"No matter what I write here, it will not be sufficient to describe the contribution made by this institute and in particular its core leader "Ratan Gupta" in my life. An IIT rank holder, CFA and FRM, when I first met him I was expecting some attitude but believe me he has got none. He is one of those individuals who do not believe in minting money through coaching but indeed treats the success and failure of his students as his own. He works hard to help his students understand the concept and never gives up on them. I first met Ratan sir in 2010. I had already cleared my level 1 CFA. I found the quants and derivatives section tough and given the fact that the weightage was very less for these subjects I did not even bother touching them. While preparing for Level 2 CFA I new I cannot clear the exam without preparing for derivative and quants as the weightage was high this time and I felt the need of a tutor and thats when I met Ratan Gupta. He helped me understand the Level 1 concepts first and only then moved to level 2. It was his hard work and trust in me that I was inspired to take FRM exam and clear it as well. Derivatives and quants use to scare me once and now I make a living out of it.. I have been working in the area of derivatives valuation and model validation for over 3 years now.. I would like to extend my sincere thanks to Ratan sir for helping me through both my CFA and FRM exams. Thank you Sir Ji!!! "

Hi, It depends on how much experience you have, if your experience is less than 1-2 year then you can switch career and enter into risk management field. However if you have good amount of experience (>5 years) then operations risk management is an area you can look at. Thanks Ratan
