India Capital Growth management team strengthened – Ocean Dial India hires Tridib Pathak as co-head of equities alongside Gaurav Narain.
Tridib Pathak’s career in the Indian financial markets spans 30 years. Originally he appraised project finance and term lending for a public sector bank. He then moved across to a research focused role initially as a senior credit rating analyst, before joining UBS Securities (India) where he was responsible for oil and gas equity research across the whole of Asia. Tridib moved to become an investment manager in 1999, managing domestic equity portfolios for a local subsidiary of a large US manager of mutual funds (open-ended funds).
Between 2004 & 2009 he was chief investment officer of two domestic asset management companies, both of which were also joint ventures with international managers (the second one was Fullerton Fund Management, a Government of Singapore owned investment entity).
After a break, he joined Enam Asset Management as a senior portfolio manager early in 2015. While at Enam he managed open ended funds for both domestic and international investors, as well as being a senior member of the investment team that managed segregated India equity portfolios for some of the leading institutions globally.
Ocean Dial say that over his long career Tridib has maintained a consistent investment style, based on a process orientated, bottom up, fundamental approach to stock picking and portfolio construction, regardless of benchmark considerations and with a long term outlook.
Tridib joins Ocean Dial as co-head of equities alongside Gaurav Narain. The plan is that he will assume full responsibility for Ocean Dial’s flagship Gateway to India Fund, a daily dealing Dublin domiciled UCITS ICAV, which runs a bottom up, concentrated, multi cap approach. Gaurav will remain as the lead adviser to India Capital Growth.
