Client Testimonials

Mr. Vijay Agarwal

- Chairman, Creative Textile Mills Pvt Ltd, Mumbai

We have been associated with IFA Global for 4 years now. I can only tell that they have taken away a lot of my burden from foreign exchange. Previously, whenever I used to do; half of my time would go into analysing whether the market will go up or down. Now I am free, these guys are taking care of it very well. Transparent, Honest and Hard Working, can’t get better than this.


Mr. Vanjinath

- Managing Director, Cotton Concepts Pvt Ltd , Coimbatore

I have been associated with IFA Global for few years and have got great service so far. I am filled with a lot of information which helps me in the industry. The team has been professional and helped me in every single bit to understand how the market works. Especially when we deal with our own business, we do not understand the nuances of how the forex market works. The team has really broken down every single thing that is required when it comes to how the market performs or how we could utilise the benefits of forex in our business.

Right from bringing down my bank interest rates to negotiating with banks in terms of all conversions & rates; everywhere they have given me benefits in business. And, that is where I see them add value. I would recommend IFA Global for all their support.


Mr. Senthil Kumar

- Chairman, BKS Textiles Pvt Ltd, Coimbatore

Since the last few years, frankly speaking we have forgotten what we are supposed to do about our foreign currency transactions. We have left everything to IFA Global. We are comfortable and can devote our time to other things. We also feel by large we have made reasonable profits on FX transactions. Service wise, it has been a very good experience. Without asking, we have received the right advice at the right time so that we can remain in our business as competitive as we can. Happy with their services and would like to add & avail more services like Treasury Audit etc.


Mr. Shailesh  Shah

- Executive Director, Sonic Biochem Extractions Ltd, Indore

We have been associated with IFA Global for more than 5 years. We are exporters and happy to inform that every morning we talk on business and we are able to make good decisions on Forex. We have good relationship with the firm and the people of the firm. Able to discuss and share our business as well as personal issues. People in the firm are excellent at large.

Mr. Nilesh Shah

- Kotak Asset Management

It’s a pleasure to come and meet corporates at Treasury Elite and discuss ideas. It broadly represents views of different parts of the markets. Hopefully through this interaction everyone gets more enriched and go back more knowledgeable to face the volatility of the market.


Mr. Shailesh Haribhakti

- Baker Tilly DHC Pvt Ltd

I was very pleased at the way the panel was structured. People come from completely different parts of the Indian financial system and all of these people coming together and being moderated by an experienced anchor. Made the panel discussions so very very perfect. I think you should stay on course and I think what you need to do is to make sure that the key takeaways are actually strung together in an extremely short notes if you like feedback to the participants, to the panellist and to your entire membership which is what might help. Also, if you can do a YouTube video which will bring together the key thoughts during the entire discussion and just upload it, you might be able to get a whole lot of inputs for future.


Mr. T Venkatesan

- Tata Consultancy Service

It's a very good event, especially from the market side, we were able to meet a lot of people, exchanging of the market information on what is driving an Indian economy and especially the topic of changing landscape for Indian corporates. A lot of things were discussed and probably the focus was more on the technology, how the technology can help the corporates, as internal organisation, even the individual corporates to move ahead in next 5-10 years, along with the technology we also need to ensure that the cyber security also put foot along with the technology adoption. So I hope all the people, the participants have in their minds and all the best to all the participants.


Mr. Raamdeo Agrawal

- Motilal Oswal

It is a wonderful experience. You have so many people coming here, and actually I was more impressed with the panel we have. I think the effort you are doing is so wonderful. The only thing is, we have to keep it up. I mean these are the things when your one or two programmes are not up to the mark, then it loses the followers, so you keep rising this thing. I am quite sure there are not so many platforms like this which is professionally managed. There are a lot of associations and all but here it's done by some individual and you can always contact most of the professionals and they would love to come here. I am sure as financial markets are rising, they are becoming bigger in size. These things will become far more important and the real thing is whether the members are benefited or not. I mean what are the takeaways by them because they will spend their evening and I got something from other panellists and you have to ask your friends they have found it well or not.


Mr. Navneet Munot

- Chief Investment Officer- SBI Mutual Fund

Since we are in MCA Ground, I would say perfect match and very enjoyable. I think the quality of interaction, the level of participation, the kind of questions during the panel discussions, the kind of moderator Harsha is, and later on I think the participation from each of the participants was very interesting and actually enjoyed it.


Mr. Nishith Desai

- Lawyer- Nishith Desai Associates

I think this Elite was really an elite program, I thoroughly enjoyed sharing my experience. I am not teaching anybody but I think we had a great conversation and I think this is the kind of thing that really brings about a change. We discussed all, we had a great panellists around and I was very privileged to have several of them with me.


Mr. Rashesh Shah

- CEO & Chairman- Edelweiss Group

I was really very excited to know about Treasury Elite and especially the slogan that Treasury Elite has, which is, it's a knowledge sharing network. And I think it is now one of the most important things we need to share all the knowledge we have with each other and the more we share, the more it grows collectively for all of us.


Mr. Ridham Desai

- Managing Director- Morgan Stanley Group

Treasury Elite maximizes the knowledge sharing network and today’s program was really a knowledge-sharing event. The exchange of views and the knowledge that we shared with everyone here was certainly something to remember.


Mr. Madhusudhan Kela

- Chief Investment Strategist- Reliance Capital

I think this is a very good experience, it was conducted in a very professional manner. The participation was from a wide ranging audience, people from corporate sectors, bankers, people from markets and I actually enjoyed it and I think it is a long way to go.


Dr. Ajit Ranade

- Chief Economist- Aditya Birla Group

I am very happy to have an interaction today, very creative and really stimulating discussion today, and we covered a lot of topics including domestic and global. So I am quite happy and the turnout was quite impressive considering the weather.
