Tristone provides high quality and cost-effective business support services and human resource solutions to financial institutions, corporates/portfolio companies and start-ups that are typically located in high cost financial centers or jurisdictions.

Our model enables our clients to have access to a dedicated and well-trained team of junior professionals on a regular basis or for specific projects without incurring all the indirect and fixed costs associated with an internal hire. This can provide greater leverage to our clients and enable them to focus on growing their business. Our service can increase the efficiency and productivity for our client’s team and at the same time reduces their overall human resource costs.

Our Analysts and Associates are hand-picked professionals who are highly qualified and have relevant prior experience having worked for either investment banks or investment funds, having provided valuable support on a wide range of investment activities or projects across the financial services spectrum.

In addition, our senior partners conduct a rigorous training program for the incoming professionals and monitor the quality of all client deliverables.
