About Us

Our Values, experience and Team

Who are we

Vivekam is a product-driven advisory firm with its head-quarters located in Hyderabad, India. We were set up in 2010 with the purpose to bridge the gap between financial information and financial decision making

All the products on Vivekam’s platform have been tested rigorously over more than ten years of financial data and the results have been tabulated for any interested party to verify.

The Need

Safety and rate of returns are the two variables we consider for investment in fixed income avenues. When it comes to variable income investment avenues like stocks and mutual funds, the sources of information are far too many and the flow is continuous.

How to source, what to consider, what to ignore and the weight to be given to each piece of information appear very complex for common man.

Data Driven

We process data all the way from the year 2000. All of our products are back tested and validated to test effeciency.

Rule based

All of our products are strictly rule based and logic is driven by these triggers. Discipline is key in investments.

Skin in the game

Our team subscribes to the same products our clients do. We are that confident of our products.

Ethical & Transparent

More than 40 years of real experienc within the investing space. Our longevity is the biggest testament to our values.

Our core philosophy

Investment is a science not an art

Vivekam collects all relevant information, processes, tabulates and presents fair values for most stocks in India. Vivekam also short lists stocks that reported better working results in latest concluded trailing twelve month period.

Vivekam’s study of price behaviour of 5,000 companies over 12 years(48 quarters), has proven that 87% of undervalued growth stocks appreciated by more than 10% in next three months.
