Ricky's knowledge and understanding of financial markets has always impressed me, both from a technical and fundamental perspective. It is therefore no surprise that his trading track record is so outstanding and I'd trust him with my money any day.

Ravi Nursey, Head of Corporate Sales, America at ANZ; ex Director at Dresdner Bank AG

 

 

I selected Ricky out of a batch of 50 MBA graduates to join the ANZ Grindlays Treasury team handling FX Spot, Swaps &Depos in 1991. He was a keen enthusiastic trader and was soon adept at trading both spots & swaps. He loved the challenge of figuring out where markets were headed, and he was an integral part of the team that built the institutional market making profile of Grindlays as one of the Top 2 banks in India. Ricky excelled at any task given to him; loves trading; and most importantly is an excellent team player. He will go out of his way to help his colleagues and was always a loyal and reliable person. I would feel very safe as far as investing money with him is concerned, and have no doubt that any portfolio under his direct supervision will consistently outperform.

A very strong extrovert personality, Ricky soon graduated into a young currency and money markets trader in Mumbai in the market of the early nineties. He displayed not only strong market making skills with consistent trading revenues, but at the same time a balanced focus on stop loss management and building up profits in a disciplined manner.

He has excelled in all companies he worked in or headed and ONE of the most important attribute that makes him special is he is passionate about everything he does. The success he has achieved relentlessly over the years , with his go getter attitude in tow , is also because he has led from the front with clear vision and conviction.
