The Fund will invest in the following key themes:
1. Policy Reforms
With the implementation of GST, India has become a unified market which will reduce the cost of doing business, improved compliance, and increase efficiency and productivity. The demonetization and GST has accelerated the shift from unorganized to organized sector. Thus, companies which are operating in sectors where unorganized players have significant market share are like to benefit the most. Besides, the RERA has also brought the transparency in real estate sector which will boost the consumer sentiments. The bankruptcy code will help in resolving the NPA issues of banks. At last, digitization is also reducing the leakage and improving the delivery of government spending.

Government’s ambitious project, Housing for all by 2022, will also boost the infrastructure spending as government is targeted to build 2 crore houses in urban areas and 3 crore houses in rural India.
3. Rural Consumption
The rural economy is also rebounding as nominal wage growth in rural India at increasing trajectory. The farm output is also expected to rise after two consecutive years of good monsoon.

The Small cap stocks have gone up but still there are many companies which are under-researched and potential high growth, thus scope for rerating.
