As a portfolio manager, I am primarily involved in making decisions on various investment opportunities. As a part of team, I have been excelling at providing insights on each steps of making investment decisions. During the negotiations for numerous mining projects mergers and acquisitions, I was responsible for communicating with stakeholders to gather the information on counterparts that were mostly major supranational companies in mining industry. Shares of those companies are listed in major stock exchanges including Toronto, Hong Kong, London, and Sydney. Additionally, I have analyzed media reports and certain proprietary database records to track the history of mining projects as a prospective target for the investment. To identify mispriced securities, I also analyzed the governance structure of the company and shareholding structure which might suppress the offered selling price. The fact that companies in deals are mostly multinationals helps me familiarize with foreign stock exchanges to use appropriate tools to research or investigate up-to-date developments. Skills that I used for pooling mortgage data to produce the bidding price for prospective Non-performing Loans auctioned by financial institutions have been the one of the great assets for me to utilize DCF valuation modeling. Also, those skills are indispensable for the valuation of carbon price that is mostly affected by political issues rather than simply by supply and demand dynamics. Renewable energy market is also emerging by the fact that environmental issues are not a just economic issues but also geopolitical issues. Insights that are coming from diverse perspectives have opened my eyes on behavioral economics to look at issues from different minds. All the confusing factors and non-explicable dynamics involving in investments persuaded me to never stop to teach myself so that I pursued egregiously to seek the knowledge which can be found in CFA program. I have finally become a CFA Chaterholder last year and never have regretted the efforts and times put in.
