This is the third episode of The Knowledge Project, my podcast aimed at acquiring wisdom through interviews with key luminaries from across the globe to gain insights into how they think, live, and connect ideas. Together we’ll explore: Decision Making, Leadership, and Innovation. Along the way we’ll explore the questions of life and what it means to live a good life.
In this episode of The Knowledge Project, recorded live in New York, I have on the show one of my favourite people: Sanjay Bakshi.
Sanjay is one of India’s best-recognised finance professors. He teaches a course entitled Behavioural Finance and Business Valuation at the Management Development Institute. And while he probably doesn’t want me to mention this, not only is he a teacher; he is also a practitioner. He is one of the most successful investors you will ever come across.
In this interview, we talk about a host of things, including why he prefers to read on a Kindle; how he incorporates multi-disciplinary thinking and mental models into both his investment decisions and life decisions; and how his approach to investing has changed over time.
