He has been in the Indian stock markets since 1996. Alok is passionate about building rule based investing model portfolios to generate superior returns with lesser efforts.
Alok’s journey in the markets started with his setting up one of the first National Stock Exchange corporate membership in New Delhi in 1996. For two decades, he serviced institutional, corporate, H.N.I. and thousands of retail clients and along the way developed a keen sense for systematic rule based investing systems and technical trading. On completing twenty years of the business in 2016, Alok decided to roll out the same strategies that he was running for his own money on for others which led to the creation of these DIY model based portfolios under the banner of Weekendinvesting that required only 2 minute weekly intervention by the users.
In 2018, Alok partnered with the fintech platform Smallcase.com to be their first SEBI registered partner manager to offer curated portfolios on their platform. Weekendinvesting since then has emerged as one of the largest manager for smallcases over the last many years serving tens of thousands of users. The weekendinvesting products are also available now on IIFL and Angel broking platforms besides dozens of other broker platforms. In 2021, Weekendinvesting became a part of Weekendinvesting Analytics P Limited, a SEBI registered corporate research analyst company.
Alok’s vision to to keep Weekendinvesting a niche business with a sharp focus on customer delight. The weekendinvesting is a small but efficient team that is dedicated to this cause.
