The key traits on which the nominees were marked were Interpersonal Intelligence, Team Involvement, Authenticity and Integrity and Mentoring and Developing. "Getting an award feels good as it is a recognition of one's efforts to make a difference to common investors' lives. My utmost priority is to connect with viewers for their economic prosperity in a language which is simple to understand," says Naveen. Naveen can be seen hosting shows like Aaj ka bazar-kahan lagaayein paisa - a precursor to market opening at 8am, Aapka Bazaar – a caller-based show on the stock market at 10:30am, Antim Baazi at market closing time and Money Guru – a caller based show on personal finance at 6:30pm. Naveen was earlier associated with CNBC India. A trained Business Economist, he did his post-graduation in Business Economics (MBE) from Kurukshetra University. He started his career in business broadcast journalism with the Delhi-based Jain TV in 2001. He later joined Nimbus to host stock market shows on Doordarshan. He came back to Delhi to rejoin Jain TV for a short stint before joining CNBC. “The Indian economy is growing at the second highest pace in the world, but not everyone is benefiting from it. I am thankful to the Almighty for placing me in a position where I can help people achieve their financial goals, by telling them the ways of disciplined investing in various asset classes,” adds Naveen. The Essel family congratulates Naveen Soni on his achievement.
