Karma Capital's Jasmine AIF (Cat III, Open Ended) will concentrate on building a portfolio of companies early in their growth cycles.

MUMBAI, India, May 14, 2024 -- Karma Capital, an Indian equities investment management firm with a track record of over 17 years, announced the launch of the Karma Capital Jasmine Alternative Investment Fund (AIF) — its first open-ended AIF. With this move, Karma Capital extends its commitment to offer its differentiated equity portfolios to domestic ultra-high net worth investors and their wealth managers or investment advisors.

This is a Category-III AIF that will comprise of 20–25 stocks selected across market capitalizations and is benchmarked to the BSE 500 Total Returns Index. The minimum investment is INR 1 Crore.

Rushabh Sheth, Co-Founder and Co-CIO, Karma Capital, emphasized, "Karma Capital Jasmine AIF will create a concentrated portfolio of businesses that are financially strong, are growing at a faster rate and the underlying business cycle is turning for the positive — but are trading at reasonable valuations due to current news or narratives around the business being negative. Investing in such businesses, early in the cycle in a disciplined manner, helps investors benefit from the expected earnings' growth and a substantial re-rating in valuations."

Rajnish Girdhar, Chief Executive Officer, Karma Capital, said, "A large proportion of the investments by domestic ultra-high net worth investors are anyways allocated to Indian equities, and with the launch of the Karma Capital Jasmine AIF we will be able to offer them easy access to a portfolio of complementary businesses that can be added to their overall long-term equity portfolios."
