The Investment Strategy
BharCap has a differentiated investment strategy designed to maximize risk-adjusted returns. The BharCap investment strategy is predicated on partnering with exceptional management teams to capitalize on powerful industry trends. We have a proprietary research process, leveraging our CEO Network, to identify the key themes impacting the financial services and fintech sectors over the next several years.
BharCap seeks to (1) identify trends that are creating significant disruption and / or high growth in the financial services and fintech sectors and (2) leverage our long-term industry relationships to invest in companies that capitalize on the identified trend(s) in either growth equity or buyout transactions.
We often utilize our CEO Network, which consists of a network of former financial services and fintech CEOs or C-level executives to identify key trends or meet potential targets.
We believe that our rigorous, thematic idea generation process, proactive direct origination effort and our CEO Network have historically enabled the majority of our investments to be proprietary in nature, which differentiates us from our competitors.
Commitment to Diversity & Inclusion
BharCap has a deep commitment to promoting the economic prosperity of minorities and immigrants of all races, colors or creeds. Mr. Srikrishnan and Mr. Wang are first generation American citizens, as are several members of our CEO Network. We will promote diversity and inclusion at our portfolio companies and on their Boards and have a corporate policy to have at least one person of color, female or transgender representative on the Board of every BharCap portfolio company.Read More
