Varinder Bansal has spent the last 15 years in Mumbai, learning from people across the spectrum, some of whom are his mentors, and applying his strong fundamental skills and hard-nosed number crunching and analytical skills to identify investment ideas. His strength in years of experience lies in identifying not-so-fashionable stock ideas. Most of these ideas have had a bedrock of strong fundamentals, superior balance sheets, and boasted of high-quality promoters. He has coupled this approach with the strong feedback mechanism, which is effective due to my deep-rooted connections with equity-market veterans and leaders of corporate India.
He has founded Omkara Capital Private Limited with the aim of creating an equitable wealth creation opportunity for retail investors. This will be backed by only & only data. Before Omkara, he was a fund manager at Pantomath where he & his team were ahead in identifying API themes. Before that, he worked as Corporate Editor and Head of Research at CNBC TV-18.
