Rupeeting Core Portfolios | Strategy

Updated: Aug 17, 2023

Strategy 💡

Rupeeting's core portfolios are diversified and low-cost strategies that are meant to be the core holdings of investors. The strategy aims to invest across 5 asset classes through ETFs. The objective is to outperform corresponding balanced mutual funds net of fees.

Investment Methodology ⚙️

The Rupeeting Core investment process involves a mix of quantitative and deep fundamental research. The strategy aims to use extensive data crunching, portfolio construction models and market expertise to determine optimum weightage for the constituents of the portfolio.

The resulting portfolio consists of 5 asset classes, weights of which are such that the overall portfolio maximises returns for the amount of risk in the portfolio.

These portfolios are constantly monitored for updated data, metrics and forecasts. While the rebalancing frequency is quarterly, changes in views on asset classes or underlying instruments may deem a change even in the interim.

Investment Process 🎮

The investment process for Rupeeting's Core Strategy is two-fold - (1) Asset Allocation and (2) Portfolio Optimisation. The process across the two consists of:

1. Universe Definition

We include all major and investable asset classes in India, for which corresponding ETF instruments are available - equities (large, mid and small cap), debt (government and corporate), gold and international stocks.

2. Portfolio Branching

We define the amount of risk allocation for each of the three branches of the Core Strategy - Aggressive, Balanced and Conservative. For the sake of simplicity and standardisation, we use SEBI's categorisation of mutual fund schemes. We set the same brackets for our strategies:

Aggressive 🐴 (Percentage of Debt: 20-35%; Percentage of Risky Assets: 65-80%),

Balanced 🦉 (Percentage of Debt: 40-60%; Percentage of Risky Assets: 40-60%), and

Conservative 🐻 (Percentage of Debt: 75-90%; Percentage of Risky Assets: 10-25%)

3. Quantitative Methods

For the risky assets, we determine weights and allocation of capital in the portfolio basis The Modern Portfolio Theory, which conceptualises the Efficient Portfolio - maximum return expectation for given variance. The inputs required for this are forecasted returns and covariance between asset classes. While we use historical data and a reduction of estimation error for the covariance, we fall back on research for determining returns.

4. Fundamental Research

Historical returns make little sense in portfolio construction, since portfolio are built for the future. For forecasting returns, we rely on a two-step method incorporating the Capital Asset Pricing Model and research from our highly experienced investment team.

5. Portfolio Enhancement

Once forecasted returns are plugged in and the model throws out optimal portfolio weights, we use the Fama-French model to incorporate market factors like value and/or size.

We then use additional asset classes like Gold and International Stocks to further enhance the portfolio - increasing returns, and reducing risk.

6. Instrument Selection

Once we have the optimal asset-class weights and the portfolio composition in hand, we turn to selecting the right instruments to fit our requirements. Since ETFs track the underlying index, we use a rather simplistic constraint-based approach to select instruments.

Our criteria includes and is not limited to price (to limit the minimum investment amount on the portfolio), volume (to minimise tracking error and ensure timely execution), tracking error, and disparity between the price and NAV of the ETF.

Monitoring and Rebalancing 🤓

Portfolio construction is just the beginning of the investment journey. Portfolio management and disciplined assessment and rebalancing are keys to generating wealth consistently over the long term. Our singular objective - make you more money!
