Which ABG company would you want to work for and why?
I would like to work for Aditya Birla Sun Life Mutual Fund because I’ve always been interested in equities since a young age. However, I’ve recently started trading and investing in stocks. I am aware of Fundamental and Technical analysis and take Buy and Sell calls by analyzing the Technical charts, I am confident of developing better skills-sets as I complete my course at IIM Raipur which would eventually help me in becoming a good Fund Manager in the future. My interest in working for ABG is not because of my interest for Equities, it is also because ABG is one of the biggest conglomerates in the country with business in almost all industry sectors and I’d be proud to be a part of ABG.
