Story of MERKS

It might sound cliched if we say MERKS capital was born out of a desire to offer a true fiduciary advisory for clients consuming financial products and services. However, this was exactly the reason MERKS was founded.

Prior to MERKS, each of our founders were individual practitioners in financial services domain as advisors. They have combined experience of more than 60 years in this industry.

Fair Practice, Honest Advice

What does a genuine and reliable financial firm have at its helm? It has leaders with great sincerity, integrity, honesty, and trustworthiness. Our founding team consists of such leaders who have proved that financial services need not come at the expense of the client's well-being in order to be profitable. For MERKS, our customer interests come first. MERKS believes in fiduciary dealings based on mutual trust and a willingness to do what is best for the customer.

Founder’s Promise

MERKS was founded by us as we are truly passionate about finance and committed to offering fiduciary financial services to our clients. Our services are
honest, transparent, trustworthy and based on our strong desire to contribute to your financial prosperity.
