My work consists in procuring investment situations for clients where the estimated monetary value of a quoted financial security is significantly higher than its market cost; thus establishing a margin of safety in investments that allows for market outperformance and a lower risk profile in the long term. During this time I have successfully identified and invested in inefficiently priced financial securities that with few exceptions have outperformed global equity markets.
My experience is further divided into two types of investments:
1.) General Equity Investments: Investments in companies whose true value is unrecognised by equity markets.
+Asset Value. Shares of companies selling for much less than their net asset value, liquidation value or those that have substantial hidden assets.
+Earnings Power Value. Shares of companies selling for much less than their cost of capital times their earnings, normalised earnings or their earnings potential.
+Great businesses at great prices. Shares of companies with excellent ROIC levels and competitive advantages selling for a price unreflective of such characteristics.
2.) Special Situations: Financial opportunities characterised by an unlocking of value via a complicated or uncommon financial structure that tend to be disregarded by market participants.
To realise the aforementioned investments, I read a great number of financial documents, reports and news articles daily and analyse and model my findings. While doing so my strategic framing and approach is two-fold:
+ Defensive Strategy: Monitoring and analysing the composition of the client’s securities portfolio and acting accordingly when the estimated value of a financial security changes.
+ Offensive Strategy: Exploring the global marketplace in search for investment opportunities, analysing them quantitatively and qualitatively and comparing them to the client’s opportunity cost (i.e. cash, current portfolio positions or other potential investments).
Long-only value investor running a fund for accredited investors, and a Marketplace subscription for objective buyside research. Pseudonymous to protect my IR access but if you send me your email address and show me your LinkedIn, I'll show you mine. I'm not like anyone you've ever met and am not doing this for the traditional reasons. I’m always up for a conversation with anyone interested in value investing or mental models.
My Marketplace subscription service, called “Outsourced Analyst,” provides small-mid-sized funds, family offices, or high-net-worth investors the workflow of an analyst for a hundredth of the price. I write objective coverage of high-quality, underfollowed small-caps that I'm working on / following. Subscribers also have early (sometimes exclusive) access to writeups of some of my best ideas like those I've posted on LQDT, CRAI, FC, LGIH, BOOM, CSWI, and so on. Bonus material is thought pieces - I place a lot of emphasis on learning and getting better - so if/when I make mistakes, I'll write up postmortems with what I learned, and maybe they'll help you as well... Membership will be limited to the first 250 subscribers.
Seeking Alpha T&C requires me to disclose that I'm a registered investment advisor; regulations require me to reiterate that nothing I say is investment advice - it's just my Monday-morning-quarterback opinion for your entertainment and amusement. Always do your own due diligence, consider your own financial position, and consult your preferred financial professional before making any investment decision.

I am going to write about public market investing ideas.
All asset classes welcome, but it will likely be predominantly equities.
I will try to be concise and stick to factual analysis to get to the truth.
Discussion focusing on the investment case are highly welcome.
The frequency of posts will depend on how many ideas I find interesting / whether I have time to post. I accept no obligation to update historical posts with new information. I reserve the right to deal in discussed ideas without notification. Do your own work.
