|Mr. Amar Ambani is the Head of Research at IIFL. He has been instrumental in setting up the India Private Clients desk and manages a team tracking alternate assets and personal finance, besides traditional asset classes. The Research team consists of award-winning analysts and has been credited with several successful ideas. |
He has revolutionized the way research is offered to retail and mass affluent customers by introducing the "Ask Analyst" facility to clients through online platforms, access to which was earlier available only to a privileged few. He pioneered the concept of publishing Call success reports in the broking industry; this provides a transparent update of the strike rate of every fundamental recommendation made by an equity analyst.
Mr. Ambani has been with the India Infoline Group for over a decade and is spearheading the transition from plain vanilla broking into an advisory and financial planning culture across the group. Next on the agenda is implementing a portfolio approach to stock recommendations for retail and mass affluent clients, again a first. He also oversees the online initiatives, CSR strategy and special projects of the Group, directly reporting to the Chairman and Managing Director. He is also a Director of India Infoline Media & Research Services.
He has completed his Post Graduate Diploma in Business Administration, majoring in Finance from the Mumbai University and a programme on business process re-engineering, certified in Japan.
