Lok Capital returns $65 million to investors and raises $80 million more



Gurgaon-based Lok invests in financial institutions serving low-income Indians, and is expanding into healthcare, agriculture, and housing.

Lok has exited four companies in the past 12 months, enabling the firm to return $65 million in principal from its second fund, with three years to go.

Last year, it fully exited 10 investments from its $22 million first fund, and returned 10% in profits to investors. Its track record has boosted Lok’s fundraising for its third fund, which has secured $80 million toward a $100 million target.

With backing from domestic Indian investors for the first time, Lok expects about one-third of its investors to be private; for its first fund, all but 5% of its capital came from development finance institutions.
