Advisory Board

Overcoming Challenges. Discovering Opportunities.

Foundation Holdings seeks to develop the education, healthcare and consumer sectors through the investment of human capital innovation and youth. Our company practises differentiated and focused investment strategies targeting India and GCC – a combined USD 4 trillion opportunity. While these sectors offer vast opportunities, they require deep-sector experience and leadership from established industry captains.

To overcome challenges and take advantage of opportunities, Foundations Holdings has brought together a team of extraordinary people from both business and civil society to form an experienced advisory council that brings operational excellence and value creation to both the company and its partners in the long term.

These senior advisors – with whom we have nurtured and developed close relationships over many years – are focused on developing the healthcare, education and consumer sectors as a force for social and economic good. They offer leadership, mentoring and coaching and provide practical assistance to drive operational and strategic transformations.

Offering key support in terms of evaluating new opportunities and advising our investment professionals during the transaction process, our advisors’ knowledge provides Foundation Holdings with a distinct competitive advantage.
