Investment Philosophy (for firm)

We partner with entrepreneurs who are experiencing exponential growth

Equity

Our equity investment philosophy is centered on generating capital appreciation for the investor. The primary emphasis is on providing the investor with a degree of capital appreciation, superior to that of the returns from the equity class as represented by a market index over the longer term. Our core investment premise is that the equity markets are not completely efficient. A well-organized and thorough research effort combined with a disciplined portfolio management approach will enable out performance of the market index over time.

A key pillar of our disciplined approach is to stay true to the mandate of the specific fund as specified in the offer document under all circumstances. This is key to generating superior performance over time even though there could be times when staying true to the mandate may result in short-term underperformance. Our investment philosophy is a matrix framework of Company, Industry, Economic and Technical analysis. The equity team will provide many of the inputs for this framework, but we will also use inputs from external sources as and when required. This open framework is combined with an environment that encourages regular and constant debate; which we believe leads to superior decision making.

Fixed Income

The philosophy for managing fixed income portfolios revolves around optimizing risk adjusted returns for the investor by investing in high quality credit assets, managing interest rate risk and minimizing liquidity risk.Strive to generate optimized risk adjusted returns by providing for safety of capital, liquidity of funds and investment income for the investors. The portfolios are actively managed for both the interest rate risk, credit and liquidity risk. The interest rate risk is managed across duration buckets and portfolio composition is managed through active asset allocation across credits and the liquidity risk through a well-diversified portfolio.

The credit risk assessment constitutes an integral part of the investment process and is carried out across sectors covering manufacturing, finance and services. By applying the credit model, we determine and monitor the credit worthiness of an issuer and assess the credit exposure limit. Our internal credit rating acts as a powerful risk containment tool that allow the fund manager to narrow down select credits to match the credit strategies of individual funds.

Firstly, he clears a myth about mutual funds and PMS being similar, he says mutual funds are good for beginners with no experience in investing and PMS is suitable for investors who have at least some knowledge of markets, stocks etc. PMS have more flexibility as compared to mutual funds on the regulations front. Investors with risk taking ability should go for PMS’s. Flexibility from any theme point of view with PMS’s.

Analyst questions

  • Can you give examples of stocks you were wrong on? What were the scenarios where your strategy didn’t work?
  • How have your thought process about investment philosophy evolved since years?
  • Have sticking to the mandate ever backfired?
  • As mentioned, the investment strategy gives signals to sell particular stock, can you talk us through that?
  • While all of your portfolios have cash as asset class ranging between 0-40%, do you actually consider this range, or just stick to around 5%?
