Welspun 101

Welspun One Logistics Parks Fund I, is a SEBI-registered Category II AIF is India’s first warehousing fund that provides domestic institutions, HNIs, family offices and NRIs, an opportunity to invest in the booming warehousing and industrial real estate sector in India.

INVESTMENT
OBJECTIVE

The fund has a target size of INR 500crore with a tenure of 4 years and a hurdle rate of 15% with a significant commitment from the Welspun promoter family office of INR 75 crore. The fund is fully managed by Welspun One, key distributors of which are Sanctum Wealth Management, Edelweiss Finance and Incred.


Welspun One’s investment strategy is focused on sourcing and developing feasible land parcels which suit institutional investors and get leased by valued occupiers, whilst maintaining high levels of compliance, safety and zero tolerance to regulatory lapses across the project life-cycle.


The investment thesis of our fund is to acquire land parcels in high demand, pre-identified markets, and develop ‘Grade- A’ warehousing parks which will be leased on a long-term basis to ‘AAA’ credit tenants from sectors such as e-commerce, FMCG, third-party logistics (3PL’s), pharma and auto-ancillaries.


We will deploy the raised capital to develop about 300-acres of Grade-A warehousing and logistics space pan-India with our immediate focus being seven cities namely Mumbai, Pune, Bengaluru, Chennai, Kolkata, NCR and Lucknow. This includes our under-construction flagship 110-acre park with a leasable area of approx. 3 million sq. ft. in Bhiwandi, Maharashtra.
