As a vegan, I do not want to be a partial owner of companies related to animal cruelty, human cruelty, or cruelty to our planet. Even more rewarding is when my money can help wonderful companies bring positive impact to society. I started as a trader in 2008, then slowly evolved into a value investor and now into a vegan investor. Loss money as a trader, and made it all back as a value investor and then more. My style of investing is mostly a reflection of Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger's teachings. I learned the secret to success is life-long reading about successful people.
