CRISIL – Global Research & Analytics
CRISIL Global Research & Analytics (GR&A) is a client-oriented, multi-faceted business unit. It caters to most of the financial requirements of investment bank clients and has flavours of equity research, fixed income, derivatives, and more. Working for CRISIL GR&A provides exposure to global scenarios and gives one a comprehensive view of global financial trends.
However, it’s not an easy ride. Many challenges have to be tackled every day. Because we are providing a service, the work tends to be varied. However, the scope to learn is great and you can pick up new skill sets with every assignment. I am part of the equity research team and work on the Utilities sector. It’s been a valuable learning experience.
The courses offered during the course of CCAP may not always overlap with what you’re working on, but at the same time, the knowledge you get out of the courses does give you a healthy perspective. After completing CCAP, the growth prospects in GR&A are good. The company recognizes and rewards hard work and diligence.
