Background and Motivation

Manab has over 40 years of experience in global financial markets. That includes 20+ years of C-level assignments, 6 hands-on start-up situations, Private Equity investments, and Restructurings & Turnarounds. Manab’s experience covers Investment Management, Banking, Financial Services, Information Technology, E-commerce, and Cloud Computing in the US, the Middle East and in India. His career covers Fortune 500 companies, family-owned enterprises, and start-ups. 

Manab started out as a Credit Analyst with State Bank of India before moving over to the American Express Bank in Mumbai as a Trader. After a dozen years of solid number-crunching experience, he was entrusted the role of CEO of a diversified financial company, which he built from ground up with partial funding from one of the largest industrial groups in India. Having caught the entrepreneurial bug, he did it again a few years later. Both companies completed successful Initial Public Offerings (IPOs).

In the mid-nineties, Manab moved to the Middle East as Global Head, Corporate Finance of a local Investment Bank. He was charged with directing and managing US Dollar Private Equity investments into emerging markets – largely into India. In a few pioneering transactions, he successfully leveraged international PE arbitrage opportunities to unlock extraordinary returns for investors by folding Indian companies into a US holding-company structures. During these years, Manab covered the entire gamut from turnarounds, cross-border Mergers & Acquisitions, and exits through business sales, IPOs and Restructurings.  Manab also supervised an Indian Equities Mutual Fund, achieving award-winning results (#1 Indian equities fund for 1 and 3 years rated in 1999 by MicroPal – an S&P company).

After moving to the USA, Manab continues to be involved in several India-based investment opportunities helping clients realize the potential India has to offer. India is close to his heart, which is why he enjoys taking month-long annual trips there to get an undigested, uncensored, insider view of the dynamic economy. We try to incorporate that knowledge, experience and passion into all our India-related research and investment theses. Manab is our resident India expert.

In his spare time, Manab is an average golfer – on a good day. ;-)
