Discover How You Can Take Advantage of Booming India

India Profit Expedition
October 23 – November 5, 2010

This fall, we'll uncover firsthand India's hidden beauty … rich heritage … and enormous money-making opportunities …

Dear Reader,

Palaces of white marble and red sandstone … minarets that carve graceful curves in the clouds … opulent gardens where blossoms tumble into reflective lakes …

That’s the rich backdrop for the story of today's India – a country poised to emerge triumphant in the 21st century. As William Pesek, a columnist for Bloomberg News put it, India “remains an oasis of stability in a reeling global economy.”

Superior Quality

"Super! I would only travel to India with a tour of this caliber. On a scale of 0 to 4, I'd give this tour a 4+4!" -- P.D.

In fact, it's not just stable … it's booming. And this fall, we're heading back with Karim Rahemtulla, Chief Options and Emerging Markets Strategist of White Cap Research Group and Investment U's India expert, as our guide to see for ourselves the best profit plays.

Our group will be small and we'll meet with top executives of the top companies. On our last trip, for example, we met with firms in the huge entertainment sector … the fastest-growing bank … companies in the manufacturing sector … and the world's largest information-technology outfit,Infosys Technologies (Nasdaq: INFY). We even took a personal tour of its massive campus and just a single investment in the company's stock would have paid for the trip several times over.

Agora Publishing, our parent company, has business operations in India and the division has become one of the most respected and fastest-growing financial research firms in the country. Through our contacts there, we have the ability to visit firms directly and get great, first-hand insights – information we simply wouldn't have by looking at annual reports.

This trip is about access. About insights. About putting our boots on the ground to uncover the kind of profit plays you just don't hear about any other way.

 The truth is, India just makes sense right now. (You could argue, more sense from an investment standpoint than anyplace else on earth.)

Its stock market returns over the past couple of years have beaten most other global markets.

And with a population of over one billion, India has a huge edge over smaller emerging markets because it has the critical mass to withstand minor shocks to the system.

India isn't reliant on a huge export market for the bulk of its growth.

Its enormous, educated middle class – a group larger than the population of the entire United States – has the capacity to spend enough money to buy products that were once considered luxuries (washers/dryers, TVs, cars, etc). This generates tremendous economic activity without the issues of trade balance.

And because of India's protectionist business nature, companies tend to thrive without the threat of multi-national competition.

But this isn't all that India has in its favor …

Infrastructure Boom Spells Profits
for India's Construction Giants

Along with a growing export market, India is also in the midst of a multi-hundred billion-dollar infrastructure boom.

The investment potential within the infrastructure sector is enormous. Companies like Larson & Toubro dominate the construction and infrastructure markets and are very well positioned to profit from the increased spending.

And while there are obviously a huge number of foreign companies that operate in India, they have to deal with the unpredictability of a market that is open, yet closed.

For Indian firms, however, the sky is the limit. The home-grown successes of Tata Motors (NYSE: TTM), Reliance Capital and Mittal (before it became international steel giant, Arcelor-Mittal (NYSE: MT)) have allowed them to build up huge war chests of cash. They're now re-deploying it into the relatively young Indian export market.

 From October 23-November 5, we'll take a firsthand look at India's growth potential and get an inside peek at how a rare combination of politics, business, and the age-old forces of supply and demand are transforming India into one of the economic powerhouses of the 21st century.

This is an unusual opportunity to see India in a way very few foreigners can … to gain the kind of insider's intelligence that can mean huge gains to your bottom line. And, at the same time, to explore India's captivating culture, magnificent landscapes, breathtaking monuments, and delectable cuisine …

This Tour Can't Come at a Better Time …

The Indian economy is set to grow by 8.75% in 2010 and by roughly the same amount next year.

As Marc Faber, a prominent emerging-markets investor, told Time magazine, India is "like China 15 or 20 years ago."

The time is now to jump on this money train. And there’s simply no better way to get on board.

Domestic demand drives India’s economy – something that distinguishes it from most other Asian economies, which rely on exports to sustain economic growth.

