I am a individual investor using the "new long" 1-3 year approach to investing. To quote Peter Way "The uncomfortable reality is that long-term investing now can only be accomplished by the hard work of repetitive shorter-term investments.
After graduating cum laude with a BA in economics from Harvard, I worked in hedge funds and investment banking for ~6 years before leaving to manage my own money full time. I am a CFA charterholder and focus mostly on microcaps / event-oriented trades as that is where I think the market tends to be least efficient. I also started a website to track interesting arbitrage opportunities for individual investors (link below) - check it out!
