I am a former engineer in topography (ESGT Paris 80) and specialized later in metrology or very precise measurement (CERN). I was interested in quantum metrology for a while... I live mostly between California (Santa Monica), Provence-Cote d'Azur (Where my children and grandchildren live) and Sweden (South West Skåne) with my loving wife. I am managing (investment manager) a large and old private family fund and trade personally a medium-size portfolio for over 25 years “Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.” Einstein.
I am professionally a real estate lender/investor in mortgage workouts, involving distressed parties. This area is undercover because it is not priced on exchanges or easy for large funds to move in and out, it is largely a fragmented market based on county specific oversight as well as explicitly government subsidies make it an interesting area to find value. Recreationally, I am a private pilot, sailor and skier. I speak some Japanese and Spanish and have lived and worked on most continents. I manage friends and family self directed 401K's, IRA's, and HSA's as well as my company investments. About 80% of my net worth is in mortgages or real estate, the remaining is in public exchanges.
I am a value investor to the greatest extent possible. I also favor dividend stocks. I try to be a buy-and-hold investor, but sometimes I can't avoid the tempation to ring the register or to accumulate the inevitable tax loss. The main thing I have learned is that I have lost more money by selling too soon than for any other reason. I reside in Henderson, NV.
I am a consultant, independent trader, and analyst. I've worked in commodity trading and trade finance primarily in the agricultural and softs markets. I look for market opportunities using futures and ETFs.
