About the Company:

Unifi is essentially a value investor in growth businesses. They place Value first but always also demand growth potential in a business they own. They believe that stock performance, particularly in mid and small firms, needs a catalyst; and often the best catalyst is an attractive price combined with growth.

Unifi believes that both micro (firm level) and macro risks are critical in determining outcomes. They carefully evaluate the fundamentals of each business that they own, and in addition ask the question if the prevailing and expected conditions in the economy will act for or against their interest. At times, while making longer term investments, they consciously trade off adverse macro conditions for terrific entry valuations.

Investment Objective

The objective of Unifi BC-AD Fund is to have an investment focus on growth oriented companies in specific sectors which are leading the migration of market share from unorganised players to organised players. As India’s economy grows rapidly in scale and sophistication, several sectors are positioned to change dramatically over the next decade. Certain powerful trends are driving the shift in the balance of competitive advantage in favour of organized businesses.

Unifi Capital actively manages seven bottom up equity approaches that sift through opportunities across the breadth of the markets. Across the funds, the mandate is to participate in opportunities that arise from a mix of emergent themes, corporate actions and of course attractiveness of core fundamentals. The objective of all the respective funds under management is to deliver superior risk adjusted returns from an absolute perspective.

Investment Philosophy

Unifi BC-AD Fund PMS follows a Fundamentally Driven philosophy. This is a buy & hold strategy where investments are based on sustained growth of the Indian economy. Here, the time frame is 2-3 years.

UNIFI provides PMS services that have all thematic portfolios. As always, markets fancy few sectors that have done well in the past ignoring the rest.

India’s economy has a high proportion of unorganised businesses which are estimated to account for about 35% of the GDP. As the economy grows in size from the current $ 2.6 Tn to $ 5 Tn over the next decade, it will traverse certain social, technology, scale, legal, taxation and regulatory changes. These changes are likely to challenge the current business models of unorganized players in certain sectors. As a result, well established organized players in such sectors will gain market share along with improving margins, potentially generating very high earnings growth. The BC-AD fund has been structured to benefit from this imminent migration of market share from the unorganised segment to organised players. The fund would be investing in well-established organised players who would be gaining market share from the unorganised players thus posting higher revenue growth rate than that of their industry. The high top line growth along with the benefits of operating leverage would help them record a superior earnings trajectory over the next decade.
