The Scheme does not meet our selection criteria at this time

Not a recommended fund: This is not a recommended fund, primarily because the AMC does not meet our selection criteria. We believe that there are better fund houses to invest in, within the Indian mutual fund universe.

IME Strategy Rating

Mid & Small Cap Focused: Flagship scheme of Green Portfolio. There is a moderate risk with high return expectations. Investments are made in select Mid and small-cap companies with impeccable fundamentals.

PMS Scheme Ratings are driven by IME’s Proprietary Scheme Rating Methodology, which takes into account our ratings of the Scheme’s investment strategy, its maturity, the investment team, and our separate rating on the AMC that runs this particular scheme. Our views on each of these individual criteria are available via the IME RMS – which you can view by reaching out to one of our relationship managers (using either the live chat or book appointment feature on this site).

Green Portfolio Special- Investment Strategy

Green Portfolio Special is a multi-cap strategy. This is the flagship scheme of Green Portfolio. Investments are made in select mid and small-cap companies with impeccable fundamentals.

Investment Philosophy 

Identify competitive businesses through bottom-top-approach with accurate valuations without compromising on the time.

Investment Principles followed
  • Anti Fragility in Business: Investing in businesses that have survived at least one downcycle. This decision is taken on the basis of giving confidence in the business model. Companies with a strong balance sheet.
  • Avoiding Highly Leveraged Business: Avoid businesses with a debt to equity ratio higher than 100%.
  • Avoiding Public Sector Enterprises: Since PSE’s carry excessive regulations in their operations, believe this makes for inefficient use of resources.
  • Ability to Generate Incremental Returns: Look for companies with ROE > 15%, also look for companies that can have this return ratio on incremental capital employed. This return ratio indicated the management’s ability to find new areas of growth in a consistent manner.
  • Improving Operating Margins: Investing in businesses that have an operating margin of 15% at least, along with operating margins improving through competitive advantages.

AMC: Green Portfolio PMS (click link for detailed AMC review)

Not a recommended AMC: Green Portfolio is a relatively new PMS provider, that has managed to both scale well and also deliver a reasonably strong performance in their initial years. The primary reason for a 2-star rating, is driven by the lack of a past public-market track record of their investment team & the fact that the strategies do not yet have a 5-year track record. As the strategies mature and longer-term performance develops to help us evaluate consistency of longer-term performance, we may consider upgrading our rating.

Green Portfolio PMS does not meet our criteria for PMS AMC Selection at this time. Understand our AMC rating criteria at AMC Rating Criteria or contact us via the LiveChat to learn more.
