Financial management is a very important skill for an individual to possess but the situation in India is rather grim. Only 5% of the Indians aged 19-24 formally learn to trade.

Financial markets have made significant progress over the last decade which spans several dimensions of development such as accessibility, regulatory framework, market infrastructure, transparency, liquidity and the types of instruments available. This has created requirement to train and educate the local work force on some of the global systems, regulations and process.

To address this market, we have Intelivisto, a knowledge management company that provides e-learning solutions supported by online exam preparations blended with classroom experience. It has a specific focus on the financial sector and test preparation segment in India.

“The low internet penetration in smaller towns and cities is a cause of concern. Also, the learning habits of the users would undergo change which might take some time before online/e-learning become an excepted norm,” cites Gaurav, on a concluding note.
