From August 2016, I started managing Investment Portfolios for my NRI Clients including Equity, Mutual Funds, ULIPs and Currency. From 2017, I started focusing mainly on Equity Portfolio for Companies listed on NSE and BSE.
In March 2018, I registered Internet Domain www.equityconfidence.com and paid registration charges for a Private Limited Company "Equity Confidence" through ClearTax. Many Chartered Accountants were confused regarding the Memorandum of Association (MOA) of my business. My business model was first of its kind and has never been implemented anywhere. They were not sure whether my Company would fall into which category - Shop Establishment or a Private Limited Company. Another challenge which came up was in which taxation (GST) bracket my company will fall into. And the last reason, there were some unforeseen unethical challenges (corruption/bribery) in formation/registration of the Company for which I took a stand and won't do anything which is illegal. I dropped my plan eventually and continued to work as an Independent Financial Consultant. I have always been ethical in my decisions, instead of going into legal complications with SEBI.
From January 2019, I started working for my database and business strategy website "Equity Confidence". The entire website was revamped in November 2019. Please visit www.equityconfidence.com for more details. The topics covered on the website are as follows: 2020 Global Recession (2020 Recession), Stock Markets in December 2019 (Thank You Next and Contradiction), Tourism/Airlines, Corporate Education, Why Cash and News.

In the same month, I also researched about my domain name "Equity Confidence" which was registered for my Company. Through various domain name appraisal tools and SEO, it was valued between $25,000 USD onwards. I got an offer from someone through LinkedIn who is a well known Domain Broker (who has been associated with domain names sales in millions of dollars). I decided to work on Business plans instead of going into Domain Name Business.

Further, Refinitiv was acquired by London Stock Exchange (LSE) and Hong Kong Exchange expressed interest to acquire LSE.
