In ancient Indian mythology, Airavat was a multi-tusked white elephant considered to be the guardian of heaven, and symbolized wisdom.
Inspired by its mythological namesake, Airavat Capital seeks to be a guardian of its investors’ wealth, and to help create long-term value by employing wisdom, prudence and patience in the face of fear, greed and emotions that often drive capital markets. The firm advises and manages pools of capital from international and domestic investors to back great emerging companies in the Indian small, mid and micro-cap universe. Deeply influenced by the founders’ background in private equity and venture capital, the firm adopts differentiated levels of alignment, rigor and long-term focus in its approach to public market investing.
We adopt a research-oriented approach that emphasizes proprietary, bottom-up work focused on business insights and diligence on management alignment.
