Headland Capital plans India focused VC fund

Headland Capital Partners,  formerly known as HSBC Private Equity (Asia) Ltd is buoyant about the Indian business environement,  and is planning to launch a dedicated India-focused VC(Venture Capital) fund. Although the size of the fund is not decided, sources say it could be in the range of $70-100 million. Apart from setting up an India-dedicated fund, Headland is reported to allocate 30 per cent of its $230-million Headland Asian Ventures Fund 3 to India. Also, Headland Capital is all set to close its seventh investment, around $10 million, in a telecom service providing company in a couple of weeks. Headland manages $2.4 billion globally.

 

George A Raffini, managing partner, Headland Capital Partners Ltd told media that they were exploring the possibility of setting up an India-dedicated fund and other regional-focus funds.

 

“In India, both PE and VC funds grow rapidly, which is the reflection of economic growth and reflection of capital requirements. However, we see more potential in the area of $5-25 million investments. We see great potential in the investments in SME sector, which finds money-lending is difficult,” Raffini further said.
