Funds are selected on quantitative parameters like volatality, FAMA Model, risk adjusted returns, rolling return coupled with a qualitative analysis of fund performance and investment styles through regular interactions / due diligence processes with fund managers. Advantages of Investing into a Mutual Fund The reason that mutual funds are so popular is that they offer the ability to easily invest in increasingly more complicated financial markets. A large part of the success of mutual funds is also the advantages they offer in terms of diversification, professional management and liquidity. Flexibilty - Mutual Fund investments also offers you a lot of flexibility with features such as systematic investment plans, systematic withdrawal plans & dividend reinvestment.

47

Affordability - They are available in units so this makes it very affordable. Because of the large corpus, even a small investor can benefit from its investment strategy. Liquidity - In open ended schemes, you have the option of withdrawing or redeeming your money at any point of time at the current NAV Diversification - Risk is lowered with Mutual Funds as they invest across different industries & stocks. Professional Management - Expert Fund Managers of the Mutual Fund analyse all options based on experience & research Potential of return -The fund managers who take care of your Mutual Fund have access to information and statistics from leading economists and analysts around the world. Because of this, they are in a better position than individual investors to identify opportunities for your investments to flourish. they are in a better position than individual investors to identify opportunities for your investments to flourish.

4 Open ended Fund/ Scheme: An open-ended fund or scheme is one that is available for subscription and repurchase on a continuous basis. These schemes do not have a fixed maturity period. Investors can conveniently buy and sell units at Net Asset Value (NAV) related prices which are declared on a daily basis. They key feature of openend scheme is liquidity. Close-ended Fund/ Scheme:

A close ended fund or scheme has a stipulated maturity period e.g. 5-7 years . The fund is open for subscription only during a specified period at the time of launch of the scheme . Investors can invest in the scheme at the time of initial public issue and there after they can buy or sell the units of the scheme on the stock exchanges where the units are listed .In order to provide an exit route to the investors , some close ended funds give an option of selling back the units to the mutual fund through periodic repurchase at NAV related prices. SEBI Regulation stipulate that at least one of the two exit routes is provided to the investor i.e. either repurchase facility or through listing on stock exchanges. These mutual funds scheme disclose NAV generally on weekly basis

ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES OF MUTUAL FUND Advanta2es of Mutual Funds: Professional Management - The primary advantage of funds (at least theoretically) is the professional management of your money. Investors purchase funds because they do not have the time or the expertise to manage their own portfolio. A mutual fund is a relatively inexpensive way for a small investor to get a full-time manager to make and monitor investments. Diversification - By owning shares in a mutual fund instead of owning individual stocks or bonds, your risk is spread out. The idea behind diversification is to invest in a large number of a~sets so that a loss in any particular investment is minimized by gains in others. In other words, the more stocks and bonds you own, the less anyone of them can hurt you (think about Enron). Large mutual funds typically own hundreds of different stocks in many different industries. It wouldn't be possible for an investor to build this kind of a portfolio with a small amount of money. Economies of Scale - Because a mutual fund buys and sells large amounts of securities at a time, its transaction costs are lower than you as an individual would pay. Liquidity - Just like an individual stock, a mutual fund allows you to request that your shares be converted into cash at any time. Simplicity - Buying a mutual fund is easy! Pretty well any bank has its own line of mutual funds, and the minimum investment is small. Most companies also have automatic purchase plans whereby as little as $100 can be invested on a monthly basis.

We under stand your world Disadvantages of Mutual Funds :

Professional Management- Talk about this in details in a later section .Did you notice how we qualified the advantage of professional management with the world theoretically ? Many investors debate over whether or not the so-called professionals are any better than you or I at picking stocks . Management is by no means infallible, and even if the funds loses money, the manager still takes his/her cut.

Costs- Mutual funds dont exist solely to make your life easier all funds are in it for a profit .The mutual fund industry is masterful at burying costs under layers of jargon. These costs are so complicated t5hat in this tutorial we have devoted an entire section to the subject.

Dilution- Its possible to have too much diversification (this is explained in our article entitled Are You Over Diversified ?). Because funds have small holdings in so many different companies , high returns from a few investment s often dont make much difference on the overall return . Dilution is also the result of a successful fund getting too big. When money pours into funds that have had strong success, the manager often has trouble finding a good investment for all the new money.

Taxes When making decisions about your money, fund managers dont consider your personal tax situation , For example , when a fund manager sells a security ,a capital gain tax ix triggered, which affects how profitable the individual is from the sale . It might have been more advantageous for the individual to defer the capital gains liability.

ABOUT SIP WHAT IS SYSTEMATIC INVESTMENT PLAN (SIP)? A Systematic Investment Plan (SIP) is an option that allows you to invest a fixed sum at periodic intervals on specific dates. This involves making investment of fixed sums of money, in a particular scheme, at predetermined periodical intervals of time. For instance, you could invest Rs.l 000 every month into a particular scheme. Some investor find it difficult to decide when to invest a lump sum amount for fear that they will invest when the NA V s are high. As this technique delivers the lowest average cost per unit, it is ideal for such investors. It is also beneficial for investors who wish to invest small amounts at regular intervals.

Why SIP?

A Systematic Investment Plan works for you in three ways: It helps you to save regularly and thus inculcates a sense of discipline.

It harnesses the power of compounding .

It is the best possible way you to reign in impulsive buys-and-sells that otherwise one is gripped by in times of market volatility. - Rupee cost averaging.

55

Power of compounding:

In reality, further the need deeper is the urge to postpone. But the fact is the longer you leave your money invested, the faster it will grow. When your returns begin to earn money and those returns start to earn ... small amounts of money can snowball very quickly. Compounding being the tool that allows you to make the most of small amounts invested for long periods To find out how you can harness compounding, have a go at this Cost Of Delay calculator. It tells you how much more you need to save each month for each year of delay.

Rupee cost averaging

A now familiar concept, it tells you how effective disciplined investing on specific dates is, as compared to lumpsum investing on random dates.

56

This could be easily understood through this illustration: Amount invested 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 10 9 10 11 12 13 17 14 11 10 12 15 . 1 0 0 .0 0 1 1 1 .1 1 1 0 0 .0 0 9 0 .9 0 9 8 3 .3 3 3 7 6 .9 2 3 5 8 .8 2 4 7 1 .4 2 9 9 0 .9 0 9 1 0 0 .0 0 8 3 .3 3 3 66.667 NAV Units Cum. units 100 211 311 402 485 562 621 693 783 883 967 1033 Cum. amount 1000 2000 3000 4000 5000 6000 7000 8000 9000 10000 11000 12000 Value of

Total amount = Rs.12000, Total units = 1033 Average cost per unit = Rs.120000/l033 = Rs.11.60 Average price per unit = Rs.12

57

SIPping the Standard Chartered Mutual Fund way:

1)Through Standing Instructions: If you hold accounts with Standard Chartered Bank, HDFC Bank and UTI Bank you just need to fill in the Standing Instruction slip that is contained in the main SIP application form. You have to give us at least 6 debits to enrol for a SIP.

2) Through Electronic Credit Service (ECS): If you do not have an account with any of the above mentioned banks then use our powerful AutoSave feature. Just fill up a "Mandate form for ECS (debit)AutoSave" form accompanied with a copy of a blank cheque. For either modes, you do not apply for a lumpsm investment to start a SIP. SIPs will also be available to investors during the New Fund Offering (NFO) of Standard Chartered Classic Equity Fund.

Debit Mandates Investors who hold bank accounts with Standard Chartered Bank no longer have to write out cheques whilst investing in any of our funds. The Debit Mandate is included as a part of the application form. Thus it saves you the bother of carrying your cheque book every time you think of investing.

