Due Diligence

Umbrex is pleased to welcome Neeraj Monga with ANTYA Investments. Neeraj is a top-ranked investment professional with extensive experience in forensic accounting, corporate governance, fundamental equity analysis and thematic research. Over a successful career spanning twenty years in global investing and advice, Neeraj has assisted clients in avoiding torpedo stocks that decimate portfolio performance. Neeraj focuses only on actionable and strategic investment advice and avoids the EPS-based rat-race that provides little value-added information to institutional investors.

In his consulting practice, he advises clients on M&A and acquisition-related due diligence as an independent advisor to directors. Many global companies such as HP, Caterpillar and others have been burnt by buying far-flung businesses that had to be written down due to sub-optimal due diligence by advisors, investment bankers and the management team.

He also advises teams on go-to-market strategy for new products, entering new geographic areas, and identifying new customer segments. All advice is data-driven, fact-based and provides actionable implementation plans. Numbers, details and ideas speak naturally to Neeraj.

If you are looking to add tremendous value in the shortest possible time on a complex project, then he is your man. Neeraj can provide leadership training, lead and coordinate top-management idea generation summits, and challenge top-management teams to stress test ideas and projects to ensure a winning outcome for everyone.
