Analyst Ratings: Five Pillar Framework

Our five pillar research framework reinforces a consistent, long term investment process and gives investors/ advisors/gatekeepers/consultants the resources they need to provide justified recommendations that are well suited to clientneeds.

We consider all of analysts, traders, and other managers who contribute to the process them when rating people. We think about what advantages they have over their peers along the lines of expertise, experience, and demonstrated skill. We will also look at how other funds at the family have done to assess firm wide expertise. We follow analyst movements at the firm so we know how experienced they are and whether there’s turmoil or stability in the ranks.

There’s an enormous variety of fund strategies even within a category, and we drill down to really understand the differences. Competitive advantages are a key way to look at it. Is the manager doing something that anyone can do or are they doing things that are hard to replicate? Is the strategy a proven one or a new, untested formula? Firms with resources and proven track record give us confidence in fund house.

When you invest for the long haul, you realize just how important the company behind the fund is. We look at manager turnover at the firm, the investment culture, and quality of research, ethics, directors, SEC sanctions, and more. If you hold a fund for 15 years, you want stable management that will be there the whole way through. And also whether they have been able to retain parent and get new talent as well.

When we talk about performance only one things comes to mind is only return, if return is good the fund is good and if return is bad the fund is bad, but that is not how we look at the fund we spend time trying to understand why a fund performed a certain way and link the performance back to its root cause: the strategy and holdings. We care about how a fund has performed in different market environments, its risk profile, and consistency of returns over time.

We look at a fund’s expenses relative to its peer group and its sales channel. We also take into context its asset size and in some cases its trading costs if they are particularly high or low. It’s also important to consider a fund’s costs in light of its strategy. In this we evaluate expense ratio, if all four pillar are same for two securities and expenses ratio of one security is high and expense ratio of other is low then we always go for security with low expenses ratio.

Three-pronged marketing strategy

Let’s look at the three strategies which have helped us acquire clients.

Tellecalling

Besides referrals, we also gets clients from Tellecalling. While this marketing tool sounds out-dated in the era of social media and technology, “ We at ocean finvest have a well-qualified team having MBA qualifications who do this job. They don’t talk about products and are not pushy. Rather, they talk about the services offered by our company and how we can help them reach their financial goals,” . Apart from salary, we offers incentives and profit-sharing to our team if the branch breaks even.

Branch offices

We have been expanding practice by adding branch offices. We identify the city which offers the maximum business opportunity. One of the key parameters we look at while identifying cities is the bank deposit saving rate. Higher the saving rate, bigger the opportunity to transition people towards mutual funds. To make further inroads into HNI segment, expanding the physical reach is our focus area. “Retail book can be expanded through technology but HNI need the touch and feel. So having branch office is essential to tap into this market, the break-even time for a branch depends on the city and the cost.

Currently Ocean Finvest are having its Branches at Ahmedabad, Bhavnagar, Himatnagar, Mumbai, Rajkot, Surendranagar, Surat , Bhopal , Pune .

Digital Marketing

We are using social media platforms like Quora, Blogs LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and search engine optimization actively to increase firm’s visibility. We have dedicated team which continuously generates new ideas to drive this activity.

Our business has grown by leaps and bounds by deploying these three strategies. Today, we have a team of extremely talented professionals across nine locations - Bhavnagar, Jamnagar, Ahmedabad, Baroda, Surat, Valsad and Mumbai, Bhopal, Pune. We get a lot of leads from social media marketing.
