Astute Consulting along with its affiliate Suresh Surana and Associates is amongst India's top 10 accounting and consultancy groups. On the face of an increasingly dynamic corporate landscape, Astute Consulting appreciates that today's rapidly growing enterprises need advisors who are capable of delivering innovative and cost-effective solutions that address their business requirements. The Astute Consulting Group (ACG) with a gamut of service offerings backed by a multi-disciplinary team, deep industry experience and wide pan-India presence, provides clients with high value-addition, unique and practical solutions that have enabled client companies to optimally leverage their competitive advantages.

Astute Consulting & Business Services P. Ltd along with ACG is the Indian member of RSM International – the sixth largest international organisation of accountants and business advisors with annual revenues exceeding US$ 2.6 billion and presence in over 70 countries. The core member firms of RSM International are - RSM McGladrey (USA), RSM Robson Rhodes (UK) RSM Haarmann Hemmelrath (Germany) and RSM Bird Cameron (Australia).

New brand identity 'RSM Astute Consulting Private Limited' – reflects position of an integral professional services provider to RSM International

In a recent development, Astute Consulting has been offered the esteemed 'full membership' position by RSM International, which will upgrade it from its present arrangement of an affiliate. Several critical factors have been instrumental in effecting this transition that is observed by RSM International as part of its global membership criterion, including critical size of ACG, its present expansion trajectory and future growth potential, and its leadership in the domestic market. ACG's evolution as a 'full member firm' evidently reflects the international organisation's confidence in the Indian company's commitment to its own business and in its strategic growth initiatives in the country. Reflecting the integration of the RSM international brand into its identity, ACG will soon be known as RSM Astute Consulting Private Limited.

Subsequently, select members of ACG will also now be represented on the committees of RSM International. ACG is regarded as the India centre of excellence for internal audit and risk management. With ACG's predominant strengths being resource mining and sourcing, India is regarded as a high-end resource centre for RSM's international activities. The new branding will not only enhance ACG's credibility amongst its own Indian and RSM International's global clients, but also augment the synergistic relationship with each other, supplementing both organisations' reliance on each other.
