I follow a blend of value and growth investing. The truly exceptional companies with great returns have growth ahead of them, but come at a value price.
I began investing in the stock market more than 10 years ago. I have experience working on the buy-side for a wealth management firm, a large asset management firm (which managed in excess of $50 billion) and a small hedge fund (AUM of $50m). I am a CFA Level 3 candidate for June 2017.
The purpose and mission for Finsight Funds is to help allocate financial resources where they can provide the most value to the world.

Recently, a reader asked about my anonymity. My response, which I feel is appropriate to share here, was:
"I have thought much about the distinction between myself as a PM and the institution I am founding; while I would love to have my institution accomplish a lot, I do not want resulting personal fame or attention. I would prefer to be out of the limelight. For those reasons, I have decided to promote the institution rather than myself."
