“With a long and established relationship with India, our markets are a perfect fit for the country’s investment hungry companies – home to the world’s deepest pool of international capital and an unparalleled community of internationally focused advisers who truly understand the needs of Indian businesses. As market conditions continue to improve, and our pipeline strengthens, we look forward to welcoming many more Indian firms to London”.
