The Company aims to provide long-term capital appreciation by investing (directly and indirectly) in companies based in India. The investment policy permits the Group to make investments in a range of Indian equity and equity linked securities and predominantly in listed mid and small cap Indian companies with a smaller proportion in unlisted Indian companies. Investment may also be made in large-cap listed Indian companies and in companies incorporated outside India which have significant operations or markets in India. While the principal focus is on investment in listed or unlisted equity securities or equity linked securities, the Group has the flexibility to invest in bonds (including noninvestment grade bonds), convertibles and other types of securities. The Group may, for the purposes of hedging and investing, use derivative instruments such as financial futures, options and warrants.
