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.
I have been an investment professional for ~20 years focused on identifying and nurturing investments across listed and unlisted universe. I have enjoyed my journey of partnering with high quality entrepreneurs and working along with them to create stakeholder value over the life cycle of investments. The enduring relationships that I have forged with many amazing persons has been an incredibly satisfying part of my investing journey so far.
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 September 2020, with a 10-year experience in Investment Banking & Private Equity, successfully managing transactions of collectively over US$1bn. I have diverse experience across several products including Debt Capital Markets, M&A and Equity Capital markets across Deutsche Bank, CLSA, Everstone and EY, which has helped me form a well-rounded view of the investing ecosystem.
I joined Multiples in 2017. Prior to that, I spent time as an entrepreneur in a family-run business and as an investment banker at Kotak Investment Banking. These diverse experiences, along with an MBA from the Indian School of Business (Dean’s List), drove a passion for understanding businesses and working with entrepreneurs in building new leaders.
I joined Multiples in 2020 and graduated from Indian Institute of Management Calcutta in 2018. Prior to Multiples, I was at Bessemer Venture Partners, India for 2 years. I have also worked for a year in an analytics role at Citibank. I enjoy learning about new businesses and technology and love interacting and working closely with the smartest entrepreneurs. Given the outstanding team of investors and entrepreneurs that Multiples has backed, I am thrilled to be part of the team here. Outside work, I enjoy watching football, cricket and tennis and solving math puzzles.
I joined Multiples in 2021 after four years in Investment Banking, most recently with J.P. Morgan in New York and London, where I focused on Technology, Media and Telecoms companies. Prior to this, my MBA from Yale School of Management allowed me to have well-rounded view of the various facets of a business, learn from the unique experiences of my peers and expand my professional network. My global experiences have instilled in me a curiosity to understand industries and business models, and closely work with entrepreneurs in their journey.
I joined Multiples in 2021 after about five years in investment banking. Prior to joining Multiples, I was with the M&A team of Citi, where I was part of transactions across sectors including retail, healthcare and industrials. Prior to Citi, I spent about 2 years at Avendus Capital, focused on advising private equity and strategic clients in enterprise technology and services space. While the opportunity to be part of value creation journeys by partnering with high quality entrepreneurs is what drew me towards private equity, Multiples’ differentiated approach to investing through its focus on people, combined with the team’s demonstrated track record in the Indian market is what excites me most about the firm.
I joined Multiples in October 2021. I am a Chartered Accountant and an MBA from IIM Bangalore. As a chartered accountant, my experience of working with Ernst & Young in their Audit practice led to an interest in analysing financial statements. I enjoy understanding businesses and am particularly fascinated by how market leaders separate themselves from the rest of their competitors. I look forward to work with high-quality businesses and entrepreneurs that are the hallmark of the Multiples portfolio. Outside work, I enjoy reading and watching movies. I also closely follow the Boston Celtics.
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.
