Since graduation, I have been inclined towards finance. After completing a Bachelor’s degree in finance, I was the only one of 85 graduates to be selected for the investment banking team at Edelweiss Capital, one of India’s leading financial services organisations. I was a member of the business development team, and introduced numerous companies in the healthcare and infrastructure sectors looking for fund-raising opportunities to Edelweiss. I also executed many large deals in the Indian capital markets, including initial public offerings, private equity and qualified institutional placements. I chose HKU because of its reputation, close ties with and proximity to the financial job market, and its strategic location in one of the most vibrant and international cities in the world. I am already benefiting from the class diversity …  where else can you study and interact with people of more than 20 nationalities? It is an amazing experience! In addition, the Finance Club will help me to leverage my connections in the industry and provide me with access to an immense network of prominent business professionals in Hong Kong, thereby helping to further my career.
