Who is Dolly Khanna?

Dolly Khanna is a Chennai-based investor known for her knack for investing in unpopular stocks that yield alpha returns. Meaning returns that exceed the key benchmark by a huge margin. Rajiv Khanna, the husband of Dolly, manages her portfolio.

Rajiv Khanna is an IIT-Madras graduate and a chemical engineer by profession. He established Kwality Milk Foods, a frozen yoghurt company, in 1986. The couple sold the business to FMCG giant Hindustan Unilever Ltd. Rajiv Khanna invested the proceeds entirely in bank fixed deposits. But later, he moved it all to equities.

Unlike most other celebrity investors, Dolly and Rajiv Khanna are not immensely popular. Neither do they call themselves market experts nor do they appear in the media. They even don’t have a formal education about the market. However, these two millionaire investors have the most important ingredients for success in the market—patience and good stock-picking skills.
