Five things to keep in mind

while investing in 2015
Its been an encouraging year with equity markets topping and
making new all-time highs. With various leading indices delivering
between 30-70 percent returns, 2014 has created wealth for retail
investors (Source: BSE India). The year 2015 is conducive for
investing as the markets could consolidate and investors, big and
small, may find opportunities to make long-term investments.
Switch from physical assets to financial assets
Indian household savings have been over-invested in physical
assets like gold and real estate which failed to deliver returns for
investors over last two years. In 2015 we recommend investors to
incline their portfolios towards financial assets like equity and
fixed income, as they have the potential to create wealth for
investors over the longer term.
Current Indian economy expected to grow. Invest with a three
year view
The new Governments reforms have set the stage for moving
Indian economy from vicious to virtuous economic cycle & may
boost corporate earnings. Initiatives like Make in India, Digital and
Skill India could place India in high growth trajectory.
Further, Indias macro fundamentals like Current Account Deficit,
inflation, lower crude prices and growth impulses are improving.
The good news is that Indian economy is poised to clock a high
growth rate in 2016 & 2017, after consolidating for much of 2015.
With Niftys current one-year forward Price Earning of 14.9x,
market is also fairly valued. The beauty of market in 2015 is that it
could be a great year to make investments in first six-nine months
in a staggered manner to create wealth over next three-five years.


Invest in Domestic cyclicals to play Indias growth story

In equities, the attractive themes can be Banks because the
leverage cycle is expected and Utilities because we are positive
on interest rates coming down. There is also scope for capacity
utilization to pace up in many of the industrial and manufacturing
sectors. As the capacity utilization picks up, equities could deliver
reasonable returns
Fixed income looks attractive
Over the course of next year, debt is expected to do well. The
Reserve Bank of India has kept interest rate cuts on hold till now
but is expected to cut interest rates in 2015, which bodes very well
for debt next year. In fact, India can be among the few countries
that will see a drop in interest rates. Therefore, over next 15
months or so, it is attractive for investors to invest in long term
debt funds in 2015.
Take the benefit of volatility
The outlook for equity markets is good over 2016 to 2018, but
there could be brief periods of volatility in 2015 taking cues from
global factors. With the current price of crude and good growth
prospects, India is one of the attractive emerging markets in the
world and therefore, there lies an opportunity to invest in Indian
equities for the long term. To beat volatility, investors should
adhere to asset allocation which spreads the risks across asset
classes. Alternatively, investors could also invest in products that
offer the asset allocation strategy and benefit out of volatility.

IPRU Insights | December 2014

Getting on the right

side of 2015
We encourage investors to enter
the equity markets over the next 69 months with an aim to create
wealth over the next 3-5 years.

Mr. S. Naren, CIO, ICICI Prudential AMC

A gradual revival in domestic economy

signals better days for debt in the medium
term and equities in the long run.
For the long-term India remains one of the
attractive emerging markets in the world.
Therefore, we are convinced that financial
assets are where investors could be in
2015, rather than physical assets such as
gold and real estate. As we head into 2015,
the Indian market may take cues from the
volatile global environment and offer
investment opportunities. Investors, large
and small, should avoid worrying about
these short-term corrections.

the government. If the government

reduces the revenue deficit and raises the
fiscal deficit slightly to help boost spending
on infrastructure, it could give a boost to
some of the infrastructure products. Once
theres a little increase in the capex cycle,
sooner or later the private sector will step
in and this may turn into a virtuous cycle.
India positioned to withstand Global
India is well placed to withstand this
volatility. The Reserve Bank of India has
been one step ahead, factoring in the fact
that interest rates in the US could be raised
and affect fund flows. Otherwise, interest
rates may have been lower today. We are
also seeing lower commodity prices,
especially that of crude oil. India is a huge
importer of crude oil and savings in foreign
exchange are quite substantial on this
front. Even Prices of base metals are down.
We believe that this could go a long way in
reviving the Indian economy.

Yes, there are a few concerns, especially in

terms of domestic growth rates. Industrial
production figures have come negative.
But thats a mere short-term phenomenon.
What the domestic economy perhaps
needs in 2015 is a little encouragement,
especially in capex. The Indian economy
has not had the kind of investment in
infrastructure that can lead to a decent
boost. Fortunately for India, a host of
commodity prices are lower and that will
benefit the country. On the other hand,
there arent many companies that are likely
to heavily invest in capacity expansions in
the short term as many are sitting on underutilized capacities.

The West has been signaling for some time

now that there may be a rate increase on
the cards. This could mean a phase of
volatility in 2015. Higher interest rates in
the US indeed could strengthen the dollar
further and affect global fund flows.

