• Vision and dynamism
• High standards of governance
• Wisdom
• Demonstrated capital allocation and capital distribution skills

ASK IEP looks for superior quality which it believed is achieved through the preservation of value and high growth is sought to achieve expansion of value.

ASK IEP PMS looks for 20% compounded growth from each business and targets over 25% growth from the portfolio. To fund this growth, the business ROCE should be over 25% so that growth can be funded and there are surpluses for dividend.

ASK IEP PMS core is promoters with adequate skin in the game. This ensures alignment of management and shareholder interests, hence, ASK IEP PMS invests into businesses with an identifiable business house at helm with minimum 25% stake.

ASK India’s Entrepreneurial PMS portfolio seeks to identify such businesses at reasonable discount to value and stay invested for a length of time and make money as EPS compounds.

Investment Philosophy

ASK’s Advantage“Investing”, as Buffett says, “is simple but not easy”. It is the implementation of the simple things consistently and with discipline during all market conditions, that requires character, which makes all the critical difference. Core advantage lies in the disciplined and consistent execution of these ‘simple’ things and doing them well.Core philosophy at ASK Investment Managers revolves around two key aspects:

  1. First achieve capital protection (over time) and
  2. Follow it with capital appreciation.

Overarching Investing Philosophy and Principles

• Greater certainty of earnings v/s. mere quantum of earnings growth
• Superior and consistent quality of earnings v/s. mere quantum of earnings growth
• High quality at a reasonable price v/s. inferior quality at an arithmetically ‘cheap’ price
