Rajindre is the CEO of Mahler Fund Management B.V., Chairman India Business Council at the Dutch Council for Trade Promotion, Member Executive Council of GOPIO International and Chairman BUDC India Pvt.Ltd. active in Emerging Market Equities, with a special focus on financing Urban Development & Food Security in India.
Rajindre has more than 25 years of experience in financial industry after studying in Delhi, Antwerpen, and Leiden. He has had many roles mostly in Consulting, Banking, Technology, Real Estate and Corporate Finance, with a tenure as Board member of the financial services groups Achmea/Eureko, Delta Lloyd and former Chairman of pension fund management company Cordares Capital (41 bn. AUM), now part of APG group. After this tenure he co-founded Mahler Fund Management. His Mahler India Equity Fund was launched in 2011, registered with SEBI and the Dutch regulators, and became the most successful India focused investment vehicle in the Netherlands in 2014/5. He also advised India’s IFCI Ventures on structuring private equity funds and Assocham on the NPS in 2012.
Rajindre led trade missions to the Indian financial services regulators (RBI/SEBI/PFRDA), the Vibrant Gujarat Summit 2015, and was invited frequently to speak on PBD panels initiated by the Indian Ministry of External Affairs. He is active in the lobby of EU-India trade/investment relations in Brussels with the partner council, the Europe India Chamber & Commerce, but also on win-win business and financial relations between the two continents.
He believes that European companies have a lot of potential opportunities to tap into India and vice versa, if they partner with innovative companies to co-create wealth for both regions in stead of pursuing the classic sourcing relationships and contract manufacturing. Technology transfer by sharing and co-development of knowledge and services will increase the prospects of real relationships. Both continents then have to overcome their prejudices or mental assumptions about doing business, women empowerment, societal values, human rights and business leadership.
