Powerful growth of Reliance Money
Reliance Money is growing at an extraordinary growth rate, which is primarily due to the highly aggressive selling strategies that the company has adopted. Reliance Money has become India’s largest retail brokerage company in terms of number of clients within just a year of its official launch of operations as per a report in Economic Times March 26, 2008, page no. 18.
Reliance Money as a competitor to major Indian banks
Even being an NBFC, Reliance Money is giving a tough straight competition to a large number of well-established banks in India. There have been reports that Reliance Money would be converting into a banking institution within a few years time from now. How feasible would this conversion be? What would be the major challenges in front of Reliance Money? What would be its impact on the banking industry in India? What could be the areas of strengths and weakness for the company? Steps which the company would have to take up to be successful, etc? A recent report has tried to address all these questions and also focused on Basel-II Norms with which the Indian Banking Industry will have to comply with.
