Investment Objective

ICICI Prudential PMS Contra Strategy aims to provide long term capital appreciation and generate returns by investing in underperforming stocks or sectors, which are available at intrinsic valuations and are expected to perform well in the long run. It seeks to generate capital appreciation by investing predominantly in Equity & Equity Related Instruments through contrarian investing. For defensive consideration, the Strategy may invest in debt and money market mutual fund schemes.

Portfolio Strategy

• A focused portfolio of investment ideas, agnostic to market capitalisations. The Strategy aims to invest across market capitalisation.

• Optimal diversification across stocks, with the opportunity to be overweight vis-à-vis its benchmark, S&P BSE 200, on certain high conviction picks, to potentially generate higher alpha.

• In case of debt exposures, the Strategy may invest in debt instruments through money market/liquid/short term mutual fund schemes of ICICI Prudential Mutual Fund.

• The Strategy may not be restricted by any particular investment style and may opt for flexibility to select stocks across investment styles.

• May aim to use cash as a hedge against sharp declines in equity in an endeavour to protect the Strategy.
