Rakesh Jhunjhunwala Portfolio Performance in retrospect.

How did the portfolio perform as of the end of December 2021 quarter compared to different time frames in the past. Interestingly, the portfolio of Rakesh Jhunjhunwala virtually did not make any returns between September 2015 and March 2020, when the markets bottomed out after the pandemic. The real story started after that.

Between Mar-20 and Sep-21, the portfolio value went up from Rs.8,356 crore to Rs.24,235 crore. That is a 2.9 fold appreciation. In fact, if you consider the last 1 year between Sep-20 and Sep-21, the portfolio was up by a whopping 87%.

What about the movement between Sep-21 and Dec-21? The value of the portfolio has moved up from Rs.24,235 crore to Rs.34,337 crore. However, this value accretion largely happened due to the listing of Star Health & Allied Insurance and Metro Brands in the quarter. Hence numbers are not comparable on the returns barometer.
