Bain Capital, a leading global private multi-asset alternative investment firm today announced that it has agreed to acquire 24.98% equity stake in IIFL Wealth Management Limited (“IIFLWAM”), one of the largest and fastest growing wealth and asset management firms in India from General Atlantic Singapore Fund Pte. Ltd. and FIH Mauritius Investments Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Fairfax India Holdings Corporation.

The transaction is subject to regulatory and other customary approvals.

Karan Bhagat, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, IIFLWAM, said: “Since our inception 13 years ago, we continue to service our clients with unflinching commitment to innovation, consistency, transparency as well as to provide a trusted platform for all their Wealth and Asset Management needs."

"Bain Capital’s investment is a testament to our strong leadership franchise in the financial services space, and in our team’s ability to continue to execute and grow the business to scale. We look forward to having them on board, Karan Bhagat added.

Pawan Singh, Managing Director at Bain Capital, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Karan, Yatin and the management team of IIFL Wealth.  They have built the premier brand in wealth and asset management in India on the back of innovation, customer centricity and consistent performance.
