B.comm, Law Degree, CFA, and a Masters of Finance; I'm now working as a lawyer in the securities/public M&A sphere. I see law as my job, but investing more of a passion. I have been investing for well in excess of 10 years and have a proven track-record. Although in my personal account I focus mainly on Canadian stocks, my articles on SA, due to necessity, typically focus more on the US markets.
