Within this domain, we are as much focused on creating M&A and joint venturing opportunities for Indian clients in global markets- what we call “taking India to the world”, as on emerging market acquisitions for global companies.
Our M&A footprint extends across the world. Our focus being on emerging markets, we are very active, apart from India, in Africa, Eastern Europe, the Balkans, South America and most recently in Turkey. This is buttressed by our deepening inroads into Western Europe, Scandinavia, USA, Australia and the Far East.
