Ajit Dayal Bids you Adieu

Posted On Tuesday, Aug 29, 2017

Dear Investors and Believers,

In 2006, we undertook a bold experiment to follow the path of Honesty, Integrity, Transparency and the aspiration to always deliver sensible mutual fund solutions for your investment needs. We have succeeded on this path thanks to your belief and commitment.

From an organisational perspective, it has always been our endeavor to ensure the growth and sustainability of Quantum Asset Management Company Private Limited ("Quantum AMC") beyond the lifetime of specific individuals.

Strong and stable teams across different departments have been developed over the years.

Members of the Boards have, over the years, met with and interacted with many individuals from Quantum AMC.

With the guidance of the Board, the senior members of the management team who are endowed with our core values - along with the core proven skill sets of research and investment - have a solid foundation for the continued success of Quantum Mutual Fund.

The portfolios, particularly for the Quantum Long Term Equity Fund, have been managed by team-led processes: no single individual can claim the wonderful long-term track record that has been established.

A transparent and well-received profit sharing plan and bonus pool implemented since 2012, along with a richly endowed ESOP Trust of Quantum Advisors (Sponsor), ensures that monetary rewards are shared fairly amongst those who have helped Quantum achieve its success. We believe in benevolent capitalism!

Many of you may recall that Quantum Financial Services Pvt Ltd, the "original" Quantum, was set up on January 31, 1990.

What you may not recall is that I was supposed to be on a plane that crashed on February 14, 1990 - Valentine's Day; 14 days after Quantum was born!

Had I been on that plane, Quantum would have been in existence for 14 short, uneventful days – and there would be no one to fight for you in the mutual fund industry!

The explicit and implicit desire to build a solid team that survives and enhances the effort of a single individual probably took hold in my subconscious from that fateful day!

Hence, this desire to build teams.

Hence, the ESOP to spread wealth amongst many.

Hence, the effort to reward the teams who have worked so hard to see Quantum grow with years of dedication of service.

I am blessed to have found dedicated partners and work colleagues with whom we could build an institution. Together we have ridden the many waves of calm and stormy seas and been steadfast in our focus to do what is best for our clients and customers - all held steady by the values of Honesty, Integrity, and Transparency, which is the foundation of our existence. These core values permeate across the organization.

It is these core values and the youthful energy of the team - under the experienced leadership of Jimmy A Patel - which will make many Quantum Leaps in the decades ahead. Jimmy A Patel has been the CEO of Quantum AMC since May 2010. He has been appointed as Managing Director on the Board of Quantum AMC on August 23, 2017.

Make no mistake: my resignation as the Director of Quantum AMC and from the Board Investment Committee, with effect from August 22, 2017, is a sign of strength.

(I have committed to speak at a few Path To Profits every year in different cities!)

To the Members of the Boards of Quantum AMC and Quantum Trustee Company - each of whom distinguished in their respective fields - you have done us the honour of steering us and guiding us with your years of vast experience. Thank you.

Most importantly, I am grateful for all your support as a loyal, committed – and satisfied - believer in this unique experiment of building an institution that cares for you and works for your benefit.

Please accept my everlasting thanks for your belief in Quantum Mutual Fund - and I hope that you will continue to invest in our few, select, sensible mutual funds - as I will continue to!

God Bless,
Ajit Dayal
