Entrust Family Office Investment Advisors, an advisory firm offering complete investment and value added services to several prestigious high net worth clients, has announced the expansion of its advisory activity across India. As part of the expansion, Entrust is now adding personalized direct equity advisory service for its clients. Mr. Shashank Khade, earlier leading the Portfolio Management Services division at Kotak Mutual Fund has been appointed as the Director and Chief Equity Advisor to head the new division. 
In his new role as Director and Chief Equity Advisor, Shashank will leverage his insights to deliver the best equity capital market outcomes for clients. Given his deep understanding of Indian equity markets, he would play a key role in assisting the Ultra HNI customers of Entrust to develop their equity investment strategy, research, generate and advise on exciting stock opportunities.
Shashank joins Entrust from Kotak Mutual Fund where he was the Senior Vice-President and Head of Portfolio Management Services division. His stint with Kotak entities including Kotak Securities and Kotak Asset Management Company was over 11 years. He headed the Portfolio Management services division for around 8 years and was managing over INR 2000 Cr across various portfolio management schemes. He was part of the team, conceptualizing some of the best performing PMS schemes, like the Fortune Series while at Kotak. Prior to his stint with Kotak, Shashank was associated with IL&FS Venture Corporation (now IL&FS Investment Managers, private equity arm of IL&FS).
Mr. Rajmohan Krishnan, Co-founder of Entrust said, “Shashank’s wealth of experience, expertise and industry knowledge will make him a key member of our team. We are sure that Shashank’s expertise in equity, his in-depth knowledge of Indian companies across sectors and market caps, will be an asset for Entrust. We are confident that under Shashank’s leadership, our equity group can deliver superior results for the clients we serve.”
Speaking on his appointment Mr. Shashank Khade said, “India is one of the fastest-growing HNI segments in the world, currently contributing approximately 1.2% to the global HNI wealth. Although investments in equity have risen over the past decade, the majority of investments by individuals in India are still in debt instruments. There is opportunity for investors to gain more from equities. I’m delighted to be part of Entrust and to head the new personalized direct equity advisory division. I am looking forward to taking Entrust to the next level.”
After graduating with a Bachelors’ degree in Mechanical Engineering (B.E. Mechanical) from Sardar Patel College, Mumbai, Shashank specialized in Finance for his Masters in Management Studies from Jamnalal Bajaj Institute of Management Studies.
