Frankly speaking, any job or the task, have the specific objective i.e. what is need and
what is the requirement of the particular work. In the same way my objective is also to
learn something from the summer internship program . It means that the training program
in any reputed company give the market knowledge of its subject matter of study.
The right choice of the company in which a student has to do the training is also the part
of the learning and what he/she wants to learn in the summer training.
In the short span since the insurance sector was opened up, many companies have
literally dictated the market’s evolution. Catering to all age and income segments, the
company stated out with the traditional insurance policies that were easy to understand,
the idea was to entice customers used to LIC’s style of functioning.
Reliance money began exploring new areas; it introduced modern products, like Unit-
linked Product where return are linked to the market performance of the underlying
assets.
Reliance Money leads and virtually all parameters; size of agent force, number of policies
sold, total sum, total sum assured, premium income and productivity of agents it has set
exacting standards for its range of products, riders offered, quality of information in
promotional material and even in the insurance awareness events organized.
What has been in favor of Reliance Money is the range of product in each
segment of life insurance-traditional, unit-linked and single premium option, that are for
retirement plan or child plan. With such a comprehensive bouquet, it caters to the
financial goals of a customer. Reliance Money a growing reputed company give the good
platform in selling of the product like insurance, Equity & commodities, derivative,
IPO’s, offshore investment, mutual fund, gold coins etc.
So the objective of study is to see in the basket of product and satisfaction of
customers with the company through research work in Bokaro.

7
This project has been a great learning experience for me, at the same time it gave me
enough scope to implement my analytical ability.
The first part gives an insight about the Demat Account, Life Insurance, General
Insurance and mutual funds and theirs various aspects. It is purely based on whatever I
learned at Reliance Money. One can have a brief knowledge about mutual funds and all
its basics through the project. Other than that the real servings come when one moves
ahead. Some of the most interesting questions regarding these products have been
covered. Some of them are:

• Why has it become one of the largest financial intermediaries?

• How investors do chose between funds and these products?

Most popular stocks among fund managers, most lucrative sectors for fund managers, a
special report on Systematic Investment Plan, does fund performance persists and the
topping of all the servings in the form of portfolio analysis tool and its application.

All the topics have been covered in a very systematic way. The language has been kept
simple so that even a layman could understand.

All the quarries of the customer asked by them had been solved with the support of the
seniors in the organization. The problems of the customer were being recorded for the
purpose of the research and development.

8
The scope of the study refers to the job that to know about the activities of the
organization. The study means that the analysis of the products of the company on which
he/she has to focus.

During the summer training the volunteer need to find out the corporate strategies of the
running company and the mile stone which the company has covered during its journey.
In the summer training, it is necessary for the student that he /she involve with the
experience guys to get the knowledge about the company. That is how the company has
got the success, Or if it is going in the loss, why.

In my training period I have found that the reliance group is the biggest group in Indian
companies. I felt that I can learn the more in the Reliance Life Insurance Limited.
Reliance Life Insurance Limited is the part of the Reliance Capital Limited which is a
growing company in the financial products.

Reliance Anil Dhirubhai Ambani group is also deals in communication, energy, natural
resources, media, and entertainment, healthcare and infrastructure.

official launch. It has over 5,000 outlets across 700 towns/cities. Average daily turnover –
in excess of Rs 2,000 crores.
Considering the entire life market, including the Rs. 12,890 crores booked by life
insurance Corporation, Reliance life insurance market share works out to around 6.25%.
The life insurance market continuous to be dominated by LIC which has about 67% share
this only a marginal dip from its 73% share in end-July. These comparisons are only for
first year or new business premium.
The gap between Reliance life insurance and the second-in-line private insurer is vast. In
fact, this scenario has led some analysts to wonder if the company is not a trifle too
aggressive. But others say this has more to do with the companies’ customer-centric

14
focus, its pan-India presence and superior risk management and investment strategies.
Reliance Money is not, however, resting on its laurels.

