Hey there, I am Shankar Nath. And thank you for visiting my blog.
This writing outlet allows me to express my two passions – investing and teaching
I started off by dabbling in stocks in 2003 without ever being certain what I was doing. Does that remind you of someone you know? I was using screeners for low PE ratio stocks or charting for break-outs or looking for 52 week lows. But all this while, I would be really active in some months and then go into deep hibernation. Oh, and I lost more than I profited.

How did I get here?
I have over 15 years experience in the banking, financial services and insurance. My work took me to excellent organizations such as GE Money, ICICI Bank, Chubb Insurance, HDFC Life Insurance and most recently with ETMONEY. From start-ups to established financial giants to overseas assignments, I’ve worked on different business models, product and consumer sets across India and the Asia-Pacific region.
I learnt a lot about investing in the stock markets and must have read hundreds of books on the subject. But the real wealth was gained in discussions with CEOs, CFOs and investment managers who graciously shared with me their secrets on evaluating long-term investment opportunities. I wanted to share what I have learnt will all and this led me to start this blog in 2018.
