कर्मण्येवाधिकारस्ते मा फलेषु कदाचन।
मा कर्मफलहेतुर्भूर्मा ते सङ्गोऽस्त्वकर्मणि॥
You have a right to perform your prescribed duties, but you are not entitled to the fruits of your actions. Never consider yourself to be the cause of the results of your activities, nor be attached to inaction.
– Bhagvad Geeta (2.47)
Welcome to Karmanye Capital!
Our approach towards investing is what Geeta prescribes. Focus on the work and the process, rather than the result. The result will take care of itself, if the process is right.
We strive to improve our learning and investing process constantly so that we can identify and avoid the pitfalls on our investing journey. We believe that avoiding the pitfalls is a major part of the journey of climbing the mountain.
We collaborate on our stock ideas and talk to each other about how to analyse different industries and companies before landing upon an investable candidate.
Vineet has been working in the financial markets since 2006 and has nearly 12 years of investing experience. His journey started with doing arbitrage & options trading, but stopped when the field became competitive post 2008. The first investment was made in late 2007 just before the financial crisis of 2008. It is the experience of losing money in 2008 that pushed him explore history of investing and successful investors. He believes a lot of knowledge is available on successful investing and the one who is able to implement even a little of that knowledge, unemotionally, will be reasonably successful.
Vineet is a Chartered Accountant and Bachelor in Commerce ( Hons.) by education.