Company’s customer centric approach will be studied during the training period and the
finding of the research work will definitely focus on the present condition & future
requirement (if any) relating to products of company.

Products of Life Insurance


Life Insurance products are usually referred to as ‘plans’ of insurance. These plans have
two basic elements; one is the “Death Cover” providing for the benefits being paid on the

26
death of the insured person within a specified period. The other is the “Survival Benefit”
providing for the benefit being paid on survival of a specified period.
• Plans of insurance that provide only death cover are called “Term Assurance”
Plans.
• Plans of insurance that provide only survival benefits are called “Pure
Endowment” Plans.

Term Life Insurance


Term Life Insurance provides protection for a specified period of time. A death benefit is
paid to the beneficiary if the insured dies within a specified period of time while the
policy is still in force.

Whole Life Insurance


Whole Life insurance is a permanent life insurance and provides protection for life. As
long as premiums are paid, a death benefit is paid to the beneficiary.

ULIPs
A ULIP is a life insurance which provides a combination of Life Insurance protection and
investment. Money can be invested in the following fund:- Equity Fund, Debt Fund,
Money Market Fund (Liquid Fund) and Balance Fund.

Annuities
Annuities are practically the same as pension. Pension provides periodical payments to
the employees, who have retired. They are paid as long as the recipient is alive. Annuities
are called the “reverse” of Life Insurance.

How does this plan work


The premium paid by the client net of premium allocation charges is invested in
fund/funds of your choice and units are allocated depending on the price of units for
the fund/funds. The fund value is the total value of units that you hold in the
fund/funds. The mortality charges and policy administration charges are ducted
through cancellation of units whereas the fund management charge is priced in the
unit value.
Benefits
Life cover Assured: in case of unfortunate loss of life, the beneficiary will get sum
assured or fund value, whichever is higher. The client can choose the basic sum
assured within the minimum and maximum levels mentioned below.

Minimum sum Assured:


• Regular premium: annualized premium for 5 years or annualized premium for
half the policy term, whichever is higher.
• Single premium: 125% of the single premium.

Maximum sum Assured


No limit (50000 for age up to 12 years)

31
Maturity Benefits
On survival to maturity the fund value on maturity will be paid out.
Rider Benefits
The Client can add the Accidental Death & Total and Permanent Disablement Benefit
Rider (available only with the regular premium option).
This benefit doubles the life coverage in case of accidental death or accidental total and
permanent disablement at a very nominal additional cost. The maximum cover is Rs. 50,
00,000 per life.
In case of accidental death of the life assured during the policy term, the accident benefit
sum assured will be paid immediately in a lump sum.
In case of accidental total and permanent disablement, 1/10th of the accident benefit sum
assured will be paid at the end of each year for ten years. If the total and permanent
disablement has commenced, the accidental death benefit cover ceases.
In case of maturity or on death of the life assured before payment of all installments of
accidental total and permanent disablement benefits, the remaining unpaid installments of
any will be paid in one lump sum along with death or maturity benefit.
Accidental total and permanent disablement means disability caused by bodily injury,
which causes permanent inability to perform any occupation or to engage in any activities
for remuneration or profits. This disability should last for at least 6 months before being
eligible for accidental total and permanent disablement benefits.
Accidental total and permanent disablement includes loss of both arms and both legs or
one arm and one leg or of both eyes. Loss of arms or legs means dismemberment by
amputation of the entire hand or foot. Loss of eyes means entire and irrecoverable loss of
sight.

What are the different fund options.

32
We understand the value of your hard earned money and in our Endeavour to help you
grow your wealth, we offer you 4 different tailor-made investment funds. You have the
option to allocate your premium in these funds as you wish.

They are:
1. Capital Secure Fund:
The investment objective of this fund is to maintain the value of all contributions (net of
charges) and all interest additions. This fund offers steady return for little risk. The risk
profile of this fund is low. Investments would be 100% in bank deposits, government
bonds and debt instruments that offer financial security.
Further, allocation in Capital Secure Fund for a policy is subject to a maximum limit of
40% at any time.

