Oister, an investment platform that unlocks access to private market funds, has appointed David Wilton as Chief Investment Officer and Sandeepa Vig as Chief Business Officer.

Wilton has over 20 years of experience investing in private equity and venture capital funds and previously managed venture capital (VC) and private equity (PE) investments for the World Bank Pension fund. He also led VC and PE investment programs for the International Finance Corporation (IFC) in emerging markets and Morgan Stanley in ESG and Impact. At Oister, he will lead the selection and curation of VC, PE and venture debt funds on the platform.

Vig has over two decades of experience in the finance industry with expertise in institutional equities and wealth management. In the past her roles included serving as the president of IIFL, where she founded and led three businesses: Private Client, Wealth Management, and Domestic Institutional Equities. 

She also worked as a vice president at Kotak Securities and handled cross-border wealth management projects with clients like Charles Schwab while she was at Blu Pagoda LLC. As a Global Advisor at Avestar Capital, she played a pivotal role in establishing the US-India cross-border wealth management platform, enabling cross-border investments for both B2B and B2C segments. Vig will be responsible for driving business growth at Oister.

With this development, the mission is to continue making funds, Indian and global, accessible to investors across India while prioritising ease, transparency and flexibility.

The commitment to provide the same diligence quality to all investors, no matter their size, sets Oister apart in the industry. I look forward to joining their mission of making investing simple and transparent.”

With the aim to make investing simple, investors can discover a curated selection of high-performing funds in the VC and PE ecosystem, backed by trusted credentials and a proven track record of delivering efficient investment strategies. Investors can easily monitor their investments, track market trends, and make informed decisions on their wealth creation journey.
