What was the concept behind incepting TresVista Financial Services? How and why did you decide to create it?
TresVista was borne out of an opportunity to create a firm that provided high-end research and analytics to global financial firms. While there existed many established firms that provided a basic template based output, no one had yet integrated with firms to provide the complex and value-added services that TresVista has over the last decade. Today, TresVista stands as an epitome of the entrepreneurial spirit within India, as we hire young people across 40 of the top colleges across the country. With 400 people across multiple offices, we are growing at over 50% with an average age of management that is under 35 and an employee base whose average age is closer to 25.
How has the company maintained its momentum in the evolving financial industry?
TresVista has continued to invest in people and spends a lot of time training them. We also remain focused on our target market and have stayed ahead of the curve by listening to client needs and evolving our services and expand accordingly.
Brief us about the technology backed trends infused/deployed by the company?
The group is accustomed to technology since we were a small firm with 25 employees, using it to be efficient and automate several processes. Today, we use several technology-based analytical tools to help manage the company better.
What are the values and factors that the firm attributes its success to?
We pride ourselves on being perfectionists and continuously improving. We strive to be the best versions of ours and give 100% to anything we do as a firm, leaving no stone unturned.

TresVista provides high-end customized solutions. The quality that differentiates us is the knowledge of our target market and the ability to integrate successfully with our clients.

What challenges does the firm see in the market?
Technology is disrupting the market and creating new paradigms and dynamics under which TresVista has to operate. It’s imperative that we stay ahead of the curve on this front. Compliance is another area that is evolving, and companies in their space will have to be extremely diligent in their efforts to cope with a changing environment there.
Views on what an organization must look like today to compete?
One needs to be adaptable to change and have the ability to attract the best talent.

How has been the journey as a leader?
Given that I was just 27 when the company started, as I approach 40, I have really grown as a person with the company. It sounds clichéd, but learning from one’s own mistakes and having the awareness to evolve has been enriching. My role at the company has changed considerably from leading a start-up to trying to institutionalize and build an organization of scale. It has come with a unique set of challenges and rewards.
