Ocean Dial Investments Funds ICAV (ODIF) has appointed Tridib Pathak as co-head of Equity at Ocean Dial India, the India-based adviser to Ocean Dial Asset Management.
Pathak has 20 years' experience in India's fund management industry, managing assets for domestic and international investors. He joins from Enam Group, where he was senior portfolio manager. His previous roles included CIO of Lotus Asset Management (a JV with Temasek's Fullerton Fund Management) and CIO of DBS Cholamandalam, a JV with DBS of Singapore.
He is expected to assume full management of the Gateway to India Fund in due course. The fund is currently managed by Gaurav Narain who took over from Sanjoy Bhattacharyya after he stepped down earlier this year owing to poor health.
Like Bhattacharyya, Pathak started his career as a senior credit analyst before joining UBS India's equity research department. Since moving to the buy-side in 1999, Pathak has built a track record through multiple economic cycles.
