Narayanan will add to the firm's capabilities in corporate finance, funding in special situations and mergers and acquisitions across other sectors, the firm said in a statement.
Prior to Singhi Advisors, Narayanan was head of client coverage and debt financing group at FirstRand Bank in India. In the past he has worked as a director for structured trade at BNP Paribas. Before that, he was a director at Standard Chartered Bank.
“Narayanan has worked across multi-disciplinary domains including investment banking, corporate banking and has strong relationships across various sectors such as financial services, healthcare, telecom, FMCG, automobiles and information technology,” the firm said.