2. Balanced Fund:

exceed the rate of inflation in the long term while maintaining a low probability of
negative investment returns. Here, a major portion of your funds are invested in Fixed
Securities while a small percentage is invested in the equity market, which is exposed to
market movements. The risk profile of this fund is low to medium.
Investments would be at least 80% in fixed interest securities and maximum 20% in
equities.

3. Growth Fund:

investment returns in the short term. This fund offers a totally equity based investment
option. Your returns depend entirely upon the performance of the equity market. The risk
profile of this fund is high. The higher risk of this portfolio means that expected returns
would also be higher.

Overview of Demat Account.

38
In India, a Demat account, the abbreviation for dematerialized account, is a type of
banking account which dematerializes paper-based physical stock shares. The
dematerialized account is used to avoid holding physical shares: the shares are bought
and sold through a stock broker.

This account is popular in India. The Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI)
mandates a demat account for share trading above 500 shares. As of April 2006, it
became mandatory that any person holding a demat account should possess a Permanent
Account Number (PAN), and the deadline for submission of PAN details to the
depository lapsed on January 2007.

Procedure

1. Fill demat request form (DRF) (obtained from a depository participant or DP with
whom your depository account is opened).
2. Deface the share certificate(s) you want to dematerialize by writing across Surrendered
for dematerialization.
3. Submit the DRF & share certificate(s) to DP. DP would forward them to the issuer /
their R&T Agent.
4. After dematerialization, your depository account with your DP would be credited with
the dematerialized securities.

Required Documents
The extent of documentation required to open a demat account may vary according to
your relationship with the institution. If you plan to open a demat account with a bank, a
savings, current and, or other account for which the holder have been issued a check
book, such holder has an edge over the non-account holder. In fact, banks usually offer
additional incentives to customers who open a demat account with them. Along with the

43
application form, your photographs (with co-applicants) and proof of
identity/residence/date of birth have to be submitted. The DPs also ask for a DP-client
agreement to be executed on non-judicial stamp paper. Here is a broad list:

• A canceled check, preferably MICR


• Proof of Identification
• Proof of Address
• Proof of Pan card (mandatory)
• Recent photographs, one and, or more

For proof of identification and, or address self-attested facsimile copies of PAN card,
Voter’s ID, Passport, Ration card, Driver’s license, Photo credit card, Employee ID card,

sufficient. While they only ask for photocopies of the documents, they will need the
originals for verification.

Points To Remember
1. Only securities admitted by NSDL can be dematerialized. The list is available
with your DP.
2. Only securities registered in the name of the account holder can be
dematerialized.
3. Dematerialization is normally completed within 15 days after the share
certificates have reached the issuer/ their R&T Agent. Thus it may take you a
month from the date you hand over shares, to receive demat credit.
4. Dematerialization would be done only when the issuer / their R&T Agent is
satisfied of genuineness of securities & ownership status.
5. All the joint holders should sign the DRF.
6. The pattern of holding in the DRF should match the pattern of holding on the
share certificate & the pattern in which account is opened.
7. Demat requests with name(s) not matching exactly with the name(s) appearing on
the certificates merely on account of initials not being spelt out fully or put after

44
or prior to the surname, would be processed, provided the signature(s) of the
client(s) on the DRF tallies with the specimen signature(s) available with the
issuer/ their R & T agent.
8. If the signature in the DRF does not match with the signature available with the
issuer/ their R & T agent, the issuer/ their R & T agent may at the time of demat
confirmation, ask for additional documentation (like bank attestation/ notarisation,
etc.) to prove that the certificate belongs to the person who forwarded the DRF.
9. In case there is any problem in processing the DRF, contact your DP and if he
cannot resolve the problem you may contact NSDL.

