  • Deepak Gupta, CFA
    Chief Operating Officer Saxo India Private Limited

    I have passed all three levels of the CFA® Program. I gave my Level I exam in Dec 2012, Level II in June 2013 and Level III in June 2014 and have also received the CFA charter recently. The program gave me immense knowledge about the financial industry. It gave me the in-depth understanding on various asset classes.

  • Sarrthak Sayal, CFA
    Associate Analyst - Equity Research team at CRISIL

    I took the Level I of the CFA Program exam in June 2013 while I was in my final year of graduation. I have earned the B.com (H) degree from Sri Guru Gobind Singh College of Commerce, University of Delhi. It was an ambitious decision to take the Level I exam which I knew would clash with my final exams of graduation. However, with continuous support of the faculty at Finguru, I happened to clear it. I cleared the Level II exam in June 2014 and Level III exam in June 2015.

    It was because of my preparations for exam that I happened to clear some of really grilling entry level interviews in the area of finance. That also has a lot to do with the guidance received from Finguru and Mr. Sushant Suri.

    The good thing with the program is the relevance of the curriculum with the practical and real professional world. I would be absolutely right in saying that studying for CFA Program helps me at work almost daily while doing some of very complex assignments.

  • Vipul Goyal, CFA
    Senior Financial Analyst, Third Wave Solutions Pvt Ltd

    CFA Program has been integral part of my career plans, as it allowed me to switch from an Engineering background and enter the Finance Sector - as a fresher it is very difficult to get a job in the finance domain unless you have some sort of qualification or certification. Even clearing Level I or II exam of the CFA Program helps a lot in that regard. Furthermore, I think the content is very well developed and the knowledge gained during the course of study helps in several ways in terms of adding value to one's career and personal growth.

    Investment Consultant, Mercer

    I gave my Level I of the CFA Program exam in June 2014, Level II in June 2015 and Level III in June 2016 and passed all three exams in my first attempt. Wow it feels so special to climb the so called Mount Everest of the Wall street without any hiccups.

    When I started this journey I wasn't sure till what point or which level or in which attempt I will loose my faith and will accept the defeat. Finguru classes gave the perfect blend of knowledge and motivation to keep going on. Without the guidance and constant support this wouldn't have been possible Sir. You have been my best mentor in the entire life. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart.

    Clearing exams has given me a good learning opportunity to learn my job related concepts in a better way. I was able to enhance my performance at work and it gave me recognition as well at workplace. As calculating management fee and Incentive fee are my primary job responsibilities and it was the part of the curriculum as well.

    I would like to thank you for all the unconditional support and continual feedback regarding my performance. It provided me the right guidance and confidence to conquer the exams. Sir truly speaking without your guidance it wouldn't the reality. I would like to dedicate my success to you. Thank you for the wonderful mentoring. Hope to have a everlasting guidance and blessings from you.

His incessant support; academic and motivational proved to be the recipe for my success. A Big Big thanks to him. Apart from the study sessions, Finguru classes involve good discussions that make the concepts crystal clear with their classic real-world examples.

    I kicked off with my career at Fidelity Worldwide Investments in the Fund Operations profile when after 2 years I decided to switch to investment research; however, I wanted to gain insights into how are big bucks managed at fund houses and the subsequent investments made. The answer I got after hours of research was CFA Program. This indeed turned out to be a function-shift decision for my career. I have also worked with Eli Global as a Research & Business Analyst in the M&A team. Currently, I am working with the Mercer Investment Consulting team.

  • Jai Singh Gambhir
    Analyst, Bain & Co.

    I have passed all three levels of the CFA Program and may be eligible for the CFA charter upon completion of the required work experience. I cleared the Level I exam in 2013 and Level II in June 2014 and Level III in June 2016.

    The CFA Program curriculum is definitely challenging and requires immense hard work. It has equipped me with sound financial knowledge which I can apply at my workplace. It has helped me understand finance better. Apart from the knowledge I have gained, it has also made me more disciplined and has given me immense confidence in my own capabilities.  

    CFA Program is quite a rigorous program and it adds more than just finance. In the industry as well, people know it’s quite hard to clear these exams, given the low pass rates. So when you have cleared these exams, it speaks a lot about you as an individual too and is well recognized.
     
