My guest today is Saket Mehrotra. Saket is a Senior associate at Tusk Investments handling FMCG & Pharmaceuticals for their Indian Public Equities portfolio. He also shares his thoughts on investing on his website, saketmehrotra.com, and as the host of Stock Room Sunday presented by Stocktwits. He also somehow manages to find time to contribute as a writer for Investing.com and MoneyControl.com! In this conversation, we cover trends and areas of growth in Indian Equities, his writing process, and how he converted fans online into paying subscribers.
I hope you enjoy my conversation with Saket Mehrotra.
