Posted on 19-09-2014Theme A few leading stock-broking companies in India, which set up operations a couple of decades ago, have evolved over the last decade or so. From being pure-play stock-brokers, most of them metamorphosed, initially into listed, full-service investment banks, and more recently into fully diversified financial services companies (FSCs).

Throngs of desk jockeys choose to escape the summer heat and take advantage of the lighter work pace of the late-summer weeks. Popular New York-area beach destinations like the Hamptons and the Jersey Shore brim with well-heeled vacationers. It's ironic that the season often associated with...

Cable news pundits recount earnings reports as though they were sportscasters summing up last night’s game scores, with the “winners” and “losers” easily identified.
