The Phoenix Fund

In our decades of experience with Investments and asset management we have learnt that the only constant in this complex world of Investments is ‘change’. Each asset class goes through cycles of highs and lows on a background of constantly changing rules of the game on account of technological change, changes in perception of intrinsic value etc. Knowing this and given the broad based understanding of various asset classes, we, at The Phoenix Fund, make investments across asset classes by positioning capital at the right end of each cycle. These have included investments in various stages of Equity - Listed Equity, Pre-IPO Equity, Private Equity, Angel & VC Capital; Real Estate both commercial and residential; Commodities, Debt & Art.

Our time tested Investment philosophy for long term consistent returns - "Buy Value & Build Value"


For Equity Investments – Our focus is to enable you to build your business and come in as partners who will not only provide capital but also passive or active advise as required. With expertise and ownership in a Legal Firm, Accounting Firm and an Investment Banking Firm we bring these skillsets through our in-house team.

We look to invest in quality companies, run by experts who are passionate, patient and progressive. Good governance and compliance with the law are non-negotiable traits we look for in all our investee companies.

The Phoenix Fund unlike most funds is not funded by LPs. Which means, there is no strict time horizon or pressure of exit. We invest for the long haul. We are a group of like-minded individuals who are eager to deploy their capital and time to assist investee companies reach the next level in their growth trajectory. The fund itself is managed by professionals with decades of experience.

For Other Asset Classes – we look to invest in quality, marketable assets at fair intrinsic value.
