I am a self-educated and passionate equity investor. I began my financial journey when I opened my portfolio in May 2009 and began investing in equities. I have been actively managing my portfolio ever since and I have utterly enjoyed the experience. I now consider myself a value investor. I wholeheartedly believe in the value investing philosophy and that the value investing method is the most foolproof way to consistently achieve above-market returns. I would greatly appreciate it if you could constructively criticize my articles. The more honest the better!
