Long-term Thinker

When you enter Gautam Sinha Roy’s cabin on the 10th floor of Motilal Oswal Tower, there is no buzz of CNBC or changing tickers on Bloomberg terminals. Roy prefers to stay away from the daily rumblings of the market and his traders track the prices of his stocks and alert him. He believes it is essential to stay away from the daily noise to have a long-term approach to investing and much of his success comes from exercising that discipline. With little over Rs.11,000 crore in assets under management (AUM), he is the top-performing fund manager in the 3-year category with return of 22.2%. Roy, who began managing MOSt Focused Multicap 35 Fund a little over four-and-a-half-years ago, has seen the fund’s AUM grow at 311% CAGR since the its launch. More recently in January 2015, he also started managing MOSt Focused Long Term Fund whose AUM stands at Rs.738 crore.
