Securities investments are subject to market and other risks and the Portfolio Manager provides no guarantee or assurance that the objectives set out in the Disclosure Document and/or the PMS Agreement shall be accomplished.
Past performances of the Portfolio Manager do not guarantee its future performance.
The value of the Portfolio may increase or decrease depending upon various market forces and factors affecting the capital markets. Consequently, the Portfolio Manager provides no assurance of any guaranteed returns on the Portfolio. Investments in the Investment Approaches stand a risk of loss of capital and the Clients should be aware that they may lose all or any part of their investments.
The Portfolio Manager has reasonable experience or track record. However Investment decisions made by the Portfolio Manager may not always be profitable. While the Portfolio Manager shall take all reasonable steps to invest the Funds in a prudent manner, such decisions may not always prove to be profitable or correct. Consequently, the Client shall assume any loss arising from such decisions made by the Portfolio Manager.
Investments made by the Portfolio Manager are subject to risks arising from the investment approach, investment objective and asset allocation.
Equity and Equity Related Risks:
Equity instruments carry both company specific and market risks and hence no assurance of returns can be made for these investments. While the Portfolio Manager shall take all reasonable steps to invest the Funds in a prudent manner in such instruments, such decisions may not always prove to be profitable or correct. Consequently, the Client shall assume any loss arising from such decisions made by the Portfolio Manager.
Exchange Traded Funds related Risks:
Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) are subject to market volatility and the risks of their underlying securities. These securities underlying the ETFs target a small universe of securities, such as a specific region or market sector, are generally subject to greater market volatility, as well as to the specific risks associated with that sector, region, or other focus. ETFs that use derivatives, leverage, or complex investment strategies are subject to additional risks. The return of an index ETF is usually different from that of the index it tracks because of fees, expenses, and tracking error. An ETF may trade at a premium or discount to its net asset value (NAV). The degree of liquidity can vary significantly from one ETF to another and losses may be magnified if no liquid market exists for the ETF's shares when attempting to sell them. Each ETF has a unique risk profile, detailed in its prospectus, offering circular, or similar material, which should be considered carefully when making investment decisions.
Overall economic slowdown, unanticipated corporate performance, environmental or political problems, changes to monitory or fiscal policies, changes in government policies and regulations with regard to industry and exports may have direct or indirect impact on the investments, and consequently the growth of the Portfolio.
Liquidity of investments in equity and equity related securities are often restricted by factors such as trading volumes, settlement periods and transfer procedures. If a particular security does not have a market at the time of sale, then the Portfolio may have to bear an impact depending on its exposure to that particular security. While Securities that are listed on a stock exchange generally carry a lower liquidity risk, the ability to sell these investments is limited by overall trading volume on the stock exchange. Money market securities, while fairly liquid, lack a well developed secondary market, which may restrict the selling ability of such securities thereby resulting in a loss to the Portfolio until such securities are finally sold.
This risk is higher under the Services if the Portfolio Manager proposes to invest a large portion of the Portfolio in unlisted securities. Even upon termination of the Agreement, the Client may receive illiquid securities and finding a buyer for such Securities may be difficult. Further, different segments of the Indian financial markets have different settlement periods and such periods may be extended significantly by unforeseen circumstances. Delays or other problems in settlement of transactions could result in temporary periods when the assets of the portfolio are un-invested and no return is earned thereon. The inability of the Portfolio Manager to make intended Securities purchases, due to settlement problems, could cause the Portfolio to miss certain investment opportunities.
Acts of State, or sovereign action, acts of nature, acts of war, civil disturbance, lock-downs, policy changes of Local/International markets which affects stock markets are extraneous factors which can impact the Portfolio.
The Client stands the risk of total loss of value of an asset which forms part of the Portfolio or its recovery only through an expensive legal process due to various factors which by way of illustration include default or non-performance of a third party, investee company’s refusal to register a Security due to legal stay or otherwise, disputes raised by third parties.
This risk arises when the Portfolio is not sufficiently diversified by investing in a wide variety of instruments. As mentioned above, the Portfolio Manager will attempt to maintain a diversified Portfolio in order to minimize this risk.
Mutual Fund Risk:
This risk arises from investing in units of Mutual funds. Risk factors inherent to equities and debt securities are also applicable to investments in mutual fund units. Further, scheme specific risk factors of each such underlying scheme, including performance of their underlying stocks, derivatives instruments, stock lending, off-shore investments etc., will be applicable in the case of investments in mutual fund units. In addition, events like change in fund manager of the scheme, take over, mergers and other changes in status and constitution of mutual funds, foreclosure of schemes or plans, change in government policies could affect performance of the investment in mutual fund units. In case of investments in mutual fund units, the Client shall bear the recurring expenses of the Portfolio Management Services in addition to the expenses of the underlying mutual fund schemes. Hence, the Client may receive lower pre-tax returns compared to what he may receive had he invested directly in the underlying mutual fund schemes in the same proportions.

The inability of the Portfolio Manager to make intended securities purchases due to settlement problems could cause the Investment Approaches to miss certain investment opportunities as in certain cases, settlement periods may be extended significantly by unforeseen circumstances. Similarly, the inability to sell securities held in the portfolio may result, at times, in potential losses to the Investment Approaches, should there be a subsequent decline in the value of the securities held in the portfolio of Investment Approaches.
The Portfolio Manager may, subject to authorization by the Client in writing, participate in securities lending.
