Aviva follows a conservative and consistent long-term investment approach for security selection. The focus is to invest in quality businesses with sound business models at relatively inexpensive valuations and identifies leaders and emerging leaders of sectors.
Our investment rationale -
We seek to invest in companies that, in our view, have sustainability of business growth and are trading at reasonable valuations.
Our belief that a stock''s price reflects the value of the underlying company makes us patient investors and not market timers.
We consider the company''s competitive advantage and its prospects along with a host of quantitative factors
We aim to capture long-term business cycles while investing in securities. We follow a disciplined research, which will help identify new trends early.
With this approach, we generate consistent investment returns over the long-term through the power of compounding.
Our evaluation of potential equity investments is based on:
Sustainability of business growth and its ability to generate free cash flows and higher Return on Equity (RoE)
Quality of Management in terms of its vision, cost and innovation competence, along with business ethics and integrity
Business Value and whether market price is at a discount to our estimate of the underlying business value. Besides, we also consider the number of price-value mismatches to ascertain if it is a reasonably safe investment, thus reducing the risk element
Fixed Income Strategy
We invest exclusively in top quality, sovereign bonds and corporate bonds with AAA rating. Global and domestic macro-economic variables of growth, inflation, currency variations and liquidity are considered to determine the long-term and short-term trends. The portfolio''s tenure is then adjusted according to our expectation of interest rate changes. We primarily focus on maintaining excellent credit quality, evaluating a company''s ability to pay interest before investing.
