Scheme Strategy

  • According to the respective fund house, the scheme is not limited to market cap, sector or geography which gives a diversified approach. The operations of domestic, foreign investment and fixed income components are managed by three different managers.
  • Along with the dissection of financial statements, there will also be an overlay of the study of human emotions while investing.
  • The investment focuses on individual companies rather than the macro-economic situation.
  • The factors considered are quality of management & sector, performance & valuation of the companies. In foreign securities, it uses currency futures to hedge the currency exposure.

Fund Management

The domestic equity section is managed by Mr. Rajeev Thakkar since May 13, 2013 (CA, CFA and CFP having overall 18 years experience in fund management).

The overseas securities section is managed by Mr. Raunak Onkar since May 13, 2013 (MMS Finance).

Tarrakki’s View

Parag Parikh Long Term Equity Fund (PPLTEF) is one of only a handful of Indian mutual fund schemes to invest in a basket of Indian and foreign stocks. Sometimes, the Indian subsidiary of a multinational company may be very highly valued, and hence not investment-worthy. However, its parent company may be available at a much more reasonable valuation. PPFAS can now take advantage of such situations.

PPFAS employs the same time-tested principles of value investing while choosing both, Indian and foreign stocks. They reduce the risk of their investors losing due to sharp currency appreciation of the Indian rupee, by hedging approximately 80% of our foreign exposure through currency contracts.


PPFAS Asset Management Private Ltd. is the asset manager of PPFAS Mutual Fund, established back in 2012. As of the year ended 2019, the AMC had a total income of Rs. 2020.73 cr; Profit before tax: 491.87 crs. The company currently offers 3 schemes and has an asset under management of Rs. 1,961.5 Crore as on 31st March 2019.
