The month of June presented a blockbuster rally in the Indian stock market where major indices including the NIFTY 50 and the BSE Sensex climbed their all time high thrice this month. In June 2023, Sameeksha India Equity Fund (‘Sameeksha AIF’), a SEBI registered Category III Alternative Investment Fund gained 5.6% (net of all fees and expenses), and managed to carve an outperformance as compared to the benchmark BSE500TRI which gained 4.3%.
Fund Performance across various periods
Since inception, we have maintained relatively higher levels of cash (24.6% on average over the entire period from inception) from time to time over the duration of managing the fund. Notwithstanding the same, from inception and over one year, we have generated returns of 16.1% and 28.3% beating the benchmark BSE500 TRI returns of 7.7% and 24% respectively after fees before taxes. (Table 1).

Risk Adjusted Ratios
When compared on a risk-adjusted basis, our AIF shows an even stronger performance with a risk-adjusted alpha generation of 9.6% over the broader market benchmark since its inception. While our portfolio beta has been materially lower than our benchmark, our returns have been higher than the benchmark implying superior strong risk adjusted returns.
Furthermore, other risk-adjusted returns – Sharpe ratio and Treynor ratio, are also significantly higher than the benchmark indices (Table 2).

Analyzing the sector performance during the month
During the month, indices that showed growth this month include Finance, Automobile & Ancillaries, Healthcare, Infrastructure and, Bank. For Sameeksha PMS, the Diamond & Jewellery, Aviation, Healthcare and IT sectors were outperformers compared to the benchmark. However, what hurt us is the lack of exposure towards the Infrastructure sector where we missed out on participating in the upturn.
