I have worked in the finance industry for 6 years, gaining experience particularly in financial reporting as well as in financial and credit analysis. Currently, I am responsible for risk management.My genuine interest in finance began from the opportunity of visiting the Chicago Board of Trade and talking there with a soybean trader. Our rather brief, but the enlightening conversation was an eye-opener for me. I understood that in order to perform well, I have to be constantly involved in the industry and keep myself updated of what´s happening in the economy, politics etc. This requirement of being on your toes was and still matches my personality. From that moment I have been constantly trying to shape my craft in finance by participating in CFA program (currently CFA Level II candidate), following new accounting standards and reading financial news on daily basis. My portfolio consists of stocks and cash. Cash/Stock ratio is determined based on the current market valuations and near/mid-term recession risk. Stocks that are included in the portfolio are always chosen based on their relative and historical valuation levels. Strong FCF and stable revenues coupled with a high probability of price stimulating catalyst event are mandatory characteristics for my stock selection.
