In the late 1990s, we took a brave decision to incorporate ‘Advantage-India’. It turned out to be prescient, as India went on to emerge as a major global player. We too have evolved, to advise business interests in Singapore, HongKong, China, India, United Arab Emirates, the African continent, United Kingdom and Germany.
We do business across sectors. In BFS, we have covered the entire spectrum viz. Mutual Funds, Insurance, Pension Funds, Investment Banking, Securities Distribution & Financial Advisory. We have also advised clients from pharmaceuticals, medical devices, healthcare, mining, software, digitisation, education, auto ancillary, hospitality & travel.
The major benefit that clients get is the seamless integration of consulting, research and training – across multiple disciplines. Thus, clients not only get suggestions on the course of action, but are also able to build capacity and skills within the organisation. We are happy teaming with the clients in implementation.
Sundar Sankaran is Founder-Director. He is an alumnus of the prestigious IIM Ahmedabad (1986-88). He is also an associate of the Institute of Company Secretaries of India, and Institute of Cost Accountants of India. He has held senior positions in former Goldman Sachs associate, Kotak Mahindra and India’s leading automobile company, Bajaj Auto.
Since we are into consulting for the pleasure of making a difference to business, we are choosy in deciding on the clients we work with. We do not make any cold calls for business – most clients come through referrals. Some of them have stayed with us for over a decade. We are delighted with the long-term association, which occasionally transcends generations of business owners.
