Having been a marathon runner for 12 years, Shanti Ekambaram, President – Consumer Banking at Kotak Mahindra Bank, had the perfect remark to share when tasked with the economy question.

In conversation with Bain Capital MD Amit Chandra, she said, “The economy is slowing down so we have to run faster to keep up. We have to run faster to stay in the same place.”
