In my three decades of experience in the investment and trading circuit, I have witnessed the convergence of bearish markets and slowdowns on numerous occasions. The most important and valuable lesson I learned was that it is both plausible and feasible to overcome a bear market with the right knowledge to make timely and informed decisions. I am humbled to share my lessons with an esteemed audience of both new and experienced investors, partnering with an organization whose global mission is to empower retail investors.

Stocktwits’ global mission is to reshape the future of investing and provide a platform for hosting the global conversation for investors and traders about assets, styles and experience levels. With this unique initiative, Stocktwits wanted to leverage Shankar Sharma’s investment experience to help and inform the next generation of investors.

India plans from Stocktwits: the way forward

The launch of Stocktwits in India matches the growth of the retail investment landscape across the country, with the participation of Tier II and III cities – including new investors under the age of 25 – driving this growth. With an abundance of financial market information readily accessible to consumers today, it is critical for investors to have access to communities to make more informed investment decisions.

Investing in all types of asset classes is now widely accessible in India. So it’s important to help retail investors hone their skills and make better investment decisions. We also believe that investing is best learned through the mentorship model and are delighted to partner with Shankar Sharma, an investment veteran who needs no introduction and clearly understands market cycles. We are excited to provide Shankar Sharma with a platform to share his extensive experience with the next generation of investors in India and help them prepare for the next bull market.
