Stallion Core

Scheme Rating

IME Scheme Rating

3 of 5 stars

Good High Risk-Reward Option: Stallion has recently crossed the 5-yr mark since inception. The fund has been able to demonstrate consistent performance on their momentum based investment approach. We accordingly recommend the fund to investors with higher risk appetite given the investment philosophy and the higher churn in the portfolio.

IME Strategy Rating

3 of 5 stars

Monopoly Focused Strategy: The Strategy structures its portfolio into two categories, allocating 40-60% to Proven Monopolies and Emerging Monopolies. The fundamental objective is to invest in businesses that have a track record of leadership in their sector and are poised to sustain their leadership. This is a clearly articulated investment strategy focused on momentum trading.

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).

Stallion Asset Core Fund- Investment Strategy

Stallion Asset – Core Fund is a multi-cap strategy. A combination of top-down and bottom-up approaches for picking stocks and sectors.

Invest in 2 kinds of Business
  • Proven Monopolies (40-60% allocation): Asset light businesses which don’t need capital to grow and that can reinvest all free cash flows at high ROIC with strong competitive advantages.
  • Emerging Monopolies (40-60% allocation): These are companies with low market share in large markets. The team aims to identify such opportunities early.
Focus on 4 sectors: Financials & Consumer Tech are chosen as they create alpha in bull market and Consumer and pharma will protect during bear market.

Investment Approach

Focus on 4Ms:
  • Market Leadership: Focus on monopolies
  • Management: evaluated based on capital allocation and capital distribution among other aspects
  • Market Opportunity: Invest in companies that address a market that is large enough to allow investments to grow 4-5x without needing to compete
  • Margin of Safety: Do not use PE Ratio’s instead focus on Capital Allocation & Distribution
Businesses Avoided
  • Businesses that don’t have recurring revenue or get revenues from govt/project business
  • Commodity like businesses that get worse with size
  • Businesses with a growth rate less than Cost of Capital
  • Hold on to looser for a Long time.
  • Commodities

  • Valuation Arbitrage
  • Government Businesses (B2G or G2B)

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

Good Niche Momentum-based investment style: With a higher-risk higher-churn momentum-tilted investment strategy, Stallion is a good option for investors seeking an investment style based around momentum investing. While the AMC is still relatively new, they have developed a reasonable presence for themselves on the back of consistent performance on a momentum investing style.

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.
