India saw the most number of economic reforms in 2017-18. It was a year when the GST was implemented, the IBC gained momentum, the NCLT saw resolutions getting nearer. More bad loans were moving towards resolution than even before. The government decisively moved on, ensuring Make in India works and DBT gained momentum across services.

Yet, we found that few investors were actually betting in sectors which would see greater traction from these reforms. Instead, markets mostly focussed on companies which were agnostic to government policy and showing steady performance. We focussed more on growth and refused to see turnarounds.

With capital goods, construction, steel, agriculture and infra likely to recover sharply on the back of sustained reforms and public investment, the market seems confused about whether it should shift its strategic outlook. The prediction of a normal monsoon has further reinforced the economic recovery theme.

It remains to be seen how market strategies are redrawn to capture emerging opportunities.
