Edelweiss Asset Reconstruction Company Ltd.

Edelweiss has India’s most diversified stressed asset business platform comprising an Asset Reconstruction Company, 3rd party funds, NBFC and Turnaround management team.

In a short span of 5 years, it has become the largest stressed asset investor in India with investment of more than Rs. 5000 Cr. The business philosophy is best encapsulated as “Resolve, Reconstruct & Revive” with main objective of ‘Revival’ or ‘Asset Reconstruction’ in its right spirit, against asset stripping. The business has grown sustainably under the guidance of a professional and distinguished board and the leadership of Mr. Siby Antony. Edelweiss has invested in several large assets and is spearheading the effort to revive and reconstruct assets of national importance across industries like steel, infrastructure, ports, textile, sugar and construction. Edelweiss prefers to adopt an ‘Active Partner’ approach and has built strong operations turnaround capability in house along with formation of an advisory board of eminent experts from steel, power, infra & manufacturing streams. The aim is to bring fresh perspective to revival of assets through acquisition of majority stake in debt to have absolute control on resolution, providing financial support necessary for restart and sustenance, handholding of company through the revival phase and leveraging Edelweiss’s local & global reach and financial expertise. Edelweiss has recently entered a long term partnership with Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec (CDPQ), a USD 250 Bn Canadian pension fund and Edelweiss along with CDPQ is looking to invest about Rs. 10000 to 12000 Cr over next 3-4 years in stressed assets in India.
