Episode Summary

Favourable market conditions have made it attractive for companies to raise equity capital at relatively higher valuations, and many companies have taken advantage of the situation. The question is how long will this euphoria last? And will the IPOs suck liquidity out and derail themarkets rally? To discuss that, Mint's Nasrin Sultana is in conversation with Niraj Kumar, CIO, Future Generali India Life Insurance.
