Samco Active Momentum Fund
What is a Momentum themed Scheme?

It is a thematic fund that invests in stocks that exhibit momentum characteristics and sell those stocks when those stocks lose momentum.

Why does Momentum work?

Momentum works dues to behaviour biases of the investors in the financial markets. Investors are not always rational, they have limits to their control over emotions and are influenced by their own biases such as loss aversion, regret, anchoring and disposition biases. Because of all these human biases, there exists an opportunity in the momentum space which is more consistent and time tested strategy to make an alpha in the stock market.

What is Momentum investing?

It is a strategy to invest in winning stocks which are showing strong momentum. Momentum stocks are such that exhibit positive price momentum – based on the phenomenon that stocks which have performed well in the past relative to other stocks (winners) continue to perform well in the future, and stocks that have performed relatively poorly (losers) continue to perform poorly. The momentum strategy is based on buy high, sell higher or alternatively, cut your losses and let your winners run.

How does Samco define and identify Momentum?

The scheme shall invest in stocks that exhibit momentum characteristics across market capitalisations i.e. Large Caps, Mid-Caps, Small Caps and Micro Cap companies. The fund intends to benefit from momentum in stock prices from short to medium term time frame. The fund makes trades based on trading signals generated by our intelligent algorithm. This algorithm has been developed by studying years of market data including price, volume, volatility, open interest, breakouts, relative strengths and correlations with appropriate weights on various data points. The Momentum investing is based on that gap in time that exists before mean reversion occurs. Momentum is usually seen in the short- to intermediate-term.

What is the universe for stock selection for this fund?

The universe for this fund will be Nifty 750 i.e. Nifty500 stocks and Nifty Micro cap 250 stocks.

How many stocks would the fund hold?

There is no restriction on number of stocks in the fund. The scheme will hold stocks that are in momentum as deemed fit by the fund manager.

Will this fund also follow the HexaShield Framework?

No, this scheme comes under the Distinctive Patterns Strategies which will have its own framework. This scheme does not heavily rely on quality of financials and has more emphasis on price, volume, breakouts and other technical indicators.

What is the benchmark of the scheme?

Nifty500 TRI will be the benchmark of the scheme.

What is the minimum amount of investment in SIP or Lump sum?

In order to invest in this fund the investor needs a minimum amount of:

Lump sum: ₹5,000 & in multiples of ₹1 thereafter

Systematic investment plan (SIP): ₹ 500 & in multiples of ₹1 thereafter

(Subscriptions in this scheme shall be accepted during NFO & be restricted post NFO until further notice.)

HexaShield Frame Work
What is the HexaShield testing Framework?

It is a proprietary framework using AI / ML technology that tests 6 important factors of businesses under various situations. It is not just a back-testing mechanism, but also does scenario analysis to see how a business would do under extreme pressure.

What are the 6 facets of the HexaShield testing framework?
  1. Competitive & Pricing Power Tests
  2. Corporate Governance & Leadership Tests
  3. Balance Sheet & Debt Tests
  4. Cash Flow Tests
  5. Reinvestment and Growth Tests
  6. Regulatory Tests
Why a HexaShield tested fund?

All manufactured products go through thorough quality tests before they ever reach the customers. We are the first fund house to apply the same level of quality testing to our investment processes so that our investor’s money is invested in the high quality efficient companies

What are the attributes of HexaShield tested efficient companies?

They broadly exhibit two attributes -

  1. They can survive during downturns in the economy or during a global crisis like the 2008 financial meltand the recent Covid-19 pandemic.
  2. When an economy is growing, these companies turn into compounding machines with higher rates of growth in earnings as well as sales.
How many companies pass the HexaShield testing framework?

We have analysed over 67,000 global companies and out of these companies only ~125 companies pass the HexaShield testing framework.

Active Share
What is Active Share?

Active share of a fund measures the difference between its constituents and the constituents of the benchmark like Nifty50. Active share ranges between 0% and 100%. If a Fund's active share is 100%, it means that the portfolio of the fund is 100% different from the benchmark and if the active share is 0%, then it is exactly like the benchmark index.

This product is suitable for investors who are seeking* :
