Leveraging on the growing bi-directional flow of capital between the UK and India

Founded in 2007, Red Ribbon is an Indo-British financial services group building on the legacy of historical, cultural, and socio-economic ties between the two countries. As India’s global economic role has burgeoned and it looks to a golden decade of growth – following the pattern of China’s trajectory template 20 years ago – the UK is shifting into a post-Brexit phase where trading and commercial relationships outside the EU are coming to the fore.

In this context Red Ribbon’s prospects are intrinsically intertwined with India’s forecast evolution from currently the world’s 5th biggest economy (ahead of the UK) to the 3rd biggest, overtaking Japan by 2030. The Company believes these macro-economic changes will yield significant niche opportunities to be exploited in the bidirectional flows of capital between the UK and India.