SAMPLE SIZE 100 CUSTOMER SAMPLING TECHNIQUE SIMPLE RANDOM SAMPLING The Research Objective: The objective of my project to identify the target marking and segment it for HDFC Bank Ltd. Products in Kanpur. During the course of the project, I got the in-depth knowledge of all products offered by HDFC Bank like Saving Account, Fixed Deposit, Personal Loan, Car Loan, Mutual Funds and Insurance Products etc. So my objective was to segment whatever is applicable in that particular market.

a) To find out the awareness of HDFC product among the customers. b) To find out the factors affecting the purchase of HDFC products. c) To
find out from where the customer prefer to buy the HDFC

products.

d) To find out which bank is being preferred by the customer. e) To find out the purpose of taking HDFC products.

In this way, I have segmented the various markets of Kanpur according to their need and that was my objective. 67

Develop The Research Plan:The second stage of research process is developing the most efficient plan for collecting the needed information. Designing a research plan calls for decision on the data sources; research approaches, sampling plans and contact methods. Data Collection: SECONDARY DATA Secondary data is that data, those are collected for another purpose and already exist somewhere. Secondary data provide a starting point for research and offer the low cost and ready availability. When the needed data do not exist the researcher have to collect the primary data. PR IMARY DATA Primary data is that data which is freshly collected for a specific purpose for a specific research project. The researchers can collect the secondary data, primary data or he can collect both.

SURVEY RESEARCH: Surveys are the best method for descriptive research. Companies undertake this method to learn about the peoples knowledge, belief, preferences and satisfaction and to measure these magnitudes in general population. For this project report, the survey is conducted on the branches and at ATMs

68

. RESEARCH INSTRUMENT: The instrument, which is used in this research, is mainly questionnaire method. Questionnaire Method: - A questionnaire consists of a set of question presented to set of respondents. Due its flexibility, the questionnaire is far by the most common instrument used to collect primary data. Questionnaires are needed to be carefully developed, tested before they are administrated on a large scale. The questionnaire consists of close-ended questions in order to specify all possible answer and provide answer that are easier to interpret and tabulate.

FEEDBACK OF CUSTOMER TOWARDS BANK

As the pie chart, suggest that the number of satisfied customer is much more than the unsatisfied customer. The customer who are satisfied they are satisfied by the services provided by the bank like after sale services before sale services token system and thats all but the unsatisfied customer dont think that the token they are taking from the token machine is up to the mark because if they miss their number they need to take another token and wait for some more time instead of this they think that it is more better to stand in a line so the chances of missing their turn reduces, some customer think that the after sale services provided by the bank employees is not up to the mark because they are busy in some another task and they dont provide the services like the services they had provided before sale. 74

75

According to the survey and the graph the young people are not interested in fixed deposits because they want very high returns on there investment in very less time so they want there money to be invested in stock market equity and thats all thats why they dont want to invest there money in fixed deposits because here they get comparatively less returns. The person of 31 to 40 are somehow interested because they are newly married and they would like to save there money for there future. The person aged 41 to 50 Would like to invest there money in very safe area they even dont think about equity and share market because they have the responsibility of there children and they would like to save there money very - very safely thats why they have the best option of fixed deposits. The people aged 51 to 60 now they want to live there own life so they normally spend money on there own so chases of investing the money reduces. The people who invest they normally invest there money in fixed deposits or in some safe place like debt, liquidity or growth. The people aged 61 to 70 these people invest the most in fixed deposits because now they want to save there money for there grandsons or granddaughter and normally they dont spend there money on themselves.

As the graph explain that the person aged 20 to 30 are investing more in recurring deposits because these people are salaried and they are working somewhere and they are getting salary each month and they can easily invest some amount of there salary in recurring deposits. The people aged 31 to 40 invest less in recurring deposits because at this point of time they are looking forward to invest in long term investments. The people aged 41 to 50 invest very less because at this point of time they would like to spend money on there children and they cant afford to make saving from there salary. The people aged 51 to 60 these people stop earning and they start spending money on themselves and they dont have sufficient amount to invest in recurring deposits. The people aged 61 to 70 they stop earning and start spending there pension thats why the number of people in this section is very less.

