Ramamurthy, with a distinguished career spanning four decades, has deep insights into the banking and securities markets. He was a crucial member of the founding team of the National Stock Exchange (NSE) in the mid-1990s.

With a background as a cost accountant and a member of the Indian Institute of Bankers, Ramamurthy played a significant role in the development of NSE. Under his contribution, NSE not only challenged BSE but also overtook it, establishing a near-monopoly in certain segments of the market, particularly in derivatives, known as futures & options (F&O).

Before his current role as the managing director and CEO of BSE, he served as the chief operating officer at the Indian arm of Bank of America. In this capacity, he was responsible for the global governance and control of the bank’s operations in India, including the securities segment.
