Higher Studies & Career Avenues

Wealth Manager: Professionals who work directly with clients and high-net-worth individuals to understand their financial goals and develop personalised investment strategies. They typically provide advice on investment portfolios, retirement planning, tax strategies, and estate planning.

Investment Analyst: Investment analysts research financial markets, companies, and industries to provide recommendations on investment opportunities. They analyse financial data, assess risks, and make informed investment decisions. As per the direction of the Securities Exchange Board of India, those who are qualified CWM can work as independent advisors which helps you build your career.

Portfolio Manager: Portfolio managers oversee investment portfolios on behalf of clients or institutions. They make investment decisions to maximise returns while managing risk within defined investment objectives.

Private Banker: Private bankers work with high-net-worth individuals and families to manage their financial affairs. They offer personalised banking, investment, and wealth management services tailored to the client’s needs.

Financial Planner: Financial planners help clients develop comprehensive financial plans to achieve their long-term financial goals. They assess a client’s financial situation and recommend strategies for budgeting, saving, investing, and retirement planning.

Estate Planner: Estate planners specialise in helping clients plan the distribution of their assets upon death to minimise taxes and ensure their wishes are carried out. They may work closely with attorneys and financial advisors to create estate plans.

Risk Manager: Risk managers identify and assess potential risks to a client’s financial well-being, such as market volatility, geopolitical events, or regulatory changes. They develop strategies to mitigate these risks and protect the client’s assets.

Compliance Officer: Compliance officers ensure that wealth management firms comply with relevant laws, regulations, and industry standards. They develop and implement policies and procedures to prevent financial misconduct and protect clients’ interests.

Wealth Management Consultant: Consultants provide advisory services to wealth management firms on various aspects of their business, such as strategy development, technology implementation, and operational efficiency.

Alternative Investments Specialist: These professionals focus on non-traditional investment opportunities such as private equity, hedge funds, real estate, and commodities. They analyse alternative investment options and advise clients on incorporating them into their portfolios.

Research: Research is also essential for the development of a career in wealth management, and our M.Com. programme gives particular emphasis to research skills that are required by advisory services relating to wealth management. We offer PhDs in finance, risk management and wealth management that help develop research skills.
