Children will generally take after their parents. It is a blessing to be successful at something and have your children follow in your footsteps. Such has been the case with Bhanu Choudhrie and his Dad, London based businessman Sudhir Choudhrie.
We can say that the younger Mr. Choudhrie was born with a winning hand, but that would be unfair to him. It is not uncommon for the children of overachievers to get lost in the shadows of their brilliant parents. Better that we say that Bhanu Choudhrie was groomed for success, and he has lived up to expectations.
Bhanu was born in India and moved to London in 1999 after attending the University of Boston in the US. His first work experience in the UK was an internship at JP Morgan Chase. Three years later, in 2002, he founded the C&C Alpha Group (CCAG).
As the director of his own holding company, Bhanu Choudhrie has been calling the shots right from the beginning. CCAG is owned by the Choudhrie family, although it was established as a holding company for a group of veteran venture capitalists.

Most of Mr. Choudrie’s investments are in Asia. In fact, Asian investments are CCAG’s specialty. Right now, the region offers growth and stability. Two things which venture capitalists are eager to find.
CCAG has investments in various sectors such as health care, hospitality, and real estate. However, one of Bhanu Choudhrie’s most promising plays is Alpha Aviation Group (AAG).
AAG is a flight school based in the Philippines. Mr. Choudhrie has reason to be optimistic about AAG’s future earning potential. Over the last 13 years they have produced 900 pilots. However, the experts are predicting that the Asia-Pacific region will soon need thousands of additional aviators due to ever-increasing demand.
Furthermore, new regulations require that all new pilots flying in Asia must be able to speak English. That is advantageous to Filipino cadet pilots because English is widely spoken in their country.
Bhanu Choudhrie is not only successful because he is his father’s son. Give him credit for being able to identify a good deal, even if it is an inherited trait.
