EQT Asia Fund, which has a total corpus of $10 billion, will focus on investing in mid-market companies in India across sectors such as healthcare, consumer, industrials, and technology.

The fund has already made a few investments in India, including a $100 million investment in digital healthcare company PharmEasy in 2021.

India is a key growth market for EQT and we see significant opportunities for investment in the country,” said Christian Sinding, CEO of EQT.

“We are committed to supporting Indian businesses as they grow and scale.”

EQT’s decision to invest in India comes at a time when the country’s economy is growing at a rapid pace.

The Indian economy is expected to grow by 8.7% in the current financial year, according to the International Monetary Fund.

The Indian private equity market is also growing rapidly. The total value of private equity deals in India in the first half of 2022 was $14 billion, up from $10 billion in the same period last year.

EQT is not the only foreign private equity firm that is looking to invest in India.

Other firms that have made recent investments in India include Blackstone Group, Carlyle Group, and KKR & Co.

The increased interest from foreign private equity firms in India is a sign of the country’s growing economic attractiveness. India is a large and growing market with a young and dynamic population. The country also has a strong entrepreneurial ecosystem.
