IVCA - Indian Venture and Alternate Capital Association

Established in 1993, the Indian Venture and Alternate Capital Association (IVCA) is a non-profit organization that serves as a prominent apex industry body dedicated to promoting the alternate capital industry and nurturing a thriving investment environment in India. IVCA is resolutely committed to bolstering the ecosystem by advocating regulatory interventions, facilitating constructive dialogues with the Government of India, policymakers, and regulators. This collaborative approach fosters increased entrepreneurial activity, innovation, job creation, and contributes to positioning India as a preeminent fund management hub.

With 330+ members and a combined AUM of over $260 billion, IVCA's esteemed membership comprises the most active domestic and global entities, including VCs, PEs, Infrastructure Funds, Real Estate Funds, Credit Funds, Limited Partners, Investment Companies, Family Offices, Corporate VCs, CAT III Funds, Hedge Funds, and Knowledge Partners.

Within the SEBI registered AIF landscape, 44% of all registered AIFs are IVCA members. This is not considering the inactive AIFs, as we understand that a certain population of AIFs are inactive. Within the total IVCA Members, 70% of them manage AIFs.

IVCA stands as the sole industry association for private equity and venture capital funds engaged in investments within India, and it is collectively owned by industry members. IVCA holds legal registration as a Section 8 entity, which signifies a non-profit organization. Vistra ITCL (India) Limited is the custodian of IVCA’s trust held shares.


Vision and Mission

As we commemorate 75 years of India's sovereignty, the 'India Opportunity' narrative is echoing on the global stage. At IVCA, our vision is not only about fostering a vibrant investing ecosystem, but also pivoting towards the ideals of 'Atmanirbhar Bharat' (self-reliant India). This vision aligns with our goals to onshore the offshore initiatives and underscores the importance of creating domestic pools of capital. It is the robust contributions and unwavering support of diverse asset classes that are instrumental in catalysing India's ambitious objective to ascend as a USD 5 trillion economy by 2025 and bolster India's stature as an enticing destination for both global and domestic funds.

To actualize this vision, we've set tangible objectives. We aim to mobilize pools of capital, create a favourable regulatory environment, and drive positive change for the industry. This involves creation of dialogue platforms and opportunities for the PE/VC ecosystem which are focused on the promotion of best investment governance practices, research driven advocacy with regulators to provide inputs that enable a competitive policy environment, and networking opportunities between investors and high growth companies.

Investor protection and enablement of free and fair markets is core to the associations thought process and we strive to achieve the same via all activities and initiatives that we carry out.
