Finance professionals like investment bankers and analysts are the highest paid executives in the World. Investment bankers and fund managers are the ones who give investors an extremely high return on their investment in a short period of time. They are able to help companies and investors book profits on a daily basis.
It is due to this ability of investment bankers, research analysts and fund managers that investors/ fund houses are willing to pay them a salary plus a percentage of the profits! This amounts to millions of Dollars for even an average analyst.
It is not easy to get placed in an Investment Bank or any major financial institution without having the right qualification, knowledge or the discipline. The reason is a single trade could be worth a few hundred crores and the lack of sound judgement could result in the organization losing all of that money in a split second. It is of utmost importance that students learn their trade from the right institution.
All students are shortlisted for the course will be on the basis of a written test and a personal interview which is conducted by the BSE Institute Limited.
