Objective & Investment Philosophy

Focus on Return Optimization by investing in multicap portfolio of rising enterprises with sound corporate track record and sustainable business model keeping balance between value and growth strategy.

  • Value: Value investing is the art of buying stocks which trade at a significant discount to their intrinsic value. Portfolio Manager achieve this by looking for companies on cheap valuation metrics, typically low multiples of their profits or assets, for reasons which are not justified over the longer term.
  • Growth: Growth investing is a style of investment strategy focused on capital appreciation. Portfolio Manager invest in companies that exhibit signs of above- average growth, even if the share price appears expensive in terms of metrics such as price-to- earnings or price-to- book ratios.

Why Multicap Strategy

  • The table shows outperformance of the Mid Cap and Small Cap Index over the Sensex Indexduring the Bull Period.
  • Outperformance of the Mid Cap and small caps happens because of better earnings growth in the bull phase.
  • The P/E for Mid cap and Small Caps also expands as earnings growth is superior v/s Sensex earnings growth.
  • Identifying the business within attractive valuation compare to their growth is key factor for outperformance.
  • Returns delivered from Mid Cap and Small Cap do outperform the Large Cap, however one should keep in mind the risk associated with it as we see the higher volatility in it. Therefore we emphasis on stringent stock selection strategy and create a diversified Multicap portfolio to create alpha over the benchmark.

Re-VIEW Strategy

  • Valuation Check: A constant check is kept on the valuation of the companies so that any stock whose valuation becomes relatively high, due to any reasons like sentiments or increase in liquidity, is exited before any price correction comes to the stock. We then shift the money to a new stock with a reasonable valuation.
  • Impact of Events: A stock price can be highly affected by an event or series of events, recent examples: COVID crisis, Russia-Ukraine War, Increase in Crude Price, Interest Rates Hike etc. Our team actively tracks these events and makes timely modifications as per the situation’s needs to minimize risks & optimize returns.
  • Earnings Visibility Changes: Our fundamental research team scrutinizes the quarterly results of the companies to understand the current & future estimated growth. If we are not satisfied with 2 or 3 quarterly results of the company & don’t see growth, we take an exit to move to another stock.
  • Weightage Check of the Holdings: Every stock & sector has been capped to a certain percentage of the total allocation to limit downside due to any uncertainties and also diversify the portfolio. If any stock or sector reaches near to the decided percent of allocation, we book profits and reduce the weightage and invest into any other stock.
