India's Best Fund Managers 2020

Atul Bhole, DSP Mutual Fund | India's Best Fund Managers

DSP Mutual Fund’s Atul Bhole does not shy away from expensive valuation because the best don’t come cheap

Back in 2014, a TV commercial showed a man ignoring his wife’s order to step back into the house. Instead, he prefers to sit out and read the weather report. As luck would have it, the weather prediction for the day shows temperature soaring, low-pressure resulting in a hurricane followed by torrential rain and dust storm. Subjected to such harsh weather conditions, the man is left covered in grime and muck. However, his house continues to look as bright as new, thanks to an all-weather paint from Asian Paints. The ad, in a way, points to Atul Bhole, vice president, DSP Mutual Fund’s (DSPMF) stock buys — quality that does not crack, come harsh sun or rain.
