UTI Mastershare Unit Scheme has a long standing track record of uninterrupted annual dividend distribution across all market cycles - be it bearish or bullish.

UTI Mastershare Unit Scheme, an open ended equity scheme predominantly invests in large cap companies having competitive advantage in their respective fields. It follows an investment style of Growth at Reasonable Price (GARP) for stock picking. That means, given the underlying growth in earnings of a company, how much is the reasonable price that one should pay to buy that stock in the portfolio. This approach gives it a framework to buy companies having future earnings growth as well as valuation comfort.

The competitive franchise that UTI Mastershare Unit Scheme looks for is built over a long period of time by companies that are fundamentally strong with control on borrowings, consistent revenue growth, focus on profitability and higher return on capital than cost of capital and consistent operating cash-flows generation. Such companies generate free cash flows for future expansion and avoid dilution of existing shares. Typically such companies enjoy pricing power for a long period of time.

This combined approach of GARP plus Competitive Franchise enables UTI Mastershare Unit Scheme to invest in companies where,

1. The market is underestimating the companies' ability to sustain growth over much longer phase or the benefits of pricing power.

2. The growth trajectory is improving through industry wide phenomenon like favorable demand cycle, consolidation, clearances of regulatory hurdles or through the company specific factors like cost competitiveness, prudent capacity expansion.

3. The business is capital intensive but the companies invest prudently, execute efficiently.

4. The companies having opportunities to reinvest cash flows at high Return on Capital Employed (RoCE)

5. The relative valuation within the sector is attractive.

This in turn gives the investors a long term wealth creation opportunity with lower volatility, by owning a portfolio of quality companies.
