ACA Group (ACA), the leading governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) advisory and technology firm in financial services, is opening a new GRC financial services office in Pune, India, to support the growing financial services market in the region and, most importantly increase its access to great talent to support ACA's rapid global growth.

The new GRC financial services office opens in Pune, India on February 13th and adds to ACA’s “follow the sun service,” which will support clients around the clock and improve project turnaround times. As regulatory scrutiny across the globe intensifies and becomes more complex, ACA has taken this strategic stance to immediately boost global compliance capabilities in high-stakes areas such as managed or outsourced services and Regulatory Technology.

ACA Partner, Richard Kemmling, has relocated to Pune and taken the Head of APAC role. High-profile hires have already been made, including a Head of Operations and Head of HR – a sign of ACA’s intention to make Pune a key strategic hub.

Over the next 12 months, the firm will hire more than 100 individuals with initial hires in ACA’s Managed services, IT support/application, and risk specialist divisions. This GRC financial services expansion into Pune allows ACA to deliver its product and service offerings to additional global corporations while providing internal opportunities for accelerated career experience and growth.

Shvetank Shah, CEO of ACA Group, said: “Our continued growth is fueled by high-performing team members, so we are keen to meet talent wherever they are. Expanding our global footprint to India, and to Pune, opens up access to world-class talent with differentiated skills – in risk and compliance, analytics, managed services, and technology. We are delighted to launch our Pune office and expect rapid hiring growth here, with every part of ACA represented over time.”

Richard Kemmling, Head of APAC, ACA Group, further commented: “Known as the Oxford of the East for its universities, Pune offers an exciting future talent pool for ACA. Global financial players are already here, and more are coming, which means we will now be at close call for clients across the globe. ACA Group is certainly on its way to truly being ACA Global.”
