The functions of the Equity Investment Management team are spread across two sub-verticals catering to their specific investor classes:
Retirement Benefits Equity
  • Equity and equity-related investments became a mandated part of the investments for retirement benefits trusts via regulation by the Ministry of Labour and the Ministry of Finance in 2015.
  • Equity investments would allow retirement benefits trusts to take advantage of the long-term wealth creation prospects of equity asset class.
  • We recognise the importance of capital preservation (an inherent requirement of retirement benefits investments) and other unique requirements of retirement benefit trusts along with the volatile nature of equity instruments (as compared to their debt counterparts), and thus a focused unit for managing equity investments was formed at Darashaw.
  • The Retirement Benefits Equity team receives research inputs on eligible equity stocks for investment from the Technical Research desk for the formulation of client specific investment strategies.
High Net Worth Individuals
  • We have been providing Portfolio Management Services to eligible investors for past two decades, having thus managed investments across economic cycles since then.

  • We have taken aggressive cash calls during stressful investment environments, benefitting investors tremendously by preserving capital.
  • Portfolios are constructed using Long Term Technical Research, which guides investments into and out of various stocks, thus providing individual investors with a unique approach towards their investments.
