Guest Lecture by Mr. Alroy Lobo

On 26th August 2013, Mr. Alroy Lobo, Chief Strategist and Global Head equities, Kotak Mahindra AMC and alumnus of the 1988 batch visited the campus and addressed the junior batch.

The session began with a brief introduction about Mr. Lobo’s glorious academic and professional past. He spoke on investment management as a career option. Thereafter he discussed the various skillsets that are required to become an investment manager. He also addressed a plethora of questions ranging from the importance of small investors in the Indian markets to the recently introduced US immigration bill.

Mr. Lobo elaborated the various facets of capital markets and shared some valuable insights based on his personal experience. He further dwelled into the various challenges faced by an investment manager both in personal and professional life. He stressed on the importance of being updated with the latest happenings in the field and developing the ability of making relevant inferences from the same. The session ended with a brief question and answer round.

Overall, the session was very interactive and the batch learnt a lot from this discussion. The Alumni Committee would like to thank Mr. Lobo for the valuable time that he spent and for sharing his knowledge and experience with the batch. We look forward to having many more interactions with him in the future.


I think the junior batch was very lucky to have Mr. Lobo talk to us about the different career options within the financial services sector. He shared so much valuable insight about how important it is to stay updated with the recent happenings in the financial markets and economies around the world. All in all a very informative lecture.
Would love to have more interactions with him !

It was a very insightful lecture. Mr. Lobo gave a ringside view into careers in finance, what it involves and fielded a flood of questions posed by the students. Would be great to have him on campus again !
