The perfect fit: global financial services firm finds its ideal Indian hub

When a leading financial services firm needed to establish a new shared services center in India, it turned to Everest Group for an objective, 360-degree analysis to identify the optimal location. With Everest Group’s robust due diligence and on-the-ground validation, the client selected Hyderabad, which enabled it to double its center’s size within five years.

The challenge: identifying the ideal Indian city for expansion

The financial services firm faced a major decision – where to establish its new shared services hub in India. With dozens of potential cities and no internal knowledge of the local market, India's vast geography posed a significant obstacle.

The client needed to identify a location that could support its global footprint across multiple dimensions, provide access to qualified talent to maintain operations and service quality, and offer cost efficiencies to achieve its desired profit margins. Meanwhile, cities had vastly differing risk profiles regarding infrastructure, government policies, talent retention, and more.

Equipped with hard facts and perspective, Everest Group formulated actionable recommendations to empower the client’s decisions.

With so many variables at play, the client required an experienced partner to cut through the complexity. It needed robust data and on-the-ground insights to make the optimal expansion decision. The stakes were high, as choosing the wrong location could jeopardize its Indian growth plans.
