Investment Style • Intensive fundamental analysis: Our investible universe comprises of companies with strong fundamentals, mostly large to medium market cap companies. Typically, such companies can be found in the broader BSE 200 Index. • Portfolio construction is based on “Active monitoring but not incessant churning”. • Risk control is an integral part of our portfolio management process. We avoid speculation. The profile and risk preference of the client dictates the portfolio asset allocation.
Portfolio Construction Each client’s portfolio is a separately managed account This segregated structure enables us to customize the portfolio to meet the client’s investment objectives The structure of the portfolio can be broadly categorized as: • Low risk • Medium risk • High risk .
Risk/Return Characteristics • Low Risk Portfolio: In a low risk portfolio the investment philosophy would be to reduce the risk and set a lower target return . The portfolio would have less exposure to cyclical, technology, and media sectors and more exposure to defensive sectors like FMCG, banking, and utilities • Medium Risk Portfolio: In a medium risk portfolio the investment philosophy would be to limit the risk and set a moderate target return. The portfolio would have comparatively more exposure to cyclical, technology, and media sectors and less exposure to defensive sectors like FMCG, banking and utilities. • High Risk Portfolio: In a high risk portfolio the investment philosophy would be to increase the risk and set a high target return. The exposure to cyclical, technology, media & pharmaceuticals would be relatively more compared to defensive sectors like FMCG, banking & utilities.
