My Experience with Markets

I started my investment journey in 2017 when I read a book called the Intelligent Investor. I recommend every serious investor read that book or at least go through its summary

My Investment Philosophy

Try to think of yourself as a listed company. If you are to invest Rs. 100 in the market, you should know your Weighted Average Cost of Capital and the Cost of Equity & Cost of Debt. If you are not able to get returns above the risk-free rate and the equity risk premium on your investments through equity investments, then it doesn't make sense to even invest in direct equity. You are better off buying Index Etfs in a proportion that is best suitable to your risk profile. I personally, try to maintain a yearly Ke(Cost of Equity) of 13-15% in my portfolio or a beta of .3-.5, and try that it is not very concentrated, and this approach goes against a lot of what is there on my blog. But opinions do make the market. Personally, I don't want to land up in a space where I get a heart attack if a concentrated portfolio does not perform and goes bust.

Purpose of Writing This Blog

Hope through my blog posts, I am able to not only record my adventures in the markets but also share some of my learnings and get feedback on them. I would try to record my experiences with the market and some core concepts I learned very late in life here so that other investors can start earlier than I did and benefit through the magic of compounding.

 

Most Importantly, I want to make this the All-Links-In-One website any investor can come to for getting a head start on the best podcasts, books, research tools, websites, courses and blogs on corporate finance and value investing.

About Me

I am a marketing professional at heart with 8+ years of experience in the automobile industry. Portfolio of accomplishments include increasing revenue, improving brand awareness and driving profit improvements at the Jabalpur based dealership of M/s Force Motors Ltd. over the last 8 years.

I have worked with many top executives in various industries over the past 8+ years and helped them make better decisions and delivered the sustainable success they desired.

I am passionate about achieving better results for my clients—results that go beyond financial and are uniquely tailored, pragmatic, holistic, and enduring.

I have trained many students in fulfilling their MBA dreams in the last 2 years through my GMAT Prep Startup.

Being lucky enough to realise that my true calling is finance, I have become a blog finance writer.

 

Occasionally, I do still take up contracts for MBA Test Prep consultation and tutoring. If you are enquiring for GMAT Tutoring/Consultation, you can fill the form below and I shall get back to you.
