"What distinguishes a successful investment banker is the ability to manage the 3 Es, viz. egos, emotions, and expectations, on both the sides of a transaction. Looking at this from the entrepreneur's perspective, as we always work with, ego is sometimes what comes in the way of seeking funds at the right time, and recognising the space that you have to provide for working with a financial partner. Emotions come up when you are giving up something you have built, and have been obsessed with over many years. And expectations are largely about valuations; also, sometimes, the strategic value that an investor can bring to the table. As an investment banker, you have to balance these on both sides, buy and sell." C. Venkat Subramanyam, Founder Director, Veda Corporate Advisors Pvt. Ltd, Chennai (http://www.vedacorp.com/)
