Building the Future of Wealth Management: A Look at Flyer’s India Office

By Danielle Helfand

Here at Flyer, we’re dedicated to powering the modern investment manager. Our team of software engineers is focused on building the tools to do just that.

Along that journey, we leverage not just cutting-edge advancements, but also the brilliance of diverse teams across the globe. Besides our U.S. headquarters in New York, did you know we also have an office in Hyderabad, India?

That commitment to global collaboration was further emphasized by an on-site team-building visit to our India office. Randy Prager, our Chief Technology Officer, and Scott Scherr, Flyer’s Managing Director/Head of Product Strategy, touched down in Hyderabad to strengthen ties between our international teams and gain valuable insights into the advanced work being done there.

Today, we’re giving you an inside look to the Hyderabad team – including how it came to fruition, the growth we’ve achieved since its inception, and what the future holds for our India-based team. Let’s dive in!
