IFR INDIA ECM Conference 2017


IFR’s 2017 India ECM Conference will convene panels of senior ECM professionals to discuss the key themes affecting the current market, provide an outlook for 2018 and identify real market opportunities for investors, arrangers and issuers in the next 12 months and beyond.

The Conference will consist of two sessions:

Session 1: Private Equity exits drive the IPO market; Insurance companies crowd out the domestic primary market.  Is the space now open for the overseas market?


  • V Jayasankar, Head of ECM, Kotak Mahindra Capital Company 
  • Arvind Vashistha, Head ECM, Citibank India
  • Bhavna Thakur, Managing Director, Capital Markets, Everstone Capital
  • Mangesh Ghogre, Head of ECM, Nomura India 
  • Pinak Bhattacharya, Head of Corporate Finance, IIFL Capital 
  • Valeria Ceccarelli, Head Issuer Relations, SIX Swiss Exchange
  • S. Anuradha, Deputy Editor, IFR Asia (Moderator)


Session 2: Infrastructure Investment Trust IPOs have traded weak and, as a result, issuers are putting on hold InvIT IPO plans.  What  is required to revive this market? Will the REIT IPO market fare better?


  • Harsh Shah, CFO, India Grid 
  • Venkatraghavan S, Head of Equity Capital Markets at IDFC 
  • Gaurav Sood, Vice President ECM/Head of Syndication, ICICI Securities
