India Market Update 2023: LionGlobal India Fund

21 Jun, 2023

THREE KEY REASONS WHY INDIA NOW PRESENTS ITSELF AS AN EXCITING INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITY

First, India is undergoing a manufacturing renaissance, poised to become a potential factory of the world. Several reasons have attributed to this, such as US-China trade wars prior to Covid, China’s extended lockdowns during Covid as well as China’s current demographic trends. We see infrastructure and banks as direct beneficiaries of the capital expenditure boom.

Second, the Modi government has undertaken a series of positive reforms over the years to boost the economy. These include cutting down red tape for goods and transactions to take place across states by setting up a uniform GST policy, removing roadblocks via tweaks in regulations and facilitating an infrastructure that spans across rail, road and power assets. With further implementation of tax benefits to attract foreign direct investments into India, the infrastructure side of the economy will certainly be booming.

Third, the ongoing rise of a middle class with a growing purchasing power will fuel higher discretionary spending and result in further credit penetration. Indeed, the use of technology has enabled banks to extend their reach, while allowing smaller businesses and individual consumers to gain access to more sources of credit. We see this as just the beginning of a multi-year tailwind for India.

 

LIONGLOBAL INDIA FUND

The LionGlobal India Fund aims for medium to long-term capital appreciation by investing in India equities and equity-related instruments. While India has done well across sectors, performance has been very differentiated. We believe this is increasingly a stock picker’s market. We are overweight (OW) in Consumer Discretionary, Autos and Industrials. We are underweight (UW) in IT Services, Staples and Utilities.
