Broking firm Elara Securities today said Lord Meghnad Desai has joined the company's board as a non-executive independent director.
"As we expand globally, Lord Desai's counsel and presence will be the right catalyst to pitchfork our growth in newer areas and geographies," Elara Capital Plc Vice Chairman Raj Bhatt said.
Lord Desai is Emeritus Professor of Economics at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). He was awarded the Padma Bhushan in 2008.
Elara Securities specialises in research & brokerage with focus on institutional clients.
