I manage capital of my family. Do my own research on companies. Invest not speculate. My investing horizon is 20 years plus. Investment backgroud: All the knowledge that I have about investing and markets is mostly self taught. I believe that investing should not be complicated, and has to make sense. The companies, that I decide to become a part owner through the means of common shares, has to have an understandable business model (at least, I have to understand how company makes money), have a distinct features or economic moats which make the business model sustainable, and a reasonable price tag. I am not interested in turnarounds, and fly-by-night companies. Time is the most valuable resource, therefore I concentrate on the best of breed companies. I consider people like Charles Munger, Warren Buffett, David Einhorn, Bruce Berkowitz as my mentors, as I learnt a lot from these gentlemen. My approach: I do not have a specific approach to analyzing companies. I follow the advice of WB, and immerse myself into the company filings, transcripts, presentations, articles and interviews. First things first, so my main objective is to understand the business model of the company and the industry dynamics. All the other factors, like appraisal and forecasting comes next. Currently, I live in Astana, Kazakhstan, Have a wife and a son. Speak fluently Turkish, Russian, English and Kazakh.
