Key Findings & Highlights:

Syntel is a U.S. headquartered public company that provides technology and business services to global 2000 enterprises.  

As of Q3 (ended September 31) 2016, Syntel derived 48.1% of its revenues from the banking industry (BFS).  

Syntel’s FinTech services for banking started in 2014 because, based on its knowledge of how technology was developing in the industry, it saw the potential demand for autonomics from banks. Syntel's initial offering, which was deployed internally to support its own BPS operations, was for screen scraper automation. This was later deployed at clients for their internal operations. Its second offering was for automation services for solution development operations, which again has been subsequently deployed at clients.  

One of Syntel's major clients for FinTech and other services is a large global custodian. The relationship started in 2003 when the client requested help setting up an Indian base of operations. Initially, Syntel provided advice and operational expertise to set up the delivery center; and in the second year, the operations were restructured as a joint venture between the client (51%) and Syntel (49%), to address regulatory requirements in India. The client provides managerial oversight and strategic direction, while Syntel is responsible for operational delivery. Today, Syntel provides ~6k FTEs to the JV (out of Syntel's ~24k employees).
