Investment strategy The investment strategy of the Scheme will be to invest in a basket of securities based on combining existing traditional fundamental, bottom-up financial analysis along with a rigorous analysis on the environmental, social and governance aspects of the company. The ESG analysis will be based on a comprehensive ESG framework adopted from some of the global best practices. The ESG process will be executed at various levels.
Sector level screening: The scheme will exclude sectors/themes that are deemed harmful from a societal perspective. We will avoid investment in companies operating in those industries and maintain that exclusion on an ongoing basis. For example we will not invest in companies involved in Cluster Munitions, Anti- Personnel Mines, and Chemical and Biological Weapons. We will not hold any security that is involved in the production, stockpiling, transfer and use of these weapons.
Stock level screening: Apart from sector exclusion list, we will not invest in stocks which throw up ESG red flags as a part of our review, even if the company is from a sector that is not a part of exclusion list. Portfolio Construction: We believe that evaluating a company from an ESG perspective requires a detailed qualitative approach that should complement our existing fundamental based investment process workings rather than a simplistic standalone scoring based inclusion/exclusion matrix for individual stocks. We intend to be active owners of the companies in which we invest and to reflect environmental, social and governance (ESG) value drivers within our investment process by following below steps.
Step 1: Initial detailed ESG assessment of every company at the time of its inclusion in the investment universe will be carried out. The assessment will be based on a detailed sector- specific questionnaire that will be completed by the analyst in discussion with the company. Thus every company will undergo a detailed ESG due diligence in addition to the fundamental ground work before entering the universe. Step 2: Ongoing detailed assessment and evaluation of ESG issues or concerns will be carried out periodically to ensure that changes to the operating environment are captured. In case of any concerns on ESG front indicating any risk that may be detrimental to the long term shareholder value or in case of no evidence of any steps taken to strengthen safety measures, may lead to exclusion of the security from the universe. Step 3: In case of any specific ESG issue facing the company, a detailed review of the same to be carried out by the analyst and the impact discussed with the company management. Step 4: Active engagement with the company management, ownership in terms of improved disclosure of ESG matters and voting on proxy items keeping ESG aspect in mind.
While the more traditional financial indicators and the analysis of business strategy form the basis of investment decisions, ESG factors may impact the investments in two ways – first through size of position given its impact on the inherent risk to our financial forecasts and secondly through our view of the ultimate long term value of company based on its readiness to face some of these issues, from both an upside and downside perspective. We will primarily focus on the longer term impact of ESG issues rather than unduly weighting factors which are currently occupying market attention.
The underlying theme driving the relative allocation will be QMML research‟s ability to identify cross asset, cross market inflexion points. This quantitative approach is based on our proprietary VLRT framework, wherein we incorporate the full spectrum of data along deeper aspects related to the three axis of Valuation, Liquidity, and Risk appetite and view it in a dynamic setting – Time, thus, forming the multi-dimensional VLRT framework. The formulation of this macro narrative guides our micro level stock selection.
QMML‟s predictive analytics toolbox formulates a multidimensional research perspective to various asset classes. Research has shown that optimal entry and exit points into various asset classes can be identified through the identification of bouts of extreme greed and fear in the market. QMML differentiates itself by not only being able to identify bouts of greed and fear, but by its ability to quantify bouts of euphoria and capitulation. This helps guide us in identifying the optimal level of cash/debt Page 5 allocation in the scheme.
QMML may, from time to time, review and modify the Scheme‟s investment strategy if such changes are considered to be in the best interests of the unitholders and if market conditions warrant it. Though every endeavor will be made to achieve the objective of the Scheme, the AMC / Sponsors / Trustee do not guarantee that the investment objective of the Scheme will be achieved. No guaranteed returns are being offered under the Scheme.
