Care PMS

PMS Rating

IME PMS Rating

AMC does not meet our selection criteria at this time

Not a recommended AMC: For a PMS started by a group of CA's without past investment experience, Care PMS has done reasonably well in terms of scaling up their business & fund performance. However, it is yet to fully prove its credentials as a credible PMS player.

The PMS/AIF AMC Rating is derived on the basis of our analysis on 5 key qualitative parameters that we use to analyse the quality of a PMS/AIF Provider. These include an assessment of the size of the AMC, the pedigree of the AMC, the pedigree of the team, the value of the investment philosophy & the level of differentiation. These insights of our central research team are documented in the IME RMS, and can be accessed during a consultation call with an IME PMS specialist.

PMS Background

Care PMS was founded in 2011, by a team of chartered accountants with a dream of becoming a trusted portfolio manager for their clients.

PMS Investment Philosophy

Care PMS runs 2 strategies: 

  • Growth Plus Value strategy: a multi-cap portfolio that combines growth & value (with a greater focus on value & smaller companies)
  • Large & mid-cap strategy: focus on the top 250 companies by market cap


  1. Shortlisting of companies on ongoing basis (on fundamental trigger) or during quarterly earnings season (after applying their own quant screeners) for detailed anlysis. 
  2. Performing extensive fundamental research on shortlisted stocks and their peer group to spot trend or turnaround in that segment or industry. 
  3. Take account of recent developments in that segment or industry and meet industry participants across the value chain to confirm inferences 
  4. Detailed analysis of company’s strategies, management’s ability to execute and pedigree of management followed by Q&A with management or investor relations. 
  5. Decision to add a company or replace an existing company taken only after consensus among 3 investment directors.


  • Stock Selection: Stocks selected after analysing financials and due diligence as per their Investment Criterion. Mostly invest in dominant player in a segment
  • Portfolio Construction: Constructed based on complying with controls and observing them such as individual stock exposure and sector exposure limits. Diversify between growth ideas, turnarounds and value buys
  • Portfolio Review: Portfolio is then reviewed on the basis of quantitative review of portfolio holding, supervision and monitoring to position portfolio with investment team directives
  • Exit and Replace: When stock price appreciates to its fair value or reaches their target or if there is a change in business fundamentals– Sell. Replacement of existing portfolio done when there is an availability of an alternate investment.


  • Disproportionate Risk-reward
  • Restriction on single sector/company
  • Diversification
  • Continuous monitoring

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.
