Khushru Jijina

“I am truly honoured to receive the ‘Business Leader of the Year 2017’ award from Global Real Estate Congress and would like to thank the jury for recognising our journey. In a market that is otherwise plagued with strong cycles and transactional relationships, we have successfully built a model of long-term partnership with the ability to cater to developers across the entire capital stack right from project equity and debt to housing finance for the end user. As recently as 2014, we started with assets under management (AUM) of Rs. 1,500 crores and today we have crossed Rs. 65,000 crores. I would sincerely like to thank Mr Piramal for giving me this opportunity to lead a young and dynamic team and I dedicate this award to each and every member of Piramal Finance and Piramal Housing Finance.”
