Overweight on financials and banks, underweight on IT sector: Rupesh Patel
"In terms of sectoral positioning, we have significant overweight in on financials in our portfolio, and within that banks and large banks, they are the significant overweight," Rupesh Patel, Nippon India MF said to CNBC-TV18. "If we look at large banks, then in current environment, when interest rates are going up, they have strong CASA franchisee which helps them in terms of their cost of funding. If we look at credit costs, then NPAs of last cycle, they are very well recognized and provided for and broad economic momentum in India seems pretty good and we do not feel that in the near term, there is any risk as far as credit costs are concerned."

However, Patel is underweight on IT Sector. "We generally tend to be underweight on sectors companies, which have global orientation as far as their growth is concerned. So, one sector where we are maintaining we had and we still continue to have underweight position is information technology." Patel said that while these companies did very well in post-COVID world, there are concerns on slowdown or recession in developed world. "IT budgets, there seem to be some uncertainty around that. So, considering the risks involved, this is one sector and I mean generally companies which have which have global orientation we have underweight stance in our portfolios."
