GARP Stock Vault is a source of proprietary investing research for value investors. I’m Raman Minhas and articles are focused on 1) things I pick up along the way which can enhance thinking 2) specific companies or situations I invest in. You’re free to copy either (see Disclaimer below).

Outside of investing, my day job involves working with an entrepreneurial healthcare company. The entrepreneurs, teams and patients I work with are a fascinating group of people – I’m grateful every day for what they teach me.
Previously, I was an ER doctor and a life sciences analyst. I live in a small town an hour from London, UK and enjoy spending time with family, friends, walking and tai chi.
