What are our Investment Philosophies?
Quality of Business & Management
We invest in businesses which have good economics; sustainable and strategic competitive advantage for a long duration; and backed by good & reputed management.
Our investment horizon is long-term
We prefer to adopt the strategy of “Buy & Hold”. For this, we study the fundamentals of the company in depth, evaluate the entire ecosystem, analyse the core values, strategies & plans of management which enable future growth. We seek to gradually build a significant position in businesses which fit our mandate.
The Ownership Angle
Our approach is to estimate the owner’s earnings, and for this we first aim to understand the risks that businesses face, calculate the value based on scope and severity of probable risks.
Value investing is identifying companies which are priced at a significant discount to underlying business value. We look for several elements when analyzing investment ideas like current earnings, cash flow, a realistic recovery trajectory, or transformative events, either in industry structure or change of management, which will improve a company's ability to earn.
We believe that great opportunities are rare and hence we act quickly and bet big when such opportunities surface.
