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 CA degree would be ideal, as these give you the ability to understand the financial and analytical skills to evaluate whether a company’s business plan will fly.

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

One also needs to have a passion for spotting good investments. For this you cannot be trained. It is that nose for good money which will give you the edge over those who have similar paper qualifications. Instinct is a skill too.
