 As a part of the ideology to infuse industry experience with academics and to facilitate more interactions with the corporate world, SSBF took pleasure in inviting Mr. Vijay Narsimhan from HDFC AMC on 22 August to the campus to deliver a guest lecture to the students. Mr. Narsimhan started off by introducing the students to HDFC Bank and its financial arms viz., HDFC Life, HDFC Ergo etc., while focusing majorly on HDFC Mutual Fund. 

Taking the session ahead, he elaborated on what Mutual Funds are. Mutual Fund companies take money from various investors across the country and from abroad and invest them in various equities to provide a healthy rate of return to the investors. Secondly, the reason to choose Mutual Funds over Fixed deposits, Foreign Exchange and Gold is that Mutual funds provide a higher rate of return that is compounded yearly which is much more than what investments in FDs, FOREX and other commodities offer.

On compound interest, he quoted Albert Einstein.: ‘Compound interest is the eighth wonder of the world. He, who understands it, earns it; he, who doesn't, pays it.’

Mr. Narsimhan pointed out that inflation is prevalent all over the world, which eats into the purchasing power of one's savings. He mentioned that in 1985 the price of petrol was Rs. 8.5 and a few months ago, this year it touched Rs.80. For instance, if an investment of Rs. 10,000 was made in the stock of Wipro in 1981 then, today it would have amounted to Rs. 500 crores. So it is very important to invest one's money carefully so as to not lose out on its purchasing power.

There are two main factors driving the market. They are the sentiments of the investors at the first level and the technical trend-based movements at the deeper level. But, ultimately the fundamentals of the company determine its value. So, in a market an investor sells his stock today with an expectation that the prices will go down in the near future, while the buyer makes an investment expecting a rise in the prices. Finally, at the end of the day one of them will be proven wrong. Hence, in order to protect one from such risks and to meet the future needs it is essential to have a Systematic Investment Plan (SIP), so that inflation and negative factors in the market don’t affect the overall financial health of an Individual.

The session brought clarity in the understanding of Mutual Funds among the students and also provided a broad perspective about the bank and its financial arms.
