I have received MBA in Corporate finance form Dowling College, NY. I discovered my passion for financial analysis first in Global investment and portfolio management class at the university. I stood first in the class in terms of return on portfolio which was a virtual equity investment simulation. Post university i joined Matrix USA LLC, NY as Financial Analyst. It research methodologies were based on EVA analysis which helped us find the "true" intrinsic value of the firm. The firm used to publish research reports and stood #1 in over 900 companies in BARR rankings, 2008. I was a senior member next to the head analyst which oversaw long/short fund. Currently i have just moved to India and managing our family business which involves speciality plastic films. We have a staff of over 150 people. I handle finance and production for the company. Even while doing this, my previous profession of finance has turned in to my passion. I manage our family money and money for few friends and family in SMAs. My research criteria involves EV/EBITDA multiples, EVA and DEBT analysis which makes more sense to a businessmen because ultimately his interest is to turn investment into profit!
