The Fund invests long-term capital into its portfolio companies.

Since 1969, and over the last 50 years, Essar has also been dedicated to developing the core sectors of the Indian economy through Greenfield and Brownfield investments. Essar promoters took a conscious decision to invest in these sectors and make India self-sufficient. They pioneered the private sector’s entry into capital intensive businesses, like Steel, Oil & Gas, Ports and Power, and despite overwhelming odds, persisted to complete their committed investments. Essar is one of the earliest and largest contributors to the Make in India, as well as Skill India, initiatives of the government. Not only has it created world-class assets, but also nurtured a skilled workforce with the ability to operate these assets.

Since 2010, Essar Global Fund undertook an investment programme of over Rs 120,000 crore in the sectors of Energy, Infrastructure, Metals & Mining, and Services, which is the highest investment made by any Indian company in the core sectors of the economy. It created world-class assets that have attracted the best global companies, like Vodafone, American Tower Corporation and Teleperformance, etc., to invest in India and infuse FDI of more than $32 billion.   

The Fund has a global portfolio of fully operational assets with investments in Indonesia, United Kingdom, North America and Africa, apart from India. Essar continues to evaluate business opportunities across geographies with a focus on building long-term partnerships.
