After guarding India’s borders for 27 years
and risking his life for the country,
senior retired Army officer Col. Rajinder Handa,
75, our Founder and Chairman, forayed into
the field of stock broking in 1993, founding
CSB (Col's Stock Broking House), then known as
SIC (Service Investment Center).
We are the brainchild of Col. Handa who founded CSB as a sub- broker under the name of SIC in Bangalore in 1993 after giving the Indian Army 27 faithful and loyal years. The year of our birth- 1993
Starting out as a sub-broker under the name of SIC in 1993 in Bangalore, we have come a long way in the past two decades. Over the years, SIC has gained widespread presence across the country, earning access to membership of the country’s top stock exchanges and diversifying into a range of financial solutions to offer our clients the best financial advice and products tailor-made to their needs. We are present in Bangalore, Mumbai, Whitefield, Ahmadabad, New Mumbai, and currently have 50 employees in our team.
By founding CSB, Col. Handa has claimed the honour of being the only person from an Army background to have earned a membership in the country’s leading stock and clearing exchanges including the NSE, BSE, BgSE and CDSL, showing his tremendous entrepreneurship, leadership and innovation skills, which have helped him make a mark in a field that had been unexplored by any Army or Defence person before."

At CSB, we are driven by the intent to create wealth for our investors. But, wealth creation is easier said than done. More than ever before, the last few years of equity market rollercoaster have shown the transient and unpredictable trait of equity markets globally. But, equities also present an unparalleled opportunity to create long-term wealth, as the celebrated example of the world’s most successful investor-ever, Warren Buffett, shows.
Investing in equity can pull higher returns than any other form of investment, provided they are wisely chosen and retained. Equity acts as a hedge against inflation, helps create long-term wealth, and offers liquidity and diversification across asset classes.Better known as the Father of Value Investing, Benjamin Graham once said,
These two rules are deeply imbibed in CSB by its founder and a senior retired Army officer Col. Rajinder Handa. He has the honour of being the only person from an Army background to have earned a membership in the country’s leading stock and clearing exchanges.
Led by the core values of Indian army namely discipline, transparency and integrity, CSB has formed lasting relationships with its clients, enabling them to profit from market opportunities, by ‘sweating’ their hard-earned money. CSB extends proven online trading know-how, honed over years of its operations, spanning various exchanges and market segments through a native platform.
With senior retired Army Officer Col. Rajinder Handa as CSB’s Founder and Chairman, trust is deeply embedded into how we conduct our business and transaction with valued clients. As a result, word of mouth recommendation from our existing clients remains the most frequent (and preferred) way of growing our clientele.
With over 22 years of experience in the capital markets, CSB is among India’s leading financial services institutions with well-established domestic and global operations. We take a unique Boutique Approach to investing, where our clients get the personalized attention and care that only a smaller financial services house can provide, BUT, with the market experience, presence, and infrastructure comparable to that of larger financial services entities.
Consistent with the belief that bigger does not necessarily mean better and every investor has unique needs, we are focused on value, not cost. In line with this belief, CSB offers customized brokerage plans and allows you to choose a plan that fits your trading style, pattern, and investing needs.
CSB assures you complete control over your need to scrutinize thorough information, gauge investing schemes, keep an eye on your investments, allot portfolios and have quick online access to your trading reports anytime, anywhere.
When a company issues equity to the public for the first time, it is called an Initial Public Offer (IPO). Quite understandably, the decision to invest or not can be very tricky for an investor due to lack of historical information on the company, and its future growth prospects.
This is where CSB steps in with its cutting-edge research and analysis that helps you choose the right company with the apt fundamentals. The main source of information in IPOs is the Red Herring Prospectus, which is thoroughly examined by CSB’s research team and special attention is paid to the management team and its plan to use the funds generated from the IPO.
In addition, CSB has developed a proprietary analytical framework, the IPO Money Meter, to estimate and forecast the money-making potential of an IPO- on listing, and in the medium and long term. This unique framework has been tested and refined over the years, significantly enhancing its accuracy, and has generated extraordinary returns for thousands of investors.
Buying a mutual fund is like buying a small slice of a pizza. The owner of a mutual fund unit gets a proportional share of the fund’s gains, losses, income and expenses. Generally, mutual funds are acknowledged as an investment option providing low risk and moderate returns. Mutual Funds are liquid in nature and are easy to sell. They are registered with SEBI and hence, well-regulated.
Mutual funds offer a wide bouquet of investment options to investors – equity schemes, fixed income schemes, money market schemes, hybrid schemes, Exchange Traded Funds (ETF) etc. But, this choice, running into hundreds of mutual fund schemes in each category, can be mindboggling. Investors want to spend the least time, experience zero hassle, and generate relatively secure returns when they are investing through mutual funds.
Acknowledging this need, at CSB, we take an approach to mutual fund investing, which is unique in three ways. One, it is customized to the risk appetite and investment needs of the investor. Two, our experienced analysts are continuously identifying hidden, below-the-radar investment opportunities which can provide higher returns. And, three, we evaluate mutual funds going beyond the conventional metrics of NAV-based total returns to provide a 360-degree view of fund performance.
High Profits @ Low Cost: At CSB, we always have our eye on the ball.
Currency has progressed into an unfailing asset class due to its deep liquidity, relatively low volatility and low-cost per trade. It is a unique product and helps in hedging the portfolio against the future risk. At the same time, derivatives are used constructively for arbitrage and speculation too.
