From the Founders & Managers of SageOne Investment PMS

What to expect from SageOne Core Portfolio PMS?

SCP is SageOne’s flagship strategy with an impeccable record of ~29% CAGR returns since its inception in April, 2012.

  • The objective is to invest in high growth businesses with a potential to double earnings in 3-4 years and available at reasonable valuations.
  • Return ratios above 20% and debt-equity ratio under 0.5 are key attributes of SCP portfolio companies.
  • Since these attributes are difficult to find in large-cap businesses (either low growth or rich valuations), the market-cap focus remains in the 100th to 600th companies by market-cap rank.
  • Among the ~80 businesses bought so far in SageOne portfolios, more than 85% have delivered positive returns (and 65% have delivered returns above 25%).

Among all the accolades and recognitions, SCP has been recently ranked among the top 3 PMSs by PMS AIF World in their 2022 QRC ranking report.

Who should invest in this PMS?

Investors should have a long-term investment horizon (5+ years) with above-average risk-taking ability. While our portfolio management strategies significantly diversify stock-specific risks, clients are still exposed to the volatility of mid & small cap investing.
