The quality of an asset matters most to us. Our philosophy and process thus focus on picking good investments for better returns amongst different asset classes and sectors. Our best investment views are a function of the upside potential and conviction levels of the investment team. We prefer to be asset biased and limit investment calls based on sectors. We take a fundamental approach; follow top-down and bottom-up approaches in decision making. Our blended approach ensures less volatile returns throughout market cycles thereby achieving better returns during different market cycles.
