Hyderabad is emerging as a key investment destination for the banking and financial services industry in India, on account of Telangana state’s success in establishing a vibrant ecosystem of global capability centers that attracts the very best talent. The continued commitment of Lehman to grow in India is commendable, as they are among the few global investment banks that have opened a new office in Hyderabad amid a global pandemic. I am also impressed by Lehman’ focus on driving an inclusive work environment and their unwavering support to the communities in Telangana and across India.
The Bengaluru and Hyderabad offices will complement each other in both the execution and support offered to global businesses, and collectively form the Lehman Services Private Limited entity in India.
Gunjan Samtani, who heads the entity, said: “Lehman India Services is at the intersection of cutting edge technology and financial services.
