Manish Sabharwal knows what makes the Indian economy tick, and what could make it tick a whole lot faster. He is after all the person who is providing a key input for that growth i.e. people! Manish believes that China’s pivot has brought forward global interest in India...and the fact there is no scalable alternative, makes the India story even more enticing.

Devina Mehra’s claim to fame recommends HDFC Bank stock at an adjusted price of less than Re 1. But that’s nowhere even close to the successes she has racked up over her career. She founded First Global, which is today one of India’s most successful global research firms. Along the way, she has had a string of successful calls including recommending Amazon in 2001. Her biggest contribution may be the thoroughness with which she researches a stock (which has evolved into a human plus machine process). Listen in to a fascinating conversation where we discuss all this, and our usual favorite topics of portfolio construction, portfolio sizing, and asset allocation. It’s a must-listen... Read more
