Hearty congratulations! It takes courage to influence so many people the way you did in this market. Well deserved. Please convey our congratulations to the whole BrainPoint Team.
- Anil Chindani (Finance Director - Rest of Asia, AB Sciex Singapore Pte Ltd)
Dear Jaydeep, congrats to you and the BrainPoint team on once again winning CNBC TV 18’s BEST FINANCIAL ADVISOR - West Zone Award. I am not surprised at all given the immense hard work that you and your team put in, attention to detail, ethics, efforts in educating us and investor first approach. I feel very comfortable and secure investing my funds with BrainPoint. In the mad volatility of the financial world, BrainPoint helps bring a bit of calm. This award is very well deserved.
- Viren Rasquinha, Former captain of Indian Hockey Team & Arjuna Awardee
Many Congratulations to you and team BrainPoint once again for standing out among so many others. I believe your awards are a result of thoroughly researched, practical & most importantly genuine advice given to those associated with you.. always keeping their best interests at heart. We as a family feel proud to be associated with Brainpoint and take this opportunity to thank you immensely. We look forward to a positive future.
- Murtaza Partapgarhwala, Pune
A testimonial to method and ability! Congratulations Jaydeep & Team... To do it consistently it is a mean feat... The only other person I know is Nadal.
- Devashish Ray
Congratulations. You genuinely deserve it. Apart from your correct prediction of market, you never ever focus on profit of BRAINPOINT but protect your client’s investment only to grow not loose. This award is for your genuineness.
- Usha Sudhir Potdar
Congratulations on your performance once again. It proves that your advice, in the long run, is always beneficial for the long-term investors. We are proud to be associated with you.

2017 Investor Feedback Survey

I have been associated with BrainPoint since a decade and have been constantly rewarded with fantastic returns. A very professional Company managed by very thorough Professionals. We hope to continue our relations through our generations.
- Zaki Kazi (Executive Director, MIDCO Ltd.)
I do not have a remotest doubt about the ethics at BrainPoint. In fact, this is the strongest value of BrainPoint which binds investors like us to your company as we cherish this the most. I am fortunate to get myself associated with the BrainPoint, though very late in my life. Very few (probably none) Financial advisers would dare to advise their investors to pull back their investments from equity mutual funds and invest in liquid fund when markets are heating up, as this could impact their professional fees. But here is an adviser (BrainPoint) who puts business ethics and selflessness above business earnings and advised us to do so. This is a biggest testimony of your business principles and I am a very proud customer of yours. You have always given us a right advise at a right time. Your constant communication, both in good and specially in bad times, has given us lot of comfort and confidence.
- Anil Gagvani (Head – Asset Management, ReNew Power)
I must have been one of the earliest investors and seen BrainPoint evolve and strategically focus on areas of investment which is most relevant in today's time in my view, i.e. MF and Insurance. The knowledge provided through continuous connect and information flow helps derive the comfort that one’s hard earned money is safe. Coupled with that the service provided is unparalleled. It would be really difficult to actively manage ones MF portfolio through market timing without the expert help of BrainPoint and now with use of technology, it is really a cakewalk to seamlessly execute these strategies. Above all, seeing the continuity and familiar faces every time you visit (easier with the new premises) it gives one the confidence about the care that the associates are provided by the owners which makes them continue just as the investors continue their fulfilling journey with Jaydeep and the team.
- Anil Chindani (Finance Director - Rest of Asia, AB Sciex Singapore Pte Ltd)
The Smart choice of finalising your advisor is not the one who charges 0.50%-1.00% less but the one who has a track record of picking ‘Future Winners’ who delivers several extra % returns year-on-year. The one who not just recommends to buy all 365 days, but also advices on when to sell. And most importantly has been himself / herself successful in overcoming the fear - greed syndrome and doesn’t get carried away with market trends. Such advisor will save a sizeable part of your wealth erosion during bad times. Think about it, saving fees is more critical or the returns? The answer is not difficult. The answer is BrainPoint!
- Mamta Sadh (Advocate, Mumbai High Court)
I am investing through BrainPoint for last 20 years. I retired from my job in 2002. My last 15 years of wonderful retired life, I give 100% credit to BrainPoint for their ethical and valuable advice and for taking care of my investments.
- Anil Gururaj Koimattur (Ex-General Manager, The Shipping Corporation of India)
The best value I get from Brainpoint is that it motivates me to invest in a timely manner. I also feel secure with the knowledge that a professional is proactively monitoring my investments with high assurance of integrity. It's important for me that someone advises and facilitates buy and sell at appropriate time without any vested interests.
- Rajiv Shetye (Process Consultant, IT and Software Engineering)
I have been NRI client. Your ethical and expert advice has turned my life to relax and peaceful from anxious. First time ever I have realized benefits of ethical advice on attractive advice. This is what financial advisors should do! I have never had this kind of experience in the past even with BIG BRANDED financial advisors.
- Lalit Badgujar (Dubai)
BrainPoint not only seeks to multiply ones portfolio, but also to educate the investors about the vagaries of this wretched industry, while observing the highest standards of transparency, ethics and full disclosure.
- Pratik H. Mehta (Andheri W, Mumbai)
Before my retirement I used to be anxious about the huge work involved in investing retirement funds in right instruments and thereafter monitoring the investments regularly. In one stroke BrainPoint has not only relieved me of this anxiety but has also generated handsome returns for me, way beyond my expectations.
- Anjali Patil (Andheri W, Mumbai)
It has been around 1.5 years with Brainpoint. In this time I feel unlucky that I was not associated with this team earlier. Having said that I am thankful to my friend who introduced me to Brainpoint in Jan 2016. Having a single and focused approach on wealth management has been an eye-opening revelation for me. And having a clean, transparent and ongoing open dialogue on investments is the best part of the team. Thank you and keep up the good work.
- Amay Karnik (Andheri E, Mumbai)

