SEBI Portfolio Manager Reg No. INP000000787

In EQ PMS, the portfolio manager curates a unique focused portfolio (usually 10-12 stocks) for each client based on the timing and quantum of his/her investments.

Compared to the common industry practice of proportionally allocating model portfolio shares regardless of the price, our proprietary daily model portfolio approach is price conscious and mitigates the risk of overpaying for any stock.

Investment Approach

Long-term capital appreciation through equity investing is the investment objective.

Product Overview

  • Investment decisions are arrived at through a long-term, bottom-up approach.
  • All intelligent investing is value investing. We predominantly follow the principles of classical value investing.
  • Investment decisions may also be based on growth, momentum, or event arbitrage strategies.
  • Investments would be made only in listed Indian equities. Though we are market cap agnostic, we predominantly invest in small/midcap stocks where we find value.
  • Nifty 50, India’s flagship index, would be the comparable benchmark.
  • Investee companies are constantly monitored, and the investment rationale is validated time and again.
