"Be brave. Take risks. Nothing can substitute experience."

Those words of Paulo Coelho aptly summarizes Shyam's journey. Tossing up between studying economics and engineering, he took on the second. After completing engineering, his earlier calling returned. The hunger and curiosity of economics and business took over. The natural progression led to investing. In 2003, he started Smartvalue Equisearch private limited as an investment strategy firm. Over the next eight years, he built a professional research and strategy firm with domain expertise in the equity and mutual fund research, investment strategy, and investment analytics. The firm is poised to break new ground with ithought, its wealth management division. He also co-founded Moneywise consulting Private Limited in 2007, a niche equity strategy firm with a focus on portfolio construction and risk management.
