Hi. I’m Vik Shukla.
I’m an investor, writer and educator. My mission is to help investors build their mental toolbox. Whatever I write here and on Twitter is aimed at helping you make better financial decisions.
Before launching this little project, I was a contributor at the US-based value investing website ValueWalk for 8 years. I spent most of my time researching, reading, and writing about business, finance, and technology.
My work has also appeared on The Motley Fool, Yahoo! Finance, Seeking Alpha, InvestorPlace, InsiderMonkey, and many other reputed financial websites.
I’m not a financial planner, SEBI-registered investment advisor, or mutual fund distributor.
Here is how my work will help you
Even though I’ve spent almost a decade writing about finance and investing my own money, I don’t have all the answers. I’m learning and sharing with you what I find useful and interesting. I cover ideas and topics like…
- How to improve your thinking to make better financial decisions
- How to think about risk and rewards
- How the financial markets work
- How your behavior affects long-term returns
- How to manage your finances to create long-term wealth
- And much more
I don’t offer stock recommendations. You’ll never see me recommending stocks or discussing which stocks to buy and which ones to sell. Instead, I focus on sharing ideas and lessons that will help you decide on your own how to invest wisely. Nobody understands your goals and financial responsibilities better than you.
