What Do You Enjoy Most About Your Job:
I love the intellectual stimulation. I read, think and learn about businesses and industries every day. I get to talk, and ask questions to industry experts and management teams around the world. The job doesn’t stop here. I also try to understand what others in the market are thinking and decide if I can form a different view that can ultimately lead to an investment thesis. I will never retire from investing.
