What is needed is an effective low-cost model of expanding research capabilities while, at the same time, keeping costs under control. One proven and effective way of achieving this is leveraging the highly advanced research capabilities of offshore destinations, particularly India. Over the last decade, credit research outsourcing in India has evolved significantly with strong existing domain expertise across asset classes including investment grade, high-yield and distressed. Outsourced research teams in India are both experienced and proficient in supporting credit funds across the investment research value chain be it with idea generation, investment evaluation or monitoring.
