MUMBAI: Last week, after almost a decade-long, trailblazing career in leadership consulting and managing the corner office of global executive search firm SpencerStuart in India, Anjali Bansal took the plunge into private equity, coming on board TPG Growth as its newest MD and Partner with a mandate to build out a stronger platform for the blue-blooded investor in the region.

Similarly in May, after 16 years in corporate finance — starting off as an M&A and capital markets legal brain trust at Davis Polk and Wardwell and Paul Weiss, in New York and London respectively; followed by stints as an investment banker with Morgan Stanley and more recently with Citi in Mumbai as their Head of Equity Capital Markets Origination; Bhavna Thakur jumped ship – also to private equity. As head of Capital Markets and Exits at Everstone Group, Thakur has to ensure big paydays for her investors as the PE and real estate group with over $2.5 billion of assets under management looks to actively churn their portfolio.