India’s middle class will swell by more than 10 times, from 50 million to 583 million by 2025, according to the McKinsey Global Institute (MGI). And in that time, the nation’s consumer market will become the fifth largest in the world.

 The truth is: The sun is setting on the West's economic dominance … and tomorrow's biggest fortunes will be made in the East. This fall we’d like to show you the best ways to take advantage of that fact and position yourself for profit.

This India Profit Expedition takes a close look at India's role in the new Asian era and the specific investments you should make.

According to Rajat Gupta, former global manager of McKinsey and Co., “India will play a prominent role in the 21st century. It will pull ahead of China in the long run.” And this year, you can visit the country and experience the evolution firsthand.

This unique journey will take you through the major business hubs in India – Mumbai, Hyderabad, Udipur, Jaipur, Agra, Delhi … and more.

Unique and Interesting

"This was one of the most unique and interesting experiences I have ever had." -- R.S.

We'll take a private tour of a major IT campus in Hyderabad, get a personal pass to the Bombay Stock Exchange, learn about the most profitable opportunities in real estate, participate in two days of business meetings in Mumbai. And you’ll still have plenty of spare time to explore this ancient country.

You'll travel with experienced hosts, stay at elegant hotels, enjoy some of the finest cuisine India has to offer, absorb India's sheer beauty and spirituality … and all the while you’ll learn how to position yourself to profit in Asia.

This Event is Sure to Sell Out …

Remember, this rare opportunity is available for first responders only. With just 20 seats available, we're likely to sell out quickly. So I encourage you to reserve your place sooner rather than later.

You'll meet with India's "insiders" who will lead you on your profit pursuit during this fascinating and revealing tour …

Straight to the Source: Investment Ideas From the "Inside" …

If you've been to one of our conferences before, you know we spare no expense to bring you some of the best speakers possible. The India tour will be no different.

 Here's who we have lined up so far:

  • The head of a high-profile $30 billion Indian investment company. He’ll give you details on several under-the-radar opportunities that you simply won’t find in the pages of the Wall Street Journal … and he’ll reveal exactly how you could get in just in time to double your money …
  • Key representatives from major Indian companies in the manufacturing and entertainment sector. You'll learn why Bollywood is the next Hollywood … and how a few well-positioned investors are about to make a killing.
  • A prominent entrepreneur. He’ll reveal the handful of overlooked IT companies poised to explode in the coming year. You’ll also discover a rare real estate opportunity that lets you invest in one of the world’s hottest markets … with minimal risk.
  • A high-ranking government official. In Hyderabad – the new "cyberabad" – you will take a private tour of a major Indian company …

Intense, but Very
Pleasant Trip

"I seldom do this, but I must in this case. My wife and I traveled with Barbara Perriello to India last month. The hotels were always ready for us; the transportation was always on time. Without her, we would not have seen all the sights of India. Thanks to Barbara and her organization, she make a very intense travel trip very, very pleasant." -- H.S.

That's just a sample of what you can expect. We're still working out the final details and have calls out to several on-the-ground experts … officials … and prominent local business people. With our contacts in India working on your behalf, you can be sure you'll come away well-connected.

Plus, as I mentioned earlier, you'll also be traveling alongside Karim Rahemtulla, a nationally recognized stock expert CNBC calls a "market maven." Karim is the Chief Options and Emerging Markets Strategist of White Cap Research Group and founder of two options research services, The LEAPS Trader and The Income Trader: A Covered Call Strategy. He's also the former investment director of The Oxford Club. He travels to Asia regularly and has been following the progress of the Indian markets since his first visit in 1997.

You couldn't ask for a better expert on India … or a trip that shows you so much, so efficiently …

The Perfect Balance of Business and Pleasure …

 We’ve taken every last detail into account. And that means, for starters, that you'll have the finest accommodations. At the end of the day, you can escape to luxuriously appointed rooms with garden views.

You'll dine at chic restaurants, indulge in fresh naan and enjoy the signature cuisine that helped launch the spice trade centuries ago.