June 2014 @ Sensex 25000

I would like to congratulate you for your stunning performance of 20% XIRR vs Sensex 10% & that too over a 5 year period. Infact I give 100% credit of the entire returns to you as your outperformance as I would have never dared to invest the few times which I did in last few years of utterly boring markets. Your messages somehow made me invest & now I am enjoying the wonderful rewards. I am super happy.
- Mamta Sadh, Advocate High Court
Firstly I was amazed to see 100% gain in Mirae Emerging this week. And now I am doubly amazed to see the dazzling outperformance over last 5 years. Hats off. Brilliant job done. You guys truly deserve the CNBC Best Advisor Awards.
- Rajan Pathak
Wow! Fantastic turnaround after a long period of anxiety only due to the relentless advice and motivation provided by BrainPoint but for which staying back invested may not have been possible. Thanks a ton to the entire BrainPoint team.
- Anil Chindani
I have full faith on your experience and market understanding. My wife has full faith on your professional approach and client first attitude. My kids believe that you are doubling their fathers money which will be wealth for them end of the day. Entire family is totally depended on your experience, approach and credibility. Superb show!!
- H. L. Pathak

Year 2012-13

Most Importantly you make me & all your other investors invest at low levels at times when we panic due to negative news. I think thats more important than advising the right funds at the right time which anyways is your forte.
- Balkrishna Iyer
My biggest benefit I feel is that i avoid mistakes while investing with your sound advice.
- Aditya Sheth
Your timing of funds has undoubtedly helped. At the same time would like to thank BRAINPOINT for always encouraging me through your wonderful advice via sms, emails & phone calls to keep investing low. I feel proud when I invest low when most others are selling. Your encouragement undoubtedly helps here.
- Pragyan Desai
MF: Past performance may or may not be sustained in future. BrainPoint: Past performance is boosting clients confidence to keep following BrainPoint advice without asking any question and performance will come to you sure.
- Rajan Pathak
I feel really lucky to have you as i get both, EXPERTISE & ETHICS. Your fees are very well justified.
- Cyrus Pittalwala
Moral: Follow BPIC advice & keep investing w/o hesitation.Let others get carried away by media and end up taking wrong decisions. Patience pays and haste is waste in Equity markets. It is not T20 but a Test match where Application = Investing at BPIC calls, Class = BPIC funds, Temparament = Patience to stay invested when BPIC tells
- Sapna Raut
Thank You for your timely advice on 'Right Funds at Right Time' & also on 'Mkt Timing' to Buy Low and Sell High. Till 2010, I made very good returns thanks to your advice & the market rally. Since last 2 yrs due to problems in europe & also in India mkts have been down & lacklustre but you have done your job 100%. I am sure we all will once again benefit immensely sooner than later on invts done in past 1.5 yrs which have actually done very good in bad mkt conditions. No doubt they will roar in good mkts.
- Madhav Prabhu
Brainpoint is undoubtedly giving us right advice at the right time & bacause of that we are enjoying good returns. Sometimes mkts are dull & down but we know there is no need to panic as brainpoint is there with us.
- Amee Shirodkar
We investors are sincerely blessed to have an experienced advisor like you to manage our hard earned money. Continue with your good work & we will be more than happy to continue to be with you.
- Ravi Razdan
Only a good financial advisor can help in getting positive returns from a volatile market. I feel lucky that my investment portfolio is in right hands. Thank you for making us more financially literate on where should we invest our hard-earned money.
- Seema Purohit
Dear Jaydeep & Team,

When one is dealing with a group of dedicated people like you all, it is my pleasure to let you know how I feel about your Company!

  1. Advice level: Nandini Sarang has been my advisor from the first day I entered your office in 2003 and all I can say is that I have been blessed having her to guide me. Her wise and educated advice has brought me nothing but gain. Yes, we have had some minor hiccups but overall I trust her judgment completely. She is prompt and very efficient.
  2. Team: have not interacted very much with the others but I have observed them when in your office and find them a dedicated lot.
  3. SMS / Email updates: Very informative and on the button!
  4. Service Standards: Very efficient - keep it up!
  5. Our strengths: Having Jaydeep at the helm and his accurate predictions keep all of us happy. I hope he realizes that he brings a lot of joy to his investors - Thank you. Also, I think Nandini is a huge plus for your Company.
