We also lead transactions greater than USD 40mn through co-investment from our reputed Limited Partners, Kotak's international relationships and/or other Private Equity Funds.
While the Kotak Group has been involved in Private Equity Funds in India since 1997, to bring a sharper focus to the Group's Alternative Assets management strategy, Kotak Mahindra Bank initiated its first structured third party Private Equity Fund in early 2005. Since then, the Alternative Assets management business of the Group has grown to around USD 1.4 billion under management across two asset classes namely – Private Equity & Real Estate, both led by independent investment teams.
