I am portfolio manager of a hedge fund that seeks to achieve capital appreciation by taking advantage of undervalued investment opportunities in: i) value equities, ii) growth equities, iii) event-driven securities and iv) by engaging in short sales. We employ a thematic top-down overlay in determining portfolio construction and in idea generation, combined with rigorous fundamental analysis.
Previously, I worked as a senior equity research analyst at a successful hedge fund, employing a similar investment strategy, for over 12 years. I began my career as an investment banker at DLJ and graduated from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.
I am a Hanna-Barbera cartoon character created in 1959, a pink anthropomorphic mountain lion sporting an upturned collar, shirt cuffs and a green hat. If you find yourself taking investment advice from a pink lion with a green hat, you have most likely ingested some sort of hallucinogen. Step away from the computer, put on some Allman Brothers and go lie down on the couch for a while. Just close your eyes if the ceiling starts to melt.
Born and raised in the USA, graduated with a degree in Finance then worked at a multi-strategy global hedge fund for about 4 years analyzing stocks all over the world. In 2007 I left the USA and moved to China to study Chinese and start a business. Now, I am the CEO and Co-founder of eFin which provides wall street level research to main street investors via a proprietary algorithm. Our eFin scoe that takes into consideration hundreds of factors to provide the best period of time to make an investment in a stock.
Nevertheless, my experience working at the hedge fund and running my own business has improved vastly my investment making decisions. I believe Warren Buffett said it best “I am a better investor because I am a businessman and a better businessman because I am an investor”. I have had my share of busts and winners and have gotten wise enough to always look at both sides of every investment no matter how negative or optimistic the situation is.

"Demonstrated success is the one outstanding fact which justifies confidence in the outlook for any particular business, and thus the investor will always, as a first test for an industry security, carefully consider the results already obtained." - John Moody

I have studied to ply my trade in finance with a bachelors in accounting. In 2014, I developed an app to access corporate disclosure materials at the SEC. My grandparent’s home was filled with valuing investing paraphernalia and, naturally, I became interested in the stock market.
