Mr. R.K. Chandrasekhar (RKC to his friends), is not your typical money manager or professional investor, but one amongst us retail investors whom I first met in 2011. Our bond has grown stronger since then, especially with RKC opening up his investment life in front of the Safal Niveshak tribe over the years, via his comments and feedback on my posts.
RKC started investing when I was born, so it’s quite a lot of years that he has been there, seen that. As a formal introduction, he is 67 years old and is an MS (O.R) from Case Western Reserve University and BSc (Mathematics) from Loyola College, Chennai. He is now retired from work after winding down his placement business in 2013.
In this interview, RKC talks about his long investment experience, his evolution as an investor, key lessons learned, his investment process, and how he tries to minimize decision making mistakes.
