As an engineering student from Bhopal in the late ’80s, Neelesh Surana had a faint idea of how the stock market functioned. But he wasn’t immune to the IPO frenzy that was sweeping every nook and corner of the country. Tapping in, Surana ended up making tidy gains in a market, which was then riding high on the Harshad Mehta factor, albeit on a modest sum. Today, the 46-year-old manages Rs.2,700 crore in assets at Mirae, the South Korean financial major that entered India in the fateful year of 2008.
