1.1 Value Portfolio:

Value portfolio comprises of stocks that are currently underpriced relative to their Earning per Share (EPS) andBook Value per Share (BVPS). Hence, value stocks will have low P/E and P/B ratios compared to other stocks. Earnings of companies that are categorized as value stocks are temporarily depressed; as a result, investors punish these stocks and price fall below the fair value. The rationale for value investing is that because earnings of these companies are only temporarily depressed and will again revert back to the mean, there is potential to capture price appreciation.

1.2 Growth Portfolio:

Growth portfolio comprises of stocks of companies that have higher future earning potential. The rationale for growth investing is that higher expected earnings growth will drive the stock price even higher. Because growth stocks’ price rises rapidly as long as earnings potential is realized, even clients with short investment horizon can invest in growth portfolio.

1.3 Small/Mid Cap Portfolio:

Small Cap/Mid Cap portfolio comprises of stocks of companies that are smaller or average in nature in terms of market capitalization. Because these companies are relatively small and unknown, the potential returns are high because of two reasons: first, as they are small and relatively unknown their price will increase as they grow and expand, and second, because of low price, even a small increment in price will lead to higher return. However, the risks involved in these small companies are also high as they are often in their initial stage of business.

Minimum Time Horizon: 2 years

1.4 Large Cap Portfolio:

Large cap portfolio comprises of stocks of companies with large market capitalization. These companies are well known to investors and have been around for a long time. Hence, the risk involved with these large cap stocks is less compared to small cap stocks. However, because many investors hold these large cap stocks and these stocks are widely followed, they are usually fairly priced.

Minimum Investment Horizon: Negotiable


2.   Non-Discretionary Portfolio Management Service:
