We believe long term wealth creation is a result of dedicated research across various underlying factors. We study the global and domestic socio-economic and political factors, commodity trends, price trends to have a clear idea on the macro developments. On a micro study, we read the annual reports, company’s offer documents, conference calls, interact with management and do plant and site visits and above all, always check the governance standards of the management. We have several quantitative and qualitative checks on a company before we recommend them for investments.
