Hiring and Training
Amba analysts are the source of our competitive advantage – our success stems from our ability to attract, train, mentor and retain the best available talent in investment research.
Our hiring process includes stringent screening at every stage. As a result, our selection ratio (number of candidates chosen over those screened) is one of the lowest in the industry. We evaluate candidates on various parameters ranging from knowledge of capital markets and finance, attention to detail, written and verbal communication, numerical skills, customer orientation and teamwork.
Amba analysts are MBAs, Chartered Accountants, Engineers, CFAs and PhDs. These talented individuals then undergo our extensive foundation course, which is recognized as best in class. Amba’s 10-day Equity Investment Analyst Training Program has received accreditation to account for 40 Continuing Education credit hours as part of the CFA Approved-Provider Program.
Our Continuous Education Program (CEP) covers sectors, asset classes, and modeling best practices, to stay abreast of latest ideas, reinforce essential skills and stay current with the latest developments in investment research.
Our ongoing, on-demand training programs in sector/industry research have also been validated by professional organizations such as ACCA (UK) and CIMA (UK), the latter having accredited us as a Continuous Professional Development partner.
The best validation has come from our clients – one of the largest global banks uses Amba to assist with their in-house analyst-training program.
