ABOUT THIS COMPANY:The formidable four
Established in 1984 by four veterans of Dalal Street -- Manek Bhanshali, Vallabh Bhanshali, Jagdish Master and Nemish Shah -- Enam was amongst the first corporate stockbrokers in the country. It was set up with the mandate to provide knowledge-driven financial services at a time when the country's economy was undergoing reforms that were market-oriented. The firm, with its headquarters in Mumbai, today has a presence in all the major cities across India.
Enam's phenomenal reach gives it a distinct advantage in rallying the wherewithal needed for IPOs. The company, through its strong network of over 5000 franchisees, musters about 25 percent of the total funds that are raised in the country's equity markets.
