ViniyogIndia offers model portfolios based on Quantitative Factor Investing. Factors are quantitative attributes used to explain asset returns.
Factor strategies have been extensively researched globally as well as in India. The below chart for example, summarizes the risk-return characteristics of single-factor portfolios in India between October 2005 and June 2017.
Over the period, all major single-factor portfolios outperformed the S&P LargeMidCap. However, only Low Volatility, Quality & Momentum delivered better risk-adjusted returns (returns per unit of risk) than S&P BSE LargeMidCap.

- Portfolio of 15-20 stocks picked from the NSE universe having the highest Quality rank
- Quality is measured as the ratio of Gross Margin to Total Assets measured over the past year

This portfolio is suitable for moderately aggressive investors
Based on the back-tested results, between 2010 – 2021, the 💎 Quality strategy generated a compounded rate of return of 25.9% compared to Nifty500 return of 12.1%.
To interpret the sources of return for our strategy we perform a regression analysis using Carhart 4 Factor Model. The results are shown in the table below:
The monthly alpha or excess return for the strategy is 0.69%. This is generated using a combination of factors and asset allocation rules that tries enhance portfolio returns while reducing risks.
Additionally, returns from standard factors such as market beta, size and momentum contribute to the overall portfolio returns. Return from the value factor is not statistically significant.
