I am an independent investor managing personal capital invested in Canadian public equities; primarily micro-, small- and mid-caps. I am a former investment committee member at a well-respected independent Canadian wealth management firm, with a background in investing banking and private equity prior thereto. I am a long-term value investor focused on fundamentals and high-quality companies run by ethical and competent managers. On rare occasions I will take small opportunistic short positions. I take a low-turnover, concentrated portfolio approach and usually hold between just five and 10 investments.
