Our Team



Samnidhy is a firm I always aspired to be in, given my interests were in line with its vision. Thereafter, began a journey of learning and exploring many aspects of the stock market, I never knew existed. There were many training sessions offered by our seniors, where we were taught sector analysis, followed by stock picking in that sector based on the performance. We were also taught technical analysis, that is not a part of the PGDM curriculum, adding to one of the many incentives Samnidhy has to offer.

Being part of the review team and handling the IT sector has been a wonderful experience helping me learn a lot about the sector. I am kept updated about the happenings in the other sectors as well through the weekly reports published by my teammates. It has been an enriching experience so far and expect it to be the same in the days to come.

“Samnidhy is one of the many valuable things TAPMI has to offer for me. Stock trading and Investment was always an interest for me. I started personal trading about 4 years ago and have seen my own share of ups and downs. This propelled me to join Samnidhy wherein I worked as an analyst [FMCG Sector] and enhanced the understanding of capital markets from a technical stand point. Working in Samnidhy is a great opportunity and helped me excel in my technicalities.

One thing I love about Samnidhy is that, it being a student managed investment fund- has given us that autonomy which was very useful in understanding and analysing the stocks freely.

I cherish my association with Samnidhy and believe that the learning I have gained here will be value added to my career in the long run. “
