FTI Consulting, Inc. (NYSE: FCN), the global business advisory firm dedicated to helping organizations protect and enhance their enterprise value, today announced that FTI-International Risk, the leading international risk mitigation and investigation consultancy in Asia, has adopted the FTI Consulting brand. This brand change is a further step in realizing the global 'One Brand' strategy of FTI Consulting and is an important part of the integration of the various FTI Consulting businesses in the Asia-Pacific region.
Initially founded in 2000, International Risk Ltd was acquired by FTI Consulting in July 2006. The acquisition formed the Company's Global Risk and Investigations team in Asia, which is part of the Forensic and Litigation Consulting practice. Global Risk and Investigations undertakes sophisticated investigations, uncovers actionable intelligence and performs value-added analysis to help decision makers address and mitigate risk, protect assets, make informed decisions and maximize opportunities in the Asia-Pacific region and globally. Headquartered in Hong Kong, the practice has regional offices at strategic locations across Asia, including Tokyo, Singapore, Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou.
"By transitioning into the single global brand identity of FTI Consulting, our clients will continue to benefit from a pool of worldwide resources and expertise, which is growing day by day," said David Holloway, senior managing director, Global Risk and Investigations, at FTI Consulting in Asia. "It also is a very exciting time for our existing 80+ employees as the brand consolidation will ensure greater opportunities for professional growth and development."
Rod Sutton, chairman of the Asia Pacific region, FTI Consulting, said, "This is a significant milestone in the 'One Brand' strategy of FTI Consulting. The integration phase is to be completed in our region by the end of August, and, as a result, FTI Consulting will become a truly global company, ensuring its sustainability within a challenging and dynamic market. In particular, this process will allow us to accelerate our growth in this region, where we now have in excess of 350 employees and are one of the largest specialist advisory firms across Asia Pacific."