And the entertainment never ends. You'll take pleasure in everything from cocktail parties to private folk dancing performances and even an elephant ride!

Interesting People

"We had a great time... thanks to all of your planning and behind-the-scenes maneuvering. The group was a good one. We met many interesting people with varied backgrounds." -- R.Z.

The tour starts in Mumbai (Bombay). Here you’ll stay just opposite the Gateway of India and the waterfront, within walking distance of everything in the heart of Indian capitalism.

In Agra, you will tour the breathtaking Taj Mahal by the gentle evening light and spend the night at the luxurious Mughal … a garden oasis close to the center of the city.

In Delhi, you'll enjoy one of India's most exquisite hotels, the historic Oberoi.

You'll also visit Jaipur, where we’ve secured an exclusive reservation to stay at the Jai Tajmahal. Experience India’s cultural past and present in this authentic palace from the days of the Raj …

Plus we've fit in all sorts of wonderful excursions, including a couple of days of R&R in Udaipur, an elephant ride to the famous Amber Fort, Rajasthani folk dancing performances, visits to the Agra Fort, tours of Delhi and Mumbai and, as I mentioned, the breathtaking Taj Mahal …

 This is the sort of trip you simply couldn’t arrange on your own. It’s all about insider access … high-level insights … and discovering an extraordinary country in the company of experts who know it as only insiders can.

Join us on this India Profit Expedition to achieve a higher level of knowledge about India's culture, its fast-emerging economy, and the investment opportunities that lie ahead. And join us, too, for the pleasure of travel among like-minded friends … and the chance to see a place in a way you simply can’t as an individual traveler.

Day-by-Day Schedule

Day 1, Saturday, October 23: DEPARTURE

We suggest you depart today so you arrive in Mumbai on October 24 to meet the group. International Air is not included in our package, but we have negotiated discounted rates and can work with you on the flights.

Day 2, Sunday, October 24: MUMBAI

Flights arrive in Mumbai (Bombay). We will provide airport transfer for you to our five-star hotel just steps from the Gateway of India, where we'll stay for the next four nights at the Taj Majal Palace and Tower.

This hotel is an architectural marvel and brings together Moorish, Oriental and Florentine styles. Offering panoramic views of the Arabian Sea and the Gateway of India, the hotel is a truly gracious landmark, showcasing contemporary Indian influences along with beautiful vaulted alabaster ceilings, onyx columns, graceful archways, hand-woven silk carpets, crystal chandeliers, a magnificent art collection, an eclectic collection of furniture, and a dramatic cantilever stairway.

We’ll have some time to explore Mumbai, a city Rudyard Kipling extolled as the “Mother of cities.” The history of Mumbai (formerly Bombay) is the story of an incredible transformation. The British built it expressly for trade and over the years it changed hands many times – from the fishing village of the Kolis, through the Portuguese conquest, to Catharine of Aragon who took the seven islands of Mumbai as her dowry to Charles II of England.

Mumbai was – and still is – the Gateway to India, commemorated by a monument of that name built to mark the visit of King George and his consort, Mary. Today, Mumbai is India’s premiere commercial and financial city.

Day 3, Monday, October 25: MUMBAI

Today we will begin the day with a half-day tour of Mumbai city visiting Mani Bhawan, the Hanging Garden, Dhobi Ghat and Victoria Terminus. We will return to have lunch at the hotel.

In the afternoon we will have a private visit of the Bombay Stock Exchange, the oldest stock exchange in Asia. Popularly known as "BSE," it was established as "The Native Share & Stock Brokers Association" in 1875. B, L

Day 4, Tuesday, October 26: MUMBAI

Today we will have a full day of meetings at the local Cricket Club with Ajit Dayal, our contact on the ground. We will enjoy traditional local lunch at the club. Dinner will be at our hotel as a group this evening. B, L, D

Day 5, Wednesday, October 27: MUMBAI – HYDERABAD

This morning we fly to Hyderabad. Hyderabad is the fifth-largest cosmopolitan city in India, rich in culture, enduring history, and industrial growth. It is unique in being one of the few cities where tradition and technology co-exist. With a dynamic leadership, the state is steering the nation to new dimensions in the fields of Information Technology, Biotechnology, Pharmaceuticals, and Business Management, and Hyderabad is emerging as a city of immense business opportunities.

