I focus on strategic investment management across multiple asset-classes, quantitative data analyses and the creation of multi-asset portfolios. Previously, I have been a finance professional in London where I worked closely at and with the leading names in asset management. I've always enjoyed reading and interacting on Seeking Alpha, and have decided in 2015 to become a contributor to share some of my ideas and thoughts. I look forward to interesting discussions and exchanges about the markets. Visit quantfriend.com for asset allocation, investment strategies and financial market data.
