Capitalmind PMS has three active Equity Portfolios

Capitalmind Surge India

Surge India is Capitalmind's fundamentally picked set of stocks expected to see significant tailwinds over the next five to seven years enabling significant earnings growth.

The portfolio is based on the significant shifts playing in India. We call them the महा trends (Maha trends).

Some of the areas we expect these trends will play out over the next few years are in Financialization, Logistics, Domestic consumption, Import substitution, Electrification of transport among others.

The portfolio also looks to identify special situation opportunities, for example, unlocking of value of higher return on capital businesses from parent companies, consolidation within a previously fragmented industry among others.

Check out our video on the core philosophy of the Surge India portfolio.

Capitalmind Adaptive Momentum

Capitalmind Adaptive Momentum is the first (and only PMS) quantitative investment strategy built on the momentum factor. It identifies stocks showing relatively stronger price momentum than the broader market. After five full years of live operation, we summarised our real-world learnings from running probably the best Momentum PMS portfolio in India: Demystifying Momentum.

The momentum factor has been proven globally through extensive research by academics and practitioners. Two professors at the University of California, Prof. Jegadees Narasimhan and Prof. Sheridan Titman published the seminal paper on momentum in 1993. Since then, several other papers have corroborated the existence of Momentum as a factor capable of delivering excess returns when applied over the long term.

At Capitalmind, we have explored the momentum factor since 2017. We published our white paper on Momentum in Indian markets, confirming that it works in India. For an in-depth look at Momentum investing, read Understanding Momentum Investing.

We built on the core idea of momentum and rigorously backtested various strategy implementations. The Capitalmind PMS Momentum portfolio has been live since 2019.

Equity markets trend up nearly 70% of the time. However, they occasionally experience deep corrections of 50% or more. While no equity investment strategy is immune to corrections, a strategy that can limit its downside to the extent of or slightly better than the benchmark has a significant chance of outperforming over the long term.

The presence of inclusion criteria has worked, in real market conditions, to reduce exposure to equities during broad market corrections, allowing for reduced exposure when markets are at their weakest.

With a live track record of five years, it is India's first (and probably only) Momentum-based PMS strategy.

Capitalmind Resilient

Designed to harness the Low Volatility factor, it identifies stocks showing relatively lower price volatility than the broader market. An ideal complement to a momentum / growth-oriented portfolio.

Based on research by Pim Van Vliet, titled 'High Returns from Low Risk: A remarkable stock market paradox', Low Volatility investing looks to harness the behavioural bias most investors display to buy stocks with lottery-like return profiles based on their high growth estimates. Conversely, investors tend to undervalue low-volatility stocks, as they are perceived to be boring or unexciting. This creates a mispricing opportunity for low-volatility investors.

Learn more about Capitalmind Resilient.

Our backtests of Low Volatility investing in Indian markets found that the strategy gravitates toward highly liquid, large and mid-cap stocks that are not "buzzing" in financial media, at the time of portfolio inclusion.

Do I need to invest minimum 50L in each Capitalmind PMS Investment Strategy?

No, your total investment amount should meet the SEBI-mandated minimum of 50L. Capitalmind PMS offers the flexibility to allocate this amount across one or more strategies depending on your specific needs. What's more, our Client Advisor team periodically review and recommends modifications to the allocation to ensure you stay on track.

How do I, as a Capitalmind PMS client, keep track of my investment performance?

Capitalmind PMS clients get access to a secure industry-leading client dashboard, which gives full visibility into their holdings, realised and unrealised gains, and performance since inception versus the benchmark. Clients can view their overall portfolio and drill down into specific investment strategy performance, which gets updated daily. The client dashboard is also available as an app on iOS and Android to check your investments on the go.

How do taxes work in the PMS?

Capital gains realised by the portfolios, both short-term and long-term, are taxable. The Capitalmind PMS client dashboard provides detailed Tax PnL statements with holding-level and transaction-level details in conveniently downloadable formats to calculate tax payable. Most clients choose to download the tax PnL statements quarterly and send them to their tax accountant to file advance tax as and when applicable.

Does Capitalmind PMS optimise taxes with tax-loss harvesting?

To the extent the portfolio strategies allow, we offset realised gains to reduce tax impact. However, sometimes there aren't any losses available to offset gains (that’s really a good problem to have).
