India

India has the 7th largest economy in the world and has maintained GDP growth rates of nearly 6% for the past 20 years, replacing China as the world's fastest growing major economy at the end of 2014.

The country is increasingly integrating into the global economy, successfully exporting innovations in IT and manufacturing, amongst other industries. The agreement of the Comprehensive Economic Cooperation Agreement between India and Singapore in 2005 has catalysed an extensive flow of business between the two states.

We work with many successful Indian families, as well as multinational Indian companies operating in key economies around the world. Teams in Singapore, London, Hong Kong and the US lead these relationships, and Indian clients benefit from our extensive international network.
