The Firm

BharCap is a private investment firm investing in businesses across the financial services sector with a focus in specialty finance; asset and wealth management; insurance and insurance services; financial technology and tech-enabled business services.

BharCap was founded in 2021 by Bharath Srikrishnan, Ethan Wang, Jim Rutherfurd, Samir Mohin, Kevin Becker and Ryan Gean. Five of the BharCap founders previously worked together at Pine Brook Partners.

BharCap is currently in the process of investing $1.75 billion of available client capital and invests across the capital structure into equity securities, debt securities, and financial assets.

The Investment Strategy

BharCap has a differentiated investment strategy designed to maximize risk-adjusted returns. The BharCap investment strategy is predicated on partnering with 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 identify trends that are creating disruption and / or growth in the financial services sector and 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 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.

Commitment to Diversity & Inclusion

BharCap believes that it is one of the largest start-up minority-owned and controlled private investment firms. We are committed to cultivating and preserving a culture of diversity and inclusion. We recognize that an environment rich in different backgrounds, perspectives and experiences enhances our business decisions, achievements and impact on our communities. Many of our founding partners are first- or second-generation American citizens. We promote diversity and inclusion at our portfolio companies and strive to have at least one diverse representative in the C-Suite or on the Board of every BharCap portfolio company.
