Index Alpha -
The Passively Managed Core

Index Alpha is a passively managed fund aimed at generating long term wealth. It is suitable to build a corpus to meet investor specific investment horizons such as retirement, buying a home etc.

How Index Alpha works (Quantitative Investment Process)

Passive investment strategies aren’t lazy, but insightful. These time tested aren’t aimed at timing and beating the market. The emphasis is on systematic investment with a disciplined approach to minimize the risks. When financial markets show signs of turbulence or downtrend, Index Aplha’s tactical fund allocation takes cover until good conditions or an uptrend resumes.

Salient features of Index Alpha

  • Tactical fund allocation is done to manage financial risks.
  • Protects the portfolio from extreme drawdowns.
  • This is not a tool to enhance returns by timing the market.
  • It may underperform during the roaring bull markets or sharp V-shaped recoveries, as its complete focus is on minimizing risks.
  • Simple to understand, but tough to follow approach.

Index Alpha Serves Two Key Purposes -

Building corpus by leveraging market
Reducing risk to preserve the corpus
This can be understood with the following examples:

Index Alpha Balanced Portfolio observed a lower fall compared to Nifty 50 and also recovered faster in the aftermath. Thus, performed “true to label” by protecting the downside

Bringing Long - Term
Capital Growth

Under the Core Equity methodology of investment, long-term measures of low volatility, momentum and value/quality are blended in a systematic manner to overcome common behavioral biases. As a stool needs at least three legs to stand on, we feel a Core Equity portfolio should be a multifactor portfolio comprising at least three factors. This results in the addition of two least correlated factors: Momentum and Value/Quality to the equation. A combination of three factors reduces cyclicality of factor performance.

Through this, we aim to generate long-term capital growth from an actively managed portfolio of equities with a large cap tilt.

The Core Equity portfolio only includes those stocks which pass our strict stock selection filters. A disciplined and robust process governs all our actions throughout the process.

Rebalancing at a predetermined frequency ensures “Winners Stay, Losers Go”
