I have studied as a Chemist and a Chemical & Process Engineer and have spent a number of years with diversified commodities producer BHP Billiton. I have recently taken a break from industry to undertake a postgraduate research degree at the University of Oxford. This has afforded me the time to immerse myself in investing and has invigorating a new thirst for bottom-up stock assessment.. I try to make strong company fundamentals the key to my investing decisions; I possess a strong interest in the principles of value investing and am out to learn more and more from the wider investor community. I only invest personally at present and have been trading a portfolio of primarily Mining and Energy stocks for the last 8 years. To extend beyond where I feel most comfortable, I am now trying to learn more about other investments outside of resources (for example retail, media and defense stocks). I envision that my passion will extend beyond a personal capacity, to professional investing following completion of my studies. uk.linkedin.com/in/timothyprose/
Full-time investor searching for A players, clean capital structures & scalable growth. No cigar butts or conventional wisdom. My investment philosophy is similar to how I live my life: acquire a few prized possessions, minimize clutter and maintain flexibility.
I have lived in Hong Kong since 1993 since moving here from the USA. I opened my own trading company in 2003 specializing as a master distributor of food and feed ingredients. I have been managing my own portfolio for more than 20 years and like to keep a divirsified porfolio with a goal of performing as good as the market or better over the long term.
