It has always been important for a business to know and understand how it fits in and interacts with the surrounding environment on both an internal (office/factory/shop environment) and external view (how your business operates with the outside world). Researching your environment will benefit you and/or your management team by putting you in a position to develop a strategy for both the long and short term.

Analyzing the Business The most influential way of doing this is to perform a SWOT analysis of the company. It is a common phrase used to abbreviate Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats. Each term is a heading for a separate analysis of the business but they can be related as seen below: Strengths provide an insight to your business Opportunities & Weaknesses in your business can cause immediate Threats A guideline of how to carry out the analysis is explained in the next section, but it is important to know that the SWOT analysis is only based upon information that is known by the assessors (you), and is seen as perhaps the more basic approach of analyzing a business’ position: but SWOT is still a powerful tool when looking for immediate benefits.

As a result of falling interest rates.  Market size and Characteristics: -India is a large and growing economy with rapidly expanding financial services sector. The projected growth rate of real GDP is greater than 9% per annum with higher growth in many sectors such as financial services. such as computers and telephones. This saves the time of the investors. These people are willing to use advanced communication tools.Terrorist attacks and other acts of violence or war. Indian financial sector presents a huge retail finance opportunity. THREATS  Economic slowdown: . Travel restrictions as a result of such incidents may have adverse affect on the ability to operate effectively. Thus. with the use of the computers and internet the stock market trading has become fast. The use of technology is influencing more people to invest in the stock market. Indian investors are getting attracted towards alternate investments such as the equity markets and are looking for newer financial products.

as explained in accounting a high turnover will always leads to high cost. employees are given high target of sales and those employees who are uncomfortable with that leave the organization. 2004 and surprisingly it is under process of doing it again in year 2007. There is another problem that exists is. this transfer of data takes place only ones when market opens and for the rest of the day Relation Manager has to depend on their own. this shows that there is further scope for its growth. The head office of Indiabulls is in Gurgoa (Haryana). customer are given regular updates of stock market on daily basis they are quiet satisfied with it. Indiabulls Securities Ltd is a company which is having maximum number of branches and largest client base but stands second in term of brokerage generation. This cutting of cost center is not done directly. Since formation of Indiabulls in year 2000 Indiabulls have adopted strategy of downsizing twice in year 2002. Apart from this it has been found that Indiabulls is having high labor turnover ratio. Hiring of technical analyst for branch will be too costly so the best way will be to improve the flow of information. The level of this problem is not serious & neither customer are aware of it. The above given situation brings us to the conclusion that Indiabulls is incurring high salary expenses with high labor turnover.CONCLUSION This conclusion relates with not what is written in the report rather. more attention is given to technical analysis of stock which will help Relation Managers to deliver calculated information to their customer. which in turn is given to customer. it goes beyond that. Thus if this flow of information is enhance customer as well as Relation Manager will reap more benefits. on daily basis it sends tips to all its branches through mail. lack of good guidance to clients so that they can make better decision while making investments. 114 . Thus customer satisfaction can enhance if. This finally led us to believe that Indiabulls can become a better company if it handles the above mentioned issue efficiently.



These are following problems that were observed while staying in Indiabulls which also includes recommendations. 1. As per NSDL guideline clients have to change their password every 15 th day. It becomes very difficult for a client to change and remember a new password after every 15 days. It increases the work of Relationship Manager also as he has to tell the clients their new password every time. Recommendation Since this guideline of changing the password by NSDL is not mandatory to follow. Other brokerage houses like ICICI DIRECT, HDFC, Share Khan, UTI etc. are not following this guideline. It is advisable for Indiabulls to reconsider this rule once again. It may be good for the company if they modify this guideline in terms of increasing the time limit from 15 days to 45-60 days. Another thing that can be done is software could be made in such a way that the client can directly send request of renewing password to the main server. The main server will automatically generate new password and send it to client’s mail ID. For this the client has to make sure that his/her mail Id is updated regularly.

2. Both Screen Based and Power Indiabulls software do not show purchased price and current market price of underlying on same screen at a time. To see original purchased price of underlying, a client has to check from his/her transaction history. That’s way system does not show percentage gain/loss of client on screen. Recommendation It would be easy for the client to get this advantage on his/her screen. Consider this recommendation while updating the software


3. Relationship manager is the person who takes care of client’s account. Due to
frequent changes in the Relationship manager a client is in dilemma that to whom he/she is supposed to contact. In general when the client calls, he/she is not aware about his/her Relationship manager. This can be due to the high attrition rate.

Recommendation Client should be informed through Phone, E-mail by the new Relationship manager personally. Confirmation should be sent from the H.Q to the client about his/her new Relationship Manager.

4. Margin Product is the facility provided by Indiabulls through which clients can utilize fund beyond their capacity of cash margin + stock margin on the basis of predetermined rate of interest. Most of the clients are not aware about this facility Recommendation Explain the clients through a simple example of how margin product works. A format of the same can be prepared and send through E-mail to every client.

5. It is observed that majority of clients who have done trade in Futures and Option Market, are in loss. Due to the lack of proper strategies most of the clients losing their money in this segment. Recommendation Prepare some of the presentations in series starting from primary level to advanced level on Futures and Option Market and send it to every client who has signed Futures and Option agreement in time to time.

6. Most of the Brokerage Houses are using advertising strategy for promoting their products. This is in form of print ads, TV commercials, holding seminars, Web advertising etc. For example Share Khan advertises its product by placing its advertisement on different other web sites. Some other companies


For example.like An and Rather. Web advertising (Placing ads into other popular web sites). people can be called in the office at weekends. SMS promotional schemes. Consider this recommendation while updating the online software in future. it would be beneficial for Indiabulls customers if they are provided with this facility online. Whereas all other competitors are providing this facility online Recommendation Since most of the companies are coming with their IPOs/FPOs. By conducting seminars. Banners and Hoardings. 118 . This can be done through. Indiabulls does not provide IPO subscription facility through its online software. Etc 7.      Print Media. Stock Holding Corporation use seminars as a means to promote their product Recommendation It would be an advantage if Indiabulls follows some kind of advertising strategy. Many clients are facing this problem as they have to go through paper work subscription method. conducting presentations.

This will help the company to read the market better and will also be in a better position to understand the needs of the customers. especially in areas were commercial crops are grown and the standard of living is high. Thus it acts as a mental barrier for potential customers. Tapping Rural Market: The Indian rural investors market are relatively untapped. This can be extremely beneficial for Indiabulls in the long run. Reduce the initial account opening charges: The charge for opening a trading and demat account in Indiabulls securities is high compared to its competitors. 119 . These people do not have much option to invest other than banks and post offices. Hence Indiabulls should concentrate more on advertising through print and electronic media. with only small and private firms meeting the current demand. especially through electronic media. Invest more on R&D: Indiabulls should concentrate on its research and development since most of its competitors are investing on R&D. Its competitors like Sharekhan. It can reduce the brokerage charges for large investors which will encourage them to invest more in the company. This influences the potential investors to open their account with another company which provides the same at lower prices. Indiabulls Securities can gain the ―First Mover Advantage‖ over its competitors. Hence Indiabulls should consider reducing their account opening charges. who tend to overlook all other benefits offered by Indiabulls.SUGGESTIONS Aggressive Promotions: Indiabulls Securities compared to its competitors concentrates less on advertising and promotions. Bring in more product differentiation: Product differentiation here means that Indiabulls securities should bring in more customized services and more value proposition for large investors. ICICI and Kotak are advertising aggressively through media.