Therefore, perhaps the onus of raising

expenditure on domestic capex lies with

Nearly $10 billion has poured into the

Indian equities market since April 2014. We

IPRU Insights | December 2014

have also seen how news flows affect

sentiment. So, there are fears that, even on
small announcements, some of these
funds could be withdrawn, especially by
foreign investors looking at short-term
trades. These are legitimate concerns.
Market to offer opportunities
So heres a brief of how small investors can
take to the New Years batting crease. We
encourage investors to enter the equity
markets over the next 6-9 months with an
aim to create wealth over the next 3-5
years. The equity markets are poised for
the long run. If you can get into good equity
funds on correction, that would be a great
start to 2015. Investors could go in for debt
mutual funds over the next one year; as, the
coming year ought to be good for debt
funds, especially funds of a longer duration.
A fixed-income boom may happen before
economic growth strengthens and, for
leveraging to begin, the interest-rate cycle
has to turn. So, you may invest in debt
funds in the immediate future for the next
12- to 15-months, and buy into equity funds
on dips for the longer horizon.



Financial Resolutions 2015

How to make and keep your financial
resolutions for the New Year
Its that time of the year when everybody is
making year-end resolutions. For some the
priorities are losing weight, for others its
getting around to learning a new language
or skill. But for all, the one important
resolution should be to get a firmer handle
on your finances.
Investing is easier said than done, you say.
And like any New Year, when this one
comes to an end as well, we find that we
havent added any might or growth to our
financial savings kitty. That we are back to
square one making resolutions for the
New Year again. That again we begin the
next year without putting our best financial
foot forward, and the cycle continues
year after year.
Its time to change that in 2015.
Set your savings on autopilot, first
It is easy to make and keep your financial
resolutions. All one has to do is put your
savings plan on autopilot. These days its
so very easy due to technology.
The electronic clearing system that most
banks have been offering has been there
for some time now, and most of us who
have not got around making use of it
should walk over to the bank right now, and
start a new mandate.
Wherever you decide to save, the best way
to start is set up a standing order with your
bank, which puts the money straight into
your investment. Sure, you may have a little
less in your pocket and to splurge, but your
money will be directed towards and to
secure your financial future.
This way you are actually saving and investing
each month. Systematic investment plans of
mutual funds are tailored such that you make
a payment to the fund of your choice on a
particular date each month.


Make accountability an important factor

Another great tool that psychologists
advice to keep your savings goal on track is
to make accountability an important factor
when creating a savings goal. Either you
could get accountable to someone. Or you
could create a financial incentive or
disincentive around your targets that help
you keep your goals.
For a investment plan, create a structure
where every time you miss an investment,
you are going to lose a promise to your
friend or spouse. Make the promise huge,
twice or thrice your investment amount, so
that you cringe when you have to lose it.
Behavioral experts call it lose aversion that
drives behavior which drives you to avoid a
loss, at any cost. The very fact that you may
lose something drives you to take a
decision, which your savings plan is a
positive one. So use this technique this
New Year, and keep your savings on track.
Set bill payment alerts
One of the big causes of losing money is
late payments in credit cards, electricity
bills, and so on. Look closer, the monthly
interest payments amount to about 3
percent a month on credit cards. If you miss
your payment, it not only increases the
interest burden on you, the late fees, and
other charges add up to a significant sum.
If this adds up, it can get difficult to pay
your credit cards so much so that

sometimes people tend to roll-over their

outstanding by paying the minimum due.
Compounding works against you if you
underpay your credit cards.
So, the best thing is to set your bill payment
alerts. Make good use of the technology
that automatically prompt you to pay on
time. It will be a lot less costly than missing
a payment, and can save you thousands in
missed payments.
Keep a financial diary
Keep a master list and summary of each of
your investment separately, and how they
have done over a three-month period. Visit
this only once in three months to know
major progress.
But a more important thing to do this New
Year is to keep a tear down and account of
your financial journey not only for fun but
also to know the progress you have made.
Keep a financial diary. Not only note each
investment that you made every day, but
also each major expense.
Largely, use this diary to note and describe
your experience with investing, and your
learnings, your understanding or lack of
understanding of any investment and the
outcome of any financial decision. This will
help you gain insights on your
investments. You will also know why
certain investments are doing better than
others. A financial diary is your experience
of handling your own money. Note every
small detail of it. You could maintain the
diary on a daily, monthly or weekly basis.
Make your diary interesting by writing
nuggets of wisdom from the masters and
compare it with your own. However, you do
it, just keep doing it for a few months this
year at the beginning regularly, and it will
morph into a lovely habit for a lifetime.

Tax Planning in 2015

Lower your taxes through smart tax planning

axation is a necessity, one has to pay depending on their taxable income. But one can reduce the tax outflow. Section 80C of the
Income Tax Act, 1961 offers a wide range of investment avenues which can help in not just easing the tax burden but also in optimising
returns on investments. Further, the latest Union Budget announced an increase in the tax exemption limit from `1 lakh to `1.5 lakh under this
Section. Let us take a look at what is included in Section 80C:
Some of the Tax saving options under Section 80C of Income Tax Act, 1961

Equity Linked Saving Schemes (ELSS) offered by

mutual funds

United Linked Insurance Plans (ULIPs) offered by

insurance companies

Traditional - Public Provident Fund (PPF), National

Saving Certificate (NSC), five-year bank fixed
deposits (FDs), Senior Citizen Savings Scheme
(SCSS) Account

Premium paid towards traditional life insurance

plans, pension plans such as National Pension
Scheme (NPS), Employee Provident Fund (EPF)

ELSS are tax saving schemes offered by

mutual funds which predominantly invest
in a diversified portfolio of stocks. One
needs to hold the units for a minimum
period of three years to claim the tax

rebate. These schemes have the low lockin period.

ELSS also allows small amount
investments, as low as `500, at regular

intervals through Systematic Investment

Plans (SIP), thereby helping investors
benefit from disciplined long-term

Case study
Table 1: SIP in ELSS vs lump sum investment

starting April FY 04-05

Eligibility of funds are based on

minimum NAV history and a

minimum AUM
As on September 2014, the index

comprises of 22 schemes.
Table 1 compares the returns from SIP
(calculated by XIRR method) with that of
lump sum investment and it clearly
highlights the benefits of year-long
investments in mutual funds. As per the


study, a monthly SIP of `1,000 in ELSS over

a period of 10 years would have grown to
`2.45 lakh at an annualised growth rate of
14%. Compared with that, lump sum
investments of `12,000 annually would
have grown to `2.21 lakh (difference of
around `24,000) at an annualised growth
rate of 12%.

Traditional investment avenues

However, investors should note that

investment in ELSS is subject to market
risks and must take into consideration age
and the risk-taking ability. The investment
horizon should be more than five years for
higher risk-adjusted returns.

ICICI Prudential
Target Returns Fund
(There is no guarantee or assurance of returns.)

he fund primarily invests in select ongoing themes in the market and

focuses on 15-20 undervalued large-cap
stocks. But it allows the added advantage of
switching to other funds as and when your
targets are hit, thus allowing you an asset
allocation rebalancing tool that keeps
emotions out in decision making.
Stock markets have been buoyant for some
time now. A combination of good
fundamentals and low-valuations has been
instrumental in the stock markets delivering
good returns in the past year. However, the
market is now in fairly valued territory. There
are relatively fewer pockets of
undervaluation than there were a year ago.
ICICI Prudential Target Returns Fund is a
scheme that looks for themes that can
outperform in and benefits out of the
different market and economic cycles. It
seeks to invest in high-quality undervalued
stocks within the themes it identifies using
a top-down approach. The idea is to
identify two key prevalent themes. In its
primary theme, the fund will invest around
60-75 percent of its corpus and take

concentrated bets on these themes. In its

secondary theme, which again is identified
by the potential of various sectors, the fund
invests about 40-25 percent or the rest of
its corpus.
After identifying the various themes that
are likely to do well, the fund takes the
bottom-up approach to stock selection and
invests only in about 15-20 large-cap
companies in any particularly theme. This
way the fund takes a concentrated
approach based on the future potential of
the theme.
A salient feature of this scheme is that it
allows an investor to set targets on the kind
of returns he/ she is looking for and switch
out the gains into other ICICI Prudential
Mutual Fund schemes. The Scheme offers
investors to choose from a range of
potential returns that they are targeting
based on four exit triggers which are: 12%,
20%, 50% and 100%. As the target is met,
either the gains only or the full investment
amount, depending on choice of investor,
would be automatically switched to one of
the pre-selected schemes of ICICI

Prudential Mutual Fund. (As permitted

under the Scheme Information Document).
For now, the fund has been looking at two
themes in the market, one, domestic
cyclicals and the other exports. The fund is
looking at companies that are likely to
benefit from the economic cycle and
currently is looking at segments such as
banks, capital goods and auto. Exports is
the secondary theme that the fund is
currently looking at as this segment has
underperformed the market recently and
will benefit from the demand uptick
coming from developed economies.
However, this scheme is for investors
looking at taking concentrated bets but
would like to rebalance occasionally into
other funds. It keeps the emotions out of
the decision making to book profits, and it
will invest the proceeds in pre-selected
debt oriented funds within the ICICI
Prudential AMC.