As the graphs explain the young, people generally go for salary account and thats all because they dont want, there money to be is blocked thats why they go for zero balance account. But people aged between 31 to 40 some of them are ready to open a saving account because with help of this account they are getting free facilities like internet banking, mobile banking etc. the aged 41 to 50 would like to go for saving account because now they understand the meaning of saving the importance of saving in there lifes. The people aged 51 to 60 this is the group in which maximum number of people would like to go for saving account and the people aged 61 to 70 they normally dont want to go for saving account.

SALE OF PRODUCTS

47%

F.D's R.D's SAVING A/C

8%

As the graph shows the number of customer interested in fixed deposits is more than R.Ds and saving A/C. because people want to invest there money in one go instead of investing there money per month because they think that if they have the money they can invest there money at that point of time like if a person get retired he cant go for recurring deposit than so the number of people is more in fixed deposits.

CONCLUSION During my training, I improved my knowledge about the marketing techniques, which is beneficial for my future. I got the experience from different type of customer. However, after getting the knowledge about the products as well as about the customers I can say that

They can watch there small savings grow by getting the right and safe investment plan at the right time.
I hope that even after the above limitations this project study with its analysis would completely and truly represent the Bank. I hope after the study with the help of the recommendations and the suggestion, this project will not only highlight the negative areas of the bank but also help it to satisfy the customers. I hope that this project is complete and satisfactory for my as well as my institution. Less Investment, Less Lock-In Period and High Returns There will be a lot of competition with each offering better investment plans and services. People have a vast array of choice to choose. Foreign banks like (HSBC, and ABILLION Ambro) will bring in their management, financial and technical strength in the market, which would ensure better services. Thus, this project undertaken by me is an internal marketing research conducted by me on behalf of my bank. In this process, I ask the customer about the product offered by the bank I pitch customer in 2 branches of HDFC Bank in kanpur.

82

From the finding of the questions following conclusion have been derived

a) Maximum fixed deposits have been done in HDFC bank. b) Maximum people prefer to bank with HDFC bank. c) If the bank has good schemes and healthy interest rates then sales
increases.

d) People prefer to buy gold from the bank during festival days (navratre and
dewali) because bank is providing pure gold i.e. 99.99% at reasonable prices.

e) People want verities of schemes in fixed deposit and recurring deposit.

83

RECOMMENDATIONS AND SUGGESTION As it is, clear from the study that the customers exist in the market but due to verity of products, they got confused. If the bank wants to grow it, should provide high returns at less investment and also sustain its existing customer. There should be very effective customer department, so that problem of existing customer can be sorted out, as the customers are only one to spread the mouth of good. There is significantly high level of ignorance among the customer about many parameters on which the comparative study has been done between the two banks. There is need on the part of the bank to make people aware about the banking system and its various unique features. There is urgent need on the part of the bank to improve the services of network in Utter Pradesh, especially its coverage in kanpur because many customers have ranked other bank poorly on there parameters.

84

Many respondents indicate that bank should cover maximum districts in uttar Pradesh. So that bank can benefit on its own count if it improve its departments. Even existing subscriber (most of them) dont know how many varied function they can perform with the bank. Most of them do banking just for there day to day transaction. We should keep in mind all the following point: -

a) To conduct business according to high standards of honesty and to render


that services to its customer, which, in the same circumstances, it would apply to or demand for itself.

b) To

provide competent and focus customer, bank should provide better

services.

c) To engage in active and fair competition. d) To provide advertising and sales material those are clear as to purpose
and honest and fair as to content.

e) To f)

provide fair and expeditious handling of customer complaints and

disputes. Provide correct information to the customer so that he cant blame to the bank.
