CRISIL Young Thought Leader Program

The CRISIL Young Thought Leader (CYTL) competition is an endeavour to promote and recognise young thought leaders on campus. Since its inception in 2001, CYTL has provided a unique platform to aspiring business leaders to showcase their views on a wide continuum of contextual topics related to the business environment, thereby strengthening the link between academia and industry. We are delighted to invite your participation in the

Dear Friends,

CRISIL has been a pioneer and thought leader in the analytics space over the last 3 decades.

Our thought leadership, backed by relentless innovation and analytical rigour, has enabled us to not only be a change agent in our businesses, but also a pioneer of many path-breaking ideas. The new paradigm of hyper-connectivity and intense competition requires corporates to be global, innovative and agile in their approach, to see beyond the obvious and challenge the status quo, even as they strive to maintain excellence. Just as important is the passion and resoluteness to execute and implement effectively. CRISIL appreciates and encourages these traits across campuses through the medium of the CRISIL Young Thought Leader Competition (CYTL). Launched in 2001, CYTL invites dissertations from students on contemporary business matters. Over the years, the competition has attracted distinguished work across a broad spectrum of issues and offered a unique platform for future business leaders. In the context, I am happy to announce the start of the 17th edition of CYTL. Once again, we invite young minds to give shape to their ideas and analyses, their unique and contextual perspectives on business issues of global or national relevance. So grab this opportunity to raise the bar by pitching your ideas against the very best. CRISIL's senior leaders are deeply committed to this endeavour and are involved at every stage of the competition. I look forward to you setting us thinking!

Warm Regards,
Anupam Kaura

Dissertation topics for CYTL 2017

 

Global

 

How should CRISIL's talent acquisition strategy change in the next 5 years?

With businesses becoming more global, how do we ensure our hiring practices are in sync with global trends, sensitive to culture, gender and nationality? There are firms that no longer ask for CVs; fake inputs on CVs is a big challenge; good talent is never looking for a job actively; Can BGV be more social media / data analytics based than on physical documents? These are some questions as TA teams and their CEOs plan their talent strategy for the future.

Political and regulatory response to the financial markets crisis

Many policymakers and bank supervisors argue that the financial system is now much more resilient than before the financial crisis, as a result of increased regulation and capital levels held by the major banks. Yet others argue that the prescriptive nature of many bank capital metrics, such as the regulatory stress tests commonly used by supervisors to determine appropriate capital underpinning, and other regulatory actions, have resulted in markets which are less-liquid, in much risk being moved to the 'shadow-banking' sector, and caused a herding in banks' business models, which increases systemic risk and leaves parts of themarket under-served. What is your view?

Innovation

 

Digital disruption

A wave of disruption is threatening business models across the world. These new entrants have structural cost advantages and are offering solutions that are often simpler, cheaper, or more convenient for customers. The paradigm of profit and revenue is at times replaced with cash burn rate. What do you think are the next set of digital disruptions in fintech? Are there emerging organisations and ideas that are challenging the traditional lending and payments space?

Future of sell-side research in a post MiFID II world

The Markets in Financial Instruments Directive II (MIFID II) regulations on the usage of equity and FICC research are scheduled to come into effect from January 2018. These regulations are aimed at bringing transparency towards investor money spent by buy-side firms on sell-side research, corporate access and execution by unbundling these charging from trading commissions. Critically analyse these regulations in light of:

 

  • How the current sell-side research market structure is likely to change in 2-3 years
  • What strategy should sell-side firms adopt to remain relevant

Analytics

 

The quest for 'alternative data'

Many policymakers and bank supervisors argue that the financial system is now much more resilient than before the financial crisis, as a result of increased regulation and capital levels held by the major banks. Yet others argue that the prescriptive nature of many bank capital metrics, such as the regulatory stress tests commonly used by supervisors to determine appropriate capital underpinning, and other regulatory actions, have resulted in markets which are less-liquid, in much risk being moved to the 'shadow-banking' sector, and caused a herding in banks' business models, which increases systemic risk and leaves parts of themarket under-served. What is your view?

Predictive analytics - myth or reality

Agility

 

How can organisations strike a balance between tighter regulations, higher governance requirements, and financial goals?