    A big thank you to Sushant for coaching and mentoring me across all three levels. Attending the classes helped my understand concepts better and ensured that my preparation was always on track. In short- if your aim is to understand the curriculum and not just merely pass the three exams- Finguru is ideal.
  • Mohit Sanjay Bathija
    Associate Solution Advisor , Advisory - Business Valuation, Deloitte USI

    I have passed all three levels of the CFA Program and may be eligible for the CFA charter upon completion of the required work experience. Started my journey towards the CFA charter in June 2014 with Level I exam and have successfully attempted and passed the Level III in the June 2016 attempt.

    The CFA Program has a practical application based element to its curriculum. This has added value to me both through my MBA journey and in my current job as a Valuation Specialist by providing me insights and logic of each and every element of the work I do. This gives me and edge and thus steepens my learning curve. It has personally added to my knowledge base and given me a disciplined approach for my career growth and enhancement.

    CFA Program provides a base which is highly interconnected and exhaustive in many areas. If you are able to connect and grasp the entire flow, it will make you see things in a much broader manner, a major reason for the immense respect and popularity of the Program globally.
  • Niti Prasad

    I have passed all three levels of the CFA Program and may be eligible for the CFA charter upon completion of the required work experience. I have passed Level I exam in December 2015, Level II exam in June 2016 and Level III exam in June 2018. 

    The CFA Program is globally recognized and highly accredited in the investment field. Preparing for the exams and clearing them widens your knowledge and understanding of the investment area and hence enhances your career opportunities in this field. I now have better understanding of the investment arena and hence am able to drive my career towards a better and desired financial role.

    I would want to thank Finguru and Sushant sir for providing the guidance and help in preparing for the exam with a better understanding of the curriculum.
  • Smriti Bhatia

    I am currently a Level III candidate in the CFA Program. I passed my Level I exam in Dec 2017 and Level II exam in June 2018. 

    Initially it appeared very difficult as I had nearly 4 months to prepare for the Level II exam, but because of Finguru it became possible. 

    The CFA Program curriculum has given me such in depth knowledge of finance. It sharpens your skills to analyze things and is so much logical. Learning things is very less important than understanding the concept. It builds up your confidence through gain of a huge amount of knowledge. It is a very good program for professionals in the investment field.

    Pursuing MS in Finance from University of California - San Diego

    I am currently a Level III candidate in the CFA Program. I gave my Level I exam in December 2017 and Level II exam in June 2018. 

    I believe this is a perfect course to get exposure in the investment domain. Being from a non-finance background (Computer Engineer), it was difficult to break into the investment sector, but now I get tremendous respect when people find out that I have cleared two levels of the CFA Program. 

    Sushant Sir is an amazing teacher. His lectures were of immense help. He explains complex concepts in a very simple language, and they get registered in your mind simply by listening to him. Even though I am from a Science background, I still never found it difficult to prepare for this exam and cleared both levels with a score of more than 90 percentile in each of them. 

    I would highly recommend Finguru to anyone looking to prepare for exams. Finguru, and specifically Sushant sir have played a major role in my success and I can't thank them enough for it.

  • Dakshina Vyas

    I am currently a Level III candidate in the CFA Program. I gave my Level I exam in June 2017 and Level II in June, 2018.

    The program has helped me to get into the finance sector. The CFA Program curriculum has widened my knowledge horizon and helped understand concepts in better and a more complete sense. Level II gave me an edge over other candidates for my current job profile and I’ am sure clearing Level III exam would help to reach the goal that I have set in my life.

    CFA Program certification is the end result but during this process of 2 years Sushant Sir has been the guiding force. The way he conducts his classes, the kind of advice he gives its just THE BEST!! 

    Thank you Sir!

    CFA Program has greatly enriched my knowledge in Finance and has definitely given me an edge over other applicants in Interviews in terms of know-how as well as recognition, being the internationally acclaimed course it is.

    Though initially I was quite apprehensive regarding taking level II with just about 4 months left for preparation, the faculty made sure that every concept, no matter how insignificant, was dealt with and explained clearly.

    The recorded videos available for multiple views and all-time available support for queries helped me a lot.

  • Aditya Gupta
    Pursuing Msc Investment and Finance, University of London
    I have passed all three levels of the CFA Program and may be eligible for the CFA charter upon completion of the required work experience. I enrolled for Level I in Dec 2015. I was always interested in Investment Banking bussiness and CFA Program was the right choice for this.

    Little did I know that there will be a lot of hurdles for me. Being from the science and IT background, I had never studied accounts and commerce subjects. It took me three attempts to clear Level I and two attempts to clear Level II.

