Handbook of Indian securities

When Gautam Parikh joined an investment banking firm in 2010, he needed to find answers to questions about the security market that his clients threw at him. He wanted to tie up the legal aspect of the business to the practical ways of the security market. But he quickly realised that while the information was available, it was fragmented; there was no master reference book, or even comprehensive documentation available.

So, he decided to write the book himself. Handbook... seamlessly integrates law and economics by taking a holistic approach to its subject matter. He begins by explaining everything about the demutualisation of the stock market and the abolishment of the ‘badla’ trade, and subsequent chapters cover, among other things, P-notes and Indian depository receipts. His painstaking research gives portfolio managers, CFOs and students and lawyers a great single-window reference on a subject that could be tedious. A must-have for finance professionals.
