Mr. Navin Suri, Vice President & Director (Sales & Distribution), ING Investment Management India, said, “ING Investment Management has strengthened its retail operations in Tamil Nadu by opening a full service branch at Madurai, a tourism centre, which has tremendous market potential due to its proximity to lot of religious places. The high literacy rate of Madurai makes it an attractive proposition for educating the prospective investors about global investment solution as a diversification tool. We plan to kick-start various educational initiatives to create awareness about financial planning. The Indian MF industry's total AUM could grow at around 33% year-on-year from $92 billion in March 2007 to $350-$440 billion by 2012. To achieve this, penetration to tier II & III cities will be necessary for every player.”
The opening of the new branch office at Madurai is an integral part of the Company’s strategy to continue to invest in infrastructure and reach to regional commercial centres and reach out to a wider group of retail customers and deliver better access to distributors. This branch follows the time honored and proven strategy of getting closer to the customer to understand them better.
