In the '90s there has been a decisive shift towards a new wave, the domain of financial services. In the era of the consumer, financial services, which seek to put the consumer in the forefront, have come to stay. Skillful marketing has opened up a wide spectrum of areas where financial services find their presence today.
The financial institutions and instruments constitute the hard core of the financial system. Financial services on the other hand represent the software portion of the financial environment. They represent all kinds of services provided in financial terms, where the essential commodity is money viz., leasing, hire-purchase, consumer credit, investment banking, commercial banking, venture capital, insurance, credit rating, bill discounting, mutual funds, stock broking, housing finance and factoring.
The growth in financial services sector has also led to the popularization of credit cards. Consumerism has firmly established itself in our country today. The financial services market scene is heating up. The Asian giants China and India have become exciting dynamic markets. The Indian Financial Service Providers (FSPs) pose a major challenge. The sector, it is said, is projected to undergo a major transformation in the coming decade.
Competition has increased within the traditional financial centers, amongst the players themselves, through the shared objectives to chase retail deposits, prime corporates and high net worth customers through the provision of a universal range of services. The rules for entry of foreign companies into financial services have been considerably liberalized and it has become easy for global majors to make entry into India. Today, traditional retailers and supermarkets affinity groups are providing financial services; traditional FSPs are providing retail services through e-commerce links.
It is indeed, a challenge for the traditional financial services players in their present structure to continue to survive by the end of the decade or even through the next five years.
