D.E Shaw Group is poised to enter a joint-venture with Indian billionaire and industrialist Mukesh Ambani, as the latter prepares to move into the financial services sector.
Terms of the potential deal—other than that it will be an equal joint-venture—are unclear. But it will allow the Mukesh Dhirubhai Ambani Group, and its Reliance Industries, to enter the financial services business, including private equity funds, the Economic Times reports.
Those business areas opened to Ambani after he and his estranged brother Anil ended their non-compete agreement with one another last month.
Ambani is also looking to buy a majority stake in JM FInancial Asset Management, an Indian money manager and private equity shop.