The Concept of Mutual Fund


A mutual fund is a common pool of money into which investors place their contributions
that are to be invested in accordance with a stated objective. The ownership of the fund is
thus ‘joint’ and ‘mutual’; the fund belongs to all investors

There are two types of investment in Mutual Funds.
• Lump Sum
• Systematic Investment Plan(SIP)
.

• Lump sum: In Lump sum the investment is only one times that
is of Rs. 5,000. and if the investment is monthly then the investment will be 6,000/-.

• Systematic Investment Plan(SIP) :


We have already mentioned about SIPs in brief in the previous pages but now going into
details, we will see how the power of compounding could benefit us. In such case, every
small amounts invested regularly can grow substantially. SIP gives a clear picture of how
an early and regular investment can help the investor in wealth creation. Due to its
unlimited advantages SIP could be redefined as “a methodology of fund investing
regularly to benefit regularly from the stock market volatility. In the later sections we will
see how returns generated from some of the SIPs have outperformed their benchmark.
But before moving on to that lets have a look at some of the top performing SIPs and
their return for 1 year:

Amoun NAV Total


Scheme t NAV Date Amount
Reliance diversified 30/5/20
power sector retail 1000 62.74 08 14524.07
Reliance regular
22.20 30/5/20 13584.94
savings equity 1000 8 08 4

50
principal global
30/5/20 14247.72
opportunities fund 1000 18.86 08 8
DWS investment
30/5/20 13791.15
opportunities fund 1000 35.31 08 7
30/5/20 13769.15
BOB growth fund 1000 42.14 08 2

In the above chart, we can see how if we start investing Rs.1000 per month then what
return we’ll get for the total investment of Rs. 12000. There is reliance diversified power
sector retail giving the maximum returns of Rs. 2524.07 per year which comes to 21%
roughly. Next we can see if anybody would have undertaken the SIP in Principal would
have got returns of app. 18%. We can see reliance regular savings equity, DWS
investment opportunities and BOB growth fund giving returns of 13.20%, 14.92%, and
14.74% respectively which is greater than any other monthly investment options. Thus
we can easily make out how SIP is beneficial for us. Its hassle free, it forces the investors
to save and get them into the habit of saving. Also paying a small amount of Rs. 1000 is
easy and convenient for them, thus putting no pressure on their pockets.
Now we will analyze some of the equity fund SIP s of Birla Sunlife with BSE 200 and
bank fixed deposits In a tabular format as well as graphical.

Exposure of Mutual Funds Companies in India

The concept of mutual funds in India dates back to the year 1963. The era between 1963
and 1987 marked the existence of only one mutual fund company in India with Rs. 67bn
assets under management (AUM), by the end of its monopoly era, the Unit Trust of India
(UTI). By the end of the 80s decade, few other mutual fund companies in India took their
position in mutual fund market.
The new entries of mutual fund companies in India were SBI Mutual Fund, Canbank
Mutual Fund, Punjab National Bank Mutual Fund, Indian Bank Mutual Fund, Bank of
India Mutual Fund.
The succeeding decade showed a new horizon in Indian mutual fund industry. By the end
of 1993, the total AUM of the industry was Rs. 470.04 bn. The private sector funds

51
started penetrating the fund families. In the same year the first Mutual Fund Regulations
came into existence with re-registering all mutual funds except UTI. The regulations were
further given a revised shape in 1996.
Kothari Pioneer was the first private sector mutual fund company in India which has now
merged with Franklin Templeton. Just after ten years with private sector players
penetration, the total assets rose up to Rs. 1218.05 bn. Today there are 33 mutual fund
companies in India in which some are as below.

