I'm British but I generally prefer shares listed in the USA. I'm always on the lookout for better shares for my pension fund so I can retire some day.
I claim no authority. When I give opinions, I hope to stimulate thought, research, or feedback.
Fabien is a private investor who likes the value investing style. At a younger age he learned about investing when a friend joined a stock picking competition. Later on he started reading investment books to enhance his knowledge. He is a great fan of Warren Buffet and other value investors. He likes to invest in companies that are cheaply available and have a good business model. Or as Charlie Munger put it: “ It’s better to buy a great business at a reasonable price then a reasonable business at a great price”
Fabien passed the CFA level 1 exam and is eager to complete the full program. He currently works as a financial adviser for a Dutch bank. He is both a holder of a Bachelor degree in Economics from the Inholland University of Applied Sciences, and the securities trader degree from the Dutch Institute for Banking and Securities.
His goal in writing for SA is to help people make better investing decisions. He hopes to guard people from making bad investments and help others to discover good ones. My goal is to move into money management and start my own investment fund one day. Hope my articles will positively influence your investment decisions!
I am a long term value investor, but I am also interested in growth stocks when it is not overpriced.
I enjoy the process of finding out stocks with value, much like a gold-mining experience. Along the way, I also gained a lot of insight on various businesses.
Most of the time, I post articles and comments on Seeking Alpha to get opinions from other people, since it is important to get criticized and avoid the confirmatory bias. I also believe that small investors need to work together to share their research efforts in order to achieve an edge on information.
While I am passionate about investment, I am also passionate about many other things as well, such as Math, Machine Learning, Psychology and Philosophy. I believe life is about having fun, and a big part of that "fun" comes from constant learning and personal improvement.
