India Resurgence Fund (IndiaRF) is a leading India-focused distressed investment platform, sponsored by Piramal Enterprises Limited (‘PEL’) and Bain Capital Credit (‘BCC’), which seeks to provide attractive, long-term, risk-adjusted returns to investors primarily by making distressed to control investments in Indian companies.
The fund targets to invest across diverse sectors from industrial to infrastructure to consumer, where a turnaround of particular business from recapitalisation and operational turnaround can be scripted, on back of attractive positioning of such business on the competitive landscape.
The platform leverages on the combined strength of BCC’s global acumen and PEL’s deep in-country experience, goodwill and reputation, to create and offer attractive value propositions for global marquee investors. We are currently investing from our $629 mm IndiaRF Fund I, raised from international institutional investors, high net worth investors and family offices. We have the ability to tap additional capital through co-invest arrangements with our Sponsors and Investors to address the capital requirements of our investees.
IndiaRF seeks to make investments in assets which are in distress through purchase of existing debt and equity securities through bankruptcy courts or directly from lenders or newly issued securities, so as to take control over the turnaround of such assets.
IndiaRF has the unique ability and expertise to deploy flexible capital through bespoke structures that are tailored to each business that it invests in. The success of this platform is built on a highly rigorous approach that utilizes deep industry/company insights and significant engagement to drive holistic turnarounds.
