I'm just a long term investor who is eager to read and learn,
My favourite investors, those who inspire me, are Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger, Peter Lynch, Donald Yacktman, James Montier,Jeremy Grantham, Pat Dorsey, Mike Burry and more to come.
Eclectic, long-term oriented investor with a background in telecom, media, insurance (health, life, P&C) and business services companies. Seeking to compound capital at above average rates for an extended period of time. Eager to connect and share views with like-minded investors.
Due to compliance restrictions at my current job I will no longer be writing on Seeking Alpha, I have many ideas already simmering for when I can once again write publicly.
I write about under-valued under-loved and under-appreciated investments. The occasional special situation or large cap that has been unjustifiably slammed may also be covered.
As we like to say here on SA I want an asymmetrical risk/return investment or to quote a master:
“You’re looking for a mispriced gamble. That’s what investing is. And you have to know enough to know whether the gamble is mispriced. That’s value investing.” –Charlie Munger
When found, I'll be sure to let you know.
Lee is the general partner of Qualitas Capital Management, a private investment partnership that pursues capital appreciation by seeking superior risk-adjusted investment returns. The partnership invests in the public equities of high quality firms with solid and consistent growth prospects that Lee believes are significantly undervalued based on fundamental analysis. The partnership has a flexible mandate to invest across all business sectors, global regions, and market capitalizations. The partnership typically focuses on firms that Lee believes are relatively underfollowed and often misunderstood yet have what he views as attractive businesses, valuations, and catalysts.
Prior to forming Qualitas, Lee was a portfolio manager at Gator Capital Management ("Gator Capital"). At Gator Capital, Lee was responsible for launching and solely managing the Gator Opportunities Fund (the "Fund"), an open-end equity mutual fund registered with the SEC. During Lee's tenure as portfolio manager of the Fund, he delivered annualized returns of 11.2% (Institutional Class) / 10.9% (Retail Class) from the Fund's inception and outperformed Russell 2500® Index benchmark by 573 and 545 basis points, respectively, over that period. The Fund was ranked in the top 1% of 399 funds in Morningstar's peer category in its first year from inception and in the top 13% year-to-date through October. The Fund was also ranked 10th out of 447 funds in Lipper's "category killers" table in April for year-to-date performance (Wall Street Journal, 5/4/15).
Prior to joining Gator Capital, Lee was a member of the Fundamental Equities Group at Goldman Sachs Asset Management (GSAM). Lee's responsibilities at GSAM covered the gamut of the fundamental equities investment process from idea origination, research, analysis, and implementation to portfolio sector construction and management, risk monitoring, and strategic review. While at GSAM, Lee contributed significantly to the successful launch and growth of all-cap, mid-cap, small/mid-cap, and long/short equity investment products. Lee also provided analytical coverage primarily of the industrials and technology sectors across all market capitalizations.
Prior to joining GSAM, Lee was a co-founder of Tower Hill Securities, a merchant banking firm that focused on funding global emerging growth companies across various business sectors. Prior to co-founding Tower Hill, Lee was a founding member of the strategic consultancy Mitchell Madison Group, and an associate in the Financial Institutions/Services Practice of management consulting firm A. T. Kearney. Prior to joining A. T. Kearney, Lee was also a Faculty Lecturer at Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson Schools, where he co-taught several courses in applied quantitative and economic analysis with Professors Ben Bernanke and Alan Krueger.
Lee is a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) and a member of the CFA Institute and New York Society of Security Analysts (NYSSA). Lee received his BA from Yale University, his MPA from Princeton University, and his MBA from Stanford University, all with the highest honors and concentrations in economics, finance, and investment management.

I have been investing since October 2008. My initial investment focus was on REITs and other income stocks but have since expanded my universe to include any value situation. I enjoy reading fact-based fundamental analysis and shun emotional arguments.