• ABN AMRO Mutual Funds


• Birla Sun life mutual Funds
• Bank of Baroda Mutual Fund
• HDFC Mutual Fund
• HSBC Mutual Fund
• ING Vysya Mutual Fund

Working of a Mutual Fund

Terms and conditions


• This facility offered only to the investors having bank accounts in selected cities
which are specific in the form of the SIP.
• Submit the following document at least 21 working days before the first SIP date
for ECS (Electronic clearing Service).
• The first SIP cheque should be issued from the same bank account which is to be
debited under ECS for subsequent installments.
• The bank account provided for ECS (Debit) should participate in local MICR
clearing.
• SIP auto debit facility is available only on specific dates of the month i.e. 2nd or
10th or 18th or 28th.
• The investor agrees to abide by the terms and conditions of ECS facility of
Reserve bank of India.
• An investor can opt for monthly or quarterly frequency.
• Only one SIP per month or per quarter is permitted per folio/account.

53
• Minimum investment amount – monthly SIP option – 60 installments of Rs. 100/-
each or 12 installment or Rs. 500/- each or 6 installments of Rs. 1000/- each and
in multiples of Re.1/- thereafter.
• The gap between the 1st cheque/ installment & the 2nd cheque / installment should
be at least 21working days. However subsequent cheques should have a gap of at
least a month or a quarter depending upon the frequency chosen.

Advantages of Mutual Funds

• Diversification: The best mutual funds design their portfolios so individual


investments will react differently to the same economic conditions. For example,
economic conditions like a rise in interest rates may cause certain securities in a
diversified portfolio to decrease in value. Other securities in the portfolio will
respond to the same economic conditions by increasing in value. When a portfolio
is balanced in this way, the value of the overall portfolio should gradually increase
over time, even if some securities lose value.

• Professional Management: Most mutual funds pay topflight professionals to


manage their investments. These managers decide what securities the fund will
buy and sell.

• Regulatory oversight: Mutual funds are subject to many government regulations


that protect investors from fraud.

• Liquidity: It's easy to get your money out of a mutual fund. Write a check, make a
call, and you've got the cash.

• Convenience: You can usually buy mutual fund shares by mail, phone, or over the
Internet.

• Low cost: Mutual fund expenses are often no more than 1.5 percent of your
investment. Expenses for Index Funds are less than that, because index funds are

54
not actively managed. Instead, they automatically buy stock in companies that are
listed on a specific index

• Transparency

• Flexibility

• Choice of schemes

• Tax benefits

• Well regulated

Drawbacks of Mutual Funds

Mutual funds have their drawbacks and may not be for everyone:

• No Guarantees: No investment is risk free. If the entire stock market declines in


value, the value of mutual fund shares will go down as well, no matter how
balanced the portfolio. Investors encounter fewer risks when they invest in mutual
funds than when they buy and sell stocks on their own. However, anyone who
invests through a mutual fund runs the risk of losing money.

• Fees and commissions: All funds charge administrative fees to cover their day-
to-day expenses. Some funds also charge sales commissions or "loads" to
compensate brokers, financial consultants, or financial planners. Even if you don't
use a broker or other financial adviser, you will pay a sales commission if you buy
shares in a Load Fund.

• Taxes: During a typical year, most actively managed mutual funds sell anywhere
from 20 to 70 percent of the securities in their portfolios. If your fund makes a
profit on its sales, you will pay taxes on the income you receive, even if you
reinvest the money you made.

• Management risk: When you invest in a mutual fund, you depend on the fund's
manager to make the right decisions regarding the fund's portfolio. If the manager

55
does not perform as well as you had hoped, you might not make as much money
on your investment as you expected. Of course, if you invest in Index Funds, you
forego management risk, because these funds do not employ managers

called Risks
• Insurance is the SCIENCE OF SPREADING OF THE RISK. It is the system of
spreading the losses of an Individual over a group of Individuals
• Insurance is a Method of sharing of financial losses of a FEW from a COMMON
FUND formed out of Contribution of the MANY who are equally exposed to the
same loss

Markets

In tune with the global stock markets that began to recover from the second half of 2003;
Indian stock markets too witnessed rapid growth. India’s two leading indices, the most
popular BSE Sensex, and the one most used by the markets the National Stock
Exchanges’ S&P CNX Nifty rose to record levels. Both primary and secondary market
activity experienced sharp surge. Much progress was made in further strengthening and
streamlining risk management, market regulation and supervision. A few aspects of the
major developments in the India’s stock markets are described below. And the insurance
sector is also play an important role in the growth of the financial market.

