I am a personal finance and investing blogger. A software designer by profession, I have a passion for economics, business, finance and investing. My personal financial goals are to generate enough passive income to fund my retirement, and along the journey - share my experiences and help the readers.
I am a former investing teacher and business owner, and have an interest in everything related to business and investment. I have a Masters Degree from McGill University and am most interested in value investing, broad macroeconomic and geopolitical trends and precious metals investing.
Currently employed as an Information Specialist, I am constantly monitoring broad based consensus in the global investment community, legendary investor activity as well as corporate insider activity.
I currently invest while continuing to pursue writing on a wide array of investment topics.
Description: Full time investor.
Interests: Precious Metal Investing, Value Investing
I currently work as an analyst for a financial company doing reporting for derivatives. I studied economics in school and previous jobs include insurance and equity trading. I have experience trading equities, options, forex, and futures. At the insurance job I held a casualty license and handled auto claims.
My investing approach is a top-down one with a portfolio based on a diversified set of investment themes. I try to buy when there is "blood in the streets" (ie. gold in 1998).
I'm very much a contrarian by nature, a libertarian, and a follower of Austrian economics.
