I work on a team that manages a $1.4 billion endowment for a non-profit cancer research organization. Prior, I worked in the credit department of a commercial community bank. Outside of index funds in my 401k, I invest in individual stocks when I see a favorable opportunity. I do my best to keep a diversified portfolio, but tend to find myself most interested in small cap stocks.
I'm an independent trader and researcher. My main investment interest are stocks, but from time to time I also trade in commodities and options. I was a member of Investment Committee in seed capital fund which operates in Poland. I have experience in several consulting projects in a field of companies valuation, due diligence and developing financial strategies for the companies. I have PHD in economics from Jagiellonian University, Cracow.
