"Nikhil completed his PhD in Financial Econometrics and a three month post-doctoral assignment after the PhD in exceptional fashion, demonstrating a strong commitment to quality and detail in his work, ambitious uptake of cutting-edge techniques, and fast and innovative methods of tackling problems, particularly with regards to software development."
Professor Paolo Zaffaroni, Chair of Finance and Professor of Financial Econometrics, Imperial College Business School
"Nikhil provided excellent customised training in Mathematics and [Matlab] Programming from basic to advanced levels that truly exceeded my expectations. He has given me a clear and logical framework and is also assisting with some of my firm's Algorithmic Research."
Rodney Ngone, Chief Investment Officer at Sagat Capital Limited
"Nikhil helped me to understand complex Econometrics topics such as Stationarity, Cointegration, and the use of the Johansen test and cointegrating eigenvectors to formulate pairs and triplet trading strategies. He also helped with analysis based on our data and provided a simple heuristic based on a Bollinger Band strategy in Matlab.”
Mark Levy, Independent Trader
“I had a vision for a Financial platform, but was new to programming. I wanted to learn Python from scratch as it can implement all the functionality I require.
Nikhil brought me up to speed with basic syntax, then helped me gain intermediate-level proficiency and confidence in applying theory to solve problems, by working through fun and relevant Hackerrank challenges with me (I have now completed over 50, covering topics from Numpy to Object-Oriented Programming).
He then introduced me to Jupyter Notebooks, which he used to help me to design the foundational components of my platform. I am now confident that I can build the platform, and will continue to work with Nikhil going forwards to implement my vision.”

"Nikhil built a highly sophisticated correlation Indicator, EA and supporting Library of functions for me. All are excellent and were done for a very reasonable price. Since then we have worked together on extending the tools' functionality and I will definitely go to him again for my future projects."
Rishi Gohill, Proprietary Trader and Founder of Gohill Trading Company Limited, http://gohilltrading.co.uk/
"Nikhil built a MT4 EA [automated trade execution program] for me very quickly and met my requirements fully. It enables me to place a trade with correct position sizing calculated automatically, simply by drawing a Fibonacci Retracement on a chart."
Michael P, Independent Trader
"Analysis using multiple time frames is very important. Nikhil's Indicators are useful because for a given chart (e.g. EURUSD H1), they show key levels from many higher timeframes (e.g. H4, D1, W1…), so helping a trader avoid trading against higher timeframe trends."
P K, Independent Trader
"Nikhil performed Backtesting for us to a high standard of quality and with great presentation of the results. This allowed us to evaluate our strategy's performance better."

"Nikhil helped me to set up a VPS [Virtual Private Server for remote trade placement and management] for my trading, thus guaranteeing the reliability of my system (no downtime).
The work was carried out in a professional manner and on time. Nikhil also took the time to explain things clearly as I am not computer literate. I would have no hesitation in recommending Nikhil's work."
Joe Branco, Forex Living, http://www.forex-living.com
"It is hard to find an instructor as intelligent as Nikhil, who is still able to connect with and encourage students whose knowledge base is far less familiar with foreign Finance topics and difficult theories and concepts. He prepares lessons perfectly catered to each students' needs and is patient and highly accommodating of different learning styles. I will be continuing lessons with Nikhil this summer to learn a bit about Excel and [Matlab and SQL] Programming and did not hesitate when choosing him as my teacher. Anything he has the ability to teach I would take, as again, it's rare to find an instructor as capable yet mindful of students' needs and unique learning styles."

"I needed Econometrics help with implementing multivariate volatility models for my MPhil dissertation. Nikhil was very helpful in showing me how to use programs in R and eViews to get my results and provide support with methodology and project structure, while maintaining an ethical distance from doing the project for me."

“Nikhil really helped me and three friends [Group Tutoring] learn Statistics for Marketing from scratch, both in terms of theory and application (in Excel). He dealt with our sometimes very basic questions kindly and patiently, and created fun examples and exam questions to help us relate to the material and give us practice since our course does not have many existing materials. Nikhil was a huge help for all of us. "

"Nikhil provided me with invaluable support and guidance during a stressful time preparing for a very challenging Econometrics course. He provided me with simple and clear explanations of the very complex subject matter, helped me set up a study strategy and execute it, and even made studying this dry and academic subject enjoyable! I have every confidence that I passed the exam thanks to him and I look forward to working with him again in the future."

Mark U, Real Estate Professional
"Nikhil has given me a much better understanding of the material on my Mathematics course, by leading me through the topics bit by bit. This has helped me simplify a lot of areas on the course that were previously very challenging, and allowed me to incorporate it into other areas of my degree as well"
Richard Anderson, 2nd Year Undergraduate studying Economics at UCL
"Nikhil helped me by making himself available at short notice, and also showed flexibility to tutor me [Econometrics] in person where I live."
