The steppingstone of the process is to define the universe of all equity diversified funds (excluding sectorial and thematic) through a filter based of the vintage of the fund i.e. minimum history of 3 years and Assets under Management (AuM) i.e. minimum 200 Crore. For debt funds the vintage filter is of minimum 1 year and Assets under Management (AuM) of minimum 500 Crore.
Analysis based in key indicators like Sharpe Ratio, Sortino Ratio, Beta, Standard Deviation and Drawdown help determine the behaviour and performance of the funds over different rolling period. These indicators of risk, volatility and performance plays pivotal role in further narrowing the universe of funds
Qualitative analysis focuses on subjective aspect of funds that are not always quantifiable in numbers and data. Analysis is based on portfolio characteristics and quality, performance of the funds across different market cycles, consistency on investment philosophy of the funds and philosophy of the fund houses. Along with these for debt funds a thorough analysis of portfolio characteristics like Credit Quality, Net YTM, Modified Duration, Avg. Maturity, Company & Sector Level Exposure is done to classify the funds based on quality of their portfolio.
