  • 3. From the Desk of the CIO… Dear Investors, The Cypriot hiccup caused a lot of anxiety to investors around the world health of their banks. The issue of a bailout and a subsequent bank-run in through March. While the scale of the problem in Cyprus is quite small anticipation of losses to depositors then is not quite pressing. However, if vis-à-vis the Euro-zone economy, the spirit of the deal made investors some concerns were to emerge in the short term in one of the larger wonder if something similar might happen in the bigger economies in the Euro-zone countries, the current climate is quite explosive and conducive troubled periphery. The depositors taking a hit of the bank failure was for a messy round of bank failures. ECB has taken note of that and has indeed a first. Part of the reason ECB proposed the deal in its original form postured adequately to ward off such self-fulfilling prophecies. was political. With the well-known Russian links Cyprus in not quite a Domestically, RBI obliged the investors and borrowers alike by reducing poster-boy for good governance. The idea of bailing out Cypriot banks for the repo rate by 25 bps. However, what it gave in rate cut, it took away in most Euro area common people (especially German) simply translates the hawkish tone of the policy. In a country full of edgy investors, this into spending their honest money to make good the losses of the Russian hawkishness was enough to make them push up bond yields. We continue black-money hoarders. The bailout then understandably required a to believe that with decelerating inflation RBI will have sufficient room for suitable indicator of the sternness of the saviors. As things evolved, the further rate cuts this year. deal was later ‘sweetened’ to avoid losses for the small depositors. The most important domestic development was DMK walking out of the However, the damage to the perception of Euro-zone fire-fighting efforts government thus making the latter fully dependent on outside support for was already done by then. survival. The political uncertainty went up sharply with this development. It is not hard to understand the corollary some experts are drawing from There is relative calm for now on this front. However, the guessing games this. If Cypriot bank bailout requires the depositors to take part of the hit, have begun regarding election timing, prime ministerial candidates, third a similar principle might apply in future to a bailout in say Portugal or front and so on. The environment of uncertainty has made many wonder Italy. If the Portuguese or Italian savers also think similarly now, they if the government will have the flexibility or even the willingness to push would be inclined to take money out of the banks in their respective the much-needed reforms. The actual reforms might not amount to countries and move it to north Europe before trouble begins. That would much. The pessimism amongst corporate captains owing to this however then make the financial health of the southern banks worse – thus is real and the effect of that on the continued lack of investments is quite precipitating the very crisis they feared. We believe this fear is overblown. corrosive for growth.

