Fund Management
AW Commodity Model Fund

Investment Process

3 steps of systematic wealth creation process forms the foundation of the equity products which are fine-tuned as per product specific mandate.

The entire commodity universe is broken into 4 sectors:

A. Energy  B. Precious Metals  C. Base Metals  D. Agricultural & Others

As investment is done through Futures, all commodities have an in-built carry model that maximizes roll yield.

A host of both global and local macroeconomic factors encompassing different facets of growth and inflation are analyzed to form sector views.

Individual commodity funds are selected based on the liquidity and regulatory profile for the different sectors.

The individual commodities are then analyzed through our NV proprietary intelligent system which is a consolidated view created by integrating supply-demand fundamentals, seasonality, momentum, sentiment and fund flows.

The portfolio optimization then takes place across both the commodity and sector level to minimize risk.

The long-short tactical overlays are placed to exploit more short term opportunities created by seasonality, momentum differences and liquidity patterns.

Investment Philosophy

Commodities as an asset class have equity like risk return profile but with a negative to neutral correlation to equities providing a high potential for portfolio and macroeconomic diversification. Moreover, commodities are uniquely placed to protect an investment portfolio from inflation and due to the "real" nature of assets protect the purchasing power


The objective of NV All Weather Commodity Model Fund in India is to work in multiple environments by investing in a diversified portfolio of commodity funds in India constructed to minimize volatility and augmented with systematic long-short overlays to account for supply demand and momentum differences. The recommended investment horizon for this strategy over 2-3 years.

There are many investors who are hesitant about investing in commodities, but commodity ETFs (exchange traded fund) make the commodity trading accessible to just every class of investor. We, at Narnolia, offer some of the best commodity funds in India, especially designed to meet the financial preferences of each investor.

Know your Portfolio Risk Measures: Your Portfolio quality is higher even if your steadier returns.

Alpha Alpha is the excess return of the fund over the benchmark.
Beta Beta is a measure of the risk of the portfolio in comparison to the benchmark. A value of Beta <1 means lower risk than the benchmark while a Beta >1 means the risk is higher than the benchmark.
Annual Tracking Error Tracking Error is the divergence of the portfolio in comparison to the benchmark. It explains the excess risk in the porfolio as compared to the benchmark. It should be understood along with the Information Ratio.
Information Ratio Information Ratio(IR) explains the risk adjusted performance of the fund against the benchmark. IR is the ratio of portfolio excess returns (against the benchmark) divided by the Tracking Error. IR>1 is very good as it means that the excess return generated was greater than the excess risk vis-a-vis the benchmark.
Maximum Drawdown Maximum Drawdown is the maximum historical loss realized by the portfolio on a Mark to Market (MTM) basis. It indicates the maximum downside risk over a specified time period. A Maximum Drawdown lower than the benchmark indicates a better risk-adjusted portfolio.
