Started my career as an engineer working in several industries including public transportation, construction and consumer goods - these experiences enabled me to really understand how many industries really work. After my MBA, I worked in corporate finance at Anheuser Busch Inbev where I experienced first hand the importance of strategy in value creation.
At Moneda Asset Management, I refined my investment skills working for the best portfolio managers in the asset class and that is where I really learnt to invest....successfully. I covered several industries ranging from Energy, Transportation and Industrials. Currently, I work in new business development at a major telecom in Chile, those, I won`t be writing about the sector to avoid any appearance of conflict of interest.
As I left the asset management industry and have no conflict of interest (except for the telecom space) nor restrictions, I will be writing about my investment ideas on Seeking Alpha. The purpose of my writing would be mainly to keep myself disciplined, but also, to hopefully receive feedback from the Seeking Alpha community and help others on maximizing their portfolio returns.
I will mainly focus on:
1. Sectors that I have covered which are most sectors except financials
2. Regionally, will be looking at Latam with few exceptions, and
3. Will be looking for value in small and mid cap companies (with few exceptions)
About my investment philosophy
1. I don`t buy into the idea of "value" and "growth", as I believe that all good investment ideas have to be based on a value not identified by the market, thus you may find value in both growth and value companies.
2. I base my analysis on fundamentals on the micro and macro levels.
3. Look for a 2-year investment horizon.
4. If my investment declines 20%, I revise my investment thesis. I would only liquidate if my initial thesis is not valid anymore. If it is still valid, I will increase my position.
Healthcare consultant working in the Data and Analytics space. Investing is a hobby for me; I enjoy learning about industry trends through equity research as well as the strategies, operations and challenges of great companies - and I like making money! I'm a medium-term to long-term investor; I rarely sell an equity after owning it for less than one year.
