Key Points

CAMS offers technology-enabled infrastructure to MFs and is involved in the entire life cycle of an account. The processing services are fully outsourced by the MF industry and is concentrated between two RTAs (CAMS & Karvy). Such services account for ~80% of CAMS’ overall revenues. The relationship with MFs is very sticky owing to high level of integration, cost benefits, data loss risk, etc. Its average relationship with 10 largest clients is ~20 years. Continued financialization of savings, growing investor base and growing AUMs are main growth drivers for CAMS

CAMS business model is highly scalable, has good margin profile and w/c is a non-factor which results in stellar ROE/RoIC. Currently, Cash and investments are ~76% of its net worth. It has strong cash conversion (FY20 OCF/EBITDA of 0.7x and FCFF conversion of ~107%) which enables continuous investments behind technology platforms.

Key Risk Factor:

Although there is limited risk on account of lack of core competency (insourcing) or tedious process, longer integration time and data loss associated with switching RTA, M&A activity at fund level may result in client loss. Larger Bank backed AMC may explore insourcing which can hamper revenues.
