One of the biggest assets for any Investment Bank is its people. And while every organization has an HR team and function, few are able to effectively capture the real talent from the industry.
This situation made Himanshu Jain (Ex- McKinsey) and Manoj Goel (Ex Goldman Sachs) to team up with a mission to make a bridge between the Job providers and Job seekers in the Core Finance Industry, by providing the training to the Job seekers, through simulation of exact scenarios that take place in the work environment of an investment bank.
In 2008, the Duo started ARC Finance Pvt Ltd., a boutique investment bank. After that, in 2009, they founded The Wallstreet School https://www.thewallstreetschool.com/.

The team claims that its student applicant base has increased 5x in past 3 years.
“We know what exactly the HRs at an investment bank look for, since we have been running our own IB firm for more than a decade. We have facilitated placements into this industry for more than a decade now”, Himanshu says.
Currently, The Wallstreet School’s Investment Banking Program has students from 12 countries spread across South Asia, Eastern Europe, Canada and USA.
