NSE CEO Ashishkumar Chauhan said, “This transaction is a continuation of NSE’s strategy to focus on its core business areas, and we are pleased that Investcorp, which is a leading global investor with deep experience in IT services, is assuming responsibility for NSEIT.”

In India, Investcorp has invested across multiple sectors in companies, including Global Dental Services, Wakefit, Canpac, Xpressbees, Nephroplus, Safari Industries, InCred, Citykart, ZoloStays, FreshToHome, Intergrow Brands, Unilog, V-Ensure, and NDR Warehousing.
