  • NJ Asset Management (NJAM) is part of the NJ Group which includes NJ Wealth, India's largest non-bank mutual fund (MF) distributor, contributing more than ₹2,23,739* Cr to the assets managed by the Indian MF Industry.
  • The NJ Group is based out of Surat in Gujarat and has a presence in more than 185+ locations with over 2,062+ employees.
  • NJAM started operations in 2010 with Portfolio Management Services (PMS) and in 2021 as a Mutual Fund (MF).
  • NJAM currently manages more than ₹8,200* Cr in assets across both MF & PMS verticals.
  • NJAM follows a factor-based approach for all our PMS and MF offerings to determine asset allocation, select stocks, and assign weights to these.
  • This approach uses advanced data analytics to analyse past data and develop rules that identify the presence of investment factors. Complementary rules are then combined into models and portfolio decisions are made using these without any human intervention.
  • This puts the onus of performance on the rules that we use and makes them the cornerstone of all our efforts.
  • We have created our own database and analysis engine, NJ's Smart Beta Platform, which allows our researchers to test strategies on more than 20 years of market and fundamental data for over 1,190 companies.

Factor Research Platform

NJ Smart Beta is a proprietary research platform developed by NJ AMC. The NJ Smart Beta platform allows researchers to use a wide range of factor parameters that have been rigorously tested for robustness and analyse present favourable risk and return characteristics.

One of the key features of the NJ Smart Beta platform is its ability to dynamically combine multiple factors, weighting methodologies, and select a suitable universe for constructing model portfolios. This flexibility allows researchers to tailor portfolios according to specific investment objectives and preferences.

To support the platform, we have curated a vast dataset covering data from over 1190 companies, spanning a period of 20 years. This rich and extensive dataset provides the foundation for sound research and informed decision-making, enhancing the reliability and accuracy of our investment strategies.

For the competition, we encourage participants to use the NJ Smart Beta platform to help solve the case study. It provides them with access to an institutional grade factor-based research platform. The use of NJ Smart Beta is NOT mandatory for solving the case study.

To learn more about the NJ Smart Beta platform and its capabilities, we would like to invite you to watch our informative video.
