Centrum PMS is in the midst of rebuilding following the departure of its previous CIO. While they have employed a senior resource (Anil Sarin) to help build the business, he recently arrived in 2018, and it may take some time for Centrum to establish itself as a stronger PMS competitor. Another aspect we dislike is the fact that there are too many diverse tactics for a tiny fund company. Their execution and skill in concentrated mid- and small-cap strategies based on their own research methodology, on the other hand, are quite good.
