Capital Markets of India: An Investor's Guide

Description:    Capital Markets in India: An Investor's Guide aims to provide the first comprehensive book on
                investing in the India markets. India is right now at the forefront of globalization. The book's focus
                is on the equity market, but it also addresses derivatives, fixed income, and foreign direct
                investments. Chapter topics include facts about the Indian economy; the Foreign Institutional
                Investor (FII) regulations, registration process, and applications; detail about the market regulation
                and the regulator; the very important market safeguards built into the Indian market systems; and
                lists of companies ranked by various criteria such as capitalization, turnover, industry, and
                earnings. The book even supplies investors and traders with contact information for many of the
                key institutions and market players. Readers will not only gain basic information about how the
                markets in India work, but also the contacts and facts to help them with their own investing plan.
