Analyst questions

  2. What strategy do you follow in managing the fund? How do you choose between various companies in the small cap segment? Have you set any threshold level in terms of quality of earnings, governance structure when you look at the companies?
  3. There are various AIF cat3 funds in the market, how is your fund different from other funds? Do you have any competitive advantage? 
  4. What is the key parameter behind choosing a stock? How do you look for opportunities in the market, do you have any information advantage?
