The Inflexion difference

Halo is bolstering its technical capability and accelerating its international expansion utilising Inflexion’s track record of acquisitive growth and global presence to scale in a fragmented market. Halo’s management is drawing on Inflexion’s rich Technology experience, with recent relevant investments including My Policy, K2 Partnering Solutions, Outdoor Plus and Group IMD. The firm is also benefitting from support from Inflexion’s in-country experts particularly in India where a number of potential client introductions have been made. Our in-country expert in India is providing significant support  to the business and has helped put in place a new local marketing team.
