Aditya currently works as an Analyst at Moody’s Analytics, Bangalore. His story is the Indian story – values from the heartland, a traditional upbringing in a joint family, hard work and education as the means of getting ahead.

After getting a Bachelor’s degree in Accounting & Finance from St. Xavier’s College (Kolkata), he moved to Chennai and relentlessly pursued his dream of becoming a District Collector (IAS). He offered his blood, sweat and tears to his dream. But after 3 years of endeavor, he realized that destiny had a different plan for him. He moved on, shifted his base to Bangalore and entered into the fascinating world of equities.

Prior to Moody’s Analytics, he has worked in Ernst & Young, William O’Neil India and Stewart and Mackertich- a front end wealth management firm. 

Apart from writing research reports, Aditya also teaches the basics of economics at ‘The Floating School’

Read his views on Indian Equities: Outlook Business Magazine, MoneyControl, Zee business, Nikkei Asian Review, Nikkei Asian Review.

He takes deep interest in noticing the usually overlooked smaller aspects of everyday living. Human interactions, scintillating conversations, stimulating documentaries and Pankaj Udhas’s gazals are a few things that he is passionate about. 

If there is a really interesting quote that summarizes who he is and what he believes in, it would be:

“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence,
Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent,
Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb,
Degrees and certificates will not; the world is full of educated derelicts,
Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent,
The slogan “Press On!” has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”

~ Calvin Coolidge, 30th President of the U.S.
