Duff & Phelps, the global advisory firm, today announced the launch of a technology and innovation center at HITEC City in Hyderabad, India.
The center will focus on software development, automation and innovation with a team of software engineers, technologists and senior leaders. The 150-seater facility spread over 9,000 square feet joins the firm’s footprint of more than 85 offices serving clients across 28 cities worldwide.
“We continue to make significant investments in tech-enabled growth to transform processes, improve efficiency and maximize turnaround times,” Brett Marschke, chief operating officer, Duff & Phelps, said.
Duff & Phelps entered the Indian market with the acquisition of American Appraisal in 2015. In May 2018, the firm further expanded its Indian presence with the acquisition of Kroll, a provider of risk mitigation and corporate investigations services.
Duff & Phelps is the largest independent valuation firm globally and serves some of India’s largest companies across information technology (IT) and IT-enabled services, retail, energy, healthcare, manufacturing and financial services, among others. In addition to Hyderabad, the firm has a presence in Mumbai, New Delhi and Bengaluru.
