Value Investing Live: Dr. Ashok Patel

1/26/2022, 1:00:00 PM Central Time (US and Canada)

Dr. Ashok Patel, CEO and Chief Investment Officer of Pavaki Capital

Ashok is a board-certified allergist. He underwent his fellowship training in allergy immunology at the prestigious National Jewish Health. A patient's mother once called him an "angel" and his YouTube channel is full of numerous patient testimonials. However, Ashok wants to improve both health and wealth.

When he received his first paycheck, he started investing. Six years ago he decided to manage his portfolio actively, like a family office, and the returns amazed him. With the knowledge he gained he opened a hedge fund. Since then, Ashok has passed his Series 65 exam and is actively preparing for a CFA certification.
