People Who Created Wealth "Do Things That Others Don’t"

“I, Ravi Chaudhari, promise to make one billion Indians financially literate. The journey has just started, but I know we will make it happen.”

Before you enter the website, I want you to do something very simple that will help you fully benefit from the message in this site. I want you to write down what has been written below and follow it. Saraswati, Wealth, Happiness and Knowledge grow only when we share them. It might not seem logical at first, but trust me, it will do wonders.

I, (your name), promise to share what I learn in this site with at least ten people because people who are financially literate are Happier, Healthier and Wealthier!

Please Write It Here In Your Own Handwriting:

New to Official Asset? Start Here...

Hi! My name is Ravi Chaudhari, and I am the founder of Official Asset. I feel happy to see you here! Below you’ll find information that will make it easier for you to explore this blog.


What Official Asset Is?

Official Asset is a movement to help you, the small investor, become intelligent, independent, and successful in your stock market investment decisions. If you are looking for ways and tools to develop the right thinking, mindset, and process that is required for long-term investment success, this is the place for you.


What Official Asset is Not?

Official Asset is meant for those who are interested in value investing which in effect is the ‘slow’ (but sensible) way of getting rich through stock markets. So, if you are interested in ‘hot tips’ or advice on ‘getting rich quick’, we would suggest you to not waste your precious time here. We hate to sound unfriendly here.

There is absolutely nothing on this website for people interested in the fast route to make money from the stock markets. There never will be! But if you ever give up the futile search for the next quick money-making stock tips, come back here. We’ll leave the lights on for you.

By the way, you may want to read Official Asset no-nonsense disclosure statement.

We Appreciate You!

I just wanted to finish by saying that I are here for YOU, not only as a guide while you begin or continue your investing journey but also as a friend.

I do my best to respond to all emails (it’s getting tougher as this blog gains in popularity, but I will always do my best to respond, though I may get late sometimes). And I don’t hold myself above anybody. I’m not special; I like to work hard and help others.

Contact me at ravi(at)officialasset(dot)in to let me know what you think about this initiative, what are your experiences, if you have any suggestions, or for anything else related to knowing yourself and growing! I love reading emails sent by readers (thought I often get late in replying), so drop me a line.

Thank you so much for your support, and all the best in your journey of becoming a smart manager and allocator of your hard-earned money.

With respect,
Ravi
