Antilles Advisors is an India-focused Emerging Markets Investment Advisory firm and has built up a portfolio of investments in India over the past 5 years. Antilles’ first investment in India was in a Private Sector Bank, India’s fastest growing in the mid-sized Banks segment by KPMG.
Recently, this Bank (called RBL Bank) was recognized by the World Economic Forum as a Global Growth Company, 2014. Antilles has an unrealized return of 49% IRR in this investment.
Antilles’ specialty is in identifying investment opportunities in India that are grossly under-priced (with respect to its value) or because of some structural market issues and invest in these opportunities for a 5-year period. Due to our unique legal structure of investments, Investors can make very high returns (in the range of 30%+ p.a.) and receive these returns tax-free in the USA.
Current Investment opportunities include various companies in diverse sectors (e.g. Infrastructure, consumption/ FMCG, E-Commerce/ Technology) that have the potential to generate high returns over the next 3-5 year period.
The Principal in Antilles Advisors has very deep business and commercial relationships in India that allow him to discover and invest in these opportunities before the broader market discovers these opportunities. One of the most promising investment opportunities include an Utility firm that is trading at US$ 40 million market cap, when the company has assets worth US$ 2 billion.
