We also publish quarterly sectoral report on various sectors based on holistic and fundamental analysis. At ERC, we strive to nurture the talent of enthusiastic students by providing them a platform where they can unleash their potential.

The skills developed through ERC's initiatives not only help the student develop sound understanding about the equity market but it also builds the efficacy of sectoral research, understanding of management decisions and outlooks, core finance concepts of business accounting and technical analysis etc.

The club aims to encourage the students to develop enthusiasm for active market analysis and practice the classroom learning through implementation. It also fosters discussions related to economics and business stability owning to the close connection of equity performance with firm environment.

The club conducts 'Stockathan' which is an intra school competition and challenges the participants to prepare an equity research report and roll out recommendations to buy/sell/hold the said equity. ERC ensures that the students are aware about the basic concepts and frameworks useful to carry out a meaningful research.

ERC publishes the annual magazine named 'inFINeeti' which displays equity analysis of top companies in varied Industry sectors. The magazine is launched during the National Finance Summit.
