Anurag Das

Managing Director & CEO, International Asset Reconstruction Company

Mr. Das specializes in global distressed and special situations investing, and has led secondary market and private investments across the capital structure of companies undergoing rescue, turnarounds, restructuring and liquidation. His experience since 1994 spans a range of industries, some of the most complex and large global insolvencies, and bankruptcy jurisdictions in North America, Europe and the Asia-Pacific.

Prior to founding Rain Tree, Mr. Das managed investments with some the world’s leading distressed specialists. He was a managing director at King Street Capital, a US$20 billion distressed/credit investor. He established the firm's Singapore office to lead its Asia-Pacific investments after working in the New York offices of King Street and Perry Capital. Earlier, he managed high yield, mezzanine, leveraged loan and distressed private equity investments with Bain Capital Credit, and with GE Capital in India and the US, where he also worked on corporate restructuring exercises.

Mr. Das received an MBA degree from Harvard Business School after working as a strategy consultant with Bain & Company in SE Asia and India. He earlier received a BA Honors in PPE from the University of Oxford where he was a Rhodes Scholar, and a B.Sc. Honors in Physics from the University of Delhi.
