How do we add value

To excel in an ever-changing market environment is a daunting task. And it is often common to lose focus of the larger potential while managing day-to-day business challenges.

At Fides, we understand business challenges and bring in a vision, strategic expertise, hands-on operational excellence and growth perspective.

As entrepreneurial investors we seek the inherent potential of the business to identify areas of growth that can be leveraged through financial and/or operational transformation and opening up new markets wherever applicable thereby working alongside management.

In every business, there are new opportunities that can be captured and scaled.

Our primary aim is to work alongside the management to dig deeper into the business and identify these opportunities and to transform them, thereby leveraging our operational experience with hands-on support.

At Fides, we also understand the component of growth and technology transfer to emerging markets. Our value add is in diverse expertise and well-established local networks in Asia, particularly in India.
