Investment Banker and professional investor. I am an investment banker currently working in a boutique bank in the Middle East/Central Asia region. I have been investing in stocks, bonds, options and foreign exchange for the past twenty years. I hold a Ph.D. in Middle East Economics, and have authored several books. I might hold positions in the stocks and instruments that I recommend. As everyone advises, please take my opinions as inspiration but do your own research and make up your own mind before clicking that “buy” or “sell” button.
