On to my next adventure..

Sorry folks, I haven’t been regular with my blog for the last few weeks. Some exciting developments have happened on a personal front and hence the irregular updates.

I have a New Job!

Yup! I am on to my next adventure and have joined FundsIndia (the largest online investment platform in India) based out of Chennai as their Head of Research for Mutual Funds.

Going back, the intent of starting this blog was to share whatever I learnt on investing from my own experience, my talented colleagues, my interactions with experienced investors (thanks to my earlier job as a part of research in a large wealth management firm) and the behavior of a large set of different clients.

The hope was, my learnings and mistakes would be of some help to you in improving your investment experience. But all said and done, there was only a certain level of bandwidth that I could manage trying to work on weekends and attempting to write every Saturday. The usual asks of life often did come in between.

The new role, hopefully, gives me a far bigger bandwidth in terms of access to fund managers, testing out different investment strategies, trying out behavioral nudges and actually implementing these solutions using technology to help a lot more people.

Now the great news for you is that, as always, I will be sharing with you everything that I learn, most likely, with much better insights and covering a wider range of topics.

Going forward, I will be writing both on the FundsIndia blog and my personal blog (some stuff which can’t be covered there).

The few big questions which I would be attempting to solve:

  1. How to help people handle and take advantage of a bear market?
  2. How to help people cut risk during a bubble?
  3. How to solve for the never ending cycle of moving from one fund to another fund based on past performance?

and the list goes on..

Obviously, these are life long pursuits, but nevertheless some bit of craziness and overconfidence helps.

I am also looking out for some awesome folks who can join us as a part of research to try their hand at solving these problems. If you think you fit the bill (preferably with 2+ years of relevant experience and loads of curiosity & excitement about investing), mail me your resume at arunkumar.r@fundsindia.com.

A Big Thank You!!

Whatever I am today, I owe everything to each and every one of you who gave me your most important resource, TIME, to read my views.

I shall be forever indebted for the love, support and encouragement you have always given me. I look forward to your blessings and hope to be of much more help in improving your lives going forward.

As always, Happy Investing folks πŸ™‚

P.S: Right now, there are a lot of new improvements being done and hence give me a few more months before you evaluate the platform and give me your feedback.

Also I have my 10 Year SIP going on in another platform which I report every month in my blog. Had no clue on this job change back then πŸ™‚
Still undecided on whether to change as the reporting might become complicated. Anyway based on your feedback, I will take a call.

  4. Hope this new assignment brings all the more from you in terms of your experience and analytics, both.
    Heartiest congratulations to you on this enriching journey.
    We hope your blogs would be as unbiased and transparent as they have been and your new job would not limit it in terms of corporate policy and your time constraint.

  5. Hi Arun. I found your articles very thought provoking and intense. Your write-ups were one of my favourites. I can only hope that your articles will remain unbiased as before, after joining Fundsindia. And IMHO, in this tech savvy age, joining (and hoping that millenials too invest in it) does not ring a sweet bell. Fundsindia, which is a regular only platform- has only one way to go- downhill. However large the current base may be. Forgive my bluntness. Though my well wishes are with you.
    Regards, Kuntal.
