Predictability of Outcomes with Quantum - A track record of consistent performance across market cycles

Various macroeconomic events are poised to influence the investment landscape such as the general elections, annual budget, US presidential elections, potential rate cuts by the US Fed, etc.

Amidst these uncertainties, you can rely on a fund house that offers a unique capability to predict outcomes in an unpredictable world. Quantum’s stable equity approach ensures that the actual performance closely matches the portfolio’s estimated upside potential across market cycles. At Quantum, our research team analyses and estimates 2 year forward upside potential based on the scheme investment portfolio..

The Outcome of our Disciplined Research and Investment Process has a great ‘Fit’: ‘Stirred, Not Shaken’ by two massive Global Macro Events: GFC and Covid

The above graph shows the estimate of rebased GAV of Quantum Long Term Equity Value Fund – Direct Plan – Growth Option on the basis of Upside Potential of the portfolio (equal to the sum total of weight of each stock (multiplied by) the percentage difference between the current market price and the sell limits assigned to each stock in the portfolio by the in-house research teams). The performance returns are net of fees and expenses, and assuming reinvestment of all dividends and other earnings. Past performance may or may not be sustained in the future. The value axis for graph 2 has been plotted based on logarithmic scale of 2. Source: Internal Research, Bloomberg Finance L.P., As of Dec 30, 2023.

As can be seen in the graph above, the estimated upside potential has  been close to the actual Net Asset Value (NAV) over the years, remaining relatively stable even in the face of two major global macro events—the Global Financial Crisis (GFC) and the COVID-19 pandemic—in the past two decades. This enduring estimation is a direct outcome of our rigorous research and investment process.

The estimate indicates that the Portfolio should have increased 9.8 times in 17 Years, 13.8% CAGR. In reality, the Portfolio NAV Increased By 10.1 times in 17 Years with a 14% CAGR.

The Quantum ELSS Tax Saver Fund

The Quantum ELSS Tax Saver Fund follows the identical value investing style and similar portfolio composition for  Quantum Long Term Equity Value Fund - a fund that delivers in line with its estimated upside potential, showcasing predictable outcomes across market cycles. Similar to Quantum Long Term Equity Value Fund, this fund takes cognizance of liquidity, governance, and valuation parameters to deliver risk adjusted returns.

Wondering if it the right time to invest in ELSS amidst the high valuations in the equity markets?

Though the valuations look marginally higher, there are certain areas which have a margin of safety – certain companies that are undervalued relative to their historical averages that can be identified using our disciplined investment approach.

industry allocation as on December 31, 2023

As you can see, QETSF portfolio has more exposure to banks (23%) and IT (15.30%) which we believe is yet to reach their peak.

Despite having strong fundamentals, Banks haven't fully participated in the recent market rally. The positive credit cycle and a potential improvement in corporate borrowing could support the credit demand. Additionally, stable housing demand and ongoing infrastructure projects are likely to support credit demand.

While IT service companies have seen modest revenue growth, deal wins have been stable. Early indicators suggest a potential easing of the recessionary fears in the US market, which might lead to quicker revenue realization from recent deals. Although few company valuations seem reasonable, there's a chance that earnings could surpass current expectations.

However, note the investment approach is sector agnostic where it follows a bottom-up stock selection focused on identifying stocks based on valuation, integrity screen, and long-term potential. Broadly, the portfolio is positioned for economic revival and limits exposure to overvalued sectors such as consumer staples, where the exposure is zero where the valuations don’t warrant an allocation.
