Investment Philosophy

All Weather Fixed Income Fund is a proprietary fixed income fund focused on maximizing total return potential while protecting principal. The fund strives to deliver attractive returns through the ups and downs of bond market cycles while emphasizing quality, diversification and flexibility. It aims to form a core holding of a person's financial portfolio and can be used as a tax efficient substitute for fixed deposits.


The key objective of the All Weather Fixed Income Fund is to outperform State Bank of India 5-year fixed deposit rate (the fund's benchmark) on a sustainable risk adjusted basis. This is done by managing the interest rate exposure of the portfolio while adding alpha opportunistically based on a rigorous bottom up proprietary model. The portfolio construction is optimized to maximize quality, avoid concentration risk and increase flexibility in terms of both duration and credit. Risk is managed on a forward looking basis to deliver strong long term returns based on a combination of income and capital appreciation.

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.
