Asset Management

At Motilal Oswal Asset Management Company (MOAMC), our endeavor has been to offer focused equity funds and PMS strategies based on ourstrength i.e Equity. We inherited the equity expertise from our sponsor, Motilal Oswal Securities Limited which has 30 years of experience in the same field. Our equity offerings have been riding on our investment philosophy, Buy Right : Sit Tight where Buy Right means buying quality companies at a reasonable price and Sit Tight means staying invested in them for a longer time to realize the full growth potential of the stocks. This philosophy has helped us becomea company that has an Equity AUM of over Rs. 33,200 Crores across Mutual Fund and Portfolio Management Services as on March 2018.

Buy Right Stock Characteristics

  • ‘Q’uality denotes quality of the business and management.
  • ‘G’rowth denotes growth in earnings and sustained RoE.
  • ‘L’ongevity denotes longevity of the competitive advantage or economic moat of the business.
  • ‘P’rice denotes our approach of buying a good business for a fair price rather than buying a fair business for a good price.

Sit Tight Approach

  • Buy and Hold : We are strictly buy and hold investors and believe that picking the right business needs skill and holding onto these businesses to enable our investors to benefit from the entire growth cycle, needs even more skill.
  • Focus : Our portfolios are high conviction portfolios with 20 to 25 stocks being our ideal number. We believe in adequate diversification but over-diversification results in diluting returns for our investors and adding market risk.
