ll right, yeah, if we can just begin with your background and what led you to finance and investing.

I was born and brought up in the Marwari family in India and the Marwari community in India is known for having business in its genes. So, ever since my early teenage years, I was always fascinated by the concept of entrepreneurship, especially by the fact that once a solid foundation is established for a business, the owners don't work for money, rather, money works for them. I did my bachelor's in commerce with a specialisation in accountancy, so pursuing higher studies in the field Finance seemed like a natural extension. I did my ms in finance from ICP University in Hyderabad, India. And I also did my MBA in finance from my university in India but India. Later on, I also went on to become a CFA charterholders from CFA Institute us.
