FinX acquires a majority stake in CIEL

14th November, 2019

FinX has undertaken an industry-supported acquisition of a majority stake in Centre for Investment Education & Learning (CIEL). Led by Dr. Uma Shashikant (Co-founder, CIEL), CIEL with its all-women team, is involved in the creation of learning solutions (in the digital & physical medium) for the BFSI Sector. Over the last decade, CIEL has built a stellar repute amongst all the leading BFSI Corporates and their certifications have also been accredited by the National Institute of Securities Markets (NISM).

CIEL is not only a strategic but also a synergistic fit with FinX and vice versa; with the latter’s vast ecosystem and the former’s content & e-learning capabilities. Post the acquisition, FinX has now evolved into a complete holistic entity capable of undertaking its goal of employment & employability in the BFSI Sector in a full-fledged manner.

CIEL will continue to operate as an independent agency, with Dr. Uma Shashikant continuing to be the Chairperson of the Board. Mr. Himanshu Vyapak (CEO, FinX) will join the Board as MD & CEO, along with Ms. Upasana Koul (COO, FinX).
