B.S. in Accountancy from University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign May 2012 Ernst and Young Financial Services Office Assurance January 2012 - present New York, NY I am a small retail investor. I do not short stocks. There are certain equities I cannot own because it would be a violation of the Ernst and Young LLP independence policy. I do not own any shares of Ernst and Young LLP clients.
I am an individual investor in a quest to minimize portfolio rotation.
I am agnostic in terms of growth vs value, but lacking the time, the resources and (most importantly) the brains, I tend to look more among the latter set of opportunities.
I am professionally versed in the European upstream O&G arena, but skeptic on its future (and optimist about the clean-tech momentum of California).
One could argue I should have an edge in European stocks: I am from Spain and based in the UK, but like Buffett says, it's far better to buy a wonderful company at a fair price than a fair company at a wonderful price. So my portfolio is OW US and UW Europe.
N.B. If some of my comments are overly cynic, don't be offended, just an invitation to look after your $ more carefully.
Alex Lega is Head of Investment at an independent financial company
Mr Lega was formerly working for a large Investment Bank in London where he was advising institutional clients on complex structured products strategies and various investment opportunities. In 2006, realizing how Europe would reach a dead end sooner rather than later, Mr Lega decided to bet on Asia and left the UK for the "tiny" (yet vibrant) city state of Singapore. Over the past 5 years, he has developed a strong network in Asia allowing him to gain in-depth knowledge of the culture and economics of the region.
Since, Mr Lega has been known for pragmatic and accurate warnings on the UK and the US economies, his bullishness on Asia and for calling the rise of Commodity prices, Asian Equities, Real Estate and Intellectual Property.
