Oliver is principal at Huckleberry Investments, a London based investment manager. He invests using a long-term value strategy, aiming to produce low-risk returns far in excess of the market. Oliver achieves this outcome by running a very concentrated portfolio, relying on intensive research to uncover the best opportunities.

Single name short positions are very rare and are only initiated if conviction is high.
