Led by Rajiv Jain, GQG had previously made a ₹15,500 crore investment in four Adani Group firms in March.

Jain, a veteran investor and an outspoken defender of Adani Group, had previously said that GQG would look to participate in the Gautam Adani-led conglomerate's future fundraisings and new offerings. He had added that the investment firm expects to be one of the largest investors in the Adani Group within five years, depending on the valuation.

Although Adani stocks have recovered to some extent after the Hindenburg report, which alleged severe financial misconduct on the conglomerate’s part, the recovery has been uneven and the total market value of the group’s stocks is still lower than they were before the report was published.

Price Action: After the block deal Adani Enterprises shares were up 4% at ₹2,387.50, while shares of Adani Green slipped 2.56% to ₹943.70 around noon on Wednesday.
