Founder & Portfolio Manager

Porinju Veliyath

Acclaimed Value Investor & Passionate Indian

Porinju Veliyath is among the most successful investors in Indian equity markets. He is widely acknowledged as one of the eminent, inspiring, and revered faces of the capital markets. As the founder of Equity Intelligence, he has been instrumental in generating immense wealth for his investors for over two decades. Before founding EQ, he had an illustrious professional career for a decade with two of the most respected financial services firms, Kotak Securities and Parag Parikh Financial Services.

Over time, Mr. Veliyath has grown to be one of the prominent exponents of value investing principles in the Indian markets. Mainstream media call him “small cap czar” and millions on social media follow him closely to learn and get inspired. He relishes seeking deep “value” in a “price” crazy market, sitting in the quietude of Kochi & serenity of his farm. He attributes his success to the enduring principles of value investing philosophy and continues to be an ardent practitioner.

Besides investing, he is passionate about farming and supports several philanthropic activities. He has also been a long-standing director with the Arya Vaidya Pharmacy, a pre-eminent institution of Ayurveda. Ultimately, he is a passionate Indian who has immense faith and conviction in the rising prosperity of the nation and is eager to be part of it.
