Our investment philosophy – ‘Buy Right : Sit Tight’

At Molal Oswal Asset Management Company (MOAMC), our investment philosophy and invesng style is centered on 'Buy Right: Sit Tight‘ principle.

Buy Right Stock Characteristics
  • ‘Q’uality denotes quality of the business and management
  • ‘G’rowth denotes growth in earnings and sustained RoE
  • ‘L’ongevity denotes longevity of the competitive advantage or economic moat of the business
  • ‘P’rice denotes our approach of buying a good business for a fair price rather than buying a fair business for a good price
Sit Tight Approach
  • Buy and Hold: We are strictly buy and hold investors and believe that picking the right business needs skill and holding onto these businesses to enable our investors to benefit from the entire growth cycle needs even more skill
  • Focus: Our portfolios are high conviction portfolios with 20 to 25 stocks being our ideal number. We believe in adequate diversification but overdiversification results in diluting returns for our investors and adding market risk
