Thanks for visiting The Emergent Investor blog. I started this site so that you could follow me through my investing journey. My hope is that you will learn along with me. I don’t have much interest in main stream finance, so you may notice the topics I talk about are not necessarily the things you will read about in the financial press. I love doing my own research and I study the things that interest me. I post about the companies and topics I am learning about.

I have been fascinated by financial markets for as long as I can remember. For my thirteenth birthday I asked for stocks, one of which I still own to this day. Since then I have received my undergraduate degree in finance, read countless finance books, finished the CFA program and some of the CMT program, learned a few new languages, and had some pretty crazy experiences working in the asset management, investment banking, and crypto currency industries.

These days I spend most of my time in Brazil doing my own research and training jiu jitsu. If you want to talk about anything I post here, feel free to stay in touch. You can sign up for the free newsletter or add me on social media.

It is my sincere hope that you learn something from this blog and maybe I can spark an interest in one of the investment topics I am passionate about. Thanks again for stopping by and come back anytime!
