice of index depends upon the relationship between thestocks being hedged and the characteristics of the index.Choosing and understanding the right index is important as the movement of stockindex futures is quite similar to that of the underlying stock index. Volatility of the futuresindexes is generally greater than spot stock indexes.Every time an investor takes a long or short position on a stock, he also has an hiddenexposure to the Nifty or Sensex. As most often stock values fall in tune with the entiremarket sentiment and rise when the market as a whole is rising.
Retail investors will find the index derivatives useful due to the high correlation of theindex with their portfolio/stock and low cost associated with using index futures forhedging.Understanding index futuresA futures contract is an agreement between two parties to buy or sell an asset at acertain time in the future at a certain price. Index futures are all futures contracts wherethe underlying is the stock index (Nifty or Sensex) and helps a trader to take a view onthe market as a whole.Index futures permits speculation and if a trader anticipates a major rally in the markethe can simply buy a futures contract and hope for a price rise on the futures contractwhen the rally occurs. We shall learn in subsequent lessons how one can leverage onesposition by taking position in the futures market.In India we have index futures contracts based on S&P CNX Nifty and the BSE Sensexand near 3 months duration contracts are available at all times. Each contract expireson the last Thursday of the expiry month and simultaneously a new contract isintroduced for trading after expiry of a contract.( ii ) OptionsStock markets by their very nature are fickle. While fortunes can be made in a jiffy moreoften than not the scenario is the reverse. Investing in stocks has two sides to it –a)Unlimited profit potential from any upside (remember Infosys, HFCL etc) or b) adownside which could make you a pauper.Derivative products are structured precisely for this reason -- to curtail the risk exposureof an investor. Index futures and stock options are instruments that enable you to hedgeyour portfolio or open positions in the market. Option contracts allow you to run yourprofits while restricting your downside risk.Apart from risk containment, options can be used for speculation and investors cancreate a wide range of potential profit scenarios.What are options?
Some people remain puzzled by options. The truth is that most people have been usingoptions for some time, because options are built into everything from mortgages toinsurance.An option is a contract, which gives the buyer the right, but not the obligation to buy orsell shares of the underlying security at a specific price on or before a specific date.‘Option’, as the word suggests, is a choice given to the investor to either honour thecontract; or if he chooses not to walk away from the contract.To begin, there are two kinds of options:Call Options and Put Options.A Call Option is an option to buy a stock at a specific price on or before a certain date.In this way, Call options are like security deposits. If, for example, you wanted to rent acertain property, and left a security deposit for it, the money would be used to insurethat you could, in fact, rent that property at the price agreed upon when you returned. Ifyou never returned, you would give up your security deposit, but you would have noother liability. Call options usually increase in value as the value of the underlyinginstrument rises.When you buy a Call option, the price you pay for it, called the option premium, securesyour right to buy that certain stock at a specified price called the strike price. If youdecide not to use the option to buy the stock, and you are not obligated to, your onlycost is the option premium.A Put Options are options to sell a stock at a specific price on or before a certain date.In this way, Put options are like insurance policiesIf you buy a new car, and then buy auto insurance on the car, you pay a premium andare, hence, protected if the asset is damaged in an accident. If this happens, you canuse your policy to regain theinsured value of the car. In this way, the put option gains in value as the value of theunderlying instrument decreases. If all goes well and the insurance is not needed, theinsurance company keeps your premium in return for taking on the risk.With a Put Option, you can "insure" a stock by fixing a selling price. If somethinghappens which causes the stock price to fall, and thus, "damages" your asset, you canexercise your option and sell it at its "insured" price level. If the price of your stock goesup, and there is no "damage," then you do not need to use the insurance, and, once
