Vijay Kedia has been an inspiration to many. He has been involved in the market since the age of 19! Here is a glimpse of his success story as an Indian investor trader!

Introduction

Success stories are often accompanied by ambition, dedication and sincerity interspersed with vision to grasp the big picture. It isn’t unheard of for successful individuals to begin their careers at a young age. After all, famed cricket player Sachin Tendulkar and India’s missile man, Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam each began their professional journeys at a young age. In the same vein, Vijay Kedia entered the world of trading at the young age of 19 and made a career out of it.

Read on to learn more about the trajectory of his career.

A Brief Overview of Vijay Kedia’s Life

Dr. Vijay Kishanlal Kedia is presently recognized as one of the country’s most prominent investors who has made a name for himself in the realm of trading. Serving as the founder and CEO of Kedia Securities Pvt. Ltd., he has often been called the ‘market master.’

An investing genius today, Dr. Vijay Kedia grew up in a family whose profession was stock-broking. By the age of 14, Kedia recognized that he was passionate about the markets and began trading so that he could support his family.

Owing to the fact that he had the aptitude for investing and trading he was able to earn vast sums in limited time frames.

2016 was a memorable year for Kedia as he was awarded the ‘Doctorate Degree for Excellence’ under the field of management. 2016 also witnessed him listed #13 on the Business World list of the country’s most successful investors.

In 2017, Money Life Advisory started a microsite called Ask Vijay Kedia which saw him give a number of key management strategies. London Business School along with TEDx and a number of global platforms have had him speak up about the same.

Investment Strategies Employed by Vijay Kedia

The primary strategy employed by Dr. Vijay Kedia to each of his investments goes by the acronym SMILE. This acronym is short for small in size, medium in experience, large in aspiration and extra-large in terms of market potential. This also happens to be the only strategy Dr. Kedia has ever endorsed.

He has also stated that it is key to be on the lookout for companies that have good management. Good and honest management interspersed with the product sought to be grown should be considered with whether outperformance with competition is a possibility. Understanding where the company falls in the broader economy is equally important. By investing in companies that boast such potential for a period of 10 to 15 years, potential profits drawn can be significant.

Furthermore, he encourages investors to bet big and not be dissuaded by rough times. Apart from luck, he is also under the impression that investments, knowledge, patience and courage play a key role in the stock markets.

Dr. Kedia has followed his own advice and has remained fully invested in each of his holdings for the past 30 years. His portfolio, which is impressive, has been looked at below.

Things to Learn from Vijay Kedia

When examining Vijay Kedia’s investment portfolio, the following facts become pertinent.

It is prudent to invest for long time frames

Dr. Kedia is under the firm impression that long term investments have the most potential. Companies require time to develop and expand. Long-term investing is better protected against market volatility.

Good management is vital

It is important to invest in companies that value transparent management. Such companies are made up of a number of facets and it is important to understand each of these prior to investing in the company. Qualitative factors of a company must be considered as per Dr. Kedia’s suggestions.

Don’t invest to earn a livelihood

Dr. Kedia believes that the stock market should not be viewed as a livelihood. Investors should always have a reliable, alternative source of income. Market changes can be resisted such that you can become an active trader.

Several investors have invested large sums of money in the hopes of accruing more money without being employed or running a business. This has the potential to be detrimental and create losses and debts.

Balance is Key

Being in possession of an equalized approach is important. Being extremely optimistic or harshly critical is not recommended. Investing doesn’t have to be stressful. Instead it can be simple, provided you are confident.
