Pratik Shah joined Boston Consulting Group in 2016. He is a member of the firm’s Principal Investors & Private Equity (PIPE) practice and global leader for investment fund strategy and operations.

Pratik works with both private equity funds and principal investors (primarily sovereign wealth funds) from around the world on their most complex challenges, primarily on the development of investment and asset class strategy, investor (LP) and stakeholder management, and the restructuring and optimization of internal firm operations. He has significant experience in both end-to-end fund build-outs and targeted interventions along the value chain, working directly with the C-suite to both design strategy and implement recommendations.

Pratik’s current priority is the end-to-end setup of government-sponsored sector development and infrastructure funds in emerging markets, as well as working with leading private equity firms on specific growth, differentiation, and operating model topics. In addition, he has been working closely with fund leadership globally on the repositioning of their investment strategy and operating models in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, and helping them develop advanced data and analytics capabilities to drive competitive advantage throughout their value chains.

Pratik’s prior experience includes working for a $2 billion growth capital fund and as an investment banker at a US bulge-bracket firm.
