Here is this Week’s Market Wrap!

Time to Build a Multi-Asset Portfolio

A Thread! (1/n)

#multiasset #portfoliomanagement #marketwrap #thread
Most investors have been favouring equity for the last 2 years. Recency bias nudges investors to think that equity is the only asset class to bet on.

It is this bias that kept investors from buying gold. (2/n)

#investors #equity #stockmarket #gold
Investors thought that gold wouldn’t do well. The post-COVID rally in #cryptos spooked the prospects of gold & added to that conviction. But that conviction has proved to be short-lived, and gold did exceptionally well in 2022. (3/n)

@cppinvestments have ~ CAD 520B AUM.

This was really interesting, especially b/w the 10th-43rd minute mark and most of all, at the 22 minute mark when defining investment horizon:


‘Investment horizon = the length of time one can remain committed to an investment strategy that is broadly performing as expected without getting stopped out.’

‘One of the biggest errors we can make as investors is believing we have a longer time to prove out an investment approach than we really do.’

Topical. Very topical.

1/n #RED #ALERT !! This has to REACH MAXIMUM people so people #RETWEET. You will Understand ONLY when you have read it. I have been talking about the Impact of Interest Rates on #AssetAllocation. There could be NOBODY ELSE world-over who understands this, better than #LarryFink Image
2/n In response to a question potential for client rebalancing into fixed income just as rates and markets eventually stabilize.

ANSWER: “Traditional 60-40 allocations are certainly at a balance, and portfolio liquidity profiles have also been impacted.”
3/n “for the first time in years, investors can actually earn very attractive yields without taking much duration or credit risk. Just a year ago, the U.S. two-year treasury notes were yielding 25 basis points”

If #retirement is on the list of #goals you’re investing for, should the current high #inflation lead to any change in your plans? Here’s our take: (1/5)
If annual inflation is at 7%, monthly #expenses of Rs 50,000 per month today, would become Rs 1.9 lakhs per month, in 20 years. At 5% inflation, it would become only Rs 1.3 lakhs per month. It’s best to overestimate, err on the side of caution and invest accordingly. (2/5)
At the same time, it doesn’t help to panic and look only at the short term. Just stick to your #assetallocation, and continue your SIPs. If you think your #SIP investments won’t take you closer to your retirement goal, consider increasing allocation to equity MFs. (3/5)

As the world watches the Twitter vs #ElonMusk saga unfold, and questions, “What is happening?”, let’s take look at a question that’s been on many investors’ minds for a while - “What does #assetallocation actually mean, and why should I care?” (1/6)
The short answer (within 280 characters), is that asset allocation divides your investments across different asset classes like #equity, debt, #gold etc., in order to achieve a specific investment goal, at a certain growth rate. (2/6)
Why is this necessary? For starters, it ensures that you stay invested for the duration needed, while also helping you decide how much you should invest in sub-asset classes like #large-cap or #mid-cap equity, low duration funds or liquid funds. (3/6)

#AMCs are manufacturers and will offer a basket to select from. Would anyone have invested if they came with NFO in March 2020?

It is duty of #Advisors/#Investors to invest or ignore. Just because AMCs offer is no criteria to invest.

Need to introspect before blaming others
Same is the case with IPOs, their timings and their valuations. Companies also come with #IPOs when markets were on a roll.

Again, investors had a choice to invest or ignore.

They invested with GREED and FOMO and now blaming others for these IPOs bombing
Why can't #Investors respect market signals? When going was good, they ignored advice of following #AssetAllocation.

When markets are bleeding, looking at scapegoats for their own actions.

This is #SelfAttribution bias. All good - their skill, all bad - blame it on others

A quick thread on Asset Allocation

Asset Allocation is an essential component of anyone's investment journey!

Fancy translation; asset allocation is the breakdown of different investments in the categories known as asset classes. Stocks, bonds, cash are different asset classes.
Within each asset class, there are more breakdowns that categorize each investment like market capitalization, sectors, geographical locations etc. etc.