again, your only cost is the premium. This is the primary function of listed options, toallow investors ways to manage risk.Technically, an option is a contract between two parties. The buyer receives a privilegefor which he pays a premium. The seller accepts an obligation for which he receives afee.There are two types of options: • Call Options • Put OptionsCall optionsCall options give the taker the right, but not the obligation, to buy the underlying sharesat a predetermined price, on or before a predetermined date.Put OptionsA Put Option gives the holder of the right to sell a specific number of shares of anagreed security at a fixed price for a period of time.eg: Sam purchases 1 INFTEC (Infosys Technologies) AUG 3500 Put --Premium 200This contract allows Sam to sell 100 shares INFTEC at Rs 3500 per share at any timebetween the current date and the end of August. To have this privilege, Sam pays apremium of Rs 20,000 (Rs 200 a share for 100 shares).The buyer of a put has purchased a right to sell. The owner of a put option has the rightto sell.Commodities
A commodity is something that is relatively easily traded, that can be physicallydelivered, and that can be stored for a reasonable period of time. It is a characteristic ofcommodities that prices are determined on the basis of an active market, rather than bythe supplier (or other seller) on a "cost-plus" basis. Examples of commodities includenot only minerals and agricultural products such as iron ore, crude oil, ethanol, sugar,coffee, aluminium, rice, wheat, gold, diamonds, or silver, but also so-called"commoditized" products such as personal computers.Linguistically, the word commodity came into use in English in the 15th century, beingderived from the French word "commodité", meaning todays (2000) "convenience" interm of quality of services. The Latin root meaning is commodities, referring variously tothe appropriate measure of something; a fitting state, time or condition; a good quality;efficaciousness or propriety; and advantage, or benefit. The German equivalent is dieWare, i.e. wares or goods offered for sale. The French equivalent is "product de base"like energy, goods, or industrial raw material TARGETS/TASKSI am doing my Executive Training with INDIABULLS SEDCURITIES LIMITED inUdaipur Branch.

Research methodology is a way to systematically solve the research problem. It maybe understood as a science of studying how research is done scientifically. We studythe various steps that are generally adopted by a researcher in studying his researchproblem along with the logic behind them. It is necessary for the researcher to know notonly the research methods or techniques but also the methodology. Researcher alwaysneeds to understand the assumptions underline various technique and they need toknow the criteria by which they can decide that certain technique and procedures will beapplicable to certain problems and other will not.The predefined objective can be achieved by following ways: o Studying the buying behavior of customer. o Comparing sales of different players.TYPE OF RESEARCH:Personal interview approach was adopted for the project. In this type of research, theresearcher has to contact the person directly to know the available information andanalyze the data was available in interviewer’s statements. This was one of the mainsources for the project.The other approach was PERSONNEL RESEARCH. It is based on the personalknowledge. It is applicable to phenomenon that can be expressed in terms of words.RESEARCH PROCESS:
Research Process consists of a series of action or steps necessary to effectively carryout the research and the desired sequencing of these steps. The various steps, whichprovided guidelines to the research process pertaining to the project, are as follows: 1) Formulating the research problem Formulation of research problem involves understanding the problem thoroughly and rephrasing the same into meaningful terms from an analytical point of view. 2) Extensive literature survey It is necessary for the researcher to conduct an extensive survey connected with the problem. For the purpose manual, company records, journals, published data can be used. 3) Development of working hypotheses Working hypotheses is a tentative assumption made in order to draw out and rest its logical or empirical consequences. 4) Preparing the research design The researcher will be required to prepare a research i.e. he will have to state the conceptual structure within which research would be conducted. The function of research design is to provide the collection of relevant evidence with minimum expenditure of efforts, time and money. 5) Determining the sample design The researcher must decide a way of selecting a sample or what is popularly known as sample design. The types of sample design are: o Simple Sampling
o Random Sampling o Systematic Random Sampling o Stratified Sampling o Quota Sampling o Cluster and Area Sampling o Multistage Sampling o Sequential Sampling o CensusFor this project, Random Sampling was used among the above-mentioned types.Since the time period was limited to 2 months, the sampling size was limited to 75. 6) Collection of data While deciding the methods of data collection to be used for study the researcher should keep in mind two types of data viz. Primary Data The Primary Data are those, which are collected a fresh and for the first time and thus happen to be original in character. Secondary Data Secondary data means data that are already available i.e. they refer to the data which have already been collected and segregated by someone else. The researcher has to determine the various sources of obtaining secondary data. Secondary data may be published or unpublished in nature.
