Group Leader, Asian Fixed Income at Fidelity International


Sabita, can you please walk us through your career path post IIM Lucknow?

Post IIML, I specialised in fixed income in a combination of rating agencies, sell side and buy side firms. I started my career as a rating analyst with CRISIL in Bangalore, who later seconded me to Standard & Poor’s in Hong Kong. I worked for 6 years in the credit rating field, after which I wanted more capital markets exposure on the “sell side”, a term used to describe teams that support capital markets broking activities of banks.

I worked with JP Morgan and HSBC in Hong Kong as a fixed income analyst for the next 4 years, where I added markets knowledge to my rating experience. In my sell side role, I researched and recommended corporate bonds to our “buy side” clients, mainly the fund management industry. Interacting with clients on the buy side stimulated my desire to put my ideas to work more practically by working directly for the asset management industry, and so I joined Fidelity International in 2004. Now I head up our fixed income investment team in Asia, having oversight over personnel in research, trading, operations and product specialists in the region, who are based in Hong Kong, India and Japan.

What do you think were your greatest takeaways from IIM Lucknow and how have these contributed to your success?

1) Persistence pays.
2) Examine as many angles of a situation as possible in order to make an enlightened decision.
3) Never shirk from the small details that convert a task from being acceptable to being extraordinary.
