The revenues overall are down over the last 3 years but that is due to the lower expense ratio insisted upon by SEBI. That has been partially compensated by the higher equity flows, but the shortfall still remains. However, the profits have been boosted through leaner operations, digital initiatives and lower asset impairment requirements.

Investment Perspective for Aditya Birla Sun Life AMC Ltd

This will only be the fourth AMC to be listed and here are some investment arguments.

a) In terms of relative valuations, it is cheaper than HDFC AMC and Nippon Mutual Fund but more expensive than UTI Mutual Fund. Lower equity AUM will be an issue.

b) The indicative market cap of Birla AMC at Rs.20,505 crore is about 7.5% of the total assets under management. This is at par with the rate at which most sale deals have happened, so the headroom may be limited.

c) In the last few months, there has been a distinct shift towards hybrids, gold funds and passive funds. That is likely to maintain the pressure on the top line growth of the mutual fund industry in general.

At the current market cap of Rs.20,505 crore the IPO does appear fully valued. It may not be a value enhancer in the short term, but over the long term it still remains a veritable play on the big financial savings shift happening in India.
