Fall is temporary, up is permanent” quips the Guru of wealth creation, Raamdeo Agarwal

 “It is not necessary to do extraordinary things to get extraordinary results” Raamdeo Ramgopal Agarwal.

An ordinary man with a humble background, brought up in a village in Chattisgarh, who moved to Mumbai to become a Chartered Accountant, has transformed into an extraordinary celebrity stock market investor. Cofounded a small sub broking firm in 1987 with Motilal Oswal, Raamdeo Agarwal has created an enviable empire that enjoys an Iconic Status in the Indian investor fraternity.

His investment philosophy is largely inspired by Warren Buffet, whom he lovingly addresses as his guru. 

Buffet’s annual letters to the Berkshire Hathway shareholders hold a biblical status in Agarwal’s investment philosophy, which he ardently reads till date.

He calls his investment philosophy QGLP – Quality, Growth, Longevity, at a reasonable Price. Recently, he has authored a book by the same name - The QGLP Checklist – 25 questions, 25 frameworks”. The book, marked the 25th year of the Motilal Oswal Annual Wealth Creation Study, which Agrawal had himself been authoring since 1996.

How the seasoned investor interprets recent corrections?

Ramdeo Agarwal is unperturbed by the recent corrections in the market. He feels the correction is a part of a classic bull market. In the overheated bull market, where each trading day witnesses some stocks rallying to a 52-week high, the anxiety level of market participants on edge of the seat was all set to experience a correction. He firmly believes in the rolling motion of market cycles, corrections or mini crashes are possible but the bigger picture is that market has the power of turning 4x or even more. It has done it in the past and is capable of repeating in the future. 

In such jittery times, his investment philosophy can definitely guide the naïve investors on the stock markets- 

“Fall is temporary, up is permanent” quips the Guru of wealth creation.

“Concentrate investments in a few stocks and have the fortitude to hold through price fluctuations” a quote from Wealth Creation Thoughts.
