IME Strategy Rating

3 of 5 stars

Multi-cap Value Strategy: Valentis follow a 3 “U” Philosophy – aiming to buy stocks that are undervalued, underperforming and under-owned. The portfolio is positioned to have 20-40% exposure to large-cap companies outside of their typically small and mid-cap focus. Undervalued, underperforming & under-owned stocks are core differentiators and are well articulated.

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).
