Siri Advisory: Corporate Financial Strategists For Global Expansion

CIO Vendor Focussed on catering to the needs of the local Indian market rather than supporting businesses to venture beyond borders and expand into the global market, the current landscape of Indian consultancy has shied away from opportunities for businesses to find a foothold in a foreign market. Researching about the consulting business especially in the mergers and acquisition sector in the European, Asian and American markets during early 2011, Srinath Parankusam promptly observed that the market was mainly controlled by a few big firms and there was a need for niche players who could cater to midsized companies.

He also observed that around 85% of the acquisitions in the global market failed to integrate with the acquirer which compelled him to lay the foundation of Siri Advisory in 2012 in the Netherlands and in India. A financial consulting group headquartered in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, Siri Advisory facilitates companies in Europe, Asia and the Americas which are eager to cross over and push their horizons through inorganic growth.

Equipped with like-minded finance professionals across the globe Siri Advisory targets mid-size business houses who are not only willing to enter the international arena and exploit the global demand for their products but are also in need of a good consulting partner in this endeavour.

Most of the M&A advisory firms provide pre-acquisition support and corporates depend on their internal team members for post-merger integration, which often leads to technology, business-ideology and cultural mismatch defeating the purpose of the acquisition. “Our Acquisition Integration experts have facilitated successful transitions for our clients by adopting a four-pronged strategy viz., Business, Finance, HR and work culture Integration to comprehensively deal with all the aspects related to an acquisition” avers Srinath Parankusam.
