Underlying Asset Managers
Jaipur AM believes that the best approach to investing in a fast growing economy such as India is to utilise a ‘Growth’ or ‘Growth at a Reasonable Price’ (GARP) philosophy. Simply, managers using this philosophy seek companies that are growing quickly in order to benefit from price appreciation as earnings grow. While each investment manager selected for the Fund uses this broad approach, there are important differences in their processes that will lead to different performance outcomes.
