ChrysCapital makes second bet from ninth fund

Homegrown private equity firm ChrysCapital on Thursday said it has bought a controlling stake in software engineering and digital services platform Xoriant for an undisclosed amount. 

The deal marks ChrysCapital’s second buyout from its ninth fund worth $1.4 billion, which it raised in 2022, the firm said. Last year, it had invested in IDFC AMC along with Bandhan Financial Holdings and Singapore’s sovereign fund GIC. 

“At ChrysCapital, we have developed deep expertise with Digital IT Services across industry verticals,” said Akshat Babbar, director, ChrysCapital.

“When Xoriant was founded as TekEdge in 1990, I did not predict the scale and reputation that the company would achieve in the next three decades” said Gaitonde, founder and chief executive, Xoriant.
