Global Public Market investment instruments that focus on investing in themes over and above individual stocks with the goal to:

  • Enable much better returns compared to leading indices

  • Reduced risk via focussed metrics such as Sharpe Ratio, Max Drawdown and Volatility

  • Investing across the entire value chain of the theme i.e. commodities, debt funds, stocks and ETFs

Why Global Investing?

Global Investing has proven to have the below advantages in contrast to portfolios that are heavily India focussed:

  1. Value For Money: Indian Index is considerably more expensive than that of US. Investors have fewer choices: Sensex P/E is 22% higher; P/BV is 20% lower vs. DJIA

  2. Lower Risk:  Standard deviation for Indian Index is higher vs US: <1% over 3 years; 3% over 10 years; coupled with FX benefit of 5.07% over last 5 years and low correlation between the two markets (0.36) making diversification real

  3. Investing In The Future: Indian Index has a stronger tilt towards traditional industries rather than innovative companies.

    1. Top 5 Sensex stocks: RIL, HDFC, HDFC Bank, Infosys, ICICI

    2. Top 5 DJIA stocks: Apple, MSFT, JPMC, Visa, J&J

  4. Greater IPO Opportunities: Little Sensex activity in FY19: $1.5 Bn raised in India vs $32 Bn raised in US Vs. 2018: India saw a 66% decline in funds raised vs. no change in US
