Born in Spain, where I lived before moving first to Paris and then to Belgium, where I am currently based, I am a young investor who wants to learn from better and more experienced investors and to earn a decent rate of return on my investments over my entire lifetime.
Follower of the Graham & Dodd investing philosophy, I admire investors such as Warren Buffett, Charlie Munger, Walter J. Schloss, P. Fisher or Peter Lynch. I also learn from other academics such as Bruce Greenwald or Michael Porter.
I try to look for undervalued securities and to buy them when a big enough margin of safety exists. I try to hold them as long as possible, forever being my ideal holding period, as Buffett would say. I don't care about charts, resistances or price averages. I don't care about macroeconomic data. I do care about company fundamentals. I do care about balance sheet valuation. I do care about competitive advantages and earnings power.
Just like everyone else, I like to earn money. But above all I hate losing it.
I am a young in-house counsel in the field of telecoms in Africa and an individual investor aiming for financial independence.
I have been investing for the past six years as a buy and hold value investor.
Investment enthusiast, in a wide variety of arenas. Mostly retired now, but still investing, though at a much slackened pace. My interests lie everywhere from science, to medicine, to gold, to bonds, and to everything in between. Also a car enthusiast. Thanks for reading.
