Alternative Investment Portfolio – June 2023

        Nifty 19000

Nifty touched a milestone of 19,000 in June.

Beginning of the year, the index had slipped to sub-17000 levels in March’23 but has since rallied ~11% following risk-on sentiments. Indian equities are experiencing PE re-rating and have been supported by strength in global markets as well. FPI flows into Indian equities have turned positive with the change in the macro narrative.

Alternative Investment Portfolio Performance

This month I have tried a new platform Lendpartnerz.  As a start, I have invested only in one deal. Would be closely monitoring the performance before deploying more capital.

Lend Partnerz

A lot of people have been sharing many new platforms offering alternative investments but I urge everyone to be very conservative while investing in new platforms as most of these new platforms seem to be run by unknown people and do not even provide basic details about deals. Hence it is paramount to avoid taking risks.

The idea is to start  Forum on Randomdimes for discussing investment opportunities, trading, and other finance-related stuff to help create a community that can share their experience on different asset classes and platforms

Update on Klubworks

Many investors have complained that they can’t access deals on the Klub portal. The primary reason is that they might not have registered through the randomdimes referral link as currently, Klub is only showing deals to investors who have been referred through randomdimes or other seasoned investors.

Crypto Investing

Crypto ETF India

BlackRock’s filing for the first spot in Bitcoin Exchange-Traded Fund (ETF) marks a groundbreaking moment for virtual assets. Blackrock is a financial giant with more than USD 10 trillion in assets under management. This has led to optimism in the crypto industry and can push crypto prices as there would be increased demand from Institutional investors also.

You can buy Hardware Wallets on Etherbit as it is highly advised not to keep large amounts on exchanges.

Equity Market

PreIPO Stocks

In the Preipo market lot of interest can be seen in 2 stocks

  • Care Healthcare
  • NSE

The primary reason for that is both companies are profitable with strong performance compared to peers.  It is also expected by next year both will have an IPO.

The current price for NSE has gone over INR 3500 after a stellar performance in the last quarter. Unlisted Zone and Altius are offering the best prices. For a lot higher than 500 we can connect with some large brokers. You may drop a query to us.

Listed Stocks

The Equity market has hit an all-time high but valuation wise it’s still below 2021 levels. While some analysts are predicting 21000 by year-end investors should allocate based on their risk appetite.
