Prior to founding Sana Securities, I practiced as a capital markets attorney in London, Delhi and Mumbai where I advised companies and financial advisors in their capital raising efforts. I studied law at the University of Pune, and specialised in securities regulations at the New York University. In 2006, I started managing my own portfolio and in 2011, I got involved with investment operations on full time basis. This is all what I do now.
Academically, I studied history, law and securities regulations but never studied finance; I am more familiar with the stock markets and finance than I am with history and law, This has somewhat shaken my faith in traditional education; I am someone who spends a lot of time reading about the economy and markets; I never feel comfortable accepting conclusions, unless the idea is simple to understand;
I understand the English language but sometimes I think people in the financial world do extreme violence to this language in an effort to put their point across. This either complicates matters or it ensures that I do not understand what they mean.
