Equity Training Passion

Gaurav has shared experiences with and trained over 50000 people in several workshops and Invitational lectures in India and Overseas over the last 30 years.

Gaurav’s Fundamental Value vs Price Stock Valuation & Selection workshops are the best investment one can make as one participant commented “learnt more in one day with Gaurav than in my three years degree course”

His Conceptualised and Conducted Fundamental & Financial Workshops attract even Heads of Research  as well as other top participants from SEBI, Mutual Funds, Corporate Houses, PSUs, Broking Houses, Retail & High Net Worth Investors and leading educational institutions and even serve as Internal Training for Leading Broking Groups and Mutual Fund Houses for their Relationship Managers, Franchisees, Staff and Business Associates all over India.

His Fundamental Equity Training is very Practical & anecdotal & he sets up a warm & fun interactive ambience. As he states ”What’s Theory without Application or Academics without Action!”

It’s Legend now that his Workshops always finish overtime as participants simply don’t want to leave… often even refreshments breaks are done away with during training & interaction is on as to keep the momentum going.

He also offers one to one mentoring services for individuals looking for career defining mentorship and training. The benefit of this service is invaluable as a few mentoring sessions with him equate to access to years and years of his vast experience in the capital markets
