Investment Philosophy

Foreign Exchange is the largest asset class in the world with a daily turnover of more than 5 trillion USD. Historically, it has also seen low correlation with traditional asset classes such as fixed income & equities. In a truly globalized world as ours, foreign exchange is the main transmission mechanism for maintaining economic and trade balance across the world. Foreign Exchange Funds are one of the best tools to capture growth in a country like ours in midst of increasing productivity and tightening fiscal reforms. Besides, foreign exchange traded funds aim to serve as a hedge against the U.S dollar which is expected to weaken in the long term.


The objective of NV All Weather Foreign Exchange Model Fund is to seek absolute returns by performing a rigorous foreign exchange fundamental analysis and investing in the foreign exchange market. Exposure to currencies will be through investing in the futures & options markets on a no leverage basis (the gross exposure will always be less than 100%). The cash component of the fund will be invested in fixed deposits or, government securities to maximize yield.

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.
