“Having read more than 1,000 books on investing, my disciplined investment strategy is borne from the lessons of Warren Buffett, his teacher Benjamin Graham, and Nobel Laureates from Chicago, Columbia, Pennsylvania, and Yale Universities. Accordingly, I favor owning sustainable, high quality businesses and arbitrage strategies both designed to profit regardless of economic or interest rate direction.”
