Meet the star of our fund house,” says R Srinivasan, head of equity at SBI Mutual Fund, introducing Sohini Andani, fellow fund manager in charge of the Bluechip and Magnum Midcap schemes. Both Srinivasan and Andani have made it into the list of top 10 fund managers in the Outlook Business-Value Research five-year ranking. If you thought Srinivasan was being generous with his praise, well, the 44-year-old has earned every bit of it. She was offered the role of a fund manager in 2010, two-and-a-half years after she joined the fund house as its head of research. A CA by qualification, Andani started out as an equity analyst, working for some of the most reputed domestic broking houses and later moving to the buy side as a senior analyst with ING Investment Management.
