My company Evago Global Capital is primarily an investment bank that focuses on the emerging markets and I speak about emerging markets, I am really speaking about Africa. This is the only market that excites me because of the attractive demographics, size of market, demand, entrepreneurial nature of the people, the natural resources most of which remain unexploited and so much more.
My thinking of the market is informed by my diverse educational and professional background in law, government, NGO and finance.
It is my belief that finance needs a new meta narrative, it is not necessarily the case that classical financial tools and macroeconomic concepts do not work but they can only work within the confines of a different narrative or totalizing schema where finance becomes truly a tool or a servant with which we can solve global challenges rather than it being our master.
Money can magnify wisdom or stupidity. The outcome of the use of money is determined by the person harnessing the force of money.
The finance industry needs to move from seeking money for the sake of having it to harnessing money for concrete and wise purposes.
This is important because money is a force that is a faithful servant but a terrible master and it is a force that can only be correctly harnessed when one has the correct understanding of the purpose of money as a force of good and not evil.

Investing has been my hobby for many years. I am an engineer in Silicon Valley.

I started my career working for a boutique consulting firm that was acquired by a Big 6 accounting firm to complement its management consulting group (back then there were the Big 8). Later I took a position with a Fortune 200 company. I've chosen to spend the last part of my career working at a small college, focusing on my economic and market interests. Most of my research and resulting analysis come from my coursework in which I try to help my students see the "big picture" and draw connections between economic events.
I've developed the Econ P.I. website to accurately describe economic conditions and determine how financial markets might be impacted. I do not have an agenda to push. Rather, I'm interested in determining what drives markets and identifying emerging trends.
Up until a century ago, there appears to have been a fairly equal emphasis on economic theory and observation. Although the interest in economics has probably always been a consequence of the need of the state to acquire resources, we are now at the point where the discipline of economics is both completely at the service of ideological camps and completely convinced of its own objectivity and scientific underpinnings.
I have taken an interest in markets since 2008, after which my already scant regard for conventional wisdom in the modern social sciences plunged even further. I try to understand historical price behavior and see what it says about present market conditions.

Valuation is more of an art than a science. I am an individual investor with a keen interest in equity research and valuations.

I manage the capital of only a handful of families and I see it as my number one job to protect their financial security. They don’t pay me to sell them investment products, beat an index, abandon true investing for mindless diversification or follow the Wall Street lemmings down the primrose path. I manage their money exactly as I manage my own so I don’t take any risk at all unless I strongly believe it is worth taking.
Blogging here on SA is part of my research. I write to find out what I think.
