What Do You Enjoy Most About Your Job:
I really love the intellectually stimulating aspect of investing. 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.
What Are You Involved in Outside of Work:
Outside of work, I really value spending time with my family. I also enjoy lifting weights in the gym, playing golf, reading, traveling and watching sports.
