"How I Built a 500+ Employee Organization with a Team of JustSixPeople"- with Rohit Gadia
As a trading expert, my job is to advice people in trading market. When I was in my college, my desire was to learn trading in stocks started. At that time, while I was still a student, I had no capital to invest in stocks. With fair pocket money and recent credit card holder, I started thinking to make some small investment in my trading account. Initially I used to pay my bills through my credit card but soon I started helping my friends to pay their bills and later on they used to pay back by cash. A wonderful thought came to me and then I thought to leverage the 45 days worth of interest-free period which was extended by my credit card companies.I used the cash money to invest in stocks and earned profit from it and managed to return the loan amount within the designated time frame. I was successful with my small initial attempts and soon I acquired a second card and a substantial profit thereafter. In the meantime, I also advised my friends about investing in stocks and they too got benefited. This was the time when I got my big idea to start advising people in trading by opening up a financial market research and consulting firm.
The only one and obvious hurdle I could see was the risk of losing money in stock market. And this was quite apparent when we started our business, sometimes we were making loss but in most of the instances our idea worked. Then we thought to focus on our core idea, to enhance our skills to develop technical analytical skills in trading and create an organized trading industry in India.
Being a standalone research firm with specialists and research experts, the risk was very low and our Research > Analysis > Opinion is unbiased. People started intraday trading in stocks and our advices were benefiting them. The company since its inception has been growing and now it has 500+ employees as its strength and five operating centers in India and abroad.
With regard to the revenue model of our company, the customers pay a monthly subscription fee of Rs. 5,000 – Rs. 25,000, depending on the service opted for. But this is just the tip of the iceberg. With about 11 million demat account holders and one million daily active traders in the country; the potential to growth is huge, especially since the idea of professional trading is growing too and here we want to add huge value to industry and our customers in organized trading.
Now our company, CapitalVia Global Research Limited is a full-fledged standalone financial markets research and advisory Company which basically provides its opinion for Stocks- Cash and F&O traded in NSE & BSE, commodities including bullions, metals and agro-commodities traded in MCX, NCDEX and Currency markets as well.
The company’s core focus is on technical analysis that provides real time financial markets recommendation on stocks and commodities with real time data and highly sophisticated technology enabled delivery platform with real time support to over 2,500 full-time customers for intra-day and short term trading.
We now provide 24x7 support, to discuss market trends, trading and also advice customers through SMS/Phone Calls, Online and multiple digital platform before, after and during trading hours. The research team also carries out fundamental research related to the economy, industry, markets and companies.
In this way I propagated the awareness of Professional trading and want to create an Industry which doesn’t have a concrete existence yet, so the journey has been started.
