"I travel across the country to hunt down small caps with
explosive profit potential"

Hidden Treasure

Phase One Alert

Richa Agarwal is the editor of two extremely successful services in the small cap space - Hidden Treasure and Phase One Alert.

After getting her MBA in Finance from Symbiosis International University in Pune, Richa went to work for HSBC group (HSBC is the largest bank in Europe).

Though based in India, Richa was tasked with providing analysis for Europe based companies.

But she always questioned whether she could provide effective analysis of a company from 7,000km away...

This led her to Equitymaster, where, as a Research Analyst, she could focus solely on Indian companies. It also let Richa deploy her favorite investment strategy...

Boots on the ground research.

While most stock analysts do all their research from a stuffy office, Richa goes the extra mile...

She's travelled hundreds of thousands of kilometres in search of new investment ideas for Equitymaster subscribers.

One week, you might find her in Bangalore, interviewing the management team of a small IT startup...

And the next, she'll be on the factory floor of a cotton mill in Delhi.

This is the kind of due diligence that's led Hidden Treasure , Equitymaster's small cap recommendation service, to some spectacular recommendations for its subscribers.

Some of Hidden Treasure's superhits are i :

  • 7,321% in 9 years and 2 months with Page Industries
  • 2,421% in 8 years with e-Clerx Services
  • 1,058% in 6 years and 11 months with Balkrishna industries

When not traveling for work, Richa travels for adventure. When not 'scuttlebutting' companies for her research, she immerses herself in reading fiction.