Published data are available in: Publications of central, state and local newspapers • Publication of foreign government or of international bodies • Technical or trade journals • Books, magazines and newspaper and Internet • Public record and statistics, historical documents and sources of public information. Data Collection Data used for the project was the secondary and primary data. Methods of Data Collection • Personal Interview • Questionnaire & • Telephonic Interview. 7) Analysis of data Analyses of data can of two types: • Quantitative analysis • Qualitative analysisThus analysis of data require a number of closely related operations such asestablishment of categories, the application of these categories into raw data throughtabulation, chart and then draw inferences. Analysis work is generally based on thecomputation of various percentage, co-efficient etc. by applying various statisticalformulae.
Preparation of ReportsAfter analysis, the next step is in the preparation of the report. The report has beenprepared according to the report writing principles.The Objective, clarity in presentation of ideas and the uses of charts have beenmaintained throughout the report.Once the data has been collected, the researcher has to process, analyze and interpretthe same. It was emphasized that the researcher should exercise good care to ensurethat reliable data are not properly processed and analyzed. Sufficient attention is oftennot given to these aspects, with the result that the quality of the report suffers.Editing – The first task in data is editing. It is the process by which data are preparedfor subsequent coding. As it is very subjective process, editing is the process ofexamining errors and omission in the collected data and making necessary in the samethis is desirable when there is more inconsistency in the responses.Coding – Coding is the procedure of classifying the answers to a question inmeaningful categories the symbol used to indicate the categories are called codes.Coding is necessary to carry out the subsequent operation of tabulation and analyzingdata.Coding involves two steps:Tabulation: Tabulation comprises of sorting of data into different categories andcounting the number of cases that belongs to each categories.One is unvaried tabulation. This includes the numbers of responses to one question orto count. It’s very simplest way to tabulate where two or more variables are involved intabulation. It is called vicariate or multivariate tabulation. In marketing research project,generally both type of tabulation is used.
INDIAN Capital Market-Indian Stock Markets are one of the oldest in Asia. Its history dates back to nearly 200years ago. The earliest records of security dealings in India are meager and obscure.The East India Company was the dominant institution in those days and business in itsloan securities used to be transacted towards the close of the eighteenth century.By 1830s business on corporate stocks and shares in Bank and Cotton presses tookplace in Bombay. Though the trading list was broader in 1839, there were only half adozen brokers recognized by banks and merchants during 1840 and 1850.The 1850s witnessed a rapid development of commercial enterprise and brokeragebusiness attracted many men into the field and by 1860 the number of brokersincreased into 60.In 1860-61 the American Civil War broke out and cotton supply from United States ofEurope was stopped; thus, the Share Mania in India begun. The number of brokersincreased to about 200 to 250. However, at the end of the American Civil War, in 1865,a disastrous slump began (for example, Bank of Bombay Share which had touched Rs2850 could only be sold at Rs. 87).At the end of the American Civil War, the brokers who thrived out of Civil War in 1874,found a place in a street (now appropriately called as Dalal Street) where they wouldconveniently assemble and transact business. In 1887, they formally established inBombay, the "Native Share and Stock Brokers Association" (which is alternativelyknown as " The Stock Exchange "). In 1895, the Stock Exchange acquired a premise inthe same street and it was inaugurated in 1899. Thus, the Stock Exchange at Bombaywas consolidated.GROWTHThe working of stock exchanges in India started in 1875. BSE is the oldest stock marketin India. The history of Indian stock trading starts with 318 persons taking membershipin Native Share and Stock Brokers Association, which we now know by the nameBombay Stock Exchange or BSE in short. In 1965, BSE got permanent recognition fromthe Government of India. National Stock Exchange comes second to BSE in terms ofpopularity. BSE and NSE represent themselves as synonyms of Indian stock market.The history of Indian stock market is almost the same as the history of BSE.
