Coffee With Ven-erable Journalist

Apr 3, 2024

Veteran journalist Ven Sreenivasan and I are kindred spirits, bonded by our shared passion for uncovering under-the-radar small caps.

Even before I started out as an analyst, I relished reading his articles in The Business Times. His small-cap analyses in the Hock Lock Siew column, along with his insightful scoops on the aviation sector and the Golf Index, are etched vividly in my memory. While I am not a golfer, the golf membership index he constructed was seen as a predictor of the economy.

Following his 25-year tenure at BT, he blazed new trails by establishing MoneyFM, Singapore’s first finance-focused radio station. Today, he graces the pages of The Straits Times with his weekly column, deep diving into lesser known stocks. His exceptional dedication to unearthing hidden gems in the Singapore market earned him the Hidden Gem Award at the SGX Orb Awards last year. It’s as if that award was tailor-made for him!
