Andrew Nava LLC is a healthcare focused consulting and investment firm.
Prior to launching Andrew Nava LLC, I was a venture analyst, buy-side analyst, and most recently, the Director of Research at Actin Biomed, a New York-based healthcare investment firm where I was responsible for the medical, scientific and financial evaluation of potential private and public investments. I received my M.D. from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and my B.S. in Biology from Cal Poly Pomona where I graduated summa cum laude.
Wide Moat Investing (http://widemoatinvesting.wordpress.com/) is a blog written from Charlottesville, Virginia that wants to better understand what makes a good business great, and hopefully uncover some investment opportunities along the way. As Warren Buffett once told his shareholders, “I don’t want an easy business for competitors. I want a business with a moat around it. I want a very valuable castle in the middle and then I want a duke who is in charge of that castle to be very honest and hardworking and able. Then I want a moat around that castle. The moat can be various things: The moat around our auto insurance business, GEICO, is low cost.”At the blog, we will analyze and value businesses particularly by examining their economic "moats." To do so, we will employ a variety of quantitative or qualitative methods, inspired by the methods of successful investors like Warren Buffett, Philip Fisher, Benjamin Graham, Seth Klarman, and Charlie Munger.
