Course Overview

Distressed investing is one of the most complex and rewarding investment fields. There is a strong rationale for participating and learning during this Masterclass in the current favourable investment environment. 

There is a strong deal flow of distressed deals & turnaround investment opportunities in the marketplace. 

Leading global investors like KKR, Bain Capital, TPG, the Special Situations Group, Lonestar Capital, Farallon Capital, Piramal, and other private equity funds have already expressed interest in these opportunities and have also begun to make investments. 


Such investments if done prudently, have the potential to produce substantial returns on equity, debt, and fulcrum investments.

My work with PEPP laid the foundation for a career in that finance sector. During my time at PEPP, I had the opportunity of learning about diverse streams including private equity, mergers and acquisitions, equity valuations; diverse sectors including agriculture, infrastructure, and education among others; learning from industry leaders including Mr. Mathur; and first-hand access to world-class study material and case studies.Beyond work, I am eternally grateful for Mr. Mathur's advice and guidance throughout the past 8 years that I have known him.

The trainer (Arvind Mathur) discussed the practicality of private equity and deal structuring. Hence it provided very good insights.
