Video: R. Balakrishnan on "investing for keeps: in equities I trust"

Those who attended the second Chennai investor workshop had the privilege to listen to R. Balakrishnan – Crisil co-founder; former head of equity research at DSP Merrill Lynch, former executive VP of Edelweiss, Money Life columnist and blogger (to name a few!)

He spoke about “investing for keeps: in equities I trust”. The video was shot by my friend, Guhan Ramanan.

Here is the post referred to in the talk: Backtesting a three stock portfolio: L&T, ITC, Axis Bank

Want to conduct a sales-free "basics of money management" session in your office?
I conduct free seminars to employees or societies. Only the very basics and getting-started steps are discussed (no scary math):For example: How to define financial goals, how to save tax with a clear goal in mind; How to use a credit card for maximum benefit; When to buy a house; How to start investing; how to invest for and after retirement etc. depending on the audience. If you are interested, you can contact me: freefincal [at] Gmail [dot] com. You need to only cover my travel fare for the session.
