Dr. Varun Nagaraj, the Dean of SPJIMR, responded to the news of the appointment by saying, “We are thrilled that Ananth’s experience will help India’s capital markets. We are also anticipating the fresh knowledge that Ananth’s affiliation with SEBI would provide SPJIMR students, who already see him as a role model.”
