Investment Philosophy

The investment process of Investec India is to build on trust. When people entrust with their money, they in turn can trust the company to have a clear and structured strategy as to how best that money should be invested.

This strategy can be developed by a two-way process where you will be encouraged to ask as many questions as possible.

It also includes understanding personal circumstances, objectives, knowledge, experience and attitude to risk. Based on this understanding it will help us to choose the right investment objective:

  • A balanced return from your income and capital growth
  • Primarily to maximise income
  • Primarily to maximise capital growth

 The next stage in the process is to think about risk and to balance your objectives with your capacity for loss, attitude to risk and what the required levels of risks may be. FinaMetrica is a well-established, academically accredited risk questionnaire that we may ask you to complete to achieve an independent assessment of your risk profile.

It also provide ideas and execution services for investors interested in Indian equities.
