"Our mantra is to construct a portfolio that offers multiple ways to win and powers massive home runs."

Riding out economic cycles, investing across asset classes, and geographies have given us multiple advantages and made us a well-rounded asset allocator and investor. We invested during the dot-com meltdown, our portfolio had minor ripples during the great recession, and our investment strategies generated stellar returns riding the growth waves of emerging markets.

Investment Philosophy
Thematic investments in multi-asset classes.

Linus Capital enjoys the distinction, among a handful of its peers, to have invested in multiple-asset classes (Technology, Real Estate, Special Opportunities, and Digital Assets) over the last decade in India.

Investment Philosophy


Multi-asset Strategies

With a broader pallet of investment options we make higher return decisions and multiple ways to win.

Harvest & Grow

We pair investments by matching cash flow from real-assets to build moonshots that can generate higher alpha.

Platform Investments

Placing platform bets, making add-on investments, and turbocharge growth is a key peg of our investment strategy.

Disruptive Innovation

We are on a quest to build a portfolio with the next wave of high-growth bleeding-edge technology companies.

Ambitious course we had set for the roaring '20s

01

10x AUM

We will raise outside funds for new deals as we look to boost assets under management.

02

Private Equity

Platform investments and Moonshots are going to be the key drivers of our growth.

We enjoy liquidity freedom with a fully unlevered real-estate portfolio and no near-term liability. The float our assets generate acts as a funding source and covers our operating expenses. Our income generation strategies include allotments to fixed income, real estate, and debt financing.
Our perpetual time horizon allows us to embrace risk and generate multiples of invested capital. Our ability not to swing for countless pitches and wait for the right opportunities to swing for the fences has given us multiple home runs/sixers (6x+ returns).
We seek out excess alpha by investing house money in emerging opportunities that are generational bets. We satisfy our entrepreneurial, operational, and intellectual curiosity by executing the proprietary framework “CIGAR” to grow our investments.
Linus Capital has a dedicated capital pool for the benefit of society from its inception, a key part of our investment ethos. A passion investment has given us the highest multiple expansion and promoted social good as well thus empowering us to double our commitment to impact investing.
Asset Classes
Alternative Investments

We add uncorrelated alpha by investing across asset classes that include private equity, real assets, special opportunities, and emerging markets.

Tech Equity

We position our investments on the right side of innovation evolving today. Building Moonshot Equity has been a work in progress for us.

Emerging Markets

Investing in emerging markets is much about investing in the future. Linus Capital has made tens of investments in India and exploring other markets.

Real Assets

We pair our real-estate strategies to growth in technology. We take advantage of markets where startups are being formed and jobs are created.




We invested in a sub-class of digital assets, a social tech venture, acquired agricultural land near a water source, and invested in teak and mango farms.

Niche Strategies

With a fully unlevered real-estate portfolio and no other liabilities, the float our assets generate is a funding source and covers our operating expenses.

The Float

We play with house money by making moonshot investments thus leveraging our entrepreneurial, operational, and investing background.

House Money

Our ability not to swing for countless pitches and wait for the right opportunities to swing for the fences has given us multiple home runs/sixers.

Swing for the fences

Our proprietary framework “CIGAR” unlocks exponential growth thus generating multiple expansion to our portfolio companies.
