Nomura Funds Ireland – India Equity Fund
Our India Equity Fund is a concentrated strategy investing in Indian equities, aiming to deliver a high excess return. The strategy offers an attractive opportunity for investors to benefit from the high growth potential from Indian companies, driven by the dynamic domestic economy, Modi-reform and young population.
- Benchmark: MSCI India.
- Holdings: 25-30 stocks.
- Outperformance target: 3%-5% p.a.
- Tracking Error Range: usually 6%-10% (rolling 3 year basis).

- More than 10 years track record – strategy incepted in March 2005.
We believe the most effective way to add value consistently in India is through original fundamental research and analysis; market inefficiencies at the individual stock-level are much greater than at the macro-level. Thus, we spend most time and resource here and stock selection is our primary source of added value.
- Bottom-up approach is based on fundamental research, supported by a large number of visits to Indian companies, including their suppliers and clients by our highly experienced portfolio management team.
- Stock selection is supported by a country specific India stock model with a sector overlay.
- Leverage on the established investment management platform of the core team. Lead manager Vipul Mehta and Co-manager Vipin Kapoor are dedicated to managing India equities portfolios since their inception. Both managers are natives; understand the culture, key issues and opportunities. They travel frequently to India and meet with the management teams of companies, suppliers, employees, etc., but are based at NAM Singapore away from the ‘noise’ of the Indian marketplace.
- We follow a wide and unconstrained investment universe (typically non-market cap biased) which offers us the greatest opportunity and flexibility to select stocks which look attractive on our initial screening. However, we maintain a concentrated investment with 25-30 high conviction stocks to achieve high excess return.
