After If God Was a Banker and Devil in Pinstripes, award winning author Ravi Subramanian comes out with the last in his trilogy of banking chronicles – The Incredible Banker. Set in the backdrop of Greater Boston Global Bank, an American bank struggling in its Retail business in India, the book takes the readers on a roller coaster ride which passes through Mumbai, Singapore and the jungles of Chattisgarh.
A new Expat CEO, a bank riddled with losses in its Retail banking business, mind numbing politicking amongst the honchos, aggressive loan sales guys battling the listless credit folks – Greater Boston Global Bank (GB2) seemed to be like any other foreign bank.
Till it all changed one day when Ronald McCain, CEO of GB2 is hurriedly pulled out of his morning team huddle and summoned by the RBI Governor. What ensued thereon was something Ronald was least prepared for. How could something as catastrophic transpire in an organization, considered to be the Mecca of banking? Ronald has no answers.
And when the CBI lands up at Deepak Sarups doors trailing the scent of a the same scandal, Ronald decides to distance the bank leaving Deepak, a senior executive, to fight his own battles. Will Karan, Deepak’s one time adversary and now a Journo, bail him out? Will Savitha, his girlfriend, stand by him? And will his family; the CBI and more importantly the country believe what he says?
