Investment Style and Portfolio Strategy


Our primary equity strategy is to build a portfolio of high-growth companies that may have achieved reasonable scale or size. Our focus is primarily on identifying companies with robust business models, sustainable competitive advantages, and superior return ratios compared to their industry peers.

Our investment process adheres to the INQUBE philosophy framework, considering key factors such as business fundamentals, management quality, and valuation.

To minimize concentration risk, our fund has the flexibility to invest in companies across various market capitalizations, adopting a sector-agnostic approach. Additionally, we may explore arbitrage opportunities within the Indian equities market.

In addition to equity investments, our scheme also allocates funds to debt securities and money market instruments. Investment strategy focuses on capturing term and credit spreads and maintaining a balance between safety, liquidity, and return aspects of various investments.

Our investment approach combines a top-down perspective for assessing interest rate trends and sector allocation with a bottom-up approach for selecting individual securities and instruments.

The fund management team will take an active view of interest rate movements by keeping a close watch on various parameters of the Indian economy, as well as developments in global markets. Investment views and decisions will be taken based on factors such as prevailing interest rate scenario, quality of the security/instrument, maturity profile, liquidity, growth prospects, and any other relevant factors in the opinion of the fund management team.

Frequently Asked Questions


Bajaj Finserv Balanced Advantage Fund is designed to strategically allocate assets by dynamically adjusting the balance between equity and fixed income. This method is based on a fundamental and behavioural model, which helps in avoiding emotional decision-making influenced by market dynamics. The primary goal of this fund is to aim for risk-adjusted returns throughout different market conditions, ultimately assisting investors in reaching their medium to long-term financial objectives.

One should invest in this fund because the fund’s investment approach is rooted in the first principles thinking that the equities market is influenced by both fundamental and behavioural factors. Fundamental factors include economic variables (GDP growth, interest rates, inflation, industrial production, current account deficit, etc.) and corporate aggregates (revenue outlook, earnings outlook, balance-sheet strength, etc.). Behavioural factors on the other hand, encompass elements such as investor sentiment, herd behaviour, underlying biases, and other similar considerations. Additionally, our fund management team also simultaneously monitors behavioural elements prevalent in the market, utilizing an internally built composite indicator. This indicator is based on multiple factors which captures trends in different markets such as currency fluctuations, commodities trends, fixed income premiums of key securities, and prevailing liquidity momentum in the market.

Bajaj Finserv Balanced Advantage Fund broadly works on two factors:

1) Fundamental:
a. 1 Year forward earnings per share
b. Fair Value Multiple (Target PE Ratio) that is derived on the basis of growth premium, interest rate, and composition adjustments
2) Sentimental:
a. Currency
b. Commodity
c. Fixed Income
d. Equity
