More than 265 portfolio schemes for high-net-worth investors (HNIs) failed to deliver a positive return in June when the benchmark equity index BSE Sensex lost 4.58 per cent due to the ongoing selling pressure by foreign institutional investors (FIIs) and uncertainty over inflation.  The BSE Midcap and BSE Smallcap declined 6.18 per cent and 6 per cent, respectively, during the same period.

Data collated by PMS Bazaar showed that Basant Maheshwari Wealth Advisers Equity Fund, managed by well-known investor Basant Maheshwari, declined the most 13.63 per cent last month. The scheme has lost 20.97 per cent in the past 3 months and 16.31 per cent in 1 year. However, the strategy has delivered a 15.07 per cent CAGR return since its inception in February 2016.

In his letter to investors in June, Maheshwari advised investors that this is the time to pour money into the market if they have a long-term view. “We are getting these stocks because the immediate future ‘looks’ uncertain even though it might not be as uncertain as it looks. But this uncertainty will go away with time and prices will discount clarity and certainty. This is the best time to capture that transition by topping up your accounts,” he said. Maheshwari also thinks that many fast-growing companies are now available for better prices than what they were earlier.
