Using the most suitable valuation technique, undervalued companies are identified. Then the companies are selected after generating bull case and bear case scenarios for the intrinsic value of the companies and high upside to downside ratio. Finally, the portfolio is constructed by allocating weights keeping in mind the size of the opportunity and risk.

Concluding Remarks

Canara Robeco Value Fund is an open-ended mutual fund that follows a value investment strategy. This strategy aims to identify stocks with strong fundamentals trading at a discount to their intrinsic value. By investing in undervalued stocks, the fund seeks to minimize the downside risk and provide a margin of safety. However, the companies take time to go back to their fair value. Hence the fund completely relies on the time lag strategy to make profits for its investors.

Investors who understand that long-term investing is the key to making returns from this can invest in this scheme. However, the fund doesn’t assure or guarantee any returns. Hence investors have to practice caution and continuously monitor their investments to see if the fund is assisting them in achieving their goals.
