About Credit Research Challenge

The Credit Research Challenge (CRC) is an annual competition that assesses contestants on their knowledge in the credit research and analysis domain. CRC is structured to encourage contestants to analyse companies with a credit portfolio management focus.
CRC is India's biggest platform to develop capacity in the pivotal "Credit" domain. From this year CRC will be organised separately for the following 3 segments:
1) Under-Graduate Students
2) Post-Graduate Students
3) Financial Services Professionals ( under the age of 35)

This annual educational initiative intends to bridge the knowledge gap on Fixed Income and Credit markets and promote the best practices in credit analysis and appraisals through hands-on training and intensive learning in credit research and financial analysis with presentation skills.
