Accuracap PicoPower has demonstrated sustained performance since its inception, showcasing a track record of reliability and consistent capital appreciation throughout various market cycles.

Portfolio Construction

  • Low Churn and Tax Efficient: average holding period is 2 years. All gains are long-term capital gains. The strategy aims to be fully invested and does not attempt to time the Market
  • Portfolio Rebalancing:  rebalanced on a pre-defined schedule and usually once a year
  • Exits: exits the portfolio if the rank is below the cut-off on the rebalance date where the exiting Stock is replaced by the new high-ranked stock while keeping the number of stocks in the portfolio constant.
