Srikanth Velamakanni is the Co-founder, Group Chief Executive and Executive Vice Chairman of Fractal. In 1998, he joined ANZ Investment Bank from business school in the structured debt department and he got a chance to work with clients such as Enron and in sectors such as aircraft finance. A move to ICICI Bank’s structured products group followed—“due to lifestyle issues”—and this is where Srikanth and Pranay Agarwal, eventually a co-founder at Fractal, worked on India’s first collateralized bond obligation (CBO) in 1999.
