This meetup is about all things investing and personal finance - to share ideas, learn what others are doing, discuss the pros & cons of various investment options, etc. I'm not an investment advisor nor am I affiliated to any fund - this meetup really is just to spread awareness and see what others are doing in this space.
To make this mundane-to-most topic more fun, we'll meet once a month at some central Bangalore pub/café and mix finances with some beers :)
A bit about me: Currently looking at Growth at an investments startup called smallcase, I've worked in financial markets for more than 7 years now - including stints at Goldman Sachs (operations), the hedge fund D.E. Shaw & Co (research), and Willis Towers Watson (advisory). I've also done internships at Deutsche Bank (private banking) and Business Standard (business journalism). That aside, I'm a CFA charterholder with an MSc. in Financial Economics from the University of Oxford and a gold medal in B.A. Economics from Loyola College in Chennai. And oh, I've been investing for more than 10 years now :)
