Samco Mutual Fund’s Investment Philosophy
Samco Mutual Fund is India’s youngest asset management company. It is also the first AMC to introduce stress-tested investing.
Stress Testing is a strategy to put to work money with businesses that can endure and survive in a variety of stressful situations. This helps in generating superior long-term risk-adjusted returns.
It relies on understanding the resilience of companies based on Samco’s HexaShield framework which tests and evaluates every company and institution on the six most important facets of risks and stress.
These tests measure every company’s ability to maintain enough buffer to stay afloat under extreme scenarios. The HexaShield tests understands if these companies can generate high cash returns on capital employed in a variety of economic conditions including extremely adverse economic conditions.
They will launch funds and schemes only comprising of companies passing Samco’s proprietary HexaShield stress test framework.
Samco Mutual Fund will be the first AMC in India to transparently disclose Active Share daily and endeavours to launch truly active funds with a high active share.

Samco Flexi Cap Fund Investment Strategy
Samco Flexi Cap Fund will invest in 25 stress-tested companies from India and across the globe following the E3 strategy.
It will buy efficient companies at an efficient price and maintain an efficient portfolio turnover and cost to generate superior returns for investors over the long term.
Let us look at the E3 strategy in detail.
1.Invest in Efficient Companies
The scheme shall invest in efficient companies that have the ability to sustainably generate a high return on capital in cash adjusted for discretionary growth expenditures. Samco targets to invest in businesses earning more than 25% adjusted return on capital.
The scheme shall invest in 25 stocks across market caps from India and the world in a proportion of 65% and 35% respectively. These stocks shall be from a universe of 125 companies that have passed Samco’s HexaShield framework.
2. At an Efficient Price:
The scheme will only invest in securities at reasonable or efficient prices when the relative yield for stocks is reasonable compared to the other stocks in the universe.
3. Maintain an Efficient Portfolio Turnover and Cost:
The third pillar of the strategy is aimed at reducing hidden dealing costs and improving performance. Investors believe that the Total expense ratio is the only cost that is incurred by them as a part of their investments. But there is also a hidden cost that is not disclosed in any of these figures: the cost of dealing within the fund.
When a fund manager or an investor deals in stocks, he or she pays brokerage commissions, securities transaction tax at 0.1%, exchange transaction charges, stamp duty, SEBI fees and the difference between the broker’s bid and offer prices (the spread) often referred to as the impact cost.
The total cost of investments incurred by investors = the expense ratio (TER) of scheme + voluntary dealing cost
Samco Mutual fund is the first mutual fund in India that will transparently disclose all voluntary dealing costs. Voluntary dealing costs are all costs incurred by the fund manager for purchases and sales excluding the costs incurred for involuntary transactions such as fund inflows/outflows. This shall be computed as a percentage of the assets under management (AUM). This will help investors compute the total cost of investments which is a sum of the TER and voluntary dealing cost
