Investment Philosophy

We are bottom-up fundamental investors adhering to the value investing philosophy as practiced by Philip Fisher, Warren Buffet, Prem Watsa and other stalwarts.

We live by a simple principle when it comes to stock market investing
“When profits of the company go up, stock prices go up and vice versa”

Our Investment Philosophy
“Buy quality businesses at reasonable valuations and hold till the company executes.”
What is a quality business?
  • Business has a competitive advantage – a moat
  • Consistent high Return on Equity & Return on Capital Employed
  • Low / No Debt
  • Honest Management, sense of stewardship

Portfolio Composition
We do not categorize our investments into small/mid/large cap stocks. but buy businesses that have a demonstrated superior execution capabilities in the past, hold promise for the future and are available at cheap enough valuations.

Our model portfolio typically consists of 8-10 high quality businesses.
The average market-capitalization of our model portfolio is Rs 7,000 Cr.

Workshop Participant Forensic Accounting for Investors – Mumbai on 22nd Dec-19

I saw some distinct and new techniques to read annual reports and get more qualitative information about corporate governance from annual reports. I had stopped tracking small caps (as small caps are usually more prone to corporate governance lapses) in last 2 years. Now, I see tracking more small caps using the techniques I learnt in the workshop.

I liked the structure of the workshop. I could directly lift the content and put it to use immediately. I have prepared a checklist and tightened my process of stock picking using content of workshop.

Feedback about the Workshop
The workshop was very insightful and helped me to learn how to see the red flags in a company before investing.
It was a pleasure learning from you Amey Sir. The main takeaway from the workshop is to look at every company as “guilty until proven innocent”.
Thank You.
