In our previous episode, we explained a unique aspect of our portfolio and the importance of Capital Calls to our investors. This week, we want to emphasize the significance of benchmarking and how it pertains to our investment approach. We had discussed this during our quarterly call.

What does benchmark mean to us_img1

By providing this information, we aim to convey the following points:

  1. Our investment strategy is focused on bottom-up analysis, making us benchmark-agnostic investors.
  2. Short-term returns may not align with the benchmark, and therefore, comparing our fund’s performance over shorter periods, such as quarterly or yearly, would not be an accurate representation of our performance.
  3. We maintain an active portfolio management approach with an annual churn rate of 20%.
  4. We have been outperforming benchmark over 3 year time horizon, which was depicted in the track record chart the previous week

We trust that these information is beneficial in presenting our fund to clients.
