About Us

Our Story

Niveshaay was born with the objective of providing a viable alternative to the highly Commission-Oriented, fixed fee generating finance industry. A decade ago, two young professionals started a small advisory for few friends & family and started managing their money with just a simple expectation of getting a share in the returns, rather than a fat fixed fee. The quality of their work spread rapidly via word of mouth and quickly, that motivated them to give birth to his enterprise which we now call Niveshaay, with a state of art Investments Research Lab with 20+ professionals.

We always wanted to bring portfolio approach to investment in India, where the financial planning of households is still done by the 'Chachas' and the 'Bhaiyas'. We wanted to break this tradition of taking investment decisions based on advice of novice relatives and friends and make investors understand the power of Professional Investments Advisory. And also changing the structure of organized industry, who will focus on Commission Oriented products to Profit Sharing Oriented admire for a “win- win” strategy for our clients.

Niveshaay is a SEBI Registered boutique Investment Advisory Firm with a Dedicated Research Team specialising in Equity Portfolio Advisory. Our expertise lies in linking the macro economic indicators to the business model of mid-market companies and finding out companies which have potential to double their sales or profitability in a period of 3-5 years.

Our Philosophy

"We focus on emerging trends and businesses which are scalable and can generate higher ROE for long period of time and is also the best hedge against all types of financial volatilities."

Our Focus

In the long run, small and midcap companies prove to be a better investment opportunity because:
  • No or minimal institutional holdings
