What We Do

For most people, security is still much more emotional than a rational feeling. The great consultants have always popularized the concept of security with size and presence through offices in several countries. Banks have always popularized the concept of security with size and presence through bank branches. 

What we want to show is that people can feel the same security with a small independent management, tax, financial and investment advisory company. 

Our research shows that the companies can work safely with knowledge, showing people how safe it is to manage outside of big consultants or even outside banks. 

We provide our experience in management, tax, financial and investment consultancy, corporate services, global advisory, wealth & asset management, as well as meeting the requirements of development and growth of local and international companies.

We aspire to be the trusted advisor to our clients, which include corporations, financial institutions, financial sponsors, governments and public authorities and boards of directors and special committees.

By working with Indico Capital Merchant, you will have peace of mind that your financial portfolio is in safe, proficient hands that know what it takes to secure, maximise and cultivate your business, assets and wealth. Please see the products and services that we can offer below:
