Investment Objective

The Investment Objective of this “Investment Strategy” is to create significant value over long term by investing in a concentrated portfolio of Indian equities which are significantly below intrinsic value and with strong long-term prospects. As the equity returns are non-linear, the objective is to stay invested till the return objectives are fully realized and avoid staying invested in an idea longer than required. The Portfolio Manager will opportunistically re-allocate money across stock ideas dynamically.
