It goes without saying that if the world was minus Benjamin Graham and Warren Buffett, the idea for Safal Niveshak wouldn’t have existed as well.
Graham and Buffett have put enormous number of ideas into my head, which I have been sharing with you ever since Safal Niveshak was born. Reading their work had made a lot of difference to my life as an investor and human being.
However, there is one more person whom I’ve never mentioned on this platform, but who has been a great influence on the behavioral side of the analyst within me.
That person is Prof. Sanjay Bakshi, one of the best minds in India in the fields of Value Investing and Behavioral Finance, and whom I’ve been reading for the past few years through his lecture notes, presentations, and articles.
Prof. Bakshi teaches MBA students (at MDI Gurgaon) two popular courses: “Behavioral Finance & Business Valuation” and “Financial Shenanigans & Governance”.
He is also the CEO of Tactica Capital Management, a boutique firm engaged in deep value investing.
Given the immense respect I have for Prof. Bakshi, it was a great feeling when he wrote to me recently with his appreciation for Safal Niveshak. In fact, I can easily call it one of the best moments of my life as an investor.
Anyways, after Prof. Bakshi wrote to me, I did not miss a beat before requesting to meet him. 🙂
He’s been highly supportive and has agreed to meet me – and has also agreed for an interview – on 29th July (a day after the “Art of Investing Workshop” in New Delhi).
By the way, if you haven’t already done it, click here to register for the New Delhi Workshop scheduled for 28th July 2012. I’m accepting just 5 more registrations, so you must act fast!
Anyways, I’m going to meet Prof. Bakshi on the 29th, and also pick his brains on the subject of Value Investing.
I need your help!
I need your help in finalizing the questions that I must ask Prof. Bakshi…on your behalf.
I need to finalize a maximum of 10 questions, and thus invite you to send me the ones you would’ve asked Prof. Bakshi had you met him personally.
The questions must be around “stock market investing” in general and “value investing” in particular, like…
- How do I get started as a value investor?
- What are the key habits I must practice to become a value investor?
…but exclude ones like:
- What stock do I buy?
- What do you think about XYZ stock?
You can send me your questions via the Comments section below.
Once I receive your questions (over the next one week), I will consolidate them and finalize the 10 that I will ask Prof. Bakshi in the meeting. So just get going!
This is your golden opportunity to dive into the mind of Prof. Bakshi and pull out some amazing pearls of wisdom on Value Investing.
So I’ll wait for your questions, which you can submit by writing them in the Comments section below.
