His experience in communicating analysis to some of the largest investment managers in the world, working as a generalist analyst at a hedge fund, and to helping manage portfolios on the buy-side has helped give him a wide-ranging perspective on investing and identifying market mispricings and what they mean for stock and credit research, and for overall asset allocation and portfolio strategy.
