VALUEx India 24. November 2011 Rahul value investing (0) VALUEx India held in Mumbai between 7th and 9th November was a grand success. Thanks to everyone who participated. VALUEx is based on the concept of peer to peer learning and ideas worth sharing. VALUEx India itself was based on an idea I received from my good friend Guy Spier. Guy explained to me the power of open source and non-solicitation. I was pleasantly surprised by the powerful impact of the core principles of VALUEx. Almost everyone who attended was pleasantly surprised by the impact the conference made. The participant sharing session was a bigger success that I could have ever imagined. We had some great speakers with tremendous insights. Example, one of the speakers, Mr.Ashok Wadhwa, Group CEO of Ambit Corp, highlighted that the key attribute that should be investigated by an investor researching a company is the Loans and Advances account under current assets in the balance sheet of an Indian company. Mr.Vallabh Bhanshali, Chairman of Enam Financial Consultants, explained that India has a huge governance deficit. He explained that at the end of the day, governance is all we have as individuals, companies or countries. He said that investing success will be determined by the level of governance one can find. Our goal is to make the VALUEx India website a powerful resource for open source value investing in India. We will put up pictures and videos from the conference on the site as well as provide value investing resources on the Value Investing in India section of the site. If you know of value investing in India resources that might be useful to others, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will put it up on the website.
