Investment Purpose Philosophy & Asset Allocation
- Purpose - Almost every Indians are using products (directly/indirectly) of global companies like Microsoft, Google, Apple, Facebook (WhatsApp), etc, helping them profit maximization but not able to take part of value creation journey in Indian Stock Market. Thus, the primary purpose to invest in foreign stocks from India is to take part of their value creation journey and profit maximization. Secondary purpose is diversification across geography to mitigate any geo-political risk/uncertainties in India.
- Investment Philosophy/ Stock Selection - The investment will be in high moat companies having competitive advantages and great long-term prospects. For example, a company like Google (Alphabet Inc) is far ahead than competition and in few areas (like Android, Map, YouTube, etc) enjoys almost virtual monopoly with continuous innovation helping customer lock-in and networking effect. Such companies remain a consistent wealth creator and also having multi-year bright future ahead. Unfortunately, such innovation-led high competitive advantage companies are not available in India. Thus, the philosophy in foreign stock investing will be to stick with innovation-led high-growth companies having multi-year bright prospects.*
- Allocation- Personally, I will keep maximum 20% of overall portfolio value in foreign stocks, it can be lower than 20% but maximum threshold will be 20% just to balance risk-reward. The detailed allocation structure is available in after-login segment, "Member's Zone". Also note the investment horizon will be for very long term, like 2-4 years or more. After selecting high moat company with multi-year bright prospects, I will keep adding at every major price support level. On the other hand, I prefer company/sector rotation and profit-booking while investing in Indian stocks. The portfolio churning rate will be a lot lower in global stocks.
