Additional Information

* We see portfolio management as Marathon, not as 100 meter Sprint. We prefer to be the 'Turtle' in the race.

* First step of investment process is optimum asset allocation. Considering YOUR unique return requirement and   risk tolerance, we decide on Strategic Asset Allocation for your portfolio.

* For equity investment, we include fundamental and technical analysis in our stock selection process.

* Over long term, wealth is created by large, bluechip established corporations who have passed the test of adverse economic conditions several times.

* To get included in the portfolio, company has to have strong balance sheet and long history of generating operating cashflow, more than that required for business development.

* Management must be ready to reward shareholders by paying regular dividends.

* We find such companies across the globe.

* We like companies incorporated in a jurisdiction having stringent reporting requirements. However, we like the companies having operations around the globe, including emerging markets. That gives portfolio exposure to high growth of emerging markets.

* We diversify portfolio across different asset classes including alternatives, geographies, sectors, currencies and individual companies.

* Our rule based approach to money management keeps emotions out of investment decisions during euphoria and/or distress.

* Our rebalancing rules are based on the facts that in short term, equity prices may widely fluctuate around its intrinsic value.

* However, prices tend to have 'reversion to mean' characteristics.

* Rebalancing maintains asset class exposure within predetermined strategic range.

* Our tactical asset allocation rules help us change the asset allocation exposure in times of  extreme euphoria or distress. These rules are based on fundamental and/or technical parameters. This helps us reduce the risk in the portfolio or position us for higher returns.
