I am a private full-time investor focusing on value investing and arbitrage opportunities and I am currently in the process of launching a small HF in Hong Kong. I have 11 years experience in finance, the last 8 of which on D1 Index trading desk at 2 major international banks (ETFs, Swaps, Futures but also including special sits / stub trading / Index rebal trading and index arb). I believe that the biggest opportunities exist in small and micro-cap opportunities as they are much less covered by the big banks (at the end of the day what value does another research report on msft add?) and I focus on companies that trade at a significant discount to where I see fair value to provide me with a sufficient margin of safety. I am a holder of the CFA designation.
