"IDFC Alternatives is like a part of our family. We wanted an investor who would help us grow by challenging us with constructive advice. The journey started with IDFC Alternatives being our equity partner, and today we share a common dream of providing 'world class infrastructure' for India. We cherish this long - standing relationship."

G M Rao, Chairman, GMR Group


"It was important for us to have an investor who would proactively help us expand our business in education and healthcare, while at the same time appreciate the constraints of the sectors that we are in. IDFC Alternatives has played that role with us and, in a short time, has built very close relationships with the promoters and the management team."

Ramdas Pai, Chairman, Manipal Education and Medical Group


"IDFC Alternatives has played a key role in our company. The team helped us refine our business model, strengthen our brand with strong, independent directors, raise additional capital through a pre- IPO private placement and, subsequently, complete our landmark IPO. It has also played a key role in helping us expand our business beyond the state of Gujarat."

D J Pandian, Managing Director, Gujarat State Petronet


"IDFC Alternatives came in when we needed a strong financial partner to assist us at Pipavav Port. The IDFC / IDFC Alternatives platform worked very closely with APM Terminals to ensure that we received the necessary approvals for a successful restructuring of our company."

Hans - Ole Madsen, Chairman, Gujarat Pipavav Port


"IDFC PE had always encouraged us to raise the bar, and supported us in all our endeavors. Their ability to take prompt and decisive action makes it very easy for us to work with them. They not only kept the faith during the 2008 meltdown, but increased efforts towards value creation. Their role in understanding and growing our company is a prime example of nurturing innovation."

Syed Safawi, CEO, Viom Networks
