Much sought after by financial news channels in India for his insights on equity markets, Paras is a well known personality in the financial circles. His expertise gained recognition about 3 decades back, when he got his start managing the Indian tranche of Asian Convertibles & Income fund for SBI Funds Management.
He was responsible for managing equity AUM of $700mn for Birla SunLife Asset Management in his 11-year stint as Vice President and Head of Equities. In 2005 he moved onto ING Investment Management India Pvt. Ltd. as Vice President and Chief Investment Officer, where he managed AUM of $2.5bn of the AMC, insurance and FoF arms of ING Groepe in India. Being the founder and MD of Capital Portfolio Advisor and an alumnus of Sharekhan Education are other bright chapters in what has already been a long and successful career.
Paras is well known for finding hidden gems which have great potential for appreciation and it comes as no surprise that many of his students request for additional sessions and time with this master investor.
