Currently learning as much as possible about investing in all areas, but focused on stock picking - fundamental & technical analysis for now. Options hopefully later.
I enjoy reading SA posts & comments.
I'm a 38 years old consultant from Antwerp, Belgium. My investment style is comprised of many influences in the areas of (deep) value investing, small cap value, special situations, dividend growth and growth stock picking.
I have 20 years of practical experience in the stock markets. Throughout my professional career, I've done ICT and finance projects for 5 government-owned corporations, 4 banks, 3 investment newsletters, 3 high-tech companies, 2 start-ups, 2 fund managers and one in-house bank.
Atticvs (a pseudonym), has been an active stock market investor since 1980. For the past 10 years he has been managing portfolios full-time for himself as well as for family and a small group of friends. His investment returns have been substantially higher than the overall market averages. He is a strong advocate of fundamental analysis and discounted valuations allied to a clear understanding of current and future economic/business trends and stock market drivers. During a period of 25 years prior to managing investments full-time, he held senior finance, funding and mergers & acquisitions positions with NYSE, Nasdaq and private companies with operations in Europe, Asia, the Middle East, as well as in the USA and spent extensive time working and/or living in each of these regions.
Currently the President & CEO of a publicly traded startup in the temporary staffing industry, specifically what we call the "On-Demand" sector. I have been in the staffing industry for approx 14 years. I started out as an Account Executive for the largest on-demand provider in the country and have been in the staffing industry ever since.
Enjoy spending time with my wife and 3 beautiful children when Im not working. Doesn't have to be anything fancy, a day at the movies or at the park works just fine for me.