    After my second failed attempt of Level I exam, I understood the exam is preparing me for the greater good and persistence is the key. The exam tested my patience, every time i was well prepared but ended up getting band 9, like in the markets not everyone can run in the bullrun so was with me in the exam. But under the right guidance of Sushant sir I was so confident that I also appeared for FRM together with my Level II exam and passed both of them.

    I am really thankful to Sushant Sir and finguru. All my doubts were promptly clarified.

  • Rishika Singhal
    Junior Associate at Moody's Analytics Knowledge Services

    I am currently a Level III candidate in the CFA Program. I passed Level I exam in December 2014 and Level II exam in June 2017.

    This has not been an easy journey for me since I came from a completely non-finance background but I did not give up.
    The CFA Program helped me get into the financial industry and start my career. After getting into investment banking and its curriculum has started to make a lot more sense since I can see the practical application of the curriculum and that's what made me believe that CFA Program is based on real life application. 

    Finguru has provided me with the right direction and tips to prepare for the exam. Sushant and Ankur have been the best teachers since they taught the most complex topics in the most simplest way possible. Finguru has played a major role in my success and I can't thank them enough for it. They faculty pushes you toward achieving your dream since along with hardwork, right guidance is very important in moving towards your goal and Finguru made me achieve my goal which at one point I thought was impossible. I highly recommend other prospective candidates to join Finguru to prepare for the exam.

    Analyst - Valuations and Business Modelling team, EY I have passed all three levels of the CFA Program in my first attempt and may be eligible for the CFA charter upon completion of the required work experience. 
    The program has propelled my career in finance. I now have the requisite knowledge and confidence to even further build my skillset.
    I took the Level I exam in December 16 and was not sure if I could take the Level II examination within a span of 6 months alongside my job, however Sushant made me believe that I could clear it. With his support and encouragement I not only passed Level II exam but also managed to score 70% + in all the subjects.

    I am currently working as a analyst in the Transaction Advisory team of Ernst and Young. My current role involves a high degree of practical application of what I have learnt.

  • Pallavi Tikkoo
    Credit Research Analyst- Genpact

    I am currently a Level III candidate in the CFA Program. I passed the Level I exam in Dec 2012 and Level II exam in June 2014. 

    Prior to choosing to take up the CFA Program, I had a Master's degree in finance. I would say there has been a visible change in my understanding of the concepts, after taking up the course. It has given me a much more analytical and a logical thought process, a completely different outlook towards understanding the finance concepts. Professionally, I feel the respect among peers, management and the clients. For me this program has done a great job of highlighting me in front of the employers.

    It has definitely enhanced my finance career path. For prospective I would say, the material is thorough and very extensive, it is NOT easy to crack this exam without planned and proper investment of time. It's not difficult to understand, but requires an implementation of the study plan.

    The coveted credential has earned me much more than just a professional degree. It opened a lot of job opportunities for me, which otherwise would not have been possible for me to achieve at this stage of my career. Adding CFA Program certification to your CV is a great thing and it would definitely broaden your outlook towards the finance industry.

  • Jyotika Sethi
    Business & Technology Delivery Analyst with Accenture I am currently a Level III candidate in the CFA Program. I was from non finance background (electronics and communication engineering) and was working in an IT company writing codes, when I heard about CFA Program from a friend but didn't know anything beyond the full form of the acronym.

    I attended the introductory session about CFA Program by Sushant Sir and I was then convinced that I have to study this course. I joined finguru in Jan 2016 and gave my Level I exam in June 2016 and then Level II in June 2017.

    Due to engineering mentality, I am kind of a last minute prepper , I started my Level I prep for June exam on 18th March and for Level II, I started on 3rd April giving me hardly 2.5 and 2 months time respectively. I can genuinely say that if it weren't for Sushant Sir I wouldn't have cleared any of the exams. His video lectures were of immense help. He has the ability to explain complex concepts in a very simple language that it gets registered in your mind by simply listening to him. Apart from video lectures , I also attended his crash course which really sealed the deal. One thing that I really like about crash course is that he connects all subjects together stressing on the links between various subjects and how one thing that we studied in some subject is related to other something we studied in other subject. The whole connect the dots is extremely useful making CFA Program getting etched in our minds like one whole big story.

    CFA Program has really added to my knowledge as well as my resume. I understand Economic Times much better now. I will continue my association with Finguru for Level III as well.
  • Mridul Gupta

Finguru and Sushant sir, you have played key role in believing in me and motivating to study hard and nail Level II. Well you were too optimistic about me clearing it which was really motivating me. 

