Glen Bradford MBA contributes to Seeking Alpha primarily to read people's negative feedback so that he can avoid generating unnecessary losses.
The absolute best you can do is give someone an opportunity and incentive to take it.
Take upon yourself worth carrying and enjoy as your own.
"Uncertainty will certainly work for me." - Glen Bradford March 2009.
I am an active private investor, with interests in both markets and private equity.
Until 1999 I was largely invested through my business career. Then I sold to a good offer and, since then, I have concentrated on managing my own money.
I split my funds between trading and investment, with the investment portfolio being much larger. My trading is mostly mechanical and my investment discretionary.
I have worked and invested internationally pretty much all my career. I travel frequently and emerging markets remain a strong interest of mine.
There are many, many people more wealthy than I am, but until I make a big mistake, I am quite comfortable. This means that overall, I am risk averse. That's a difficult position in a world where even cash and bonds are risky.
I am not interested in managing anyone's money and I have nothing to sell, so my posts have no agenda attached. Make of them what you will.
