Earlier this month, ANAROCK announced merger of ANB Capital with itself to start a real estate investment banking advisory service. It created a separate vertical ANAROCK Capital. On the tie-up, Stephen Rushmore Jr, President and CEO – HVS, said: “Together we foresee rapid expansion in the region and will be able to tap into more resources to serve our clients better than ever.”
HVS India has had more than two decades of exposure in the country, he said, adding that the partnership with ANAROCK will help increase HVS India’s revenues by up to 75 per cent over the next two years. Puri said the creation of the new vertical is part of the company’s plan of rapid expansion in terms of both geographies and business verticals.

Tourism in India is growing by over 15 per cent annually, and the launch of HVS ANAROCK coincides with some of the most exciting times for the Indian hospitality industry,” Puri said.
