The company is a brainchild of Mr. C.(Dilip) M. Dixit, well known Chartered Accountant., who is Senior Partner in M/s G D Apte & Company. M/s G. D. Apte & Company is the oldest firm of Chartered Accountants from Pune. The firm has handled some of the major assignments in its illustrious history of 80 years. Our journey started in 1997, as a Private limited Company, with a lofty aim: to bring together industry stalwarts with a wide range of experience and to build a team that would help its clients scale new heights and go from strength to strength. We called ourselves GDA Trusteeship Limited. The Company started its operations from Pune, in the areas of ‘Debenture Trusteeship’ and ‘Management of Private Provident Funds’. We take pride being the first Non-Banking Private Sector Company registered by SEBI, as ‘Debenture Trustee’ in the year 1998. Over a span of 19 years, the team achieved a lot together – from being the first non-banking private sector company to receive a license from SEBI to operate as a leading trusteeship company which has created a strong identity in industry.
With an eye on the future, we decided to adopt new name as we step into our 20th year. A name that signifies not only our values but also what we have meant to scores of satisfied clients over the years: A catalyst that has facilitated and helped bring a lasting change in our clients’ business. It has also enlarged its sphere of activities to include sale of Software Escrow Services.
In the last decade company witnessed robust growth in its business and has spread its geographical presence outside Pune to Metro cities of Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru and Chennai.