But in practicality, asset allocation is to diversify depending on an investor's risk tolerance.
Each asset class has anticipated risk and return based on historical averages.

Based on how much risk an investor is willing to take, a portfolio can be broken down within several categories to provide diversification and balance.

An educational #Thread on Personal Finance Rules we all must know. Have sorted the rules & explained those which are less known to every1 & are very imp. as got many requests to share in details.

Rule of 70
4% Rule for Financial Freedom
100 minus ur age rule
50-30-20 Rule

1) "Rule of 70"

Divide 70 by current #inflation rate to know how fast the value of ur investment will get reduced to half its present value.

Inflation rate of 8% will reduce the value of ur money to 1/2 in 8.75 yrs.

1 should always consider while calculating net returns!

3) "4% Rule for Financial Freedom"

Corpus Required = 25 times of ur estimated Annual Expenses.

E.g- if ur annual expense after 45 years of age is 500,000 and u wish to take VRS then corpus with u required is 1.25 crore.

Put 50% of this in fixed income & 50% into equity.

Lot of #AMCs come up with different ideas, themes, sectors.

These are demands from #Investors as they have done well in recent past.

AMCs are manufacturers & will offer what is in demand.

Final choice to say YES or NO lies entirely with Investors based on their #NEEDs
What should investors choose and what should they ignore. A point by point guide on where and why to invest in certain #themes, #MarketCap bias, #Sectors, #AssetClasses etc.

What should be criteria for these selections and what should guide them to resist from Investing?
Lets start with #Debt:

Keep enough money as 1 year of your expenses as #EmergencyFunds in #LiquidSchemes

You already have enough exposure to debt as:

1. #PPF
2. #TaxFreeBonds
3. #FDs

No need for separate debt allocation if you are investing thru #AssetAllocation (AA) or #DAAF

We have been told following:
1. Time in market more important than timing the market
2. Long Term is 5 yrs plus

Chart will prove the above wrong. First, timing the market is more important then time in the market

Entry as important as Exit points. There are many such examples
Investing at right Valuations is of paramount importance

Cannot buy at any levels and expect good returns going forward

If bought at expensive valuations-long term may change from 5 to 7 to 10 years

From 01-01-08 to 01-01-21 - 14 years NIFTY - 7.63% p.a. -sub optimal returns
When one invests at expensive valuations-like current period, you are eating into future returns

In such instances, tone down your future returns expectations

Otherwise you will have regrets and disappointments in future

Invest wisely without having #FOMO thru #AssetAllocation

2 Our goal is to show, as objectively as possible, the discrepancy between the intrinsic and the current value of the S&P 500 and what it implies for future returns.

@jessefelder @LeutholdGroup @HorizonKinetics @Not_Jim_Cramer @patrick_oshag @5thrule @MacroCharts @macro_srsv Image
3 Our conclusion is that the S&P 500 is not likely to have a positive nominal total return in the next 10 years and a ‘miracle’ would be needed to achieve positive real total returns.

Market participants are going ga-ga over past one & half year returns since March 2020 till now. They are analysing returns in Bits & Pieces.

I do not think many have even participated in this rally as most exited in March 2020, waiting for further corrections
They are conveniently forgetting recent past corrections and drawdown.

Lower the drawdown, faster the bounce backs
Ideal way to look at returns is as a continuous journey. That can give true picture of what Investors would have generated in any scheme.

In spite of euphoria - look at NIFTY Small or Mid Cap 100 returns from 01-01-2018 till 27-09-2021 + attached volatility v/s other DAAFs

My thoughts on NFO of @KotakMF Multi Cap Scheme:

Post recategorizations of schemes, most erstwhile Multi Cap Schemes were converted to Flexi Cap schemes where Fund Managers can decide what Allocation to which Market cap bias.

Thanks to that, there are very few Multi Caps available now which allocates min 25% each to Large, Mid and Small Caps and balance 25% that can be at the discretion of the Fund Manager.
What is the benefit of Multi Caps?

