The versatile Michael Douglas who at age 71 knows a thing or two about scripting success stories, could well be speaking of the Indian economy. There is indeed little to doubt the septuagenarian thespian’s incisive words, for true financial success comes to those who learn to pave the road to success with generous amounts of integrity. Those who fail to do so, usually end up losing credibility, and biting the dust.

Integrity has been the foundation on which SMC has built its reputation and profile. Both, Mr S.C. Aggarwal, Chairman and Managing Director, and Mr Mahesh C Gupta, Vice Chairman and Managing Director, of the SMC Group unequivocally believe that that the triad of “honesty, transparency and fairness has helped SMC grow into one of the leading players in the industry.”


Success has come accompanied by its close friends—accolades, awards and appreciation. The duo’s exceptional leadership and outstanding commitment has made SMC Group one of the reputed and award-winning financial solutions providers in the country. In the year 2015, SMC has been conferred upon with the ‘Best Financial Services Provider’ and the ‘Best Real Estate Broker of the Year’ awards by ASSOCHAM. In the year 2014, SMC was awarded the ‘Commodity Broker of the year’. It bagged the much coveted ‘Best Equity Broking house in Derivative Segment in India’ for 3 consecutive years between 2012 and 2014, awarded by Dun and Bradstreet and BSE jointly. SMC had earlier won the Best Equity Broking House in India (2012 and 2010) and Best Currency Broking House in India (2012 and 2010) awards by D&B, BSE and Bloomberg-UTV respectively.
