What was your first job and how did you become interested in investing?

I began as an auditor for an accounting firm. Interestingly, I was able to get exposure to many different industries through this position, which triggered my interest towards analyzing companies. I started with investing in resource stocks and mutual funds back during an up-cycle in metals. I did extremely well and was instantly hooked.

What is your most memorable moment in your investing career thus far?

My most memorable moment in my investing career has to be going through the 1999 bull run and watching the subsequent meltdown. Having seen what happened then, I instantly recognized the opportunity for investors to buy on weakness following the 2008 credit meltdown that crushed the stock market.

What is your investing mantra?

Bottom up. I look at companies rather than a sector and I always combine fundamental research with technical analysis to get the full picture before I invest.
