Ishan Handa


My approach is fundamentally goal-oriented. The thrill of balancing the demands and concerns of interested stakeholders (clients, counter-parties, other advisors) whilst simultaneously creating a workable structure, keeps me motivated and enables me to think ‘outside the box’. This in turn, allows me to solve issues which up until then were considered ‘unsolvable’, a quality that is particularly useful in an industry which can sometimes be tied down to conventional approaches.
