I enjoy analyzing the financial health of companies and pointing out areas the market is either not recognizing or ignoring. A long time investor, I put my money where my mouth is. That's why I'm passionate about my positions. I trumpet companies I believe in and back my articles up with data and graphs.

PortfoliV.com is an investment portal project based on running a set of virtual hedge funds. The aim is to build an investment portal based on actual trades made rather than textual commentaries.14 virtual funds based on a variety of themes are managed by the site owner on strict real-life conditions including real-time bid and ask prices, commissions and margin calls.
Site visitors are able to comment on the trades and follow Fund performances. As the site builds a certain amount of feedback the aim is to aggregate these responses and integrate them into the Fund trading decisions. This way the site aims to transform itself onto what can be called an "OpenSource Virtual HedgeFund" that is transparent, but utilizes all sorts of trading techniques used in common Hedge Funds.
The site owner, and the main trader so far, is an independent trader with 10 years of trading experience. He splits the year evenly between living in the US, Europe and Middle East and therefore can make informed trading decisions on a variety of developments in the world especially forex issues. He has a Bachelor's degree in Economics from the University of Virginia and has passed all three levels of the CFA examinations, with his CFA certification pending approval.
