About the India Model Portfolio:
The portfolio is well researched and designed considering a long-term investment horizon (>10 years). It consists of a top-down selection of high-growth stocks along with some stable value stocks. This is done to balance the overall risk of the portfolio. Some of the stocks also pay good dividends and are a sweetener to the portfolio returns.The sectoral breakdown is as follows:
Banking and Finance Sector (15%)
Banking and Finance is still a highly underpenetrated sector in India. With the formalization of the economy, financial institutions are becoming more and more valuable. As per the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), India’s banking sector is sufficiently capitalized and well-regulated. The financial and economic conditions in the country are far superior to any other country in the world. Credit, market, and liquidity risk studies suggest that Indian banks are generally resilient and have withstood the global downturn well. Read more about this here.
Enhanced spending on infrastructure, speedy implementation of projects, and continuation of reforms are expected to provide further impetus to growth in the banking sector. All these factors suggest that India’s banking sector is poised for robust growth as rapidly growing businesses will turn to banks for their credit needs. The India Model portfolio contains equally weighted 3 stocks having 5% allocation each and estimated earnings growth of double digits over the coming decade.
Cold Chain and Logistics Sector (15%)
Cold chain logistics is expected to grow at 20% CAGR over the next 5-10 years. This is also due to its transformation from conventional cold storage to modern storage space.
