Financial freedom is the goal of many investors. However, money isn’t the only freedom we should be pursuing. In fact, there are four other freedoms that can help you lead a rich and fulfilling life. Understanding the 5 freedoms has put Vikram Raya on a path of enlightenment to help others with wealth and health.
As a cardiologist, Vikram began investing in multifamily apartments and launched Viking Capital to help others join him on his mission. They own over 3,000 apartment units and continue to grow their holdings. He shares how he made the transition from a cardiologist to a multifamily investor. Vikram resides in Fairfax, Virginia, and has strong ties to Atlanta, Georgia.
In his role as a cardiologist, he recognized that there was a lack of focus on holistic solutions that drive vitality so he opened the Vitalogy Institute. As an investor, he’s working to help others achieve financial freedom through the passive income and tax benefits of commercial real estate. Our conversation covers the markets he’s investing in today, how he raised $10 million in one week, how he managed his business through COVID, how he bounced back from a scam, and how to stand out with commercial brokers.
