Aptech Certified Banking Specialist
Do you have a bank account? or a credit card? Have you ever withdrawn cash from an ATM?
If yes, then you know a little of what a bank does. But there’s so much more! Banks and associated firms or financial institutions lend and borrow money, manage people’s investments, buy and sell shares in the share market, provide seed money for businesses, run ATMs, and much, much more.
As per the Reserve Bank of India, India currently has 26 public sector banks, 20 service sector banks, 43 foreign banks, 61 regional rural banks, and 90,000+ credit cooperatives. All these banks have multiple branches and ATMs and other service centres in thousands of cities across the country. Each branch needs well-trained banking professionals to drive investments & manage their money.
To manage all these functions, banks need well-trained professionals who know the value of money and are smart enough to invest it wisely. According to a KPMG research report, the banking & financial services industry will create 20 lakh new jobs over the next 5 years.
