As of now, I think there is 1 fund that checks this criterion. Aditya Birla Sun Life Special Opportunities Fund is a fund that works on these lines. It is focused on events like change in management, business restructuring, mergers & acquisitions, Government policy change, regulatory changes, disruption due to a new entrant, macro-economic changes, geo-political developments, global events, etc., can create special situations in a market, business, sector or company and thus special opportunities for investment.

The problem in India at this moment is the lack of disruptive players in the listed space. Most of these companies like PayTM, Zomato, Swiggy, Oyo are unlisted at present. Thus, it is very difficult for a mainstream fund to tap into these companies. Yet, this is definitely space we will be witnessing significant developments over time.
