Name : Asish Ray
Name of the company : IDFC Mutual fund
I was working with IDFC Mutual Fund in my summer internship. My interaction with my project guide was in a corporate manner. He was helpful in every aspect and made us understood any such problem we faced in this two months of our internship.
My clients were the bank officials of the Axis Bank branches in North Kolkata. I had to visit the Branch Manager, Relationship Managers, FDOs, etc. They were busy but were generous enough to know about me, ask about the mutual fund schemes which were handled by me and the role I was playing in the company.
My work was to collect SIPs (Systematic Investment Plan) from the bank branches I was allotted by convincing the bank officials to suggest their customers to enrol with our mutual fund.
I learnt that what marketing actually means and how people actually manage this. I came to know about a new area of banking (i.e. Mutual Funds) as it is a vital distribution channel for mutual funds and how to co-operate in an office environment.
Overall it was a learning experience which will help me in my coming future.
