Welcome to my blog!
My is Rishi and I am student of value investing. Here, I'll talk about all things financial with a focus on investing. Which raises the question - who am I and why am I writing this? :)
My journey into the world of personal finance started several years ago when I entered the workforce. On my first day at the job, I was handed a binder of mutual fund prospectuses to select my 401(k) contributions. I realized that even though I had been to graduate school, I was ill-equipped to make financial decisions. I soon learned that my colleagues – some of them 10 to 20 years my senior – were in the same boat. So I took it upon myself to learn the basics. During my research, I came across The Warren Buffett Way by Robert Hagstrom and started learning about Buffett, businesses and investing.
What started as a curiosity became a passion - during the last seven years, I have read several books and countless articles and attended a Berkshire Hathaway annual meeting. I have been managing my family’s portfolio with good results and feel that I am now in a position to share the knowledge with others. The idea is to present information about topics such as retirement planning, stocks, mutual funds and estate planning among other things in an educational format so people can use that information to make their own decisions.
I have a selfish motive as well – to learn from the collective wisdom and improve my investing skills!
