HDFC’s mutual fund company, HDFC AMC witnessed strong buying on Tuesday despite US-based GQG Partners offloading shares to the tune of 397 crore in a bulk deal. HDFC AMC stock rallied by at least 5% and settled near its day’s high. Experts believe the company’s future performance will be driven by equity-oriented funds, new product launches, new market share, and steady yields.

On BSE, HDFC AMC’s share price closed at 1,764.80 apiece up by 81.80 or 4.86%. The stock has zoomed by at least 5.07% with an intraday high of 1,768.45 apiece.

In the initial days of March, Rajiv Jain’s GQG which is the leading US-based global equity investment boutiques made one of the largest mega buying in an open market in Adani Group stocks.

However, buying in HDFC AMC can be attributed to the huge investment by SBI Mutual Fund.

As per the data, SBI MF purchased 47,33,788 equity shares at 1,600 apiece in HDFC AMC — aggregating to 757.41 crore.


Talking about HDFC AMC, Yadhu Ramachandran, Research Analyst at Geojit Financial Services said, “though HDFC AMC’s financial growth is muted, the continuous focus on equity-oriented funds, new product launches, capturing new market share and steady yields are expected to enhance its performance in the near future.”

Ramachandran explained that HDFC AMC has a healthy pipeline of new product launches and steady SIP momentum to support AUM growth. However, the expansion of AUM and gaining additional market share across all segments are expected to boost overall growth in the near term.

Further, Geojit analyst said, “the management expects volumes to more than compensate for loss in margins. Green ticks were also seen in terms of onboarding of new customers, improved digital assets, and user experience.”
