Subbu's Solution

How critical is the NPA's issue in the banking sector? Do you have banking stocks in your portfolio?
Quantum Long Term Equity Fund (QLTEF) has banking stocks in its portfolio. Please click here to view last month's factsheet to know the extent to which we are exposed to banking stocks. While NPA's are critical to the banking sector - QLTEF owns banks in which the banking analyst is able to make some estimate of the risk. So the expected NPA is broadly factored in, secondly QLTEF has invested in these banks when the valuations were very favourable. The RBI and government are closely monitoring the situation and necessary action could follow soon. What our fund managers look at is also beyond the numbers, do the managements in these banks have the right mindset? Do they have the will and the ability to take on this and any other problem that may emerge and resolve it in a manner that does not affect the retail shareholder and customer? Only if all the qualitative and quantitative boxes are ticked, do we invest in these stocks. Please take note that the response here with respect to the banking stocks held in the portfolio of QLTEF is not a buy or sell recommendation for such banking stocks.
