    • Relevant Universe - We have identified a relevant universe of about 500 companies based on market capitalisation (above 1000 crores preferably), qualitative governance filters, long term attractiveness and ROE profile of business amongst other parameters.
    • Investible Universe - From this relevant universe, an investible universe of companies is created based on assessment of past and future fundamental variables like revenue and EBIDTA growth, cashflow conversion efficiency and core ROE of the business amongst several other relevant variables which may be unique to a business.
