financial enterprise-wide knowledge management services. They provide fully customized knowledge services as well as flexible, preconfigured knowledge products and repositories. All knowledge services and products are tailored to meet the specific needs of corporations, consulting companies, and financial services firms

If it were a listed company in India I would probably call it a KPO. It is a limited liability company registered in Boston and so as of now I would say it does research and analysis for corporate, consultants and financial institutes across the world. It has a back end office in Mumbai because of the labor cost arbitrage. It has two other offices -Boston and London. Employee strength is not known.
