Manish Chokhani – An expert who sees young India driving the growth
Chokhani is one of India’s most respected financial advisors.
Manish Chokhani was the CEO of Enam Securities, India’s leading investment bank that was the trusted “house banker” to several leading corporates. In 2011 he led the merger of Enam Securities with Axis Bank to create Axis Capital, which continues to lead the league tables in India. He has also helped to devise and implement the India investment strategies of several funds including the India Capital Fund, ZA Capital Fund and TPG Growth India (as Chairman).

He also serves on the boards of the publicly listed Zee Entertainment, Westlife Developers (McDonald's) and Shoppers Stop as well as on the Governing body of Flame University. He is one of the youngest MBAs to have graduated from the London Business School and a Chartered Accountant.
A seasoned finance professional, Chokhani saw a travesty in March 2020 meltdown. He was encouraging investors to grab the A-listers, at discounted prices. Chokhani maintained that trustworthy and good companies would stand to gain as the economic cycle recovers. And as foreseen by him and many other market pundits, the economic cycle did pick up, in a way that defied all expectations and assumptions. And today look at the recent corrections.
Words of wisdom from the expert Manish Chokhani?
He feels that India is in unprecedented times where drivers for growth are coming from all corners - the new age young retail investor’s enthusiastic participation, the disinvestment by the Government and the Birth of Unicorns (in the likes of NYKAA, PAYTM, ZOMATO), and the traction in the corporates. He is optimistic about India’s Growth story going forward. According to him, the markets have paused for a breath and would continue their onward journey to a full economic cycle. Multibaggers are there to stay and there to evolve.
