This is the most opportune time when India on the back of rising prosperity, investor confidence, and favourable demographics offers enormous prospects.” said Moses Harding, CEO, IIHL.

“We are excited to partner with IIHL to continue to expand distribution of our high quality, global and domestic investment capabilities to serve more domestic investors in such an important market,”said Andrew Lo, Senior Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Invesco Asia Pacific. “We are committed to serving our clients’ needs across India and maintaining our significant presence in Hyderabad as well.”
