Spark Capital has morphed to being more than a mid-market investment bank as it was originally envisaged, growing to be a complete financial services house. Having sunk early roots in Chennai, where it continues to be headquartered, Spark Capital now has full-fledged offices at both Bombay and Bangalore; across three locations, it employs over 150 professionals.
Founded and led by a group of well-networked finance professionals who share common values, Spark, over the last decade and a half, has seen additions to its senior management team primarily from long-timers who’ve evolved from within. This has led to the preservation and the perpetuation of shared values and cultural commonalities that Spark has prided itself on – an unwavering focus on transparency; intellectual honesty; and uncompromising integrity. Having deliberately focused on providing tailormade solutions for its corporate clients since inception, Spark Capital continues to be acknowledged by client-promoters for the innovativeness of its ideation and the cerebral energy it gets to the table. Along its journey, Spark Capital also expanded to deliver best-in class research and execution capabilities to Institutional Clients, ranking it among the top Equities houses in the country today.
Spark Capital has further expanded its bouquet of offerings by focussing on client-centric, product-neutral Investment Advisory services to mid-sized families. By launching a full-fledged Asset Management business focusing on both listed equity markets and structured-debt opportunities through a combination of PMS and AIF vehicles, Spark Capital has fulfilled its vision of being a complete financial services player with a comprehensive set of offerings.
