Kishan and Shyam have the same philosophy of systematic investing and decided to start Freefloat to give the everyday investor the same edge that they found when they moved away from discretion-based investing.
Kishan Murjani Nair
Kishan started investing in his late teens investing his personal and family funds using a value-based discretionary style but converted to a systematic approach to protect from biases. He has over ten years of experience in investing based on quantitative strategies. He worked in a family office for seven years before starting his firm - Flameback Capital. He is also a CFA Charterholder.
Shyam has over 15 years of experience in investment management, analysis, and algorithmic trading. He worked at Merrill Lynch as a trader on their ABS CDS desk in New York. With the experience of quant investing, he built tools specific to the Indian market to help manage his investments better and ended up establishing StockViz to bring those tools to a broader investor base.
