Junior PM of a private investment partnership
I study the best and attempt to emulate them. The best being Warren Buffett and Peter Lynch, and try to study their influences Graham and Fisher. I believe the best approach to equities is recognizing a company in its growth stage and buying it at a reasonable valuation. I was a finance major in college and learned more from reading books written by and about the greatest investors of all time.
I am an avid reader of market news and company publications with the aim of improving my investment acumen. I enjoy expressing my findings and opinions through writings. My appreciation and understanding of business strategies improved to a whole new level since completing an MBA (Distinction) from the University of Birmingham.
Career Environmental Scientist with more than a decade of experience in consulting for commercial and government clients and working in corporate compliance for various industries.

I am a retired veterinarian. I have been investing in stocks since the early eighties. During the earlier years of that time frame, I concentrated on small value stocks but now, since I retired, I mostly invest in large dividend payers.
