The Flameback, a specific species of woodpecker, can be found in the southern region of India.
Woodpeckers are an intriguing bunch for their toughness, dedication, and self-discipline. Each day, they diligently and quietly carry out their hard task of pecking to snag insects for their meals.
Compare this to an eagle, which embodies more of a liberated spirit, traversing various landscapes for a substantial catch but might face some days without food.
Woodpeckers may seem more monotonous in their lifestyle, yet it’s questionable if they ever suffer from hunger.
Similarly, we strive to embody The Flameback through:
Ignore the Noise
"The man who can do the average thing when everyone else around him is losing his mind.”, Napoleon's Definition of Military Genius
Markets are captivating because they tell stories. However, because these stories involve money and emotions, they generate a lot of noise that can distract and influence your thinking and actions.
We prefer to switch off the TV, keep our heads down and do the hard work of being led by our reasoning and research based on data rather than by emotions and biases.
Understand Markets Through Research and Analyzing Patterns
The market puzzle can be solved by finding and understanding patterns that drive investment returns. These Patterns encompass market anomalies, fundamental factors, market inefficiencies, and behavioural science principles.
We search for persistent, investable, logical, cost-effective patterns and offer repeatable sources of return.
When we identify patterns that meet the above criteria, we structure them around rule-based decision-making, codify the strategy, and rigorously test, analyze the results, and refine them.
We take a less subjective and more disciplined approach to investing—a process we can implement consistently and stick with, even in challenging market environments.
We don't try to guess what the markets might do tomorrow or one year from now but quietly implement our strategies believing that we are better researchers than forecasters.
Avoiding Human Biases
Once patterns are identified, we structure it around rule-based decision-making, by focusing on objective analysis and research rather than relying solely on intuition or emotions.
Based on a client's objectives, constraints, and preferences, we advise creating investment portfolios with the appropriate allocations to our various proprietary investment strategies, equity funds, fixed-income funds and other investments.
Within Comfort Level
We customize portfolios also to try to limit volatility, especially during hazy times, to the comfort level of our clients.
Our clients should sleep well regardless of the market environment.
Long Term Oriented
Our primary goal is to create substantial wealth by consistently compounding returns over a long period and have the freedom to be steadfast in this pursuit without paying too much attention to short term volatility and noise around us.
Partnership Based Client Relationship
We diligently fulfill our responsibility of managing our clients' funds with the highest level of professionalism and care.
In essence, our aim is not to look for multi-baggers or be driven by human emotions but to work persistently, leveraging a research-intensive approach and disciplined execution of strategies.
