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 Design Rules
ViniyogIndia 🧩 Multifactor Portfolio is based on a Multifactor Regime Switching Strategy where Factor exposure is controlled based on Market Regimes.
Market states/regimes are modelled using a combination of proprietary + macro indicators. This is combined with past performance to dynamically control factor exposures over market regimes.
- Portfolio of 15-20 stocks picked from the NSE universe having the best Factor rank based on Market Regime forecast
- Further refined by using a combination of one or more secondary factors to maximize risk-adjusted returns
- Illiquidity filter to remove low volume| turnover stocks
- Balanced at least once a month to keep the turnover low
Risk Management Rules
Risk exposure to the overall portfolio is reduced by:
- Proprietary asset allocation rule to control equity exposure depending on market conditions
- Limits on exposure to any single stock
- Conservative nature of the factor combination used to reduce downside risks
Asset Allocation Rules
Allocation to Equities is based on a proprietary mathematical function that uses market parameter(s) as the independent variable(s). Excess funds are allocated to Liquid & Gold ETFs.
This portfolio is suitable for conservative to moderately aggressive investors

Additionally, returns from standard factors such as market beta and momentum contribute to the overall portfolio returns. Return from size and value factors are not statistically significant.
