A One-Stop Solution Provider
With a proven track record of adding value to customer’s portfolio and with in-depth knowledge in various sectors, Indcap provides an entire gamut of financial services with the wealth of experience brought in by its promoters. However, they faced challenge from the large investment banks.
“We observed that we face challenges from large investment banks who have backing of their parent company as an investor. The balance sheet of the parent was their biggest strength and our biggest challenge. However, the IMAC (“I M Available at Call) factor was missing, the personal rapport was missing. We capitalized on this weakness of big bracket investment bank and it became our selling point” highlights Samir.
