Safal Niveshak is 5 Years Old

Safal Niveshak completes five years today. 🙂

A lot has happened in these five quick years, but as with any five-year-old, we’re just getting started.

Most of all, I and Anshul want to thank you for “raising” this initiative to this point — it truly could not have happened without you, dear tribe member.

I know I’ve said it before, but it bears repeating – Thank you so much for reading, for commenting, for your interest and support, for keeping us honest, for helping this entire movement of creating smarter and independent stock market investors become greater and spread wider.

You are magnificent, and we are supremely grateful for your time and attention.

Just in case Safal Niveshak has touched your life, we would be happy and honoured to read your thoughts in the Comments section of this post.

Thanks again for being there!

    Congratulations…Few things are really helpful like you suggested few books to read. Further what we are expecting from your side.
    1. Valuating the stock, ton of information is available however it is very difficult to understand individually…you could conduct weekend online interactive and live session such as basic, medium and advanced. Session price should be affordable or very minimum. Price you can make it separate for Basic, Medium and Advanced.,
    2. Please make forum where we can discuss about particular stock’s pros and cons in your existing site. It will be big demand I think. Let some experts also reply on that. Money Control has comments similar kind I am looking here. More people will join and get benefited

    Thanks for education towards value investment,

To put in words what your are doing so relentlessly and passionately is really difficult but it would be best said that I keep and store everything in my Evernote and had made it a kinda habit to discuss that on alternate night with kids at their bedtime, and trust me they are “loving it” !!!
    Keep pouring …
    Kudos and gratitudes …
    Sincerest Appreciations,
    Warm regards ,

    • Thanks for your suggestions, Manjunath!

      • Pradeep A Gowda says:

        You are doing a very good job.
        I was very new to investing some where last Aug 2015 and I stumbled upon this site while looking to learn for investing. Someone in a stock discussion forum had pointed to this.
        I browsed the site for some time and came to the conclusion this was the site was very genuine.
        Best thing was that it was not about stock tips or predicting where the sensex would head towards, but more about learning about investing and developing an investment framework and philosophy of one’s own and lot of life lessons as well.

        All the very best for completing 5 years and hope to see more such milestones in the future.

  23. Manjunath Jogin says:

    Hi Guys,


  24. Can’t tell you a short course that you did in Bangalore has opened my mind to investing.

    I come from an Arts background and am a practicing Graphic Designer. Being primarily on the creative side, I thought that it was almost impossible to learn the art of investing/finance. But you really demystified it!

    I am now an investor and can tell you I am very happy with the investments I’ve made so far post the course I did. Many thanks to your efforts. Great Job!


  25. Jayachandaran says:

    Congrats. Ur are helping people like us to avoid losses.

  26. Thanks for making me learn the basics of investing .I have learnt a lot and wish one day I can be as pro as you are in finding great businesses. Cheers.

  27. Jitendra Kumar Gupta says:

    Many congratulations Vishal Ji and Anshul Ji.

    I still remember those early days when i was searching for a course in value investing and i found you around in 2012. Like Warren Buffett said that he was fortunate that he born in the US, which already had a culture of value investing started by Graham back in 1920s.

    We too, and i am really, are fortunate now that you started that culture in India helping people like me and many others to learn. There has been immense learning and i am thankful to you and your team.

    We have got so much from you… it will be really worth if at all we can help you in achieving this noble cause.

    In the very first chapter of your value course you talked about the risk of flying low and too high. I think you are still flaying low. I wish you the best….god bless you.

    My best wishes and regards,
    Jitendra Kumar Gupta

  37. Akhilesh Kini says:

    I took tpto your blog upon advise from my Guru..He said you are a person who is very approachable , Responds to queries etc..I have sent you couple of mail but no response yet…As you grow we distance ourself ..I saw Mahatma Gandhi in your reading list ..and I am surprised…

    Wishing you a faster growth to great heights.You may chose to ignore this message or take this message and let me confess, I am pretty much junior to you ..

    Sorry if this message looks like a criticism..Its just a frank and open response..

    • Hi Akhilesh. As I check my emails, I have received a couple of emails from you with you just asking for my mobile number without sharing any agenda etc. I have received a few such emails in the past where I ended up sharing my number, and few guys calling me constantly, asking for stock tips. So you can understand my apprehension in such “blank” emails. 🙂 Thanks!

  38. Indrajeet Singh says:

    Congrats! I think I have been reading blog from very early days and have always looked forward to new posts every week.
