VCCircle India Limited PartnersSummit 2020

Until a few months ago India had everything going for it. Despite the noise around global trade wars, India was basking in the glory of being the fastest-growing major economy. It had re-elected the ruling party to ensure policy continuity, the stock markets were at record highs and the pain of stressed assets had started to ease.

But the narrative has changed. Growth has slowed, consumer sentiment has turned sour, the stressed assets toxicity has spread from banks to the shadow banking system and an oil crisis is threatening to trip the economy further.

    Panel Discussion 1: Portfolio balancing and risk management

    LPs have tried various mix of direct, co-investment and platform strategies to approach emerging markets like India. What is working best and why? With some LPs seeking more direct investments, what sort of risk management process have they put in place? How do LPs manage the potential conflict of interest while approaching direct deals with existing GP relationships in the same market?

    Panel Discussion 2: Due diligence: Under the scanner

    There is a constant talk about better alignment of interest between LPs and GPs. Is there a gap to be addressed in data sharing and disclosures by GPs? How is the LP due diligence process on GPs evolving? How are GPs imbibing the ESG goals of LPs? And is there a clear understanding on how to define, monitor and measure these goals?

    Panel Discussion 4: Portfolio diversification in alternatives by domestic LPs

    Unlike in developed economies, public markets and credit in emerging economies pose a challenge for GPs in competing for rupee capital from HNIs and corporate houses. Are GPs making the right product pitch to local investors? How do local LPs weigh the risk-reward ratio for alternatives compared to other asset classes?

    Panel Discussion 5: Family offices rebuilding foundation of domestic LP base

    High net-worth individuals and family offices have become a key source pool for domestic fund managers to raise capital. How do family offices view the PE-VC fund ecosystem and how is their portfolio allocation changing to incorporate alternatives as an asset class? What would they like to see before signing bigger cheques more frequently?

    Rishabh Mariwala, Founder, Soap Opera

    Panel Discussion 6: Venture hygiene check

    VC deal making in India is picking up pace again. How are VC funds dealing with renewed talk of a valuation bubble with some new ventures by successful entrepreneurs pocketing disproportionate sums? With SoftBank facing a reality check on the big cheques it has been signing down the years, what does it mean for the larger venture ecosystem from an exit lens? Are LPs keener to see specialised micro funds rather than larger-than-life sector-agnostic VCs?

    Speakers:
    Nikhil Vora, Founder & CEO, Sixth Sense Ventures
    Pankaj Makkar, Managing Director, Bertelsmann India Investments
    Mohan Kumar, Founder & Managing Partner, Avataar Venture Partners
