The last 2+ months have been a rather busy one for Reliance Industries Limited (RIL). The company has announced twelve big investment deals – from Facebook, Silver Lake Partners, Vista Equity Partners, General Atlantic, KKR & Co., Mubadala, Abu Dhabi Investment Authority (ADIA), TPG Capital, L Catterton Partners, The Public Investment Fund (PIF), Intel Capital and Qualcomm Ventures. All of these deals are iconic in their own right and further RIL’s ambitions for leadership in the Digital Ecosystem. While a lot has already been written on this topic, we at Greyhound Research believe RIL’s ambitions for Jio Platforms are broader and deeper than what meets the eye.

This report by Greyhound Research details the investments by Facebook, Silver Lake Partners, Vista Equity Partners, General Atlantic, KKR & Co, Mubadala, Abu Dhabi Investment Authority (ADIA), TPG Capital, L Catterton Partners, The Public Investment Fund (PIF), Intel Capital, and Qualcomm Ventures in Jio Platforms, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Reliance Industries Limited (RIL). The report also highlights Jio’s engagement with Microsoft, impact on Bharti Airtel, next steps for Jio and the challenges the company can expect.