  • 8. Equity OutlookThe month of March saw political uncertainty with DMK withdrawing support from the UPA government. The government survives withoutside support from UP based regional parties SP and BSP. While the government remains stable for now, it is difficult to predict the politicalevents in the next few months. Equity markets have turned volatile with concerns about the recently unveiled reform measures. However,the government has continued with the monthly hike in diesel prices. If price hikes continue for auto fuels, it will lead to easing of pressure onfiscal deficit front.RBI has taken cognizance of these fiscal consolidation measures and continued with monetary easing with 25bps cut in repo rates in themarch review. RBI has maintained its focus on reviving growth while highlighting that ‘even as the policy stance emphasizes addressing thegrowth risks, the headroom for further monetary easing remains quite limited.’ While headline wholesale price inflation and its corecomponent, non-food manufactured products inflation have softened, the consumer price inflation continues to be at elevated levels. RBIbelieves that the onus of reviving the investment cycle lies with the government stating that the ’government has a critical role to play in thisregard by remaining committed to fiscal consolidation, easing the supply bottlenecks and improving governance surrounding projectimplementation.’The key risk factor for Indian markets in FY14 remains the political stability and the government’s ability to push through fiscal consolidation.It is important that some of the key reform measures like Goods and Services Tax (GST) and diesel & kerosene price deregulation are pushedthrough by the government. RBI might also find it difficult to carry out the necessary rate cuts if inflationary pressures don’t abate.We witnessed one of the best quarters for FII inflows in Q1 of 2013 with total inflows crossing 10 billion dollars. While Indian marketscorrected, developed markets rallied sharply on hopes of economic revival this year. With US economy bouncing back and improvement inunemployment number, Global situation remains benign and conducive to equity markets in 2013. Indian equity markets have significantlyunderperformed global equity this quarter. Several high quality stocks have corrected sharply. With macros on the mend, we believe that thecorrect correction is overdone and should be used to build a long term equity portfolio. 8
  • 9. Sector View Sector Stance Remarks The reversal of the interest rate cycle will assist in managing asset quality better and would lead to BFSI Overweight increase in credit growth. However, we like the private sector more than public sector due to better management quality and higher balance sheet discipline We like the secular consumption theme. We prefer “discretionary consumption” beneficiaries such FMCG Overweight as Cigarettes, IT hardware, durables and branded garments, as the growth in this segment will be disproportionately higher vis-à-vis the increase in disposable incomes. Demand seems to be coming back in Europe. US volume growth has also remained resilient. With IT/ITES Overweight pricing already bottomed out, we have turned positive on the space. We believe in the large sized opportunity presented by Pharma sector in India. India’s strength in generics is difficult to replicate due to quality and quantity of available skilled manpower. With theHealthcare Overweight developed world keen to cut healthcare costs, and a vast pipeline of drugs going off-patent, Indian pharma players are at the cusp of rapid growth. The significant slowdown in order inflow activity combined with high interest rates has hurt the E&C Neutral sector. Now since the interest rate cycle has started to reverse, we have turned more constructive on this space. 9
  • 10. Sector View Sector Stance Remarks The regulatory hurdles and competitive pressures seem to be reducing. Incumbents have started Telecom Neutral to increase tariffs slowly and we believe that consolidation will happen sooner than expected. Raw material prices have started coming down which would boost margins. Auto loans are alsoAutomobiles Neutral getting cheaper. We are more bullish on SUV’s and agricultural vehicles segment due to lesser competition and higher pricing power. With the ongoing price deregulation of diesel, we believe the total subsidy burden on Oil PSU’s Energy Neutral will come down during the course of the year. We are turning more constructive on the space now. We like the regulated return charteristic of this space. This space provides steady growth inPower Utilities Neutral earnings and decent return on capital. Commodity prices have corrected significantly over the last few months due to concerns about Metals Underweight growth in China and developed parts of the world. Cement industry is facing over capacity issues and lackluster demand. With regulator taking a Cement Underweight strong view against pricing discipline, the profits of the sector are expected to stay muted. 10

But on 28th March, the G-Sec market closed better on value buying and on measures, such as additional and special LAF, by RBI to tackle current liquidity tightness.

  • 12. Debt Strategy Category Outlook Details With the third policy rate cut that happened in Feb 2013, with a 25 Bps cut in Repo rate and no CRR along with lesser probability of future cuts in the policy rates in the coming quarter, but as there is influence of global factors in theShort Tenure market, a lot of uncertainty is coupled with it, hence, we would recommend Debt to invest in and hold on to current investments in short term debt Due to liquidity pressures increasing in the market as RBI has a huge borrowing plan, short term yields would remain higher. Short Term funds still have high YTMs (9%–9.5%) providing interesting investment opportunities. Some AA and select A rated securities are very attractive at the current yields. A similar trend can be seen in the Fixed Deposits also. Tight liquidity Credit in the system has also contributed to widening of the spreads making entry at current levels attractive. Indian long term debt is likely to see capital appreciation owing to the expected monetary easing. With the third policy rate cut happening in March 2013, with a 25 Bps cut in Repo and no CRR along with lesser probability of future cuts in the policy rates in the coming quarter, but along with this is a lot of uncertaintyLong Tenure in the market and hence would recommend to hold on to the current Debt investments in the Longer term papers. These papers are suitable for both - investors who may want to stay invested for the medium term (exiting when prices appreciate) and those who would want to lock in high yields for the longer term. 12
