Tata AMC ACT Investment

Scheme Rating

IME Scheme Rating

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

Strategy Definition not as tight as our preferences: A fairly diversified strategy with 25-35 stocks in the portfolio each having distinct characteristics, operating in different enviroment, giving an all-round character to the portfolio. The portfolio would be constructed on a bottoms-up basis across sectors and market caps. But the strategy is not tightly defined, which does have it’s pros & cons. While a loosely defined strategy does allow the fund manager the flexibility to change portfolio positioning based on the market environment, we prefer greater clarity on how the portfolios are likely to be constructed.

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).

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

Not a recommended AMC: Typically AMC driven PMS's benefit from the distribution & research strengths of the mutual fund. However, Tata MF has struggled to scale relative to the value of its brand and the PMS division is more an off-shoot than a strong independent arm. Until the PMS business is not more clearly defined and given a greater degree of focus, we do not recommend investments in Tata PMS.
