Anyone who likes to crunch numbers to arrive at values for companies and can quickly digest information about a new sector can make a mark in this field.

* Having an MBA or a CA degree would be ideal, as these give you the ability to understand the financial nitty-gritty and also the analytical skills to evaluate whether a company's business plan will fly or not.

*As one climbs the corporate ladder, one has to develop good negotiating skills as well.

* But ultimately, one also needs to have the passion to spot a good investment. This will feed into your "gut feeling", which is intangible but will give you the edge over those who have similar paper qualifications.
