Life At Centrum

Human Capital constitutes the core of our business. We believe that people are our greatest asset and make significant efforts to nurture and develop them. At Centrum, we recruit for skill, experience, right attitude, commitment and diversity. However, the one common trait that runs through the DNA of every person at Centrum is entrepreneurship. We encourage our employees to act as owners, partners and managers of their individual functions while providing a conducive environment for them to be creative and productive.

Every new joinee is mentored by a member of the senior management, who helps draw out a clearly defined career progression path for the members. We reward on merit and performance, which is why many members of our senior management team are as young as 35 years.

A healthy work life balance improves productivity and boosts employee morale.

Indoor Sports, Yoga Sessions and a fully equipped gym, help our members cope with their daily work pressures. Our food festivals are creatively designed and yummy and for those who go overboard, we regularly organise health check-up camps to help them stay fit.


The Centrum Management Trainee (MT) Program provides a platform to groom fresh talent who have the potential to become future leaders. We partner with institutes such as XLRI, ISB, NMIMS to recruit our potential leaders of tomorrow. All MTs undergo a one year vigorous training program which covers, one week on boarding program followed by deployment of MTs in various functions of a particular business unit on rotation basis, post which we match their skills and performance to a challenging role within the group.


We impart training domain on expertise and behavioural skill sets through training within the various units and functions of Centrum Group. We understand that one-size- fits-all learning programs are passé and hence have regular training programs specifically targeted for holistic all round employee development. We also send our members for external training sessions to various management institutes that help them hone their skills and improve productivity.


At Centrum, we instill the values of giving back to the community in every employee from the start. The Centrum Foundation is the CSR arm of the Group that undertakes numerous activities and encourages all Centrumites to whole heartedly participate as volunteers.

    I am glad to share that my journey so far at Centrum has been professionally enriching and on the personal front a rather satisfying one.
    I firmly believe Centrum is a unique platform for enterprising Investment Banking professionals who believe in applying their financial acumen and thought leadership to offer innovative financial solutions to clients.
    The management believes in high degree of delegation which can be potentially leveraged to meet one's professional growth aspirations and adding genuine value to clients.

  • Kim Ann Lobo

    Vice President – Wealth

    When I joined I started off doing what I had done all my professional life, building client relationships and servicing them to the best of my abilities. Eventually I molded myself to being a very strong sales support as well as taking the forefront in most product, market related conversations with clients. So from joining Centrum as an AVP Business Development, I now handle a full -fledged Relationship Management role as Vice President.
    I think this is not a unique story at Centrum. It is more of a norm. The organisation has been built around providing people a platform to think big, to think out of the box and to go and achieve success from sheer hard work and diligence.

    Having the right attitude and willingness to learn goes a long way at Centrum. I am proud to be a Centrumite.
