Creating value necessitates a mental model that goes beyond the obvious. It necessitates a methodical mindset capable of sifting through reams of data and absorbing just the information that is important to identifying value-adding opportunities. This may be compared to looking for a needle in a haystack metaphorically. The investment approach for this fund will seek to select the greatest possibilities from among the following themes.
In a single corporate structure with several enterprises, the value of the individual pieces is frequently less than the value of the whole. A de-merger of various enterprises frees up the financial and management resources needed for each company to flourish. The spin-off fund invests in situations where enterprises have a good chance of realising their full growth potential and attracting a fair market valuation.
Unorganized enterprises make up a large sector of India’s economy, accounting for around 35% of the country’s GDP. Over the next decade, as the economy increases from $ 2.6 trillion to $ 5 trillion, it will face social, technological, scale, legal, taxes, and regulatory changes. These changes are expected to put unorganised companies in certain industries’ current business strategies to the test. As a result, well-established organised firms in such areas will gain market share while boosting margins, potentially resulting in extremely high earnings growth. The BC-AD fund was designed to profit from the impending transfer of market share from unorganised to organised players.
Despite evident growth possibilities, a few parts of the market are mispriced, resulting in equities trading at a substantial discount to their real worth. The reasons could range from most analysts’ lack of understanding of a business to low relative market cap and liquidity, as well as a lack of correlation to benchmark indices. DVD invests in such companies and takes advantage of market inefficiencies.
Rather than being strategic investment firms, many holding companies are run as a group holding companies. This leads to a continual discount in their valuations, but such discounts are not permanent. The Holdco fund seeks out core firms with excellent fundamentals and large valuation discounts that are projected to narrow as the regulatory landscape changes and value convergence occurs in a rising market.
Markets, as usual, favour a few industries that have performed well in the past while ignoring the rest. Few areas, such as speciality chemicals and precision manufacturing, are less well-known, but they have become globally competitive and have access to growing market potential. APJ20 invests in companies that have evolved and are well-positioned to benefit from such opportunities.
The green fund focuses its investments on firms that produce products and services that improve the environment by lowering carbon emissions and/or allowing for more efficient use of natural resources. The sectors identified for establishing the portfolio in the framework of this strategy are emission control, energy efficiency, water management, and waste management.
Insider Shadow Fund:
The Insider Shadow Fund invests in corporations that have repurchased their own stock or in companies whose promoters have purchased extra stock at market prices. This move reflects their belief in the company’s growth prospects or underlying value, which is not reflected in the stock price at the time. The idea is to profit from the market’s eventual balancing of the value-price mismatch.
