CapMetrics & Risk Solutions – Company Review





Since I live in Pune, it’s natural for me to start the company review section with a Pune-based company CapMetrics.

Before I start, let me clear one thing, this analysis is for people who are looking for entry level career in financial analysis and research and want to know more about CapMetrics.

Capital Metrics (henceforth would be referred as CapMetrics) has delivery centre on Bhandarkar Road at Deccan Gymkhana, Pune .

About CapMetrics

Founded by Rahul Rathi and Rangarajan Sundaram in 2003, company provides services and products in investment management, investment banking and investment consulting.

CapMetrics’ clients include large banks, FIIs, FIs, large home offices and fund of funds.

The company covers over 100 stocks in India and US. It covers asset classes as broad as—Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs), Master Limited Partnerships (MLPs), & Canadian Royalties.

As per the company’s website, it boasts of having five plus years experience in dealing with institutional clients. I think, the website of the company is not updated as the company was founded in 2003 and by now it’s almost 10 years of the working and the five plus years’ experience sounds bit dated.


The company is highly into quantitative analysis and modeling. It uses sophisticated software tools to calculate and analyze the data.

CapMetrics has segregated its work into three different areas.

1. Investment Research includes asset allocation analytics, creation of benchmark indices, development and back-testing of investment strategies and fundamental research.

It’s high quality research output is based on three things—first, idea generation, where economy-industry and company analysis is done and then investment ideas are generated.

Second important thing is—detailed modeling and valuation where past data, future trends, interaction with management and sensitivity analysis is done.

Third thing is—quality assurance and monitoring.

2. Quantitative Analysis includes risk analytics, risk management and structured products pricing

3. Performance Analytics focuses on risk and return benchmarking.

Skills required

You should be highly flexible and open to working in different teams. It seems that company looks for people who have multiple skills or open to learn new skills as the company clearly says that career growth is based purely on mastery of skills.

My observation says—if you want to make career in this company then don’t be rigid. Even if you’re from fundamental research background, be open to work on quantitative analysis projects. Also, your ability to get along with people and work in teams will come handy in this job.

In addition to this, you should be really passionate about financial research, self-motivated and open to learning to new technologies and practices.
