It has always been said that Indians are the best savers. On an average, a working Indian saves about 25% of his monthly income. However, when it comes to Investment, the same is not necessarily true.
This is because most of the Investment Planning done in India is not in a planned, structured way. It is often done spontaneously and haphazardly and not clearly linked to any financial goal or milestone. Most of the times investment is either done in traditional instruments such as Bank Savings Account/Bank Fixed Deposits (which do not yield returns that are able to counter inflation) or directly in Stock Markets (basis some unreliable tips by unauthorized stock brokers or friends or colleagues)
It has also been observed that when a client who is completely a novice (beginner) in the field of investments, his first “Go To” place to seek advice is his Bank. However, it is a common practice even for a Bank Relationship Manager to only sell (rather push) products which are more profitable for the bank itself and not necessarily keeping in mind the clients core need. Hence, this raises a question mark on the issue of need-based selling and integrity which are the 2 strong pillars of Investment Planning
Keeping this in mind, we decided to establish “CLIENTFIRST” so that we always put the clients interests and needs FIRST before anything and everything else.
At “CLIENTFIRST” we specialize in Goal-Based comprehensive Investment Planning for each client of ours. While meeting and interacting with each client, we always put ourselves in the clients’ shoes and “ALWAYS DO WHAT IS RIGHT FOR THE CLIENT”.
At “CLIENTFIRST”, we work on core values of a) Consumer Delight, b) Integrity and c) Confidentiality
