In an exclusive interview with CEO Insights, Abhishek gives more insights into his professional journey and how he has been able to achieve sustained success in the industry.

Could you give a brief account of your professional background and experiences?
I did my B.Tech in Electronics and Communications, after which I started my professional journey with Infosys. After a year, I decided to do MBA to not only find more interesting challenges but also to expand my horizons. Post completion of my MBA, I joined IVP as a Business Analyst. Throughout my professional career, I have predominantly worked on the product management side across different product segments. I started as a Business Analyst at IVP, and over the years, I have held various positions in the company including Senior Business Analyst, Associate Director, and as of now, I am the Director, Product Strategy for our Data Management Solutions.

I Could you tell us about the unique experiences IIM Rohtak offers and what did you learn from the campus beyond academics?
We were able to learn and train under great professors who gave us immense insights into what is required in the industry. Aside from that, major emphasis was given to peer learning at the institute, and learning with different people who have diverse academic backgrounds helped me to expand my horizons even more.

Resource fulness is also some thing that you learn at the campus and
very quickly it helps you realize that things are not given to you on a platter, you have to work for what you want to achieve. As this is also the case in the corporate world, learning how to be resourceful helped me to be better prepared for the industry.

What are the major factors you take into consideration while suggesting solutions to the clients?
Coming up with solutions is a step-by-step process which starts by fully understanding the problems faced by the clients. This is a crucial step as identifying the actual problem will allow you to offer the best solution. The next step is to identify and evaluate options to come up with the most viable solution. We also have to look at its short and long term impact. After that, the implementation time line should also be analyzed so that it is reasonable. As we are operating in a niche and fast moving segment, keeping ourselves updated with the latest technology is also crucial. That being said we only adopt technologies which suits our operations the best and help us improve the quality of our offerings.

Going forward, what are the changes in market behavior that you anticipate and what are the opportunities that you foresee?
In the asset management space, we do see immense potential for growth in alternative investment allocation. This is driving growth in plethora of investment firms and apart from this, we are also seeing increase in the diversity as well the complexity in investments. The regulatory focus has increased over the years and the interest on ESG (environmental, social, and governance) investing is on the rise. Over the last couple of years, investment in digital transformation is also increasing, and we anticipate this trend to continue in the coming years.