When we arrive in Hyderabad, we will visit a local company, enjoy a wonderful lunch at the elegant lakeside Novotel, and then visit a second company. After our visits we head to our luxurious hotel for the next two nights, The Taj Krishna. The rest of the evening is free for you to relax. B, L

Day 6, Thursday, October 28: HYDERABAD

Mid-morning we will enjoy an excursion to Golconda Fort, one of the most magnificent fortress complexes in India, situated about 11km from Hyderabad. It's built on a granite hill 120 meters high, surrounded by massive crenellated ramparts. It dates back to the early 13th century, when this south eastern part of the country was ruled by the Kakatiyas, though the bulk of the ruins date from the time of the Qutub Shahi kings in the 16th and 17th centuries. B, D

Day 7, Friday, October 29: HYDERABAD – UDAIPUR

We will fly this morning via Mumbai to Udaipur. The lovely city is set on the Shores of Lake Pichola and surrounded by hills. From the late 16th century, the era of renaissance encouraged the building of the beautiful palaces around the lake, culminating in the City Palace, one of the largest palace complexes in the world. The lake is a romantic setting surrounding the gleaming white Lake Palace and the Jag Mandir, a refuge of the rebel Mughal prince, Shah Jahan, the creator of the Taj Mahal. Upon our arrival we will check into our brand new hotel, the Leela Palace Udaipur. You will have time to stroll around and explore before our evening dinner extravaganza. B, D

Day 8, Saturday, October 30: UDAIPUR

Today we will visit Udaipur city. First we will go to City Palace, the largest palace complex in Rajasthan. Initially, Maharana Udai Singh built this wonder, but the present form is the result of subsequent additions by his successors. The Palace boasts of the wonderful blend of Medieval, European, and Chinese Architecture. Made of marble and granite and towering on the banks of Pichola Lake, City Palace is truly magnificent.

Our next stop is Saheliyon ki bari, one the most beautiful gardens in Udaipur. The garden is famous for its lush green lawns, marble art, and fountains. In English, Saheliyon Ki Bari means "Garden of maids." This renowned garden is located on the banks of Fateh Sagar Lake, offering a green retreat in the dry lands of Rajasthan. Garden of maids was built in the 18th century by Maharana Sangram Singh for the royal ladies.

This evening we will tour Pichola Lake by boat … no trip to Udaipur is complete without a boat ride. Rudyard Kipling mentioned this lake in his Letters of Marque (1899), saying: "If the Venetian owned the Pichola Lake, he might say with justice, 'see it and die'." With the sun setting red over the lake and the waters glistening blue, this evening promises to be spectacular. B

Day 9, Sunday, October 31: UDAIPUR – JAIPUR

Today we have the morning free and will depart in the early afternoon for our flight to Jaipur. Jaipur was built in 1727 by King Jai Singh, after whom it was named. Its most striking feature is the pink wash applied to the buildings, from which it takes its universal title, the "Pink City.' Jaipur, with its fairy-tale palaces and rugged fortresses, displays remarkable harmony in its architectural splendor.

Jaipur's crafts – especially lacquer bangles – are famous worldwide. Some of the palaces, once the residence of Maharajas, have been converted to heritage hotels.

Here we will stay at one, the Jai Mahal Palace. Set amidst 18 acres of beautifully landscaped Moghul gardens, this incomparable Palace dates back to 1745 A.D. A masterpiece in the Indo Saracenic style of architecture, it blends spotlight-grabbing opulence with tantalizing comforts that transport guests to a world of Rajasthan magnificence. It is conveniently located downtown, so you'll be close to the main shopping center and historic monuments.

