Advent International has been investing in India since 2007. We initially established a dedicated India team based in London and in 2009 opened a fully staffed office in Mumbai. Our local team has extensive investment experience both in India and globally across Advent’s core sectors.
In addition to advising on investments in Indian companies, the Mumbai team works with Advent professionals worldwide on international investments with Indian expansion opportunities. The team also works with Advent’s existing global portfolio companies on growth strategies and acquisitions in the Indian market. Examples include Skillsoft’s acquisition of e-learning business Element K in 2011 and TransUnion’s acquisition of a controlling stake in credit information company CIBIL in 2013.
Advent India PE Advisors Private Limited provides advisory services to Advent International Cyprus Ltd., which in turn provides advisory services to Advent International, L.P..
