The stars of India’s financial markets

UNTIL RECENTLY, INDIA occupied a hazy part of the average global investment banking CEO’s brain marked "untapped potential". That fuzziness has been wiped clean this year. Investment banks are piling into India, snapping up experienced local and expatriate talent, completing multi-billion dollar cross-border mergers, and establishing cost-efficient data centres employing thousands of skilled engineers.

Global bank CEOs, looking at India afresh, see a broad, deep equity market largely accessible to foreign institutional investors (FIIs). Global investors are rushing in. The market capitalization of Mumbai’s booming Sensex bourse, which has risen by nearly 500% over the past five years, passed the $1 trillion mark on May 28. Total FII inflow in June alone was $5.85 billion, according to the Securities and Exchange Board of India – a national record.

Deals are also being struck that make India’s vibrant markets the centre of world attention. The two largest domestic IPOs in Indian history took place over the past 12 months, as did three of the four largest follow-on offerings, and four of the largest corporate debt sales on record.
