A striving entrepreneur Mr. Goenka says, “ You need to be extremely clear on your goals and work towards them diligently every single minute of your life. Your rational and subconscious mind should constantly seek your goal and your thoughts should be extremely clear and forever positive. Your success depends on your thoughts and how passionate you are towards your business or your goals that should certainly have a higher purpose otherwise you’ll tend to quit, like any rational person, during crises. Be empathetic towards your employees and your clients and keep the wheel running .Never quit no matter how hard you get hit. Success will follow.
Implementing an Innovative Approach with Skilled Team
IFA global believes that every client is unique and therefore requires bespoke solutions. Rather than plain vanilla FX advisory, where you just advise clients on where to buy, sell or hold, their approach is slightly different. On engaging with a client, they understand the clients’ business model, costing methodologies, cash flow cycle, funding requirements. Based on their analysis of these parameters, they gauge a client’s risk appetite and insist upon developing a succinct risk management policy articulating hedge ratio, hedging instruments, hedging strategies, etc. and then managing the client’s portfolio in accordance with their risk appetite and industry.
IFA Global’s quality of team, continuous strive towards excellence , their brand and wide presence across 40 cities in India and international presence in UAE and Hong Kong differentiates them from other local consultants. A constant focus towards technology driven delivery systems, getting the best talent on board and a constant strive towards newer markets adds to the USP of the firm.
Highly Specialized in FX
While throwing light on the future, Mr. Goenka shares, “It has been a fabulous journey over the last decade, but I still believe that this is just the beginning as the possibilities are virtually endless especially the domain we are in. With FX markets evolving in India, unprecedented volatility in the global markets, challenges faced by businesses in fundraising, I believe there is tremendous scope to grow horizontally as well as vertically.”
FX is a highly specialized domain and needs a strong track record of the advisor and manager. Mismanagement of FX exposure and over-leveraging can prove to be very costly for any business. That is where IFA Global steps in and ensures that all the treasury related functions of the client are managed optimally at all times.
