I am a Chartered Accountant with over 10 years of post-qualification experience in the fields of Financial Analysis & Strategy, Credit Rating and Transaction Advisory Services. I have worked with startups as well as large organisations, in India and Singapore.
In the last 2 years, I have been part of two start-up ventures. I am presently working with an Innovation Consulting start up, where I handle financial planning, product commercialization & strategy mandates. My key responsibilities include developing strategy for commercialization of products, analyzing historical financial performance and building forecast/projected financials based on key drivers and KPIs, assessing the key metrics for commercialization, interacting with potential investors and top management to raise funds and liaisoning with various parties involved in the transaction.
Prior to this I was with a credit rating agency, where I was part of the Credit Rating team (Large corporates), handling ratings of renowned large corporate groups with global presence. My key responsibilities were analysing companies’ business risk profiles and financial data, preparing financial models, writing comprehensive credit notes and rating rationales for publications, timely submitting rating reviews, handling investor queries (fund managers, investment bankers, bank’s lending team) and interacting with senior management.
I started my career with the global accounting firms (known was the Big 4/5) and my primary focus area was accounting and financial due diligence for M&A and Private Equity deals.
I have a vast and diverse experience, across various industries and my core skills lie in financial analysis, forecasting & planning, credit ratings, reporting and client management.