The 30 stock sensitive index or Sensex was first compiled in 1986. The Sensex iscompiled based on the performance of the stocks of 30 financially sound benchmarkcompanies. In 1990 the BSE crossed the 1000 mark for the first time. It crossed 2000,3000 and 4000 figures in 1992. The reason for such huge surge in the stock market wasthe liberal financial policies announced by the then financial minister Dr. Man MohanSingh. The up-beat mood of the market was suddenly lost with Harshad Mehtascam. It came to public knowledge that Mr. Mehta, also known as the big-bull of Indianstock market diverted huge funds from banks through fraudulent means. He played with270 million shares of about 90 companies. Millions of small-scale investors becamevictims to the fraud as the Sensex fell flat shedding 570 points.To prevent such frauds, the Government formed The Securities and Exchange Board ofIndia, through an Act in 1992. SEBI is the statutory body that controls and regulates thefunctioning of stock exchanges, brokers, sub-brokers, portfolio managers investmentadvisors etc. SEBI oblige several rigid measures to protect the interest of investors.Now with the inception of online trading and daily settlements the chances for a fraud isnil, says top officials of SEBI. • Sensex crossed the 5000 mark in 1999 and the 6000 mark in 2000. • The 7000 mark was crossed in June and the 8000 mark on September 8 in 2005. • Sensex crossed the 10000 mark in 2006. • Many foreign institutional investors (FII) are investing in Indian stock markets on a very large scale. • The liberal economic policies pursued by successive Governments attracted foreign institutional.
Future of Indian stock marketsThe stock market is booming in spite of the low agriculture output. The Monsoon is goodin an overall sense but still the question remains about who will take the credit for it. Theanswer is the karma of the people. I would like to appreciate the Indian politicians andthe industrialists who are pawns of destiny for doing many things positive andproductive. India as a country is running a very good period and the very position of theplanets in transit are giving wonderful result. • Only less than 1 per cent of the population own stocks and less than 1,000 individuals control the market, the majority being the FIIS, the promoters of the company. The credit should go to the media for making stock markets the headlines. First of all, Indian bourses in the future will be one of the best investments in the world.There will be a time when it can even reach 3000 points in the Nifty. India will begin oneof the best data of sun which will work in its favor. So before 2009 Indian boursesshould go from high to high from time to time. • Now this bull run will continue. • There can be some correction in the BSE Sensex at the 7500 points level. • The market will hover between the 6000-7000 till mid-August. • There will be huge fluctuations. • Better for many investors and new entrants for the market to cool down a bit and let it come well below 7000. • In any case, if you are long-term players, then step in and buy now and forget for another 10 years. You will make a killing in the Indian markets. • Most of the tech companies and the main index will do well but slightly on the lower side of expectations.
National Stock Exchange (NSE)With the liberalization of the Indian economy, it was found inevitable to lift the Indianstock market trading system on par with the international standards. On the basis of therecommendations of high powered Pherwani Committee, the National Stock Exchangewas incorporated in 1992 by Industrial Development Bank of India, Industrial Credit andInvestment Corporation of India, Industrial Finance Corporation of India, all InsuranceCorporations, selected commercial banks and others.Trading at NSE can be classified under two broad categories:(a) Wholesale debt market and(b) Capital market.Wholesale debt market operations are similar to money market operations - institutionsand corporate bodies enter into high value transactions in financial instruments such asgovernment securities, treasury bills, public sector unit bonds, commercial paper,certificate of deposit, etc.There are two kinds of players in NSE:(a) trading members and(b) participants.Recognized members of NSE are called trading members who trade on behalf ofthemselves and their clients. Participants include trading members and large playerslike banks who take direct settlement responsibility.Trading at NSE takes place through a fully automated screen-based trading mechanismwhich adopts the principle of an order-driven market. Trading members can stay at theiroffices and execute the trading, since they are linked through a communication network.The prices at which the buyer and seller are willing to transact will appear on thescreen. When the prices match the transaction will be completed and a confirmation slipwill be printed at the office of the trading member.
