“Great creators don’t necessarily have the deepest expertise but rather seek out the broadest perspectives.” – Adam Grant.
Over the years, I have had numerous interactions with Sunil. Each interaction has been ‘Hatke’ and a reminder of why the moniker of MisterBond, as he is popularly known in the mutual fund industry, suits him very well. Today, as I write this Foreword for Sunil’s latest book, Think Hatke, I recall all my interactions with him. He is someone whom I have known to be a change-maker, a person who is not afraid to innovate and apply logical solutions to bring about positive change in the industry. From suggesting rolling returns as the go to measure of a fund’s performance to spreading awareness on risk in investments and asset class valuations, Sunil’s voice has always been one of the loudest and the strongest.
He has had an interesting journey from an investor advisor to a mentor and now a successful entrepreneur. The wisdom amassed along the way has been nicely woven into his previous two books “Make Your Destination a Journey to Remember – Through Financial Planning” and “Pearls of Financial Wisdom”. While the former serves as an easy guide for investors to manoeuvre their way through the complex world of financial planning and investments, the latter is considered as the book of choice for anyone who is in the mutual fund business.
I have no doubt that his latest endeavours, i.e., his third book on investing and wealth creation, is going to hit the ball out of the park. What really drew me to the book was the chapter on ‘Unlearn to Relearn’. Considering the changing investment and economic landscape, the chapter provides enough food for thought on the need to learn, unlearn, and relearn to constantly innovate and stay ahead of the curve. I also like Sunil’s use of real-life learnings which make the investment advice shared more relatable and thus easier to embrace.
Through this book, Sunil has attempted to take his readers on an enriching journey by sharing his experiences and his learnings over the past 36 years as a student and mentor of finance and investments. So please go ahead, pick up the book, and treat yourself with valuable insights into the vast wisdom of Sunil Jhaveri (aka MisterBond).
I wish Sunil all the best and a grand success for his book – THINK HATKE.
