PMS Rating

IME PMS Rating

5 of 5 stars

Highly recommended for aggressive investors : Sameeksha Capital's credibility is built on the strong fundamental research credentials of its founder Bhavin Shah. Bhavin has worked as a top-rated senior analyst at JP Morgan & Credit Suisse, post which he headed Equirius Research prior to setting up Sameeksha Capital. The combination of a highly-pedigreed fundamental research driven-manager, robust research processes combined with proprietary research tools, and strong performance make Sameeskha a good boutique option amongst PMS firms.

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.
