I have a background in banking, finance, and capital markets for over two and a half decades and can humbly claim to have some insights into the global and Indian economic environment with a good grasp of its underlying dynamics. This has been possible due to my exposure to the global and Indian environment when I was with Standard Chartered Bank and Oracle Finance (formerly i-flex solutions). I have also spent a reasonable time working with a boutique stock broking company where I set up debt dealing capabilities. I later headed their equity research desk during which period I had the benefit of interaction with many institutional investors. Currently I consult in the areas of equity research and corporate finance.
