What did you do before you joined SIB?I am a Chartered Accountant and was working with PwC in the Auditing department for 4 years before I made a decision to switch from Accounting & Auditing to the world of Investment Banking and Equity Research.
How did you decide to join SIB's full time investment banking course?When I decided to switch to Investment banking, I opted for CFA. I completed 2 levels when I started looking for some practical experience. This is when a friend of mine who also happened to do the SIB’s course told me to have a look at their website and course curriculum. So I did that, spoke to the team at SIB and was convinced that I should be doing this course.
Do you feel you took the right decision by joining SIB?Certainly. While doing my CFA, I was only getting book based knowledge but had no practical experience on how to build financial models or how valuations work. At SIB, you get hands on experience on financial modeling, how valuations work in real life and there is plenty of practice which really helps someone like me who isn’t from an Investment Banking background. This really helps later on when you get placed in a company.
What was the best part of training at SIB?The best part of training with SIB is the recruiter group they have, all top notch dream companies for any one who aspires to be an investment banker. Rigorous interview practice happens during the course. The faculty at SIB are really professional and have practical experience having worked at top MNCs themselves.
