This month I have added FinancePeer in my portfolio to take exposure to Education Loan borrowing. Apart from publishing my portfolio performance I will also cover :
- My Receivable Finance Portfolio Investment
- Capital Structure of my investment and Liquidity Analysis
- I have started investing FinancePeer
- I have increased my portfolio exposure to RupeeCircle,OMLP2P
- Have cut down my “InstaLoan” Portfolio in lenden .No more fresh deployment to instamoney
Key Points from this month’s performance are:
- If you see lendenClub performance it has gradually dipped. Major culprit has been insta loans. Now as I am cutting down my Insta Loan exposure hopefully I will be able to gain 1-2% yield in next 4-5 months.
- I2I has been more or less (between 14-16%). People who are starting in I2I should focus on safer loans( preferably C and good D) .
- RupeeCircle has been the only platform where yield have actually gone up with time. This is the first month where I have delay in EMI.If it doesnt go back to normal I may see a drop 1-2% in yield after 2 months when I put it as an NPA though I have already considered 3% of return as NPA in form of provisioning.
- Cashkumar have only 2.5% but due to short term lending and small size of book overall returns look low,which should improve with time.
- FinancePeer I am sticking to only educational loans .Hope NPA are low as promised in the category.
- OMLP2P ,as of now I have not faced any NPA but as my investment are fresh I will wait for a month or 2 before giving any verdict.
Invoice Discounting Performance:
I have been investing in a couple of Invoice discounting platforms. Some of the companies whose invoice I inivested in are Paytm and Indian Oil. Most of the invoice are blue chip.Some of the Invoice available to invest are:
The range of yield is between 12-15% for the invoices and duration 30 -90 days
My current Portfolio yield and duration:
Lot of people ask why they should invest in other assets when equity can give 10-15% in long run. The answer is ,do they have the capacity to digest monthly volatility of 5-6% on their complete corpus.Second, how do they mange their liquidity. What if they need money in next 3-6 months will they book losses in mutual funds and redeem them?
Alternate asset class is a way to fill the place between low yield and high yield , low liquidity vs high Liquidity .It also ensure construction of a portfolio where asset classes have low correlation among them.
Let’s Look at how a conventional portfolio looks like:
The allocation may vary depending on age. For instance a 35 year guy will allocate more to equity than 45 year old. If someone has 20 Lakh then 10% is saving = 2Lakhs, 25% small cap = 5 Lakh etc.
Now look at a portfolio with alternatives:
Three things stand out:
- Overall return is higher 11.7% compared to 10.7% as our capital is not tied to low yielding assets.
- We have more liquidity. Almost 50% portfolio cashflow is received within 2 years ,which implies we can use it for emergency or for near terms goal as we have more certainty.
- Our asset classes have very low correlation among themselves.
in original portfolio our equity can have 10% drawdown in a month and as 50% of our portfolio is in equity almost 5 percent of our portfolio will drop.
In alternate portfolio we have reduced equity allocation to 30% thus only 3% impact ,thus overall volatility of portfolio drops.
Therefore adding alternate asset classes in portfolio helps to improve Returns, Liquidity and lower Volatility