Upon our arrival, we will first do a half-day tour of Jaipur visiting the Palace of Winds (photo stop), City Palace, and the Observatory. This evening we will have a spectacular folk dance performance and dinner at the hotel. B, D

Day 10, Monday, November 1: JAIPUR

Today we will climb up to Amber Fort on elephant-back (subject to availability). Jeeps will also be available if you prefer to travel the "modern way."

The construction of the Amber Fort began in 1592 by Man Singh I and was finished by his descendant Jai Singh I. The exterior of the Fort – built of white marble and red sandstone – is not in the least like its interior. The outside is very imposing and rugged looking, whereas the inside is comforting and warm, influenced by both Hindu and Muslim styles.

Paintings on the walls depict hunting scenes. And intricate carvings, mosaic, and minute mirror work cover many surfaces. The effect is grand, and the halls look majestic and imperial.

The fort sits at the edge of Maota Lake where, watching its reflection shimmer in the water, you get the sense that perhaps it's just a beautiful illusion.

After our visit to the fort we will enjoy lunch as a group and then return to the hotel where you'll have the afternoon and evening at leisure. B, L

Day 11, Tuesday, November 2: JAIPUR – FATEHPUR SIKRI – AGRA

We will drive by motorcoach to Agra, visiting en route Fatehpur Sikri (265 Kms).

Agra is globally renowned as the city of the Taj Mahal. But this royal Mughal city has, in addition to the legendary Taj, many monuments that epitomize the high point of Mughal architecture.

In the Mughal period – the 16th and 17th centuries – Agra was the capital of India. It was here that the founder of the dynasty, Babar, laid out the first formal Persian garden on the banks of the river Yamuna. Here his grandson, Akbar, raised the towering ramparts of the great Red Fort. Within its walls, Jehangir built rose-red palaces, courts and gardens, and Shah Jahan embellished it with marble mosques, palaces, and pavilions of gem-inlaid white marble. The crowning glory of the city is the Taj, a monument of love and imagination that represents India to the world.

On arrival in Agra we will check into the beautiful ITC Mughal Hotel.

This evening we will visit the Taj Mahal at Sunset. The Taj Mahal was built by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan as the mausoleum of his beloved Queen Mumtaz Mahal, who died in 1631. Recognized worldwide as a symbol of eternal love, the breathtaking Taj is built of white marble and is surrounded by green gardens. A UNESCO World Heritage site, it's considered one of the wonders of the world. Tonight we will enjoy dinner and a dance show at our hotel. B, D

Day 12, Wednesday, November 3: AGRA – DELHI

If you like, you can opt for an early morning visit to the Taj Mahal at sunrise. At approximately 12:30PM we will check out or our hotel and go by Motorcoach to Delhi.

Delhi is one of the oldest continually inhabited cities in the world. Having been the capital of several empires in ancient India, Delhi was a major city in the old trade routes from northwest India to the Gangetic Plains.

The Mughals built a section of the city (now known as Old City or Old Delhi) that served as the capital of Mughal Empire for a long period. During the British Raj, New Delhi was built as an administrative quarter of the city. And New Delhi was declared the capital of India after India gained independence from British rule in 1947. As the seat of the Government of India, New Delhi houses important offices of the federal government, including the Parliament of India.

Here we will stay at the Oberoi, New Delhi which reflects the city's spirit in a harmonious blend of tradition and contemporary sophistication. Located close to the downtown near business, commercial, and shopping districts, the luxury hotel overlooks Delhi's prestigious Golf Club on one side and the heritage site of Humayun's Tomb on the other. Exquisite interiors, impeccable service, and fine cuisine combine to make this the Capital's most graceful and elegant hotel. Dinner together in the city. B, D

Day 13, Thursday, November 4: Delhi – evening flight to USA

Today we will visit Old Delhi and see Jama Masjid, Red Fort (photo stop), Raj Ghat, and then continue our tour of New Delhi visiting Qutab Minar and India Gate, driving past President House, Government Buildings, and Connaught Place. We will arrange for a later check out from the hotel as most of the flights return to the U.S. in the evening, arriving on November 5. If, instead, you prefer so spend an extra night in Delhi, just let us know. B
