A graduate of both Harvard Law School and Harvard Business School, George Putnam, III first became involved with distressed securities as a lawyer in the late 1970s. Seeing the inefficient niche that bankruptcies and turnarounds were presented and researched, he founded New Generation Research, Inc. and began publishing The Turnaround Letter in 1986. Since then he has frequently been quoted in Barron's, The Wall Street Journal, New York Times, USA Today and other financial publications. In 1990, he was named investment advisor of the year by USA Today. In addition to his responsibilities at New Generation Research, Inc., Mr. Putnam also serves as a trustee for The Putnam Companies, a mutual fund group with over $100 billion in assets.
I am currently studying quantitative finance, computer science, and mathematics as an undergraduate. I hope to learn as much as possible about investing and portfolio management through spending much of my free time reading books and following the news.
Professional Accounting graduate, and holder of the Investment Management Certificate (IMC) awarded by the CFA Society UK. I focus mainly, on stocks for longer-term investors.
