Schroders Capital has appointed Ankita Baheti as an investment director on its Asia private equity (PE) team.
Based in Singapore, Baheti will focus on the secondaries market, leveraging her background in finance and an eight-year stint encompassing diverse roles across various sectors, including consumer, information technology-enabled services and healthcare.
Before joining the company, she served as vice-president at TPG NewQuest in Mumbai, India, where her role saw her evaluate and transact a number of Indian secondary investments.
Baheti will work closely with fellow Singapore-based investment director for PE David Bajada and the wider Asian PE team based across Beijing, Shanghai, Seoul, Singapore and Zurich to further broaden the footprint and activity of the company in Asia.
The PE practice is seeking to bolster its Singapore presence further, with plans to increase headcount in the coming months.
“Baheti’s extensive sector expertise and secondary execution track record perfectly align with our strategy,” says Rainer Ender, the company’s global head of PE. “Her appointment is a testament to our resolve, ensuring that we continue to stay ahead of the curve and further capitalize on the dynamism of these markets.”