1. It takes away Fund Manager bias of going overweight or underweight in any market Cap bias

2. Most Flexi Caps are overweight on Large Caps

My interview with @MubinaKapasi on the Money Show on @ETNOWlive : what is #AssetAllocation and how does #DAAF fit into AA:

Currently it makes sense to do SIP/STP into DAAF and then switch to Equity on corrections

Don't worry it is my interview only😀😉
At this juncture if you have FOMO, you may regret in future. As Harry Markowitz said in his Thesis on Risk-Reward Tradeoff:

Our Value STP follows 1X, 3X, 100X formula:

Lumpsum in Liquid/Equity Saving and switch into:

1X - in DAAF in Red Zone (current)
3X - in Equity in Yellow Zone
100X - Equity in Green Zone

Many have asked me about spate of IPOs and NFOs launches and my thoughts. Should they invest or not?

Another question: why are AMCs launching NFOs at expensive valuations?

My thoughts on this subject:
If you had bought 5kg of sugar from a grocer & you order another 2kgs next day, will the grocer not sell you more? They are in the business of selling you day to day groceries.

What and how much you need is your choice as a customer. You cannot blame the grocer for selling
Put differently:
Which medicine(scheme) needed for which patient(Investor) is job of a Doctor(MFD) or patient(DIY Investor). It is not job of Pharma Companies(AMCs).

Just because Pharma Cos repackage the medicines, does not mean patients should increase their dose

Infrastructure Investment Trusts (InvITs)

InvITs are infrastructure developer-sponsored trusts that own, operate, and invest in completed/under-construction projects which entitle the unit holder to receive a share of the income generated by the InvIT from its assets.

(Thread) Image
1/What are these Infrastructure Assets?
These can be roads and highways, power distribution networks, telecom towers, fiber optic networks, etc.

𝑵𝒐𝒘, Let's say we have an infra company that specializes in constructing roads & highways on a Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) basis,
2/ means company will build roads, operate for a period of time (collect toll as income) & on completion of tenure, will transfer to govt.
If co. needs funds for construction, it will have to raise either by selling shares (equity), taking a loan (debt) or it can opt for an InvIT

Asset allocation refers to an investment strategy in which individuals divide their investment portfolios between different diverse asset classes to minimize investment risks.

There is no simple formula that can find the right asset allocation for every individual.

1/ An Portfolio Distribution is influenced by factors such as personal goals, level of risk tolerance and investment horizon.

As there are multiple options for investment, on the basis of risk, can be classified into 3 categories, "High Risk", "Medium Risk" & "Low Risk". Illustrative list of Assets
2/ "With great risk, comes great reward." - Thomas Jefferson.
But remember "For a low return on investment, the risks are also relatively low."

We all wish to be #FI
Investing sensibly is the only way to achieve this.

Hence #AssetAllocation becomes important , as we need to, BOTH PROTECT & GROW OUR CAPITAL to meet our goals in life.

A basic thread in simple language for beginners.

If useful , pls do share 😇🙏

Asset Allocation is an Investment Portfolio technique .

It aims to mitigate the risk by distributing our investable surplus across different asset classes like Equity, Debt, Gold, Real Estate, MF, Cash or Alternates after Risk Profiling of the investor.

An example 👇


Every Asset class has its risks & it's impossible to predict which would fetch the best possible returns.

Imagine if one had invested only in Equities in 2007/ 2019 or in Real Estate at its peak in 2011 with a hefty loan with no shock absorber in place ! 🤷

US tech stocks have been hit hard, as attention focuses on the underlying quality of themes like the migration to electric vehicles.
Yet this shakeup is also happening against the backdrop of a fast-changing investment environment due to a strengthening US growth outlook, rising inflationary pressure and an unnerved bond market which is driving yields higher.
In this video interview, Will Denyer seeks to unpack these dynamics in order to navigate a course through difficult trading conditions. #assetallocation #equities #us #stocks #bonds #economy
