Morgan Stanley, a worldwide investment bank, has named Arun Kohli as its new country head for India. Kohli, who formerly served as Morgan Stanley’s head of investment banking, will now be in charge of the company’s activities in India, including corporate finance, wealth management, and institutional securities. Kohli brings with him more than two decades of experience and knowledge in investment banking. Prior to joining Morgan Stanley, he worked at Citigroup, Deutsche Bank, and HSBC.
The hiring of Kohli as Morgan Stanley’s new country head for India underscores the firm’s commitment to expansion in the area and its aim to capitalise on India’s rapidly expanding economy. India is one of the world’s fastest-growing major economies, and Morgan Stanley is ideally positioned to benefit on the possibilities that this growth presents. Kohli expressed his enthusiasm for the job, saying he was looking forward to working with his team to produce the greatest outcomes for the firm and its clients. He also expressed confidence that the company’s excellent reputation and competence will assist it in continuing to develop in India.
The Wall Street bank has been operating in India for 29 years, according to its website, and offers a variety of services such as investment banking, fixed income, commodities, and derivative products. Shah was named country head in 2021 after rising through the ranks after joining the company in 1996 as an associate in the institutional equities office in Mumbai. Simultaneously, in 2021, the bank appointed Kamal Yadav and Sachin Wagle as co-heads of investment banking in the country, while Samarth Jagnani was named the new leader for global capital markets in India.
