Our Story

Founded by Arpan Khanal and Sumit Pradhanang, KPIS was initially set up as a private company with strong research foundation to feed attractive, investable businesses into the Company’s proprietary Investment Fund. During our investment research and market studies, we realized that the equity research, advisory, and management industry in Nepal is a highly disorganized space, due to which, many retail and institutional investors have lost money.

Because we already had a strong research arm comprised of experienced and academically qualified professionals, we developed various products and services to help retail and institutional investors create wealth.

Our investment principles, processes, and offerings are greatly influenced by the value investment philosophy set out by Warren Buffet and Charlie Munger. Through our research, we seek to identify growth-oriented companies with strong competitive moats in attractive industries run by motivated managers which will create wealth for shareholders.
