Can I do thematic investing or sector-investing through QuietGrowth Portfolios?
On thematic investing
No, the QuietGrowth Portfolios are not thematic portfolios. Your portfolio will not have deliberate exposure to a long-term macroeconomic theme or trend because it is tough to predict the outperformance of such a theme or trend. Often, most of the future growth of a trend and associated risks are already factored in the current valuation of public companies operating in that trend.
On sector-based investing
Also, QuietGrowth Portfolios are not sector-based portfolios. Your portfolio will not have extensive exposure to a specific sector, with an expectation of that sector outperforming the broad market indices in the short term. This is because it is tough to predict the outperformance of a specific sector.
If you adopt the core-satellite investing approach, then QuietGrowth portfolios can serve as the 'core'. You can consider having thematic investments and sector-based investments of your choice as a part of the 'satellite'.
Refer to the 'Thematic portfolios' and 'Sector portfolios' sections in our Investment Methodology page for more information.
