AMC: Kotak PMS (click link for detailed AMC review)

Can be considered for investment due to being a stable AMC-driven PMS: Within AMC-driven PMS houses, Kotak PMS is one of the better-run PMS platforms. This is primarily driven by a relatively stable investment team and a more differentiated & defined investment style (relative to other AMC PMSs, but not pure-play investor-promoted PMS funds), which combined with the benefits of being a part of a larger financial conglomerate make it a reasonable choice for PMS investments.
