Fund Characteristics

Fund Size

At Damora Capital, Ideal size of the AUM is 1-2b$. Maximum amount of assets that we will manage would be upto 10b$. The reason behind this is to provide a reasonable Return on Investment on the managed assets. Also, It is possible to identify several opportunities for this fund size. When the fund size is big enough, the options available for investment with better returns would be far lesser.
