About Toshan

Toshan Tamhane leads McKinsey’s Corporate Finance and Private Equity Practice in India. The focus of his client work is on helping private equity players, limited partnerships and hedge funds make value-creating investments across asset classes–and create post-investment value through portfolio improvement and governance.

Toshan also co-leads McKinsey’s Financial Services Practice in India and has worked across India and Southeast Asia with leading banks, insurance companies, and asset managers, as well as with regulators and policy-makers. He also has extensive experience in helping corporates drive value through domestic and cross-border M&A and divestitures.

Examples of Toshan's experience include:

  • helping a global pension fund assess infrastructure investment opportunities in Asia across greenfield and brownfield assets
  • supporting a leading Indian bank in its effort to raise a multi-million dollar infrastructure fund in partnership with other anchor investors
  • working with a leading private equity fund to drive value-creation in its investee companies

In financial services, Toshan has helped a major insurance company in its multi-year transformation journey; and developed a strategy for the affluent and high net worth segments for a financial conglomerate. His transaction structuring work includes helping a major global investment manager formulate its Asia and India investment strategy; and structuring a joint venture between a global infrastructure player and Asian developer.

Outside of McKinsey, Toshan is an avid martial arts practitioner.
