PMS Investment Philosophy

Investing through cycles utilizing Core & Satellite method of Portfolio Construction: 

  • Core: Preferring predictable Cash Flows rather than optional; Reinvestment (Preferring Dividend Yield versus Growth); Preferring industry Leaders rather than challengers.
  • Satellite: Investing in cyclicals (such as Metals, CVs, NBFC); Companies making a Turnaround (like Disruption ending: Bharti Airtel); Value (leader largely expensive). 

Investing also based on cyclical stance- Aggressive Cycle stance; Defensive Cycle Stance 

Aggressive Cycle stance ( Core-30% Satellite-70%)– The main aim is to generate superior returns by focusing more on Satellite allocation rather than Core. 

Defensive Cycle Stance (Core-70% Satellite-30%)– The aim is to protect Capital by focusing on Core allocation rather than Satellite allocation.

Note: PMS AMC & Scheme Reviews and Ratings are based on IME Capital’s Proprietary Review and Rating Methodology (read more here: AMC Rating & Scheme Ratings). These reflect the unbiased views of our central research team, based on our assessment of the investment value of these PMS/AIF strategies for our investors. We follow a highly stringent rating-criteria, where approximately 50% of PMS AMC’s & strategies would be rated 2-star or below (this is not meant to indicate that these funds are not investment-worthy, but that they do not currently fulfill the requirements we focus on for recommending funds to our investors — based on our internal views on the merit of the AMC/strategy relative to peers). Reviews & Ratings are primarily based on research of publicly available information (SEBI disclosures, PMS websites, PMS-aggregation platforms, webinar recording, media interviews etc.) and no explicit consent is required from AMCs for the same. While we endeavour to do further due-diligence via direct interactions with the investment teams of AMCs, this is typically restricted to AMC’s that meet our foundational fund selection criteria (reviews on lower-rated AMCs are often based solely on publicly available information). The views reflected in our Reviews & Ratings, are our independent views and may not be shared by the AMC’s and the investment teams. Please read detailed disclaimer for more.
