2020 was a rollercoaster ride for India’s financial markets and the pandemic continues to have a significant impact on the country’s mid-market private equity activities. However, India’s economic rebound in the second half of 2020 has continued to drive very strong sentiment in public markets to the extent that experts expect private equity investment to bounce back to pre-pandemic levels in 2021. In the second episode of our special series Future of Dealmaking Season 2: Capital Privado, we take a deep dive to explore the mid-market segment of the Indian economy as an investment opportunity for private equity players and discover how private investment has helped this sector grow over the years. In a panel discussion, Vishal Tulsyan – CEO and MD of Motilal Oswal Private Equity along with Nitin Potdar and Upendra Nath Sharma, partners at law firm JSA open up on trends in the mid-market private equity space. According to Tulsyan, India has largely been a mid-market play with more than 80% of deals in terms of number of transactions being mid-market companies. However, he also alludes to the fact that India is a capital starved country and needs capital both in terms of equity and debt. To this Nitin Potdar adds that while private equity has proved to be a comparatively smart form of capital by bringing in a broader perspective in companies, old economy promoters are still hesitant to take private equity due to its robustness and slightly assertive nature. As the conversation progresses Upendra Sharma reveals how due diligence has changed significantly as more deals get struck in a virtual environment. Tune in to know more. Read more

The Covid-19 fallout has cast a shadow on longer-term meat consumption as restaurants have been shut and there has been a sharper focus on the negative environmental and health fallout of over-eating of meat. One alternative is lab-created meat that gives the same cultural and sensory experience of meat. This is exciting in India where many vegetarian and non-vegetarians are looking at meat consumption with a more exacting filter. Cultivated meat, which consists of farming cells directly instead of slaughtering animals, is coming to market. In this episode of "The Future of" we speak on The Future of Meat with Varun Deshpande, MD of the Good Food Institute, India, and part of an international network of non-profits. Read more

While the current public health crisis and increasing climate change events have intensified the focus on ESG, the benefits of ESG compliance go much deeper than managing reputational risk. ESG standards weaved into the corporate fabric help a company plan for long-term growth. Further, investors believe companies incorporating ESG risk management are better long-term custodians of investor capital, offer greater downside protection and can generate better long-term, risk-adjusted returns. One key for a business to work towards ESG compliance is by greening their buildings. Greening a firm’s workplace contributes to improved employee productivity and better bottom lines via a healthier atmosphere for employees and reducing a firm’s carbon footprint. Against this increasingly important backdrop and to understand how leading corporations are increasing ESG scores, as well as to comprehend how smaller firms can take on a greater leadership role by using existing tools, listen to Chris Pyke, Senior Vice President, Product at ArcSkoru, GBCI; Jagvinder Pinny Mann, Senior Portfolio Manager, Microsoft; Rajat Malhotra, Executive Director, Head of Engineering Operations-APAC Corporate Solutions, Jones Lang LaSalle and Gautam Dey - Director, DLF Power and Services Ltd. in an insightful panel discussion moderated by Shrija Agrawal.
