Wizards of Dalal Street: Here's Madhav Bhatkuly's mantra for investing in the time of COVID-19

As coronavirus pandemic has brought the world to a standstill, it is important to shield your investment from value erosion.

Madhav Bhatkuly, CIO of New Horizon Investments, on Tuesday advised how to pandemic-proof your portfolio.

Bhatkuly said, "At this moment everybody is saying, don't fight the Fed but whether you are in a bull market or not is a function of many things. It is a function of what happens to the virus, it is a function of what happens to the great lockdown being exited by different countries."

"I think we have reached a point right now whether it is in the United States and many parts of the world where countries have recognised that it is going to be incredibly difficult to sustain this great lockdown."

"We are already seeing fiscal deficits increasing by almost 20 percent in many countries of the world - Germany is maybe up to 26 percent and these were last numbers that we saw perhaps in World War II."
