Tejas KhodayCo-Founder & CEO at FYERS
At age 16, Tejas was hooked to the stock markets when accidentally stumbling upon it on television. Ever since he has been a passionate creature of the markets, professional trading, investing and decoding the inside world of finance. At the age of 18 he started trading and after experiencing the complacency of traditional brokerages in India, he embarked upon a journey to solve the problems faced by traders and investors.
After completing his post-graduation in Finance and CFA Level 1, he was tired of the textbook theories and decided to do something in real life. He knew that the platforms in India had a long way to go and was determined to take the lead. In 2015, Fyers was formed as a crusade to change the way stock investments are made in the country. As a technology-focused brokerage firm, its goal is to transform the trading/investment landscape for everyone. To encourage retail participation in the Indian stock markets, there is no brokerage for investments at FYERS.
Apart from trading and investing, Tejas loves playing chess and he is active on Social Media interacting with the customers; he discusses various regulatory issues and shares useful information on markets. He is also regularly seen in various print and online media like The Economic Time, Business Standard, Money Control and more providing his valuable inputs.
