Hers is a job that bristles with challenges. "Stock markets do not allow you to switch off except when they too switch off," says Falguni Nayar, 48, Managing Director of Kotak Mahindra Capital Company, or KMCC.

The mother of 21-year-old twins says the biggest challenge is that of doing a successful initial public offering, or IPO, for a company. Timing is critical. "Don't bring the bride too early to the wedding," she advises her clients. KMCC has done IPOs for several important companies in the country.

Among Nayar's recent successes was the Coal India IPO last October, which turned out to be the government's single largest disinvestment ever, netting Rs 15,745 crore.
