Hello readers,


Buoyed by the great success , popularity and readership of this investing related blog, along with my undying passion towards long term and value investing , I have recently launched a investment advisory or portfolio management services start-up called “ Margin of Safety Advisory Pvt Ltd”

What “Margin of safety” means :

This concept has been considered as key cornerstone of value investing by big investors like Benjamin Graham and Warren Buffet. Margin of safety is the difference between market price and intrinsic/fair value of the asset. The return on investment is directly linked to the margin of safety you deploy.


Mission/Goals :This start up has been launched with the goals of providing

  • Reasonable(above average) & consistent returns through long term & safe investing(Value investing)
  • Reliable and competent services to clients while protecting their capital and interests
  • Absolutely bottom up and research driven stock selection to ensure high conviction and high quality stocks/ businesses
  • Focus investing – Investment in 15-18 high conviction business/ stock ideas to ensure market beating returns(good alpha)
  • Low turnover – Targeting low turnover, 20-25% per year so that average holding  period is 4 to 5 years. This will reduce speculation tendencies as well as minimize brokerage and taxes.
