Portfolio Management, Investment Advisory and Fund Management.
As Investment Advisors to a host of Retirement Benefit trusts,
our desk has helped these trusts achieve comprehensive credit
analysis and target higher returns. We work in a formal or
informal capacity with numerous retirement fund trusts, helping
them with an inter-sector and intra sector portfolio analysis of
the retirement funds and suggest strategies for Asset Liability
Management and Risk Management.
Backed by our excellent research department, our strength has
been in accurately identifying trends in the markets,
shortlisting mis-priced securities as well as single out unique
issue structures that cater to the Retirement Fundís needs.
In a dynamic interest rate scenario and with the investment
pattern for Retirement Funds undergoing a sea change, this
service is being sought after by an increasing number of trusts.
Retirement Benefit Intermediation
We are the largest Retirement Fund intermediaries in the
country with an annual market share of around 23 - 25% and an
increasing market penetration year by year that has helped us to
hold on to our position. Retirement Benefit Intermediation is
one of our core competencies owing to our parent company's
strong broking presence in the fixed income securities market.
With the investment pattern changing very fast, Darashaw, today,
stands as one of the very few brokerage housesí being able to
cater to all the needs of Retirement Funds with respect to the

Retirement Benefit Consulting
We are currently consulting the state governments, civic
bodies (including municipal corporations), corporates, public
sector undertakings, banks, etc. on designing or re-engineering
Retirement Benefit schemes (mainly for pension schemes). In the
corporate sector we have aggressively helped corporates seek
exemption from the government-mandated scheme to provide higher
benefits to the employees and benefit from scientific portfolio
and investment management practice.
Our comprehensive suit of consultancy for the State
Governments, Municipal Corporations and other similar Public
Sector Organization has helped many to understand the critical
variables that effect their pension system as well as the ways &
means of controlling the liabilities and, on the other hand,
simulating the assetization strategies that can fund the pension
system liabilities over a long term.
