I hold a bcomm degree, honors in finance, from Carleton University. I wrote the CFA level 1 exam in December 2010, and plan to pursue the CFA charter. I play poker professionally as my primary source of income. I believe this gives me in an edge in the investing community. I find myself incorporating similar concepts from poker into my investing strategies. Each practice is about risk, reward, and potential payout. I run my own investment blog at www.seekingvalueinvestments.com. The focus of the blog is to use value-oriented investing approach to uncover investment opportunities.