    The best part about was the spirit of the faculty to take classes with full spirit even though you had a tiring schedule. Hats Off to you sir.

    CFA Program has added value to better interpret the complexities of the Financial Sector. The curriculum is such defined that it links the macro elements like interest rates with fixed income yielding instruments, financial reporting implications on the valuation of an entity, derivative valuations using advances quantitative techniques and likewise. With a robust commerce and finance background, CFA Program enhances my skill set to link the variables better and look at the larger picture for analogies.

  • Shruti Sharma
    Senior Analyst, Copal Amba I am currently a Level III candidate in the CFA Program. I appeared for Level II exam in June 2015 and cleared my exam in first attempt. But this battle was not that easy, Sushant Sir support was unwinding from first day when he made me realised that it can be done in three months only. All the study sessions were in detail and I find my concepts very strong, this is the only factor which helped me in sailling through this exam. Class notes and CFA curricullum books are necessary and sufficient study material.

    CFA Program has enhanced my knowledge base and it gives competitive edge in the finance industry. In my workplace I have seen people planning for CFA Program after completing their MBA (in finance major) or are already CFA candidates, thus it is coming up as a common acceptable professional course of finance industry.
  • Nikhil Ganotra

    I am currently a Level III candidate in the CFA Program. I gave my Level I exam in December 2016 and Level II exam in June 2017. I cleared both the exams in the first attempt. I am currently also doing Financial Modelling. My main motive for pursuing CFA Program was not to get a job but to get familiar with the terms that I got stuck while reading newspapers, annual reports etc. After clearing Level I and Level II, I feel comfortable while reading financial newspapers, research reports etc. 

    Joining Finguru was one of the best decisions I took which saved a lot of my time and helped me clear those exams with expert guidance by Sushant Sir. The recorded videos and notes provided by Finguru were a boon for my last few days preparation

    I am currently a Level III candidate in the CFA Program. Unlike many people my age, I had decided what I wanted to do in my life just as I chose to pick commerce in my Senior Secondary. Even though the core focus was on subjects like Math and Accounting, I knew this would help me reach my penultimate goal of doing B.COM (Hons.) from one of the best colleges in Delhi University (Sri Venkateswara College), and later enter into the field of my interest- FINANCE for which I enrolled myself in the CFA Program and cleared my Level I on 27th January 2015 and my Level II on the 28th July 2015.

    To take my fundamental knowledge in finance and convert it into something that is practically applicable to every financial market anywhere in the world, I am pursuing Masters of Finance at The Australian National University which is ranked 25th in the World.
     
    PS. Thank you Sushant Sir for all your help and support. Clearing level II without your guidance would have been very difficult.

  • Kunal Aggarwal

    I am currently a Level II candidate in the CFA Program. The program adds a lot to our knowledge and also is a different experience altogether. This program in particular is a lot more technical than the other professional programs going on in the country like CA, CMA etc. It is different in the sense that it requires a lot of application and analysis of concepts rather than just mugging them up and throwing up in the exams.

  • Apurva Virmani

    I have passed all three levels of the CFA Program and may be eligible for the CFA charter upon completion of the required work experience. I took the Level I exam in December 2010, and passed the Level III exam in June 2014.

    The CFA Program is a systematic, comprehensive and focused curriculum to understand the fundamentals of the world of finance and investing. Having studied the course has given me a thorough understanding of many concepts, and a lot of clarity in this field, which I felt otherwise lacking in the finance based courses I have previously done (I did my bachelors degree in finance, accounting and management). 

    Besides this, being able to persevere and complete the three levels after overcoming the world of distractions that many of us must face, I feel a renewed sense of confidence in my ability to achieve anything I set my eyes upon. It is said that the course and the exams are not easy. The only times I felt they were difficult was when I was not prepared and did not put in the hard work required.

  • Oshin Sidana
    I am currently a Level III candidate in the CFA Program. Unaware about the program I randomly accompanied one of my friend to attend the CFA Program seminar during my college years. Even at that point of time i never thought this program to be my career shaper. 

    Graduated in Economics honours, I have studied Finance in my last year, though it included only basics about options, financial markets etc but enough to create my interest. So i enrolled and appeared for Level I in June 2015 and looking forward to appear for level III in June 2018. 

    With God's grace and with cooperation of Sushant Sir and Ankur Sir i was able to score 70 percent above in 9 subjects in Level II. Thank you for all the inspiration you have provided and enthusiasm that made every class enjoyable.
