A law graduate who found his interest in equity back in the 90s and now has a portfolio of around 1300 crore. 


Belonging from a lower-middle-class family often lead to less exposure to the world, so was Porinju who came from a small village named Chalakudy in Kerala.

Keep it simple
                             Don’t have any hard and fast rules while picking stocks. Avoid implementing difficult analysis technique taught by frauds.

Buy small company with high-quality business
                              Avoid investing in great companies with the clean balance sheet, honest management and clear business visibility, since “bank FD’s would beat your portfolio returns”.
