Research is the backbone for outperformance in financial services products over
a period of time. SMIFS Limited is among the originator of research based
investment practices in India since the last three decades.
A testimony to this is the fact that it has and continues to nurture one of the
largest pool of leading global FII’s clients since the last two and half decades,
whose criteria had always been good research. Association of marquee names in the
investment world with SMIFS Limited decades back, was based on the strong
research foundation of the company.
We believe long term wealth creation is a result of dedicated research across various
underlying factors. We study the global and domestic socio-economic and political
factors, commodity trends, price trends to have a clear idea on the macro developments.
On a micro study, we read the annual reports, company’s offer documents, conference
calls, interact with management and do plant and site visits and above all, always
check the governance standards of the management. We have several quantitative and
qualitative checks on a company before we recommend them for investments.
