Chairperson's Message

The Banking and Finance industry is the main pillar of the economic growth of India. The whole face of Banking industry is undergoing a major change in the area of technology, operations and customer dealings. The Indian Securities Market has witnessed tremendous growth in the recent years. With growing economic activity, Securities Market offers rewarding career opportunities in mutual fund distribution, stock broking businesses and other allied activities. The India growth story is making an attractive market for investment advisory firms. Banks in India have taken up eligible financial services or para-banking activities such as Mutual Fund business, Stock broking business, Portfolio Management Services etc either departmentally or by setting up subsidiaries.
The growth of Indian securities market offers attractive career options for students from commerce, economics and management streams. However, it has been observed that a large part of student community is not adequately exposed to availability of rewarding, respectable and glorious career opportunities in securities markets. In-depth knowledge about the securities market is useful to people interested in securities markets as a career option, at the same time it is also very important for people interested in investing in securities markets. Indian Securities market is well regulated and offers many options for creation of wealth.
Certificate programs are offered like associate programs in addition to regular program which take shorter duration and cover important topics that industry looks at. These joint certifications offered by NISM and VESIM cater to the needs of capital market and make the students industry ready before they actually join the companies. These certificates stand out on a resume as a value addition, preference for short listing and enhance learning of current practices. We at VESIM strongly feel that joint programs with NISM will help in quality capacity building for securities markets and investment advisory.
