Every day, Wadhawan Global Capital (WGC) leverages its capital and expertise to address one of the world’s most pressing challenges. The challenge of making financial empowerment a reality for all.
For more than 30 years, our businesses have taken something as fundamental as finance and helped people realize their dreams. Dreams of owning a home. Dreams of good education for their children. Dreams of protecting their families and loved ones. Dreams of being in control of their finances. Dreams of growing their wealth. Essentially, dreams of a better life.
WGC is founded on the vision of Late Shri Rajesh Kumar Wadhawan. Three decades ago, he envisioned creating an equitable society through economic empowerment. Undeniably, no other development area holds as much need or promise for creating an equitable world. Unmistakably, the world he envisioned, where everyone has an opportunity for a better life is within reach. Till date, this remains our unshaken belief.
What started with creating India’s second largest affordable housing finance company DHFL, has today grown into a global financial services group. A group that comprises a passionate team of 12,000+ people. A group that is peerless in delivering returns for investors and growing innovative businesses. A group that aspires to be amongst the most respected and most valuable financial services corporations in the world.
Today, we partner global developmental finance institutions such as Prudential Financial Inc. USA, International Finance Corporation (IFC), Korea Development Bank and GIC.
Today, our capital is enabling award-winning, innovative fintech businesses like Zopa, Neyber, Commuter Club, to extend financial services and products to more people, more efficiently. Today, we’re investing in the next wave of technology-enabled, high-growth businesses. Today, we’re investing in the future of financial services.
But this is not our only ambition. Through our community efforts, we endeavor to bring about a big pivot in the way society runs. We endeavor to leverage education to create a multiplier effect of opportunities for shaping the future generation. This is our focus at the Changing Lives Foundation, R. K. Wadhawan trust and across our group companies. This is what underpins our partnership with The Simon Business School, University of Rochester in establishing The Rajesh Wadhawan Professorship.
Most of all, across our business and social endeavours, we’re touching millions of lives worldwide, giving everyone a chance to realize their dreams. This remains our overarching pride.
