t is no hidden fact that a CFO is critical for a company's growth and smooth operations. However, a large number of corporates are unable to either afford or find a full time quality CFO of stature to handle their complex business needs.The crux is to provide the skill sets of experienced CFO/Finance professional of large corporations to the small and medium sized enterprise (SME) sector, allowing smaller organizations to benefit from the expertise of a highly experienced CFO without incurring the expense of hiring someone full-time.Finding an opportunity here, Rajesh Mittal, an industry veteran established Alamak Capital Advisors an equity, debt and financial advisory company.
"We found a gap in mid-corporate segment to offer strategic and advisory support which is based on sound empirical evidence. We provide clients the advantage of a full time virtual CFO yet at a very affordable cost. Our team acts as a conduit between F&A team of the client and the promoter,"explains Rajesh.
The company is a boutique investment banking firm which provides a variety of services, the first being debt advisory which includes fund raising, corporate debt restructuring and debt syndication.
