ALTERNATIVE ASSET ADVISORS
We are India’s leading alternatives platform with over $4bn of assets under management or advise. We Connect Capital to Yield by investing in scalable and sustainable opportunities in India that deliver attractive risk adjusted returns.
India has emerged as an attractive investment destination, and alternatives assets are emerging as one of the fastest growing segments, within the Indian financial markets.
India offers attractive yields to private debt and real asset investors. As the economy grows to $5tn, demand for credit is expected to grow by 2.0 – 2.5X. The Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (IBC) has helped to revolutionize credit enforcement and improved the credit culture. A stable regulatory and policy framework coupled with a drive for monetisation of assets is creating a large investment opportunity in infrastructure. In addition, close-ended asset management vehicles have emerged as the preferred option for long-term private market investments.
Our objective is to offer innovative and differentiated products by leveraging the Edelweiss Group platform with its strong investment capabilities, for superior investment performance. Our seasoned and dedicated investment teams manage funds across four distinct strategies – Performing Credit, Real Estate Credit, Stressed Assets and Infrastructure Yield.
We count on a broad range of global institutions, including pension funds, insurance companies, large family offices and ultra-high net worth individuals in India, as our partners and investors.
Our Investee Companies
We seek investment opportunities across sectors in India, in growth as well as stressed situations. We are focused on investing with promoters and entrepreneurs, whose objectives are well aligned with our investment thesis. We are also focused on generating stable yields for our investors, through investment in high quality infrastructure assets having long-term contracts, with credible counterparties.
We strive to create a positive impact for our stakeholders – clients, investee companies, employees and the society. We provide capital for growth and revival of companies and sectors underserved by traditional providers. Our investments generate regular cash flows effectively supporting pensioners and insurance holders globally. ESG considerations play an important role in our investment processes.
