Long time investor with securities positions going back to early 80's. I served as a financial advisor for about 4 years, first at a full service brokerage then as an independent rep for Northwestern Mutual. Currently we reside in metro St Louis, but lived in London for about 10 years. My investment philosophy is to buy and hold with an emphasis on growing income.
I learned investing while studying business administration in college. Courses included financial management, financial derivatives, managerial accounting, financial accounting, operations management, and business policy. I have been able to beat the market in the past by being a contrarian investor that buys stocks that are oversold on fear and concerns. I am sector agnostic but I only invest in business models that I completely understand. I continuously seek to learn and grow and want to improve my process and thus am always open for suggestions.