NSE has several advantages over the traditional trading exchanges. They are asfollows: • NSE brings an integrated stock market trading network across the nation. • Investors can trade at the same price from anywhere in the country since inter- market operations are streamlined coupled with the countrywide access to the securities. • Delays in communication, late payments and the malpractice’s prevailing in the traditional trading mechanism can be done away with greater operational efficiency and informational transparency in the stock market operations, with the support of total computerized network.Unless stock markets provide professionalized service, small investors and foreigninvestors will not be interested in capital market operations. And capital market beingone of the major sources of long-term finance for industrial projects, India cannot affordto damage the capital market path. In this regard NSE gains vital importance in theIndian capital market system. Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE)
Bombay Stock Exchange Limited is the oldest stock exchange in Asia with a richheritage. Popularly known as "BSE", it was established as "The Native Share & StockBrokers Association" in 1875.

In the diagram above, Jobber (1995) uses a similar approach as astructure for the implementation of internal marketing. The process is straightforward. • Set objectives for internal marketing e.g. to persuade 100 staff to join a new Performance Related Pay (PRP) scheme. • Your strategy is internal marketing. • Tactics would include an internal application of the marketing mix, and could include staff forums, presentations, an intranet, away days, videos, personal visits by company directors or newsletters.
• Evaluation would consider the take up of PRP against your objectives, attendees at away days, visits to an intranet page, and so on..Lets have a look a closer look at the practicalities of internal marketing Internal marketingIn previous lessons, you will have seen that the process of marketing follows a familiarpattern for which we use the acronym AOSTC - Analysis, Objectives, Strategies,Tactics, and Control.

However, I was able to achieve my targets assigned to me in this period of one month,but there are some roadblocks that hinders me in achieving my targets or to excel meabove my targets. These are as follows: - 1. Competitors :- In security market there are lot many player which are being emerged as a competitors and they are giving the tough competition to the Indiabulls Securities Ltd. The competitors’ products are very attractive to create new customer and grab the existing customer. 2.

Conventional Ideas:- People are having conventional idea and they do not want to be changed their account because they believe in maintaining the relationship whether they are on risk cause of they are having their account in local brokers so it is also hassle to complete the target. 4. Misconception:- In the mind of the people they are having misconception because they think that the share market is like gamble so the word to mouth publicity is going in negative way. 5. Time Constraint:- Time limit is one of the most hassle in the way of achieving the target because time can not be in hand and some times customers give the time when we are on other work so it is the lost of customer. 6. Unknown Location:- We are not familiar with the Udaipur city so sometimes we cannot reach out the customer and that is why customer are switching their idea to open demat account from Indiabulls to another. 7. Conveyance Problem:- We are out sider in Udaipur so we are not having proper conveyance so we cannot reach out to last or inside of the city.
8. Irregularity of Market:- It is also one of the most hassle by that investors fear to invest although they are having good knowledge so we cannot help them out to break their thinking.

It can benefit tostock market.
As far as financial marketing is very necessary for Indian stock market is concerned,which is constantly monitored and upgraded to pre-empt market failures. It can betermed as good but it is not enough to reduce the risk of broking house. Broking housesitself have to take actions for reducing the risk bears by itself and its customers.As far as Indiabulls securities ltd. is concerned, its internal & interactive marketing forfinancial marketing system is good. The company has instituted a specialized internal &interactive marketing for financial marketing management team and its systems aremanaged centrally to ensure that it can, at all times, measure and manage the financialmarketing on online and offline transactions on a real-time basis. Marketing dept. of theco. is doing well to increase the trading and settlement process.As we all are very well aware that stock market is so much volatile and unpredictablethat nobody can trace the behavior of the market. In this situation risk managementsystem provides effective tools to reduce the risk of investors and broking houses.RECOMMENDATION & SUGGESTION Exiting customers should be provided better response & services so that by there good Word Of Mouth Company will get more customers. Advertisements should be given in the magazines related to Business, Management service, Electronics media, and business world or by installing stalls in different-different areas etc. Awareness should be created among the prospective clients. Interest rate on funds provided to investors should be reduced. Company should focus on the age group of 25-40.
