My Investing Story

My first brush with the stock market happened way back in ’95 when I had some savings from my recent 1.5 years of overseas work. Based on my friend’s advise, I had bought some shares of “bluechip” company – Tata Steel. To my bad luck the market did not realize that I had bought the share, because the share continued to fall for the next 1 year. Before I knew, it had lost half of its’ value.
But I did not loose heart and wanted to learn more about stock market. Hence I started reading Economic Times on a daily basis and started tracking the prices of several shares. I did not have any understanding of the basics of investing in those days. I had no idea why share prices rise and fall. I started to buy some more shares based on news articles. I had purchased SAIL, Silverline, Satyam Computers, DSQ etc....

Sriram Saroop, Product Manager at Google

I had a great experience working with Sriram Jayaraman and would highly recommend him as a fee-only financial planner. Sriram is humble, knowledgeable, analytical and patiently answers any queries. He’s always willing to discuss options and backs his recommendations with data and analysis. Though I had a reasonable understanding of goal based financial planning, I wanted an expert to review my current financial state and validate / suggest changes to my plan. Sriram did a thorough analysis of various options, suggested key changes and explained why these are needed.

Not just a good advisor, Sriram is an amazing person to talk to. And for me that matters a lot. First time I spoke to him over phone and I made my decision to sign up immediately. Last few months with him have been satisfactory professionally. Sriram is quite approachable and responds well. He is open to new ideas and change. I am fully confident of fee only model being the best model for the client’s long term financial health.
