A leading financial inclusion focused private debt fund manager from India

Northern Arc Investments is the fund management vertical and a wholly owned subsidiary of Northern Arc Capital

Since being set up in 2014, we have grown to be one of the leading private debt fund managers in India managing over INR 30.48 billion in investor commitments.

In line with the work and ecosystem created by our parent company Northern Arc Capital, we facilitate investments that ensure easy access-to-finance for companies that have a demonstrable track record in increasing the penetration of financial services in India. Our investment strategy is centered around making impact-oriented yet returns-focused investments in a number of key financial inclusion themed sectors, such as Microfinance, Affordable Housing, Small Business Loans, Vehicle Loans, Agri-business Loans and Corporate Finance. New sectors are added over time based on the group’s strategy of identifying newer areas which enable us to fulfill our longstanding mission of bringing about easy, reliable and sustainable access to finance for the un-served and under-served population in India.

Over the years, we have developed significant expertise in presenting sustainable solutions to investors through our funds, by providing multiple investment strategies (single/multi-sector focus), varying tenures (ranging from 3.5 years to 10 years) and liquidity preferences (regular coupon pay-outs or bullet payments). We fully understand that impact creation cannot be sustained unless it offers meaningful returns for investors; all our funds have consistently delivered well above their targeted returns.

We adhere to the highest standards of fiduciary responsibilities with the best interests of our investors in mind: ensuring active portfolio management to meet our objectives, transparent reporting on returns and impact measurement to our investors, and building in one of the lowest fee structures in the industry into all our products.
