We are aware of the concept “Survival of the fittest” coined by Charles Darwin which suggested that organisms best adjusted to their environment are the most successful in surviving and reproducing. This concept is not only applicable to organisms in the natural world but also applicable to organizations in the corporate world.
In the fast-moving globalized business world, most organizations are finding it hard to maintain their existence and move ahead with their rivals. Businesses and organizations face the complex and changing dynamics of the global environment which requires them to continuously change and transform themselves in order to remain competitive and relevant. To cope with these complexities of the business world advisory function of the merchant and investment banking business has found better scope. The corporate advisory service is a specific service provided to business firms that require strategic and tactical advice in identifying opportunities and strategic options for corporate structuring and consultancy and facilitation of financing solutions. The sole objective of advisory service is to facilitate the undertakings and overcome the weakness in specific areas like finance business, legal, and others. The scope of advisory service is not only limited to established business firms but also to start-up businesses. Start-up businesses may concentrate on funding and market entry, whereas a more established business will prioritize new market penetration, change management, capital structuring innovation, corporate governance, and so on.
In the context of Nepal, Merchant Bankers can render corporate advisory service by obtaining a license from SEBON meeting all requirements prescribed by the Board. Besides that, any institution registered under prevailing laws of Nepal with the objectives of providing corporate advisory service can render the advisory service without obtaining a license from SEBON. In this regard as the pioneer investment and merchant banker in Nepal, NIBL Ace Capital Ltd has been providing corporate advisory services to its clients by obtaining a license from SEBON.
