by Richard Kilner
Credit Suisse has announced a trio of appointments to bolster its investment banking capabilities for India.
The Mumbai-based Investment Banking Department gains two new managing directors, Sughosh Moharikar and Samita Sha.
Moharikar leaves behind the position of executive director and M&A chief with Kotak Mahindra, where he worked for 14 years, to join the firm.
He will assume responsibilities for M&A advisory activities within India, and will be tasked with originating and carrying out M&A transactions.
He will report to both Anantharaman, Credit Suisse’s head of investment banking in India, and Joe Gallagher, the firm’s M&A chief for the whole Asia-Pacific region.
Shah will be responsible for emerging large cap client coverage, and will also report to Anantharaman.
She joins Credit Suisse from Lehman Brothers, where she served as MD and co-head of the Asia Special Situations team for India.
Shah has also worked for JPMorgan and ICICI Securities, and brings 15 years of experience to her role.
In addition, Ashim Ahuja joins as director of the investment banking team.
Ahuja will also report to Anantharaman, and leaves behind Deutsche Bank to join the firm.
