Watching sports and spending time with my family
Being a financial analyst, I always read about Avendus. The growth that the firm has experienced backed by the KKR investment, made me believe that firm is on the road to creating a large and unique financial services platform. One thing that I always look for in a company is its knowledge bank - Avendus has this in plenty.
I joined Avendus in November 2016 in the newly incubated Alternate Asset Management team. We have gone from strength to strength to become one of the largest domestic AIF CAT 3 funds in the country. It has been a wonderful and exhilarating journey through which we have managed to deliver committed returns in FY 18. I am looking forward to scaling new heights as a part of the team.
My role in the team involves conducting in-depth analysis of stocks and sectors to share inputs with our fund management team. The fund managers use these inputs to make investment decisions.
Avendus has a conducive work environment which includes empowering employees and giving you the platform to explore your potential. I have experienced this first hand when I was tasked to develop a differentiated fund offering. My team and I developed an Enhanced Return Product (based on an inhouse fundamental screener) within 6 months. This product was a first of its kind in the market and has received a very positive response from investors and distributors.
One thing that best describes the culture at Avendus is its “cohesive” work environment. The firm promotes a One Avendus culture and encourages cross vertical teams to deliver value adding solutions to clients. The successful partnership between the Alternate Asset Management and the Wealth Management team is a great example of us living the One Avendus mantra.
If you are passionate about a challenging yet transparent and open work environment, then Avendus is a place you should consider. It not only gives you an opportunity to learn new things but also allows you to work independently.
When I am not at work, I love watching sports and spending time with my family
