IFM Investors’ Better Beta started with a question – ‘What makes for a good portfolio?’ A clear question deserves a clear answer…good stocks have high quality earnings which are likely to grow. They become buying opportunities when those earnings are available at a good price. A good portfolio, will contain a well-diversified sets of those stocks. Our approach is designed to invest in such portfolios in a pragmatic and cost-effective manner.
