Foundation Holdings, a healthcare, education and consumer focused investment firm, has announced plans to invest more than $500 million in the Gulf and India over the next five years.
The company said in a statement that the appointment of five new senior executives would help to drive the expansion which will include investments of AED2 billion ($540 million).
The new appointments include Tharshan Wijey as chief financial officer, Karan Yadav as chief strategy officer, Aakash Sachdev as managing director (India), Parvati Banati as managing director - Asset Management and Phil Garrison as managing director - Operations.

Abhishek Sharma, Foundation Holdings CEO, said: “Our vision is to build sustainable, industry defining companies and we believe that actualising this is a team sport.
"The new appointments will not only add depth and bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to our business, but together with the existing board of directors and advisory board, will help redefine the industry."
