I first learnt about Avendus back in 2008 while I was with IDFC Private Equity. A senior team member had recommended that I should meet Avendus and explore a possible stint.
Avendus has a fantastic brand name and market reputation. The general market feedback is always positive on Avendus.
I am a Chartered Accountant with prior experience with prestigious institutions such as Price Waterhouse, IDFC Private Equity and India Alternatives. With buy side experience, I perceived myself as a good fit in the growing asset management business that Avendus was focussing on. Moreover, having prior experience with Venture Capital Funds and Alternative Investment Funds (Cat 1 and 2), I wanted to experience working with a Category 3 AIF.
Avendus provides a solid platform for skills development. It brings the best out of you. The Ocean Dial team is fantastic. The pace is fast and the expectations are high. It is a challenging environment that brings the best out of me. Moreover, the overall support provided by the central finance team is commendable. Requests are met with timely responses.
Avendus is a fantastic organisation from a long term career prospect. It carries fantastic brand name, cares for its employees.
