VIKASA is a leader in high growth market segments.

CLEAN ENERGY

VIKASA has prioritized investments that support global net zero policies and energy transition. Replacing fossil fuels with low-carbon technologies, including electric vehicles, will cause a rapid, sustained increase in demand for energy metals. The market is ripe for clean energy investments as we secure the supply chain for the resources and technology imperative to this industry.

 

VIKASA focuses on the commodities used in electric batteries and renewable power systems such as lithium, copper, nickel sulfide, graphite, cobalt, manganese, rare earths, and more. VIKASA invests globally, targeting assets in jurisdictions with proven mineral endowment, supportive governments and robust legal framework, with preference for the U.S.

FINTECH

VIKASA has a unique understanding of this industry as both a financial services operator and investor. The rapid and sustained rise in mobile and digital financial services coupled with innovative technology, such as blockchain, has produced radical disruption with over $500bn in venture capital funding and emerging government policies in over 100 countries.

 

VIKASA believes that early-stage venture is the best investment approach to capture this ripe market opportunity. New technologies have created favorable conditions for new enterprise, such as lower barriers to enter the market, increased collaboration and convergence with blended approaches. There is a highly competitive market for startups and entrepreneurs ready to shock outdated infrastructure in the financial services industry, and it is best to invest early before valuations get too high.

INDIA

VIKASA has more than a decade of experience investing in Indian capital markets, outperforming benchmarks and adding alpha with niche expertise and global infrastructure, including offshore financial centers in Mumbai, Mauritius, Seychelles and Singapore.

 

India is a rapidly growing economy that could soon usurp China’s position as the largest emerging market in the world. This growth is driven by economic reforms and a large consumption base. Boasting the largest online population in the world, India has seen compelling investment opportunities arising from sustained market drivers in the global economy, such as digitization and mobilization.

 

Furthermore, India’s IPO market is booming and VIKASA is positioned to offer our investors access. In this recent article, Mr. Vinit Shah, Partner, India notes, “We are very optimistic and will stay invested in the likes of Nykaa, PayTM, Mobikwik and more.” Much of the attention in this arena is due to a young, affluent and tech-savvy investor base – fueling the rise in technology IPOs – which aligns well with VIKASA’s tenured focus.
