    Description

    This novel could inspire more fraudsters than financiers! A compulsory reading for unscrupulous borrowers who don’t want to repay their bank loans!

    This is the story of a young banker, Sumit, whose employers believe in the motto, ‘turning conventional wisdom upside down.’

    Against the backdrop of the financial boom and subsequent meltdown during the first decade of the twenty-first century, Sumit becomes an unfortunate witness, participant and ill-fated victim in the affairs of the Ind-Credit bank.

    A series of life-altering events cause the onetime blue-eyed boy to be slowly but surely sucked into the dark abyss of the financial world, as his dreams begin to collapse around him and his personal and professional life begins to disintegrate.

    Will Sumit be able to survive?

    A first class effort for a debut novel.

    The Suicide Banker, a fiction, has intriguing plot narrated through a first-hand experience of a young banker; how, & what it takes to performs ones duty sincerely riddled with conundrum when the vision of the superiors are driven by a new venture, and which lacked the inherent strength. It has a glimpse of primal urge of the largest private sector bank to achieve more than it could aspire…... Getting complacent in what they are doing and not having plan B in place for a new business model…. ...

    Awesome sector insight

    The book scores high on research(stemming from practical experience of the author) but somewhat low on plot elements and flow. Like a typical Bollywood film, the first half was awesome but the second half lacklusture. Yet, if you want an insight into secured financing, retail banking culture etc, pick up this book it won't disappoint you.

    Excellent work

    commerce has always attracted me and so did the title of this book. After every chapter one can experience the curosity to know 'what will happen next?'. Yes Puneet Gupta was successful in arousing curosity in me. It is must read for all and specially for bankers, who in the quest to reach to the top sometimes compromise with the standard practices which every Organization must follow.

    The Suicidal Banker

    This is a book which is a must for all finance professionals. The book delves into basics of financing like knowing customer, due diligence and commonsense banking which is missing in today's fast changing banking environment where growth is more important than prudence.

    An excellent read with quite a few racy details about escapade of the protagonist with a young reportee, it makes an interesting novel along with its focus on banking.

    It also delves into job pressure of today's profession...
