E13: Navroz Udwadia, Co-Founder of Falcon Edge talks about his journey while running a $4BN fund
What do romantic English poetry, law, business school, tennis and investments have in common? You wouldn’t know but when you mix them together, you can see the magic happen. If you want to know how to invest $4Bn, watch Navroz, the co-founder and Partner at Falcon Edge, talk about his mentality and discipline as he unravels a keen understanding of the fundamentals of investing and picking markets along with which entrepreneurs to back. Lamenting on the valuations in search of business, he instead tries to chart a path of investing by focussing on US, China and India markets. It amazing to see the differences in each as he focuses by identifying segments and markets that are characterised by a terrible buying experience and a fragmented supply, allowing for innovation to work. Understand how ecosystems are getting created in India, how the unit economics are brutal and how the unique demographic and cultural spread of India is creating an opportunity like no other. This is masterclass by the person who pummels his days with a desperate daily desire to compete, but having an aim to one day, give it back to society. The drive is almost terminator-esque but the power still comes from the heart beating, feeling and pushing him forward. Listen to a hippoBrain like no other.
