New York: Business process outsourcing (BPO) major Genpact Ltd has reported 33.5% decline in its net profit at $46.7 million for the third quarter ended 30 September.

We continued the disciplined execution of our strategy by focusing our resources and investments in our chosen verticals, geographies and service lines," Genpact president and chief executive officer (CEO) N.V. Tyagarajan said.

He added that the firm is ahead of its planned investments in client-facing teams and domain-led capability builds.
