ABP News’ Fund Ka Funda will be hosting a special guest Dhirendra Kumar, CEO, Valueresearchonline.com, on the show.

He also contributes to The Economic Times and Dainik Jagran, as well as publishing financial periodicals and news portals.
The weekly themes of the show will include stories and short discussions. The show will cover the week’s major investment news and analyze its implications. The areas of key discussions during the show would be upcoming IPOs, impact of big government decisions on investment, and whether real estate prices currently are rightly valued or not. The show aims to be a one stop destination for all your investment queries.
According to a survey, 330 million people shopped online in the year 2020. However, only a small fraction of that number of people invest online. ABP News believes that there is a large number of audience waiting to invest their money at the right place with the guidance of an authentic source. ABP News’ Fund Ka Funda plans to connect with this audience and provide them with valuable insights that will help them invest their money at the right place.
Fund Ka Funda also wishes to highlight that not all investors are financially literate. The financial literacy of the country is low and there has been a huge increase in individual investors in the Indian stock market in the financial year of 2021. However, a large chunk of these investors lack the knowledge required to make financially sound decisions. Fund Ka Funda aims to help these individuals to assess all the dynamics of investment before investing their money.
