Unnati is India’s first student run investment and research group which is primarily focused on equity research. It was conceptualized in June 2001 with the objective of providing future managers with a launch pad to enhance their learning.
Unnati’s philosophy is to find value stocks through fundamental analysis. The analysts-in-training generate quality research. The second year Senior Security Analysts (SSA) mentor the first year Junior Security Analysts (JSA) in analysing sectors and evaluating the stocks. The stock analysis meetings stimulate debate and a culture of forming opinions and questioning assumptions, which leaves the team richer in experience.
Unnati’s stakeholders are at the heart of all its activities. The research generated is distributed in the form of newsletters, sector outlooks and stock recommendations to keep all stakeholders well informed. Professionalism is one of the core values around which Unnati is founded and is what differentiates it from the many investment research groups across B-school campuses that have emerged following its success. The teamwork and knowledge transfer model in place ensure that the bar is raised every year and continuity of operations is seamless.
