FORBES INDIA’S CAPITAL PRESERVATION PORTFOLIO
When the going gets tough, the tough get going. At a time when the equity markets are not at their best, Forbes India decided to look for companies that can navigate through tough times.

If an investor had invested Rs. 1,000 in each of these 15 companies, by the end of 11 years she would have made Rs. 2.9 lakh or 32 percent annually. That is more than twice the number when compared to the BSE Sensex, which delivered 14 percent during the same period.
