The Challenge

seat11a.com was founded by Sanjay, an Investment Professional, who worked a combined 25 years as a portfolio manager and salesperson in the equity business.


Over the years Sanjay experienced many changes in the financial industry, but the most recent MiFid regulations and COVID19 undoubtfully had the most substantial impact and invariably transformed the way the industry is doing business today.


…Hedge funds are cashing in on an unintended consequence of European financial regulations on investment research:

Touring factories or premises with a top executive can show investors how a company is really run..”

How did we come up with our name?

We all have been extensively traveling over the last 25 years to meet clients or companies. As a frequent traveler you

learn how to extract the most value of each US$ spend.

By typically flying with the Airbus A321, we figured out pretty early the most buck for value was seat 11a, paying economy, and getting business class space.


This inspired us to name our company seat11a.com, we naturally want you to get the most value out of your input.
