I learnt one of the most important lessons in my life from Benil Sir – the never quit attitude!” I joined the Technical Training batch after completing my MBA from FISAT, Cochin. It was during that time that I also enrolled in the NISM exam for Investment Advisor – Level 1. I tried to write the exam two times, however I could not clear the exam. Benil Sir spoke to me, and tagged me to the NISM IA training that was being conducted at Hedge School at that that. “ They did not even take fees from me for the NISM IA training. And with great efforts by both Jasna ma’am and Noufal Sir I am able to clear the IA exam in my third attempt”, says Anju Thankachan. She is currently working as an Associate in the Wealth Management division at Hedge. “ All the work that I am doing today is all because of Hedge School. The faculty are extremely supportive – no matter how many times I used to call them with my doubts, they would always be there to help! I was able to clear the exam only because of their support!” A strong believer in the concept of financial freedom, Anju has already started SIP. “ Only if we take the various financial instruments that provide financial freedom – SIP, medical insurance, term insurance – can we advise others about its importance.” are her words of wisdom. The last we heard, equipped with the never quit attitude, this young girl recently cleared her NISM – Investment Advisor – Level 2 exam recently.
