At PPFAS Mutual Fund, we are inspired by The Hammurabi Code.

Around 18th Century BC lived a King named Hammurabi who instituted a social law now known as the Hammurabi's code. It is the one of the first evidence of law ever written down. One of the principle features of the code was about the builder - If a builder built a house for a man & the house collapses to cause the death of the owner, then the builder has to be put to death.

Such a punishment seems incredibly harsh especially when there can be many reasons for the collapse. But with such a heavy downside in place, the builder has absolutely no incentive to cut corners in constructing the house. He has to use the best materials & the best building techniques to build the best possible house which will last for a long time. The builder literally has his own skin in the success & longevity of the building.

This type of a system ensures a very strict moral obligation & not just a professional responsibility. How could this same moral obligation be translated to the fund management business?

Ideally, in the fund management profession, the only way to instill a sense of accountability is to ensure that the Fund Management team is investing their own monies along with those of the clients'. At PPFAS Mutual Fund, this ideal transcends into reality, as the key stakeholders in the Fund have invested a substantial portion of their equity investments in .

Having our own skin in the game demonstrates the willingness to link our financial well-being with yours. This also places an implicit onus on us to make optimum use of our time & abilities in order to enhance the scheme's performance and eschew the reckless behaviour that fund managers are sometimes accused of.

By investing in our scheme and disclosing it every month, we are going beyond the extant Regulations. We believe that this one disclosure will serve to inspire greater confidence among our unitholders, than thousands of tomes of assurances ever can.
