Motilal Oswal Private Equity (“MOPE”) was founded in 2006 with a vision to become the most respected mid-market focused alternate asset manager in India. Motilal Oswal Financial Services  Ltd. (sponsor of MOPE), is a well-diversified, financial services company with a market capitalization of over Rs 45,000 million. From the outset, MOPE’s focus was the mid-market segment, where there was an acute need of capital, and where the MOFSL brand had significant leverage. Today, MOPE is managing and/or advising funds, with a combined corpus of over Rs,17,000 million across private equity and real estate.
