The shared values and commitment to client success and to our staff make this partnership a natural fit.”

Natarajan & Swaminathan will continue to operate under its existing name, and its current leadership team will remain in place, ensuring a smooth transition for both clients and staff. The combined expertise of KNAV and Natarajan & Swaminathan will result in a synergy that enhances the services provided to clients in Singapore.
