We all want more exposure because that is the lifeblood of a successful business. 

Unfortunately, most people don’t earn anywhere near the exposure they want because they don’t know how and they don’t have a documented process to produce it consistently. They’ll dabble a little here and there, and when they don’t get the results they’re looking for, most will simply throw their hands up in exasperation and exclaim, “I guess this doesn’t work!”

On the other hand, oil & gas has been the biggest underweight (UW). The sector has 16.7 per cent in the Nifty. However, its MF allocation is just 12.2 per cent.


Experts say the UW stance is on account of Reliance Industries (RIL). “RIL’s weight in the index is nearly 15 per cent.