Market Structure

Indian securities market is fairly large as compared to several other emerging markets.
There are 22 stock exchanges in the country, though the entire liquidity is shared
between the countries’s two national level exchanges namely, the National Stock
Exchange of India and the Bombay Stock Exchange Ltd. The regional stock exchanges
are in pursuit of business models that make them viable and vibrant. Meanwhile, these
exchanges have become members of the national level exchanges through formation of
subsidiaries whose business is showing continuous growth and progress.

The number of brokers in various stock exchanges rose from 6,711 in 1994-95 to 9,335
in FY06. The number of brokers in all the exchanges together peaked to 10,213 in the
year FY01 but gradually declined thereafter when the regional stock exchanges began to
lose business in the light of wide ranging market structure reforms introduced since then.

62
In FY01, when the markets were in upswing, several regional stock exchanges were
generating business owing to the availability of deferral products, such Badla and
different settlement calendars prevailing at that time in these exchanges. For instance in
FY01, the Delhi Stock Exchange registered cash market turnover of Rs 838.71 bn; Uttar
Pradesh Stock Exchange, Rs 247.47 bn, Ludhiana Stock Exchange Rs 97.32 bn, Pune
Stock Exchange Rs 61.71 bn as against Rs 13,395.11 bn of the turnover at the National
Stock Exchange and Rs 10,000.32 bn turnover at the Bombay Stock Exchange. With the
abolition of the deferral products and introduction of uniform T+2 settlement cycle, the
liquidity in these exchanges flowed to the national level system consisting of NSE and
BSE.

The most vital problem spotted is of ignorance. Investors should be made aware of the
benefits. Nobody will invest until and unless he is fully convinced. Investors should be
made to realize that ignorance is no longer bliss and what they are losing by not
investing.
Mutual funds offer a lot of benefit which no other single option could offer. But most of
the people are not even aware of what actually a mutual fund is? They only see it as just
another investment option. So the advisors should try to change their mindsets. The
advisors should target for more and more young investors. Young investors as well as
persons at the height of their career would like to go for advisors due to lack of expertise
and time.
The advisors may try to highlight some of the value added benefits of Mutual funds such
as tax benefit, rupee cost averaging, and systematic transfer plan, rebalancing etc. these
benefits are not offered by other options single-handedly. So these are enough to drive the
investors towards mutual funds. Investors could also try to increase the spectrum of
services offered.
Now the most important reason for not availing the services of advisors was spotted was
being expensive. The advisors should try to charge a nominal fee at the beginning. But if
not possible then they could go for offering more services and benefits at the existing
rate. They should also maintain their decency and follow the code of ethics so that the

investors could trust upon them. Thus the advisors should try to attract more and more
persons and turn them into investors and finally their clients.

With the globalize economy and immense competition among countries for faster
development of their respective economies, the significance of Insurance, Mutual Funds
and Foreign investment has taken manifold. With a buoyant vibrant and experienced
stock market, India today is looking ahead to surpass China in terms of foreign
Investment and growth prospects. Stock exchange being the barometer of the economy
plays a vital role in showcasing growth of an economy and luring investment. While
studying the role of Insurance, Mutual fund and FIIs in Stock Market, I discussed with a
few persons who are into stock broking business. And the information they have provided
shows that though the investment and participation of domestic investors are rising, still,
they have not been able to prove themselves to be as influential as Insurance, mutual
funds and FIIs.

Importance and the role of Insurance, Mutual funds and FIIs play in the Indian stock
market can be seen from the fact that the recent surge in Sensex and NIFTY is attributed
to the active participation of FIIs in the Stock Market. Despite being aware of the Asian
economic crisis where FIIs role was of a major concern, the importance of foreign capital
in the development of economy can not be undermined in anyway.
