Our plans are ambitious. Our India team is expanding and ready.'
Himanshu added, 'Over the next several decades, India will experience tremendous growth and become the leading market for corporate and investment activity. As established and early-stage organisations across multiple sectors seek significant value creation, they will require support in solving complex strategic and operational problems.
