Investment Philosophy

At Carnelian, we believe in growth investing at reasonable valuations & obsess about the risk-reward trade off. As long term investors, we prefer definite returns over immediate returns and we don’t mind underperformance in the short term. We are happy to be a contrarian when the risk-reward payoff is compelling and don’t mind sitting on cash when we perceive weakness. Lastly, we are a very conscious of corporate governance and have zero tolerance towards governance issues.

Investment philosophy revolves around Carnelian PIU framework which involves deep dive into Business, Management and Risk Reward metrics.
