We are a team of two professional investment analysts working for a well established Investment Management firm in the City of London. James@fundgurus - I have worked for a number of years in the Investment industry gaining experience from a range of different avenues. Starting my career out as a commodity and short term interest futures trader I moved into Investment Management. My current work involves performance reporting, qualitative and quantitative analysis of OEICs, Investment Trusts and Equities. Regular meetings with Fund Managers provide me with insight into the strategies used and company analysis from a wide range of investment funds. Andrew@fundgurus - I began my investment career in New York interning at a multinational bank before moving back to the UK to continue my investment career within Investment Management. Myself and James work alongside each other discussing investment ideas and strategies.
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.
I have degree in Chemistry from Sheffield University and an early MBA from the same.
started work at British Steel and then Burroughs Machines.
In the late1980's and 1990's i was founder and CEO of a top UK CADCAM company. Later (2000) i was Chairman and Director of a Document Technologies company which we sold in 2007.

I am a value investor to the greatest extent possible. I also favor dividend stocks. I try to be a buy-and-hold investor, but sometimes I can't avoid the tempation to ring the register or to accumulate the inevitable tax loss. The main thing I have learned is that I have lost more money by selling too soon than for any other reason. I reside in Henderson, NV.
