Multiples is founded in my core belief in the infinite capacity of human potential to create value, developed over a career of over three decades. At Multiples, I aim to build a lasting, highly successful and reputed institution that will deliver the potential of alternative investments in India.
I teamed up with Renuka at the inception of Multiples. It has been, and continues to be an exhilarating journey as we have watched Multiples evolve from a two-person outfit operating from Renuka's residence to an established platform with a track record of success.
I joined Multiples in May 2010 after a 10 year stint with Citibank in structured finance and debt capital markets. I felt excited to embark on a new learning journey with people I had known and respected for more than a decade, and nervous about living upto the confidence reposed in me to succeed in a business that I had never done before.
I joined Multiples close to its inception in 2009, returning to investing in India after working with Sun Group in Private Equity in London.
Prior to Multiples, I had a private equity stint at ICICI Venture where I discovered my passion for investing. In addition, I worked with CRISIL, an S&P Company and with SBI Capital Markets, both of which gave me a peek into the inner workings of the Indian debt market.
I joined Multiples in 2016, and lead the firm's transactions in the technology and logistics sectors. I also spearhead the digital transformation initiative at the firm.
I first joined Multiples in 2013 as an Associate, where I was part of three transactions – Delhivery, South Indian Bank and Sara Sae. I moved to KKR in 2015 to be part of the Special Situations Group in India where I spent two years, before returning to Multiples in 2017.
I joined Multiples in late 2011 after spending 4 years across corporate & investment banking. At Multiples I have invested and evaluated opportunities across multiple sectors with focus on pharma, healthcare, logistics, business services and industrials.
Since I joined Multiples in 2016, I have played a key role in transactions in the technology sector.
Prior to joining Multiples in 2015, I was a journalist with CNBC-TV18, which taught me to identify impactful 'stories' by asking the right questions in interactions with businesses. This has held me in good stead as an investment professional as I interact with high-quality entrepreneurs and work with them closely in their journey to create value.
I joined Multiples in 2016 after working at IL&FS Investment Managers, where I was engaged in investment evaluation, financial analysis, documentation and portfolio management across healthcare, technology and industrial sectors. Prior to that, I was part of CRISIL where I rated over 100 companies & was named a Young Business Leader by The Economic Times in 2015.
My early encounters with business have ranged from managing the family business during a crisis and working on IPOs during my investment banking days. These diverse experiences taught me precious lessons in leadership, taking ideas to execution, negotiations, and adapting to the unknown.
My passion for understanding diverse sectors and deciphering complex business models drove me to pursue a CA degree, and a 3 year articleship at PwC. I thereafter spent 2 years at IIM-Ahmedabad, and came away with a more holistic, 360-degree view of businesses.
I joined Multiples in 2011, and have now been working for over 10 years in the Indian private equity industry. My career objective is to succeed in a dynamic corporate environment, with a focus on enhancing my knowledge and skills and utilizing them in creating value for the organisation.
I joined Multiples in 2015 and focus on forging and nurturing long-term partnerships with investors. I also champion the ESG (Environment, Social and Governance) vision, initiatives and engagement with its portfolio companies. In this role, I find myself in the midst of the action, witnessing the dynamic changes that India is undergoing across sectors and interacting with some of the finest minds in private equity at Multiples.
I joined Multiples in 2017 after spending more than 5 years in the Strategic Resources Group at TA Associates, a global growth private equity fund, based out of Mumbai. Prior to working at TA Associates, I spent around 8 years with Deloitte and KPMG in their transaction services and assurance practice spread across offices in India, Singapore and UK.
In my career spanning nearly forty years, I have been associated with the Stressed Assets space for almost two decades. I've keenly watched the perception of the sector change from that of 'a Siberia for prodigal employees' to one where openings are keenly sought.
Looking back at my 12 years of Private Equity experience, I most enjoy the sense of ownership, responsibility and the intensity for which it calls. To combine that approach with investing into stressed situations, which is only now evolving as an investment class with tremendous promise, is something I relish and I’m eagerly looking forward to being in on the action as it unfurls.
Investing in distressed asset domain is all about striking a balance between listening to hard facts and also empathizing with the situation and people associated with it. An opportunity to learn from a wide spectrum of situations and construct a holistic solution can be very exciting.
