Building your India portfolio since 1990 on a foundation of ethics, integrity & disciplined investment research

For over 25 years Quantum has been at the forefront of responsible investing as one of India’s most respected investment firms. With over USD 3 billion of AuM, Quantum leads the advancement of ESG principles across India, having introduced our Integrity Screening in the investment process in 1996.
As pioneers of responsible investing, we believe man-made CO2 emissions have resulted in an increase and intensity of natural disasters which threaten our known way of life. We treat the assessment of CO2 as a risk-mitigation exercise and measure how our portfolio companies are behaving. We continue to listen and learn. But there is one thing we are certain about: long term allocators of capital must invest in India for potentially attractive rates of return, while actively assessing and avoiding non-financial risk.

Building Your India Portfolio SINCE 1990

As India’s first institutional equity research house founded by Ajit Dayal in January 1990, we have used our deep understanding of the Indian economy and markets to advise some of the most respected foreign investors. Backed by the strength of our in-house ESG capabilities and proprietary scoring system, Quantum is at the forefront of advancing ESG principles across India.


Our “Value with Engagement” approach to investing has a 20 year audited track record with over USD 3 billion in AuM.

​Our India Responsible Return (Q-IRR) investment strategy is unique in that the portfolio construction is based on our assessment of a company’s ESG scores.
