About me: Pranav comes from the northern part of India and is an ardent football fan and a motoring enthusiast. He has covered several trails including the world's highest motorable pass, Khardung Pass, Leh, India (18,379 ft).
Professionally, he has always wanted to work at the confluence of technology and finance, hence after completing his Bachelors degree in Engineering, he started his career with Deloitte with a special focus in the financial services industry. In order to be more involved with the capital markets, he soon transitioned his career from consulting to investment management. He worked with CRISIL Ltd. (S&P Company) as a quantitative equity strategist for three years and then joined the Masters in Finance programme at LBS to further his knowledge and acquire tools that could help him excel within the same industry.
He is really passionate about quantitative investing and is a strong proponent of Quantamental Investing. He is also a CFA charterholder and an active member of the CFA India & UK society. Having a solid foundation and broad experience in the sector, he remains deeply interested in the asset management and hedge fund industry.
