Chennai Investor Meet Photos

Here are some photographs from the Chennai investor meet on Nov. 1st, organised by Srinivasan Sundararaman of  MoneyKare, Wealth Managers, and myself .

The event was partially sponsored by Sundaram Mutual AMC.

What started out as a 1 to 1.5 hour meet in my mind was realised into a full-fledged one-day meet by Srini. If the participants found the meet useful, the credit is entirely Srini’s.

This was the agenda.

Mr. Mohsin Bijepuri was kind to enough to introduce the speakers and keep time.

The following photos were taken by Ramakrishna Sripathy who was kind enough to bring his camera to the meet.

By the grace of god I was able to speak for two sessions without any discomfort.

Srini

 

Srini with S R Chandrashekar who spoke on taxation and answered several queries. This was the last session. I was so tired that I could barely keep my eyes open. Even then I could sense that it was a fantastic talk.

Note: This is a not-for-profit event.  Srini presented the accounts at the end of the day.  Taking into account the sponsors contribution, the registration fee and the expenses (hall, food, video) we had a grand surplus of Rs. 1500. This will be donated to an orphanage.

Srini and I would like to thank all the participants, speakers and Sundaram Mutual for making the event a grand success.  Special thanks to those who travelled from Bangalore.
