NEW DELHI — A business in which L Capital, LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton’s investment arm, has just bought an 8 percent stake might not make caution its primary strategy. But William Bissell, managing director of Fabindia, one of India’s leading ethnicwear retailers, is best known for his considered decision making. So, three months after L Capital — which has a $640 million fund for investments in India and China — acquired a piece of the company, Bissell is still talking about restraint.
In an exclusive interview, the first since L Capital put the money into the chain, Bissell said, “Cautious growth is our motto for 2012. Cautious because it’s a turbulent time. Growth, because the Indian economy is still ripe for a lot of growth.”

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
