He has been described by the Economic Times as a "market master".[10] In 2016 Vijay Kedia was conferred with a Doctorate degree for Excellence in The Field of Management.


Kedia was born into a Marwadi family, a family of stockbrokers.[11] He realised his passion for stock market when he was 14. And he joined stock market when he turned 19. He joined stock market not only because of his passion but because of compulsion when his father passed away. To run the family he got into the family business of trading and stock broking. Kedia never liked broking thus left his family’s stock-broking business after three years and started doing his own trading without any success. After few years he left Kolkata and came to Mumbai to try his luck. .[12][13] In 2004 and 2005 he identified and invested in three such shares (Atul auto, Aegis logistics, Cera sanitaryware) which appreciated more than 100 times in next 10 to 12 years. In early 2012, he correctly predicted that India was at the beginning of a structural bull run.[14] In 2016 Kedia was featured at #13 in Business World list of Successful Investors In India [15] In 2017 "MoneyLife Advisory" launched an "Ask Vijay Kedia microsite [16] In 2017 Vijay Kedia's portfolio stocks rose up to 170%.[17] In 2018, He was invited to speak at London Business School.[18] In November 2018, he was invited to speak at TEDx.[19] In December 2018 Kedias interview was featured in the Masterclass with super investors book along with other noteworthy Indian Investors [20]

Investment Strategy[edit]

Kedia strictly adheres to SMILE as a principle in investing; which translates into Small in size, Medium in experience, Large in aspiration and Extra-large in market potential.[21] On his investment strategy, Kedia said: "One should scout for companies which have good management... Find a very good management, a very honest management and see the product in which the management is going to grow, going to outperform its peers and the economy... invest in those companies for the next 10-15 years, and you cannot go wrong." [22] Bet big and ride through tough times is his advice [23] While luck plays a big part in stock market investments, knowledge, courage and patience are the cornerstones according to him.[24] He has been 100 percent invested for the past 30 years of his investing career.[25]
