Which ABG company would you want to work for and why?

I would like to work for Aditya Birla Capital Limited. The main motivation is that I have completed my CFA and would like to work in the financial services domain and give me exposure to Asset Management, Insurance and Private Equity. This would provide me with an opportunity to grow in a diverse field of finance and will help me expand my knowledge base.
