I have started this bio with a short description of my professional experience, as I believe this has a relevant influence on my investment strategy and the types of companies I choose to invest in. I am an electrical engineer with professional experience from a range of different industries. I started my career in 2004 with a job in the power transmission industry in New Zealand. I left after two years to take a one-year position as a sailor and assistant engineer aboard an adventure tourism sailing ship operating in the South Pacific Ocean. I then moved to Norway in 2008 and accepted a position as a project and commissioning engineer for Siemens Oil & Gas Offshore. After three years experiencing the inner-workings of the oil and gas industry I was head-hunted for a management role in a large Scandinavian company in the electrical contracting business. My most recent and interesting responsibility in this last role was as project manager for several fast-charging stations for a high-profile EV manufacturer. After completion of those projects in August I took leave from that role and have since been working in a personal capacity to help accelerate the global shift to sustainable transport. I started investing in my late teens with no experience and the naive assumption that my above-average academic ability and understanding of finance would ensure my success. Over the first few years I lost a lot of money, but I saw these losses as the cost of my investing education. I made sure to learn from my experiences and although I am still an amateur investor, the trading strategy I refined in the years that followed has worked well for me in the years since. A key trend I noticed from my early investments was that I was good at finding companies that would go on to experience huge gains, but I was always too early in my predictions and by the time the share price took off I had usually sold out again and often at a loss. The strategy I now use with most success has two main steps: 1. Choose investments based on FA. 2. Time when to buy and sell based on TA. By also limiting my investments to companies operating in industries in which I have an above-average understanding, either from my professional experience as an engineer or from personal interest and research, I further increase the probability that my investment decisions will yield good returns. Another major lesson I have learned is the importance of having a trading system. By defining my trading strategy in detail and always recording my decisions and thinking when I make an investment, I find it much easier to separate out my clear-thinking from emotional influences that will later try to cloud my judgement.
