I am an Israeli citizen- certified as an attorney at law and a portfolio manager. Today I have the privilege to "work" in the field I am passionate about- investing. My mission is to teach and apply value investing in Israel. I am inclined to quantative and empirically based value investing in small cap stocks. At our firm, Quantum Capital Markets, in Petach Tikva, Israel, I apply these strategies to my customers accounts -SMA, IRA and Pension funds. My investment gurus are Warren Buffett, Seth Klarman and Joel Greenblatt. This year I attended the Berkshire Hathaway shareholder meeting for the first time. What an experience!

*The difference between who you are today and who you will be in 5 years is the people you spend time with and the books you read.
*Most people get ahead during the time others waste.
I am an advocate of the acquisition of wisdom (the ability to recognize difference) and being a constant learning machine. We were born into this world ignorant and incoherent and this mental capacity can only be remedied by obtaining wisdom and knowledge vicariously through others or by experience. I prefer both. Modeling is a very effective mental model and overcomes the learning curve of a discipline at an escalating rate. Warren Buffett / John Maynard Keynes / Peter Lynch are the models I use. Inventing the wheel contributes to loss in opportunity costs, inadequacy of conviction in ones conclusions, lack of direction, shortage of confidence to concentrate assets (not over diversifying) and steep expensive learning curves.
Awareness does not bring success. Implementation of awareness develops results, and it is refined results persistently applied that attracts a fortune. A fortune can't be pursued it must be attracted through a definite purpose, definite plan put into continuous action, and concentration of effort that is persevered through all possible tempting distractions.
All is well because all grows better.
Skeptical investor with particular interest in the media sector. Focus on illiquid and under-followed securities. Deep value and strategic thinking. Willing to hold cash and wait for the right pitch. Interested in the philosophy of value investing as well.
